Guinn, who often attends other events at the World Equestrian Center (WEC Ocala), noted that this was the first show for the American Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackney Pony, Roadsters, and Combined Driving at the new state of the art facility.

ASHBA and the UPHA Chapter 16 are pleased to work together to present this horse show. The show is designed to be have opportunities for all show horse breeds with specific classes for Saddlebreds, Hackney Ponies, Roadsters, Dutch Harness Horses, and Carriage Driving. This will make the show the first to include all of these various breeds under one roof at WEC Ocala.

WEC Ocala opened its facilities in December of 2020.  The entire equestrian paradise is comprised of over 4,000 acres with 300 acres dedicated to the equestrian facility. The hotel, The Equestrian, is elegantly designed and has 254 suites. While guest capacity for hotel rooms is remaining limited through 2021, but look forward to what having an on-sight luxury hotel will offer exhibitors in the future! Beyond the basics, WEC Ocala also features restaurants, ample turn-out space, a chapel, a candy store, a full hook-up RV park complete with a general store and a laundromat, and so much more. WEC Ocala has repeatedly been described as a, ‘Disney World for horse lovers,’ and an ‘equine paradise’!

This show wouldn’t be possible without the support of our founding members and sponsors. More information about the horse show can be found on the Ocala International Horse Show website at www.ocalainternationalhorseshow.com or via the event livestream at http://www.richfieldvideo.com/
