The Florida Thoroughbred Transformation Exposition will take place March 24-26, 2017, at the Florida Horse Park in Ocala. With contestants competing in barrel racing, cross-country, dressage, freestyle, polo, showjumping, show hunter and working ranch/racetrack pony horse, awards will also be awarded to the top Junior and Amateur contestants in each of the eight disciplines.
A minimum of $36,000 in prize money will be awarded to the contestants, who must be mounted on horses that are within two years of their racing or race-training retirement. Also included at the event is a vendor fair and educational seminars.
The Florida Thoroughbred Transformation Expo is hosted by Run for the Ribbons Inc., a 501c3 charity that is dedicated to providing off-the-track Thoroughbreds a smooth transition into a new career and home. The goal of the Expo is to increase the demand for Thoroughbreds and to encourage riders to take on a project horse of their own. They also seek to educate the public about the versatility of the Thoroughbred breed.
It is anticipated that the Expo will have over 100 competitors.
