HITS~ Horseshow In The Sun

HITS is a BIG Horse Event that takes place every year here in Ocala, and is held at the Post Time Farm located at 13710 US Highway 27. People travel from all over the United States to attend and participate in the competitions.

I was thrilled to be able to attend this year. I always wanted to go to HITS, but the opportunity never presented itself until this year. I was determined not to let another year go by and not see what it was all about.

One person I met while eating at a local restaurant told me that she lives in Boston and flies here every weekend to compete. She boards her horse locally, and her parents drive up from Ft. Lauderdale each weekend in support of their daughter (5 hour drive). It is a BIG THING and those involved take it very seriously. Many of the school age children enroll in the school on the HITS grounds. However, some take online classes to enable them to focus more time on training.

The competition ran for nine weeks- from January 19 to March 18. They are all packed up and are on their way to the next show.

After they leave Ocala HITS, they will continue to travel to shows along the East Coast, including those in Pennsylvania, Raleigh, Virginia and New York, just to name a few.

Riders in Ocala will compete in qualifying classes throughout the circuit for a chance to compete for over $1 million in Saugerties, New York, this September. The weekend of September 7-9, 2012 will host the richest weekend in show jumping with a $1 million Grand Prix, a $500,000 3’3” Hunter Prix and, new this year, a $250,000 3’ Hunter Prix.

If you haven’t been to one of these events, don’t worry they will be back next year. There is no cost to watch the event, except for Sundays ($5.00 fee).
