    Default HITS Ocala spectating questions January 30 weekend

    I will be in Orlando the last weekend of January (S.O. has a seminar and I'm along for the ride) and, in trying to think of something to do other than outlet shop (which I'm trying to avoid), I was thinking of driving over to the horse show on Sat. or Sun. to spectate.

    Is this a good weekend to watch the show? About how much of a drive is the show ground from Orlando?

    That particular weekend is unrated. Still worth watching if you're around, just may not be as big as some of the later, rated weeks.

    The drive isn't bad. Its about 1.5-2 hours from my house, which is a little past Orlando, so I think it would be around an hour for you.

    The big event of the unrated week is the Ch/AA jumper stake. So if that interests you, go watch. There are still vendors at these shows so you can find some neat stuff to buy.

    If you have nothing else to do, its worth going and hanging out.
