Will Coleman has been a long time client of Wordley Martin Equestrian, first hiring us 10 years ago to install his ring at Tivoli Farm in Virginia. More recently we designed and installed two new arena’s (jump and dressage) at his new facility in Ocala, Florida. Each year we truly enjoy watching Will compete at the Ocala Horse Properties Eventing Prix, and this year we send him a heartfelt congratulations on his 3rd consecutive win at the 2020 event!
Coleman chose wisely in returning with TKS Cooley for this competition, who also won in 2019. The bay Irish Sport Horse Gelding (owned by the TKS Cooley Syndicate) has never had a rail in his eventing career. Although they weren’t the fastest, this pair snagged the win, as TKS Cooley also laid down the only clear round in a thrilling jump off performance. Coleman’s stellar ride was followed by Karl Slezak in second aboard his own Fernhill Wishes, and young professional Mia Farley stole 3rd, on her own BGS Firecracker.
Top 10 Finishers were as follows:
Will Coleman and TKS Cooley
Karl Slezak and Fernhill Wishes
Mia Farley and BGS Firecracker
Colleen Loach and FE Golden Eye
Liz Halliday-Sharp and Cooley Quicksilver
Lauren Kieffer Nicholson and Paramount Importance
Rebecca Brown and Dassett Choice
Sharon White and Claus 63
Ali Knowles and Ms. Poppins
Hallie Coon and Cooley SOS
