Join the fun at the Live Oak International Combined Driving event that is taking place at Live Oak Farm off of Hwy 40 in Ocala.
The event is being held from March 7-10, 2019.
Entering its 28th year, Live Oak International is the largest international-level combined driving and show jumping tournament in the country, and each year welcomes some of the leading drivers, riders, trainers, coaches and owners from Europe and North America.
In its inception, Live Oak International was a small affair, and hosted only combined driving competition. At that time, world champion four-in-hand driver Chester Weber, wasn’t able to compete at the event, held on his family’s farm, because he wasn’t yet 18. Chester is now Co-President of Live Oak International alongside his sister, Juliet W. Reid.
The competition’s reach and participation grew throughout the years, and now regularly hosts U.S. Equestrian Federation combined driving national championships.
An important step in the evolution of the event happened in 2012, when international show jumping competition was added to the program. It was an instant success! Now the grand prix which takes place Sunday afternoon during Live Oak International, is a qualifier for the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League.
Live Oak International was already recognized as a fun, well-managed competition for the Driving community with a strong focus on hospitality for its competitors. With the addition of Show Jumping, a ringside hospitality area was introduced and sold out. Owners, competitors, and sponsors enjoyed two beautiful afternoons of ringside hospitality. Every rider that entered the ring saluted event sponsors.
