Spring Fling! HDT & CT
Welcome to the Florida Spring Fling HDT and Combined Test!


April 12-13, 2015

at the Grand Oaks Equestrian Resort in Weirsdale, FL


An HDT 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 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.  The event is sponsored and organized by Cypress Keep, and we appreciate your support!


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