Invites are out for a $50,000 Eventing Showcase in Wellington, FL

We bet that Buck is on the invitation list but he might be disappointed that he can only bring two horses.

A lucky group of eventers started receiving emails today with an invitation to the Wellington Eventing Showcase, January 30-31 at the Equestrian Village in Wellington, FL. Riders may show up to two horses to compete for $50,000 in prizes. Approximately only  30 horse and rider combinations will be invited. This is not an FEI, USEF or USEA recognized show.

The dressage test will be the CIC*** Test A, and all show jumps and cross-country jumps will be advanced dimensions. The show jumping course designer will be Richard Jeffery. The cross-country course designer will be Captain Mark Phillips. Riders will tackle a 2000 m course consisting of 20 jumping efforts at a speed of 530 mpm.

Dressage will be held on Friday. Show jumping will be held Saturday morning and the cross-country will take place in the afternoon.

This sounds like an amazing opportunity to showcase Eventing in Wellington and an unbelievable opportunity for the riders to earn some serious prize money. We will provide more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, book your flight! Florida in January is a good place to be.
