We're gearing up for the CMSA Florida State Championships next Nov 3-4. Some of the best mounted shooters in the southeast will be competing during this 2-day event, which will be held at the Ocala Equestrian Center. Florida CMSA is my home club, and I sure enjoy participating in one of my favorite equestrian sports in my new hometown with some very talented cowboys and cowgirls. I'll be in the announcing booth at the CMSA World Championships in Las Vegas next month - check out www.cowboymountedshooting.com for more info. In December, we've been asked to Roman Ride the famous Ocala Christmas Parade (www.ocalachristmasparade.org)! An Ocala tradition for 58 recorded years, the annual Ocala/Marion County Christmas Parade is one of Florida’s last remaining evening parades. The Parade attracts over 60,000 spectators from Marion and surrounding counties who line up along more than two miles of Silver Springs Boulevard. Later in December, we'll be entertaining some corporate groups at the Smokehouse Creek Rodeo Arena (smokehousecreekrodeo.com) with our specialty acts and equine entertainment clinics. Busy, busy, busy...!
