GFS SCHOOL NEWS

Our riders are competing at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida! Each year, our student-athletes have the chance to compete at the World Equestrian Center for a few weeks in the winter while completing their schoolwork virtually, with the help of our staff members who travel down to Florida to support them as they compete and study. The classes at the World Equestrian Center are large classes with competitive entries, and our student-athletes are ready to roll!
