James Lala’s Ridiculously Affordable Citrus Series is Back!

Wellington, FL – March 9, 2013 – Citrus Series Horse Show Wellington will offer two Tuesday shows in March. The first comes right up on March 11 and the second on March 18. The ring will open for flat at 10 a.m. with classes kicking off at 11 a.m. New for the Tuesday show, Citrus Series will also hold the 3’ Phelps Media Group Southeast Medal Junior qualifying class.

Citrus Series is an ideal and affordable way for horses and riders to gain valuable competition mileage. Something unheard of at rated shows, show manger James Lala has the hunter, jumper and equitation courses at the same height in one ring, making it ultra-convenient and time saving. There is a set time schedule so exhibitors know when they show.

Citrus Series shows are held at Jim Brandon Equestrian Center at Okeeheelee Park, a wonderful facility offering great footing, permanent stalls, plenty of parking and permanent restrooms. Citrus Series offers beautiful courses and decoration- perfect prep for AA shows like WEF. Plus, the show series is extremely user-friendly. They offer warm-ups and do-over options to make certain horses and riders leave with a positive experience under their belt.

“We have produced a really great way to get horses and riders ready for the bigger AA circuits,” said James Lala. “We hope to see you there!”

Here is what people are saying about the Citrus Series:

“This is his second outing in Florida,” said Corina Peterson of her horse, ridden by trainer Kalie Butcher. “I love the show grounds, it is good for him to get out and get experience. We’ll be back.”

“I think what James is doing is a very good thing, because it gives the kids a place to show at a quality facility where they have a chance to improve and move forward,” said Steve Lengyel of Wall Street Farm

“It is super organized, said Courtney Yecker. “The jumps are fantastic. The ring and the upkeep of the schooling area was really nice and the courses were amazing.” 

“This is a great opportunity especially for people who have horses for sale and kids who want to go in the ring without so much pressure.” ~ Ivan Rakowsky, Team Rakowsky

“This is the way a horse show should be.”  ~ Kama Godek
