We took 5 horses to Ocala for the first horse trials of the season!

Nice results for the season opener. Natalie 2nd, Michelle R. 5th and I managed a win, 2nd and 9th with my three! The Winter Equestrian Festival is in full swing. We have several hunters showing and the event horses and riders are practicing in a few classes at WEF as well as several dressage shows.

The big news is the DERBYCROSS competition, because a large contingent of eventers came to Wellington. It was a blast to have all our friends come to town. PRO picked a great weekend in March for the Derbycross, as it happens to be Nations Cup Weekend, the biggest competition of the year down here! All the eventers came for the fun; Phillip, Allison, Sinead, Clark, Will Coleman and Faudree, Hannah, and the Canadians! The event was a success and we are already looking forward to Derbycross next year!

Also, the week of Derbycross, the eventers got to take center stage in another entertaining venue. The nighttime Dressage Under the Stars at Player’s Club featured all event riders! I rode Mike’s horse Ollie in a fun Freestyle to Enya music. The night was entertaining to say the least!
