There was big news out of The Carolina Horse Park yesterday. The Cloud 11 ~ Gavilan North LLC Carolina International has ponied up prize money to the tune of $100,000 for this year’s event. Though the four-star class will get the lion’s share of the purse, money will be distributed among all divisions, down to Training level. This event is a staple on the Area II calendar, and it opens today, so be sure to get those entries in pronto if you want a piece of the prize.
