Grand Oaks HDT 
Welcome to the Central Florida HDT & CT at the Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, FL


December 8-9, 2012


An HDT (Horse Driving Trial) is a carriage driving event with three phases of competition that include dressage, cones, and a marathon with hazards/obstacles. The event is a shortened form of a CDE (combined driving event) and great for any age, any level, and any equine.  For those not wishing to compete in the marathon, a Combined Test (CT) is offered (dressage and cones only). This competition is recognized by the American Driving Society (ADS).   You can access the official ADS Omnibus Listing for this show. 


We would love to host you as a competitor, sponsor, volunteer, or vendor!


SPONSORSHIPS AVAILABLE!  Sponsor a competition section (dressage, cones, or marathon) for $200, sponsor a competitive division (Training or Preliminary VSE, small pony, pony, horse, or pairs) for $50, or sponsor a hazard for $100.
