Tuesday News & Notes from Ocala Horse Properties

How cool is this? Not only have twelve East Coast-based horses — including the Ocala Horse Properties travel grant winners! — landed safely from their first-class flight to Rebecca Farm, their arrival was actually caught on camera and documented for a local news channel.

We’re SO excited to return to Big Sky Country for Rebecca Farm’s unique event, and we’ll be bringing some super coverage to you via our on-site reporter, Erin Tomson. Keep it locked onto EN for all the news and updates you need,

Tuesday News & Notes from Around the World:

The US Equestrian Trust has awarded Fair Hill the biggest non-profit grant of its 2022 allocations. The much-loved venue has been given $10,000 to help support improvements to the infrastructure on site, giving competitors plenty to look forward to when they return to Maryland. [Roll on that five-star]

We can’t all be lucky enough to have our horses on full-service livery yards, where all the dirty stuff is done and the fun bits are the focus. But ask any backyard barn owner and they’ll probably tell you they wouldn’t trade having their horses at home for anything. There are plenty of pros and cons to the situation — as this funny piece from Heels Down points out. [Flip-flops for mucking out? Groundbreaking.]

You might get husband envy from this one. If you’ve ever daydreamed of having the perfect horse simply appear in a stable one day, you’ll love this story of an international surprise gift and some serious logistics-wrangling. [I’m updating my Hinge profile]

All hail Ingrid KlimkeThe superstar isn’t just on the longlist for the German eventing team at the World Championships in September — she’s also just been selected for the German dressage team with her Grand Prix partner Franziskus 15. [Is there anything she can’t do?]

Sponsor Corner:

I can’t stop thinking about this gorgeous house and barn near the Florida Horse Park. With 38 stalls in total, 12 paddocks, a main residence and a staff house, it’s a turnkey equestrian centre set-up that’ll help you hit the ground running if you’ve had an Ocala move on the cards.
