The first week of the Jacksonville Winter Series has drawn to a close and reminded trainers and exhibitors why they migrate south for the winter.  The Southern Hospitality and Florida Sunshine! 

Week 1 was kicked off with a smokin' Exhibitor Party hosted by Ridgewater Show Stables and Chad and Brooke Watridge.  Chad's slow cooked pulled pork and home made barbecue sauce were surely highlights of the week, which included a WCHR Member Event, $2,500 National Hunter Derby sponsored by Jerry Parks Insurance Group, Hunter Division Classics and Jumper Classics. 

Adequan generously sponsored a lunch Pizza Party under the Pavilion so exhibitors, trainers and spectators could grab a quick bite to eat while they were up at the ring preparing to show.
