    Prize List:2017HuntCountryProgram-June 3-4

    Join us for a fun June Show at The Grand Oaks just south of Ocala in The Villages...

    New for June will be our use of the lower fiber arena with an added warm up area so we can split out the walk trot classes in another section of the fiber arena and bring over a small number of divisions normally held out on the grass. This is to give our grass arena a month or two during the summer to grow and stay beautiful for the fall shows.  This will also mean a few divisions will move back into the Covered arena, so be sure and take a look at the class schedule on this page.

    Did you know we've negotiated not only a great rate at The Microtel, but also at The Hampton Inn in The Villages? The Hampton Inn is not far at all from the showgrounds, and is also quite close to the nightlife and eateries of Lake Sumter Landing...give it a try!

    Announcing the first annual "Battle of the Barns" summertime multi-day show with competition and fun activities for all riders...

    On your entry form you'll be asked to state what farm/barn or trainer you're affiliated with.   All your points will be tabulated throughout the show days and nights no matter what the activity (and everything counts!!) and added to your team's roster.  At the end of the show, the top 5 rider's points from each barn (each rider may ride more than one horse or pony throughout the show) will be reported and $ and prizes awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place barns with the most points from their top 5 riders.  The final placings will be released on Monday after the show and announced in a photo ad campaign on Facebook as well as Instagram and on this website.

    SO.... you don't have to be a barn with a bazillion riders - just five really good ones !!!

    You can earn extra points and $$$  for your barn by getting sponsorships for prizes for the show!!!!!
