We are counting down to the highly anticipated $20,000 Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix Invitational, be held on Tuesday, March 3 at Southern Cross Equestrian in Reddick, FL. A total of 34 entries have been accepted for the competition’s seventh running, with another 12 on the waitlist.
Accepted entries [updated Feb. 28]:
The concept for the event was launched in 2013 by Max Corcoran and Scott Keach, who are based out of Southern Cross Equestrian. Max and Scott recognized the need to create a competition for event riders that simulated the atmosphere and pressure experienced at the grand prix show jumping level. The competition will feature a 1.30m track designed by Chris Barnard, with pairs who are clear and inside the time in the first round proceeding to the jump-off.
Prize money will be distributed through 12th place individually, and EquiJet has also generously put forth a $5,000 voucher for the winner to use on a flight for their horse.
The course walk is at 12:30 p.m., with the first horse in the ring at 2:30 p.m. ET. A free live stream will be provided by EQTV featuring commentary by John Kyle and Cathy Wieschhoff.
Southern Cross Equestrian is located at 13440 NW Hwy 225 in Reddick, FL. Learn more about the Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix Invitational here.
