We’re pleased to bring you the first official look at the entry list and details for the upcoming $50,000 MARS Eventing Showcase to be held February 8-9 at the Global Dressage Facility in Wellington, Florida. The 32 invited riders will bring forward a maximum of two horses each to compete in a condensed three-phase format that returns to Wellington after a two-year hiatus.
You may recall former hat-trick champion Boyd Martin winning in thrilling fashion during the three years that this Showcase initially ran — will see see another win for Boyd? Or will a new champion be crowned following cross country on Sunday?
The MARS Eventing Showcase will kick off with dressage on Saturday, February 8 and conclude with show jumping followed by cross country on Sunday, February 9.
Admission is free to the public. For those wanting a true hospitality experience, Wellington style, there are VIP tickets and packages up for grabs at this link. Options are available for both single seats/single days as well as tables and full-spectrum VIP experiences. The Showcase could also use a couple more volunteers, which is a truly great opportunity for someone to experience an entirely different style of eventing — sign up at EventingVolunteers.com. We also hear that Tom Crisp is still on the hunt for an Advanced horse to take around — let us know if you have a line on a good catch ride!
Take a look at the current entry list below. Remember that riders may only bring forward a maximum of two horses, and this list is subject to change. We’ll also be on the ground in Wellington bringing you up-to-the-minute action, so stay tuned for much more. Go Eventing!
