The 2015 eventing season kicks off this weekend at Ocala Horse Properties Winter I Horse Trials in Ocala, and Buck Davidson is easing back into the swing of things with just 13 rides. No big deal, right?

14 rides? No big deal!

13 rides? No big deal!

Marilyn Little and Jennie Brannigan both have eight rides apiece. Jennie will be riding Debbie Rosen’s The Alchemyst, who is currently for sale, in the Open Intermediate division. There are 15 entries in Open Intermediate, including last year’s Galway Downs CCI* winner RF Scandalous and Eventing 25 listed combination Bailey Moran and Loughnatousa Caislean.

Andrea Davidson will make her debut with Escariz Du Rona, her wedding present from Buck, in Novice. Elisa Wallace will also have her new Mustang mare Hwin out at Novice. We’re also excited to see Liz Halliday-Sharp compete Cooley Elusive in her first ever event on the East Coast.

Best of luck to all the horses and riders as they get the season started down in Florida. Click here to view the full list of entries, and remember to check back to EN on Saturday and Sunday for score updates, photos and the social media buzz as the new season officially gets underway!
