The Ocala International 3-Day Festival of Eventing, scheduled for April 8-12 at the Florida Horse Park, has been canceled. The event was to host CCI3*-L, CCI2*-L and CCI1*-L as well as horse trials divisions.
The Florida Horse Park has issued the following statement:
“We have held on as long as we could, but with the CDC recommending the cancellation of group gatherings of 10 or less people for the next 8 weeks, we unfortunately have to cancel the Ocala International Festival of Eventing, held April 8-12, and the rest of scheduled events through April 30.
“We can’t thank all of you enough for the support you’ve extended over the last week. We look forward to seeing you all on the other side of this. We will also keep you updated, if we can get this FEI rescheduled to a different date.”
Included in the cancelation window are Pony Club rallies, a POP schooling show, polo, Southeast Dressage, hunter/jumper and western events.
To date 27 U.S. events have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can view a full list here.
Our support and sympathies are with impacted organizers, venues and competitors during these difficult times.
