Culpeper, VA (March 19, 2012) – HITS, Inc. is pleased to announce that in an effort to streamline the entry process for exhibitors it has joined forces with Equestrian Connect to provide electronic entry submissions for the upcoming HITS Culpeper Show Series. Equestrian Connect is the leading online service for completing horse show entry forms electronically.
Until now, exhibitors have been required to print, sign and mail the forms with payment; however, electronic submissions are now possible with Equestrian Connect, offering a major convenience upgrade to trainers, owners and riders.
HITS President and CEO, Tom Struzzieri is looking forward to how this new process will help the HITS team process and streamline the flow of entries. "We are committed to offering the best services to our exhibitors. We are getting hundreds of entries per show through Equestrian Connect. The natural next step was to provide our customers with the added convenience of submitting entries electronically."
In the last two years, Equestrian Connect has attracted more than 6,500 members who regularly post entry forms for more than 800 USEF A/AA hunter/jumper shows throughout the country.
Accepting entries online is made possible by a new service provided by Equestrian Connect to horse show managers. Show managers can now log on to the Equestrian Connect service to review and receive entry information.
High-Performance rider and trainer Ramiro Quintana appreciates the ease and convenience of Equestrian Connect. “I love the concept! Just being able to print out the entries with a click of a button is the best idea ever. Being able to submit them electronically now will be great. This service helps my barn run smoothly.”
Equestrian Connect is available for a 45 day FREE trial. The trial doesn't begin until the first entries are created. Once the trial is over, exhibitors have two pricing options: $49.99 for an annual subscription per horse, or $8.00 per entry form.
