Tallahassee, Florida - January 27, 2012 -

Organizers are gearing up for the Red Hills Horse Trials again. Many of this year's riders will be hoping to gain a spot on the U.S. Olympic team this summer. Red Hills is the first step toward winning that ticket to ride in the Olympics.

Red Hills Organizers are looking to an important year with the Olympics in London coming up. The focus of those summer games will be Equestrian events since England is known for its riders and amazing horses. Red Hills' theme this year is "A Ticket To Ride".

Red Hills International Horse trials will offer prospective Olympians their initial "ticket to ride" in the London Games this summer. The prestigious Tallahassee event, scheduled for March 9 - 11 at Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park, is the first hurdle for the competitors as they make their way toward the 2012 Olympic selection trials. Again, top riders and horses from at least 28 states and ten other countries are expected to compete in the fourteenth Red Hills international event.

In keeping with their mission to raise funds to benefit non profit organizations with compatible educational and environmental purposes, Red Hills Horse Trials contributes to our two beneficiaries; Tall Timbers Research Station and the Elinor Klapp - Phipps Park.
