Saddle up and head to the horse show of the year, HITS Thermal, from January – March 2013, and watch as riders and their horses jump, leap and gallop their way across the course with amazing grace and skill.
HITS – which stands for Horse Shows In the Sun – specializes in hunter/jumper horse shows that judge both horse and rider from the time they enter the ring to the minute they leave on a variety of factors – like grace, style, presentation and appearance. In 2009 alone, 3,000 horses, 10,500 riders and 25,000 spectators were in attendance at HITS Thermal, and more than $1.5 million in prizes was awarded to the winners.
This thrilling and unique event is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages, so bring the kids with to see one of the largest and most exciting equestrian events in the country.
Admission to HITS Thermal is free Tuesday through Saturday and only $5 per person for Sunday entry. Children under 12 are free of charge.
The event will be held every Tuesday through Sunday during the six-week run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal, California, which is just minutes from Palm Desert. For more information and a complete schedule of events, visit the HITS Thermal website today.
