Hollings did a great job getting the event at the horse park running smooth!
Many thanks to all the volunteer's and Lesli Cohen who organized that part of it
Dressage started at 7:30 and event ended at 4:30 with the completion of Int. show jump. All phases of X/C went well, I think only 2 falls and none with injuries!
All in all it was a beautiful day in Ocala!

I was just about to start a thread along these lines when I saw yours! Yes, the Hollings did an outstanding job. It was my horse's/my first intermediate and it was a great experience!

Even the rain was nice enough to hold off until today :).

I was a jump judge yesterday and I thought all the cross country courses ran amazing! I have been out of eventing and into show jumping for a few years but continued to volunteer for events at the horse park and this was by far the safest cross country course that I have seen in a while and made me want to dabble in eventing again after a 5 years hiatus. I personally witnessed one of the falls at my fence and it was nothing more than a run out. The courses were incredibly inviting and probably a confidence builder for everyone who rode there. I hope to see a lot of people there at future events, including myself!

i was talking with jen while she setting the xc courses, she said she was making everything very inviting for all levels. i think she and jon and all the vol's did a wonderful job.so glad someone is getting in there(the horse park) and trying to make a go of it and not just talking about doing something. i will support jen/jon;s shows,be it by entries or helping out when i can.congrats on a successful first show

I volunteered there also yesterday- the show ran like a well-oiled machine! Enjoyed training a new volunteer to do cross country jump judging- Lesli does a good job recruiting people. I am surprised that we don't have more volunteers who are riders though....so why is that?
It was good to see the Horse Park being used this weekend as well- Polo was setting up as the Horse Trials were finishing and there was driving event scheduled the next day- this is a good thing- we want to keep that park open:yes:

I had a great day volunteering. Certainly didn't hurt that the weather was perfect, but everything ran well and it is impressive to successfully run Elementary through Intermediate all on time.
