Welcome to our first show at the Grand Oaks Resort. We are excited to be here and so glad you're here with us to celebrate what we plan to make an ongoing tradition!
As you arrive, first you will see the beautiful grounds, then you'll be greeted by one of the Grand Oaks staff for assistance to your stall. One of the ways Grand Oaks distinguishes themselves is through their excellent customer service. Their staff will be available throughout the show to assist you.
I encourage you to explore this facility. Check out the wonderful accommodations for you and your horse. If possible, give yourself and your horse a break and just wander through the beautiful shaded trails on the property. Try to take time to enjoy the property over the weekend; both of you deserve it!
Grand Oaks has already exhibited their commitment to the horse community by planning to add 200 permanent stalls and even an onsite hotel. I don’t know of any other facility willing to make this commitment. And please give us feedback; Grand Oaks is willing to listen. We especially appreciate helpful comments on the footing. We all want to make it the best possible for your rides.
One long standing Orlando Dressage tradition will be observed this week-end... our Saturday competitor’s party...and you’re invited! This competitor’s party is being sponsored by Connie Duff-Wise Insurance, located in The Villages. Festivities will begin immediately following competition on Saturday in the beautiful Bridge Room. Please join us for good food, great conversation and cool, refreshing beverages.
Thank you for your support of this show. Close to the closing date, we realized we needed to add additional rings and judges. With that said, we welcome our judges for this weekend: Carter Bass, ’S’, Anne Gribbons, ’S’, Johanna Gwinn, ‘S’ and Beth Barritt, ‘R’.
The braider for this weekend is Melissa Pinson. She can be reached at 352-433-7775.
We also want to thank Horse Shows in the Park for sponsoring the FEI classes this weekend!
Looking forward to a great show!
Gayle and the Wonderful Orlando Dressage Staff
