Ocala, Fla. – Mar. 5, 2020 – For the third consecutive year, Will Coleman (USA) galloped to the top of the podium in the Ocala Horse Properties (OHP) Eventing Prix Invitational. Coleman rode TKS Cooley, the mount he won with in 2019 as well, and produced the only clear show jumping round to snag the win. For his brilliant riding, Coleman was awarded $6,600 in prize money, in addition to a $5,000 travel voucher from EquiJet. EquiJet was proud to be a returning sponsor and the Official Equine Air Transportation for the 2020 installment of the event. Great job to all competitors!
In 2019, Coleman represented the USA on the international stage at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in Great Britain and the World Equestrian Games aboard his 5* mount, Tight Lines. TKS Cooley, Coleman’s mount for this past weekend’s eventing prix, had an eighth-place finish in the 4* competition at Jersey Fresh and an ninth-place finish in the 4* at Great Meadow International.
“We are beyond excited to work with Will with his travel plans for 2020,” shared Bastian Schroeder, Founder and President of EquiJet. “We understand the level of hard work and commitment it takes to compete at the 4* and 5* level of eventing. The last thing these athletes should have to worry about when making their competition arrangements is the stress that often comes with lining out their transportation! Will is a fantastic eventer and we look forward to aiding him in his competition goals this season.”
