Six-week Summer Series at HITS-on-the-Hudson to award nearly $2 Million in Prize Money

HITS Saugerties and the Vermont Summer Festival received final permission today from USEF to announce the Great American Summer Series, presented by Alliant Private Client, at HITS-on-the-Hudson, Saugerties, New York, July 1 – August 9, 2020. Entry blanks and class listings are available now! We encourage you to send entries early, by mail or online, as we expect the shows will fill up quickly.

This six-week series will offer nearly $2 Million in prize money with featured classes for hunters and jumpers each week, including three $100,000 Grand Prix, three $200,000 Grand Prix, three $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derbies and two World Championship Hunter Rider weeks. More highlights are listed below and the complete class listing is available on our website!

"When John [Ammerman] told me the Vermont Summer Festival was in jeopardy of not running this year due to current conditions, it only made sense to combine our efforts to produce the Great American Summer Series, present by Alliant Private Client,” said HITS President and CEO, Tom Struzzieri. “I cannot express how excited HITS is to collaborate with VSF on this project. We think this summer in Saugerties will knock your socks off."
