The show kicks off on Monday, March 4 with a $1,000 1.15-meter speed class sponsored by Doug Hannum Equine Therapy. The 1.30-meter class will take place Tuesday, March 5 in a team format. The first round will determine the team results, and the top 10 combinations — or all pairs that jump clear in the first round — will return for the second round jump-off.
In it’s 6th consecutive year, the Ocala Horse Properties’ Eventing Prix Invitational promises an exciting level of show jumping competition and increased prize money to international level event riders. The event, held March 4th & 5th, has become one of the most anticipated events in the Marion County community.
The Eventing Prix Invitational was created by incoming USEA President, Max Corcoran, and international show jumper, Scott Keach, in 2013. This event, held at their Southern Cross Equestrian, showcases top level event riders show jumping against the clock, in an effort to win team and individual prize money. Since Ocala is a mecca for international level event riders, the ability to offer this type of show jumping experience to those equestrians has become wildly popular. Throw in the increased sponsorship prize money reaching the $20K mark, and it’s guaranteed to be a day of nail biting competition!
Last year the top individual prize went to Will Coleman, aboard Gideon, and the top team prize went to Team Unstable for the second year in a row (Sara K. Murphy, Sharon White, Bobby Meyerhoff and Joe Meyer). The competition was a great success, showcasing the region’s great equestrian talent to a large crowd of spectators, sponsors and fellow equestrians.
Monday March 4th is the 1.15m Welcome Class sponsored by Doug Hannum Equine Therapy, followed by the 1.30m Ocala Horse Properties’ Eventing Prix on Tuesday the 5th. This year promises to be entertaining, with an early list of world class entries assuring that the competition will be fierce!
This year’s 8 captains who are in the process of finalizing their 4 person teams are: Sara Murphy (USA) Tammy Smith (USA), Lauren Kieffer (USA), Jenny Brannigan (USA), Selena O’Hanlon (Canada), Hallie Coon (U25), Justine Dutton (UK), Shannon Baker (Wild Card).
Chris Barnard will take over from Marc Donovan this year as course designer. Chris, a well known Richard Jeffery protege, has designed the AEC’s at Tryon, NAYC, Rebecca Farm, Plantation Field International, Red Hills, The Fork, Fair Hill International, Jersey Fresh and many others!
