    Default Anyone else in Ocala?

    I am having a delightful time here at the HITS shows - this week is just lessons and ticketed schooling but it is wonderful. The weather is fine, my horse is behaving and I am having a great time just hanging out. Would love to catch up with anyone else at the shows and hear how everyone is doing.

    PS - it seems like an awful lot of the TB farms are for sale. Seems like the TB industry is hit hard by the recession?

    We've been showing at HITS Ocala for the last 6+ years and actually moved from NY to Florida because we enjoyed it so much.

    Since our horses are relatively young we tend to show every other week and give them a week off in between. What rings are you showing in, perhaps we will cross paths, I love putting faces to COTH names!

    Yep! Much like MCarverS, I liked it down here so much that I bought a farm and moved permanently! This week was an off week for me (just some schooling), but I'm showing all next week. I also have another COTHer staying with me for a few weeks, so there's a few of us here at least
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    We just schooled this week but I will probably be doing the lowest of the hunter divisions as my horse is really green. Would love to meet both of you My horse's name is the same as my bulletin boad name.

    Perhaps we should pick a night and do a COTH dinner? I'd love to get to meet some other COTHers!

    Yes, bring a parka and a bathing suit. And be prepared to wear them both on the same day! Good luck and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!

    Here for the first time as well!! I'm in Adult Boot Camp and hope to show in the adults this weekend - modifieds on Friday and middles on the weekend (fingers crossed).
    It's 2014. Do you know where your old horse is?

    It appears that we're just across 27 from one another according to your website I'm just off of 322, closer to 41 than to 160th, nestled in the woods. If you drove by, you'd have absolutely no idea my place was back there...save the slew of construction trucks that come in and out all day, every day! I can't wait for this place to be *DONE*!

    One county road north...I wish I were off of 326! I like going the back way to the horse show much better than taking 27 even though 27 is way closer for me.
