Dressage shows at World Equestrian Center – Ocala have drawn rave reviews from riders, such as:

“It’s an incredible facility and a huge addition to equestrian sport in America. It’s top-notch, from the indoor arenas to the outdoor rings, to the stalls that are huge with fans and the beautiful StableComfort Flooring. They’ve really done every detail. It’s just exceptional.”Four-time Olympian Ashley Holzer (USA)

“I have competed in top-level dressage all over the world, in some of the best venues in the world. As far as infrastructure goes, this is the best venue in the world that I have ever competed at. It’s this feeling of space; you feel like you can get on your horse and just fly. The lighting, the climate control, the footing; it’s just fantastic.”Catherine Haddad Staller (USA)

It’s great exposure for our horses to be able to compete in an indoor environment. We don’t have that a lot in North America. I can’t wait to come back and compete again.”Olympian Lindsay Kellock (CAN)

“It’s the best facility I’ve seen in my life and anybody I’ve spoken to says the same thing.”Kevin Kohmann (USA)

“The footing rides really well. It’s soft, but springy, so it gives you what you really want to feel right before you go in the test. We love showing here; it’s been really super.”Devon Kane (USA)
