Tallahassee, FL-- Hold your horses! Spectators can not believe these trials are over!

"It really is sad that it just so much fun that before you know it, it's gone," said Abel Correa, a Spectator at the event.

The Horse Trials helped give the local Tallahassee economy a boost.

"You know they're flying into our airports," said Brooke Lochore, a Access Tallahassee Council Member. "They are staying in our hotels and that boost to our economy is really strong."

According to Lochore, each year the numbers keep on growing.
Their are new champions added to the long-list of previous winners.

"It was a great feeling," said Caitlin Henderson, one of the fifth place winner's of the Jump. "I was so proud of him."

Although these trials are winding down, for the riders it just means off to the next event.

"We keep training," said Henderson. "They are only off about a month out of the whole year."

The hounds stampeded across the course to mark the end of the celebration.

Red Hills Organizers say, their will be changes to the trials from a new course lay out, down to a new location.

But spectators say, the anticipation for next year's event will remain the same.
