We arrived in Ocala last night and had a nice dinner at the Gilliland’s with the other officials who have already arrived. Richard is scoring, and I will be helping where needed, blogging and taking photographs. I have a new camera so I’m eager to see what it can do! Today packets will be passed out starting at 11. Even though it is only Wednesday, a lot of competitors have already arrived. Some even on Monday. There will be a lot of clinics, lessons, and meetings for those Advanced drivers who are hoping to go to World Championships. I think there are 12 four-in-hands here. The horse inspection will take place at 3 this afternoon. It is always interesting to get a first look at the advanced horses.
The weather forecast looks quite pleasant for the rest of the week – high 70s and partly cloudy. No rain. I guess they had quite a bit of rain last week, but hopefully it will dry up, but not too much – we don’t want dust either.
