Florida International CCI**/CCI*
Gallop on over for an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy the high-jumping, hoof-pounding thrills of international horse competition at Florida Horse Park. The weekend will feature some of the world’s finest competitors in dressage, cross-country and show jumping competitions.
A variety of other events also await festival goers, thanks to a special joint fundraising partnership with Kids Central, Inc., the nonprofit child-welfare services provider for Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties.
Guests will have the chance to enjoy a kids' "Field of Dreams" with fun children's activities, tailgating at thrilling polo matches and an elegant "Day at the Park" luncheon featuring a silent auction. And the Ocala Runners' Club will organize the first annual PeopleChase: Clear the Jumps, Avoid the Bumps, a 3-mile obstacle race to take place at the Park on Friday evening. The entire weekend is full of family friendly activities, food and shopping that you won't want to miss.
The funds raised through this joint effort will help build housing units for young adults transitioning out of foster care, as well as the ongoing development of Florida Horse Park.
General Admission: $5 per vehicle each day.
"Day at the Park" Luncheon: $150 per ticket or $1,500 for a Champagne table for eight. The luncheon will feature polo matches, hat contests and a silent auction in "a day of whimsy."
Polo Match Tailgating: $250 per field-side parking space. Bring, food, drinks and friends, and savor the polo action!
