HITS to add Lamplight Equestrian Center to its Portfolio in 2020
Season start date dependent on Coronavirus Concerns
It’s official! HITS Chicago is moving to Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, Illinois beginning in 2020. “We are confident in the horse business going forward,” said Tom Struzzieri, President and CEO of HITS, Inc. “Lamplight has always been a favorite of horsemen, and we are anxious to get started.” 
The show season at Lamplight will include 13 hunter/jumper shows May through September, plus five Dressage shows. While this year’s start will be delayed due to current conditions, HITS Chicago at Lamplight will be ready to open its doors the moment USEF and Local and State Authorities allow.
“Although the world is suffering, there is light at the end of the tunnel,” continued Struzzieri. “Horse sport will be back, and HITS will be ready. As it always has been, our goal is to offer exhibitors the best product and the best experience possible. We know we will deliver that at Lamplight.”

We have already reached out to many of our Midwest customers, and the response has been terrific. If you have not heard from us yet, please contact us! We are here to help with every aspect of your planning, from stabling and entries to lodging and dining, and more. The Prize List will be posted soon, and we invite you visit and HITS Facebook for more updates.
