Fox Lea Farm has been known to have a stellar summer series year after year, and they have revamped their show schedule in 2016 by adding six weeks of horse shows starting Jan. 27-31 through March 2-6.
The facilities in Venice, Fla., have gotten upgrades. They’ve expanded the size of two show rings, added new outdoor furniture, updated drainage systems, and spruced up of the barns. The show series hopes to attract new customers with events like “Show Jumping Under the Stars,” a $25,000 grand prix held under the lights each Friday night. There will also be a welcome stakes on Thursdays, hunter derbies and future classes held on Saturday.
“We have had an amazing response to our new circuit! While we plan to grow the size and scope of the Venice Equestrian Tour over the coming years, we anticipate a strong turnout for our inaugural year,” said Laurie Birnbach, national account director.
