Another day trip and photo shoot with our dear friends Lowell and Lois Anderson took us to a great yearly event right here in the Ocala area. Called Horses in the Sun (HITS), the event began in January and ends later this month. Whether you are into horses or not, you can’t go wrong spending a couple of hours enjoying the beauty of equestrian competition.
Located at HITS Post Time Farm on Hwy 27 and lasting until March 20, is the fantastic world of horse show jumping. It’s difficult to comprehend how large an area it actually is. Numerous arenas arranged with an array of jump obstacles, each filled with horses and riders both young and old, dressed to the hilt in traditional riding attire. The photos taken today don’t give justice to the beauty and dedication you see throughout the event. A must see…for sure!
On the way back to Stone Creek, Lowell was aware of a farm that if you were lucky to drive by at the right time, had some more beautiful animals not common to the area. Zebra! Our final stop was at the Horse & Hounds Pub for a great lunch.
