“We are looking to reach beyond the normal scope of our horse shows and invite and encourage a new group of riders to participate. It has always been our philosophy to offer unique and diverse classes and championships for riders of all levels. These riders are the future of our sport – what better way to find them than to offer a World-Class event that caters just to them.” – Tom Struzzieri, President and CEO, HITS, Inc.
