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 to hold 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!
