Wellington, FL - January 29, 2014 - Citrus Series Horse Show Wellington will offer two Tuesday shows in February. The first comes right up on Feb. 4 and the second on Feb. 18. The ring will open for flat at noon with classes kicking off at 1 p.m.  

 

Citrus Series added the Tuesdays during the winter season at the request of trainers, owners and breeders who want to bring developing horses and riders to the popular new show. The regular monthly show will be held on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21-22. Citrus Series is an ideal and affordable way for horses and riders to gain valuable competition mileage.


Citrus Series shows are held at Jim Brandon Equestrian Center at Okeeheelee Park, a wonderful facility offering great footing, permanent stalls, plenty of parking and permanent restrooms. Citrus Series offers beautiful courses and decoration- perfect to prep for shows like WEF. Plus, the show series is extremely user friendly. They offer warm-ups and do-over options to make certain horses and riders leave with a positive experience under their belt.

 

"It is ridiculously affordable," said James Lala, Citrus Series Manager. "We have produced a really great way to get horses and riders ready for the bigger AA circuits. We got great reviews on the first show and we are really excited to offer the new Tuesdays in February. We hope to see you all there!"


Here is what clients had to say about the first show:

 

"It is so close. It is unbelievably easy. I love this. This show offers all the flowers and the color. The ring is beautifully set. They've set it so I can do hunter classes and a couple of jumper classes." ~ Cynthia Hankins


"This is a great opportunity especially for people who have horses for sale and kids who want to go in the ring without so much pressure, before they go into the big circuit. It is also great for horses that need to develop and horses that you want to practice with under the lights with good footing. They have great stabling and it's easy access within only a few minutes from our barns and WEF. It is perhaps an hour or two hours out of your day when you can accomplish so much."  ~ Ivan Rakowsky, Team Rakowsky

 

"It was great to be able to compete over two different courses at one height and then jump similar tracks a little bit bigger. The difference between his first trip and his last was like night and day. I couldn't get this kind of experience in another show setting anywhere. Plus, the facility and the footing are really fantastic. It is easy to ship in and show. I had no idea it was so close." ~ Salim Radi


"It is a great place to bring young horses. I just got this horse two weeks ago as a sale horse. I don't want to sell a horse that I'm not familiar with in the ring. So I like to show the horses myself, but I didn't want to invest a lot of money. It is a perfect opportunity- no pressure. He was great. I couldn't be happier. This is the way a horse show should be."  ~ Kama Godek
