Grand Oaks Hunt Country Show Jan 27-28!!!

Stabling reservations due now by Sunday for our next show at Grand Oaks Jan 27-28.  Entries due by the Tuesday before the show in order to hold any stabling.  Enter by this coming Sunday and get $5.00 off !!  Judges this month are Scott Hofstetter “R”, Linda Mancini, “R”, Robin Swinderman “R”,  Jan Massaro “R” and Kristen Freeman-Lowrey, “R”.  Better start polishing those stirrups!!

Be sure and take a look at the classes for the Grand Oaks Hunt Country shows – all new numbering, new divisions and lots of new classics and medals….

We’ll be using a combination of permanent and tent stabling for this show.  All depends on the numbers of stalls each farm needs as to who goes where. AND – we’ll be in the new fiber arena!!!  Very important we get the stabling numbers by Sunday as we have to have time to build the tent stabling needed, and set up as many arenas as needed.  The new arena is so huge, we may have to issue bagged lunches at the gate as it will take a while to get back to it….

Should be good weather for the show, for a change!! This show will be a good time to explore “Express Checkout” – the show secretary can close your bill out for you and Gayle will send you a pdf of your receipt on the Tuesday after the show.  After you show come get your ribbons but skip the line at checkout!

The Hampton Inn in The Villages just a few miles away has renewed their preferred pricing with Horse Shows in the Park.  Their info is listed on the hotel listing under the event date. Keep in mind this is the “high season” here in The Villages at all the hotels and eateries – as all the winter folks are down from up north…and who can blame them! The RV Park is full.  If you need a golf cart – call Lori at 352-750-5500 ext 231.

If you have a large party that wants to go to the Bistro for lunch or dinner – let them know ahead of time and reserve a table…that way you know it’s  yours…
