It’s a busy weekend at the Rocking Horse Winter I Horse Trials in Altoona, Fla., with more than 500 horses competing. This is the first event for many this year and it’s good to see so many out stretching their legs.

The upper levels boasted extremely healthy numbers with a whopping 88 Intermediate entries competing across five divisions, another 11 entries in the Intermediate/Preliminary and a staggering 132 Preliminary horses filling eight divisions.

Intermediate and Preliminary wrapped up their competition on Friday and Saturday, with some showing in a one-day format and others over two days. Buck Davidson dominated the Intermediate divisions, picking up three wins riding Copper Beach, Petite Flower and ever dependable Ballynoe Castle RM. Jessica Schulz with Lock N’ Load and Clayton Fredericks with FE Bowman also picked up Intermediate wins.

Beginner Novice through Training divisions are pinning their winners today and you can check out the complete long list of results at the link below. Thehorsepesterer is posting videos on his YouTube channel, too. Click here to get an eye on the action!
