Thank you Midge Koontz with Keller Williams for providing these awesome photos in the slide show.

I’m looking forward to attending the Live Oak International Driving Event this year…. I’ve never been to this event before, so hopefully this year I will finally have the opportunity to go. I’m not sure what all to expect, but it should be awesome.

Ocala, FL is considered the Horse Capital of the World. We have over 600 working farms throughout our county. There are so many horse related events that take place each year. So take your pick and see for yourself by attending one or all of the local events and let me know what you think. Or maybe I will just see you there!

Combined Driving Competition welcomes leading drivers, trainers, coaches and owners from Europe and North America. The event draws  thousands of people to the area each year.

The Tentative Schedule is:

Thursday, March 22, 9am FEI Driven Dressage
