Winter Eventing Series Kicks Off

Ocala Horse Properties Fall Eventing Results

Some of the world’s best event riders and spectators gathered Nov. 15 for the first event in the Ocala Horse Properties Winter Series at the Florida Horse Park.

Ocala Horse Properties Fall Event headliners in the preliminary category were Unborn de Lelo, Sayyida, Tsetserieg and FE Money Made.

Leslie Law took Unborn de Lelo to the top placing first. Law, who won the individual gold medal in the 2004 Olympic Games at Athens, has been a regular on championship podiums since the 1990s. Law was on the Britain team in 2001 and 2003 when they won the European Championship and took home silver medals at both the 2000 Olympic Games and the 2002 World Equestrian Games.

Law’s longtime friend, Kyle Carter, rode Sayyida to place second in the event. In addition to being an accomplished rider, placing in 2010 13th at the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event CCI**** and earning a silver as a Canadian team member at the World Equestrian Games CCI****, Carter is also a certified coach. He is a Level IV ICP coach in the US, a Level III Certified Coach in Canada, and he sits on the Coaching Faculty for Canada.

“It’s so great to see how eventing is growing in Ocala,” said Chris Desino of Ocala Horse Properties, the title sponsor for the Winter Series. “Ocala is truly becoming the hub for three-day evening in North America.”

The Winter Series is designed by Equiventures, the official organizer for all of the United States Equestrian Association eventing competitions at the Florida Horse Park. Learn more about the celebrity equestrians and horses of Ocala’s kickoff event here.
