HITS names Central Equine title sponsor of the Junior Medal

SAUGERTIES, NY (May 4, 2009)—HITS is pleased to announce that Central Equine will be designated the title sponsor of the Junior Medal at HITS Saugerties and HITS Culpeper in 2009. In addition, the Central Equine Junior Medal will be offered at all Marshall & Sterling League member events that host the Junior Medal competition and at the Marshall & Sterling League Finals.

The Junior Medal was introduced during the 2003 Marshall & Sterling League Finals in Worcester, Massachusetts. The Finals were held indoors in 2003 and 2004 and the event was very popular because it gave Junior riders another alternative to show at 3'6''. For the past four seasons, the Finals have been held at HITS' state-of-the-art equestrian facility in Saugerties, New York making the Junior Medal Finals unique, as it is the only Junior Medal Finals held outdoors.

"Since its inception, the Junior Medal has always been a popular event," said HITS Account Executive for Corporate Sponsorship Lisa Engel. "The Marshall & Sterling League continues to grow each year and we are excited to have Central Equine reap the benefits of the League's growth and its sponsorship of HITS."

Central Equine is an equine communications company committed to growth by exceeding the expectations of its customers, associates and partners. Their goal is to connect the show horse world's riders, trainers, horses, retailers, horse shows and events together more quickly and more efficiently through the web.

"We strive to create an environment where all customers and associates are valued and respected, and where doing it the 'right way' takes precedence over doing it the easy way," said Central Equine's President Scott Schaedle. "We aspire to be the industry leader in proactively setting standards of excellence in online communities and the marketing of show horses."

"We are really proud to be the sponsor of the Central Equine Junior Medal and to continue our relationship with HITS and the Marshall & Sterling League," added Schaedle.
