Update on Commonwealth National at HITS Culpeper in April
The Health and Safety of our Exhibitors and Horses Come First

Out of an abundance of caution and in the best interest of HITS exhibitors, their horses and HITS employees, HITS President and CEO, Tom Struzzieri, made the decision this morning to cancel the Commonwealth National Horse Show, April 15-19, at HITS Commonwealth Park in Culpeper, Virginia.
"Health and Safety come first," said Struzzieri. “This was a tough decision. The Culpeper April show is one of our favorite shows all year, but the well-being of our exhibitors and staff is the top priority for us right now. We wanted to get the word out early so exhibitors, staff and their families can make plans appropriately.” 
The HITS Culpeper Summer Series at Commonwealth Park will now kick-off with the two-week July Series, July 1-12, that will feature two USHJA National Hunter Derbies as well as USHJA Green Hunter Incentive qualifying classes. The August series runs two weeks, August 12-23, and the Culpeper Finals horse show closes the season September 23-27.
“We will be back for the summer and fall with bells on,” Struzzieri continued. “In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.”
The HITS Culpeper Prize list is available at HITSShows.com. If you have any questions regarding the April show, or would like assistance as you make plans for the Summer and Fall shows, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 845-246-8833 or info@hitsshows.com.

We will continue to closely monitor the health situation and stay in daily contact with appropriate officials and health experts for HITS Culpeper and all HITS Summer Horse Shows. We will post updates as needed on our website or HITS Facebook.
Look forward to these special events each week at HITS Culpeper later this summer!
