Ocala is the Eventing capital of the US, and FL hosts 2 of 6 Olympic-level competitions in the US. Some of the best horse and rider pairs from around the globe come to compete on the perfect grass on the rolling hills of this 900 acre farm. The 9,700 square foot OJC Clubhouse sits 200 feet above sea level, the second highest point in Central Florida. The farm's rolling hills are reminiscent of England and Virginia, and the views from the Clubhouse allow for simultaneous viewing of 270 degrees of multiple cross-country jumping efforts from a single viewpoint!
The competition consists of 3 phases: dressage (Thurs & Fri), show jumping and cross country jumping (Sat & Sun). Spectators can watch from multiple vantage points and are close to the action for all phases. Tailgating encouraged on Sat & Sun!
Enjoy a day in the country!! The festival consists of music, food&drinks, shopping and more. There will be a kid zone with activities - horse stick races, face painting, games and other activities (courtesy of YMCA). Children under 16, seniors (65+), military and first responders receive FREE admission.
All can attend, but folks with limited mobility need to be aware that viewing the competition ring and cross country is accessed via grassy paths. Shuttles from parking will be available. More info: www.OJC3de.com Photo Credit: Shannon Brinkman
