Grand Oaks Horse Trials, running November 23-24 in Lady Lake, Florida, has announced the addition of $5000 in prize money that will be spread throughout the ten divisions running. With divisions ranging from Preliminary and Modified to Beginner Novice, there is ample opportunity to give young horses a few more miles or test the waters for a move up to end the season. Cash prizes will now be offered through third place in each division, and entries have been extended through tomorrow evening, November 20, with no late fee.
Thanks to the generosity of Nupafeed USA and Triple Crown Feed, the allocation will be distributed across both the Open and Rider divisions for each level. This is a wonderful opportunity for riders to compete for prize money, and Event Logistics Manager Katie Wentz says that Grand Oaks wants to give riders a “big show feel.”
“We are a small show giving riders a feel of being at a big show,” Katie explained. “There is something for everyone at Grand Oaks, and we really believe in the Modified level and want to support it. We’ve roped off the galloping lanes and we’re expecting a lot of spectators as we’ve been advertising throughout the Villages community and have 200,000 people on our doorstep.”
