Wordley Martin Premium Riding Surfaces is proud to be the Official Footing Partner of this year’s Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix! In 2012 Wordley Martin installed the ring at Scott Keach’s Southern Cross Equestrian, and we will continue to support the Eventing Prix in this year’s 3rd season.
Scott Keach and Max Corcoran are the organizers behind these two great days of show jumping. In an interview this morning, Scott said that (being a prior event rider) he wanted to create a jumping prix style format for event riders that would create a team environment and raise the pressure of competition in a true show jumping format. “Last year you could feel the tension as event riders aren’t used to show jumping under this sort of pressure for prize money. It’s a great format and this year will be even more exciting!”
The event is free and open to the public, but if you aren’t local or can’t attend on Tuesday March 8th, there will be a live feed provided by Joel Wiessner, owner producer of EQTV and commentary will be provided by Jenni Autry of Eventing Nation and event organizer, Max Corcoran.
Eventing Nation has posted the most updated rider list and will keep us informed on the up to the minute action!
Jennie Brannigan, pictured here during her win at the 2015 Eventing Prix, is once again on the entry list, as well as many other top international event riders. The Olympic committees from both the US and Canada are using this event as an opportunity to work with riders and it’s a great prep for Red Hills next weekend!
Stay tuned for all the news starting Monday of next week. Good luck riders!
