Welcome to another year of firsts!
The Sponsor Tent and the show jumping arena now sit on high ground in the north field. The show jumping and dressage arenas have wonderful, new footing. The cross-country course, which shifted somewhat to accommodate the relocations of the Sponsor Tent and the arenas, now sports wider galloping lanes and improved footing, plus spectator paths for the stalwart. And the stable tents all have new, raised pads.
Many thanks to our partners — the Leon County Board of County Commissioners, Visit Tallahassee, the City of Tallahassee and the Northwest Florida Water Management District — who worked tirelessly with us on these improvements, and to Roberts and Roberts Contracting and Junction City Mining, who made the grading and new footing possible. Dixie Paving and Grading made the much-needed improvements to the barns become a reality.
Sponsors and spectators will be right in the middle of all of the competition with the best seats in the park, surrounded by the show jumping and dressage arenas on one side and the cross country course on the other.
CROSS COUNTRY CHALLENGE: We’re sad, but we have to cancel the run for 2015. With all of the changes in the Park, we need a year to see how the venues work. Be sure to mark your calendars for 2016!
If you can’t make it to Tallahassee, you can still watch the event! This year, for the first time, Red Hills will be streaming coverage of the event online Sunday, March 8. A direct link to the coverage will be available here on the homepage Sunday morning.
