Hello from the second annual Ocala Jockey Club International Three-Day Event! EN are delighted to return at Erik and Pavla Nygaard’s stunning Ocala Jockey Club Farm in Reddick, Florida to bring you all the action from the CIC3*, CCI2* and CCI1*.

The competition is officially underway following this afternoon’s CCI first horse inspection. All 41 CCI2* horses presented to the ground jury of Jane Hamlin (USA) and Peter Grey (CAN) were accepted.

The holding box grew quite crowded throughout the CCI1* inspection, with Robert Stevenson (USA) and Jo Young (CAN) ultimately accepting all but one horse, Karen Conk’s mount Time For Roses. A total of 92 horses move forward to dressage in the packed CCI1* division.

We saw a striking sunset silhouette the horses during the late afternoon ring familiarization. Fredericks Equestrian is once again sponsoring the Competitors’ Tent for the riders, and the grounds are abuzz with excitement as we prepare to kick off the action with dressage tomorrow.

Dressage starts at 9 a.m. EST tomorrow with the full CCI2* division going tomorrow, followed by the first half of the CCI1* division starting at 9 a.m. EST. CCI1* dressage continues on Friday at 9 a.m. EST, with CIC3* dressage also starting at 9 a.m. Friday. Click here to view ride times for all the divisions.
