HITS announces EquiFit, Inc. as a sponsor of the 2009 HITS Saugerties and HITS Culpeper Series

SAUGERTIES, NY (May 4, 2009)—HITS is pleased to announce that EquiFit,Inc. again will join HITS' impressive list of sponsors for the 2009 HITS Saugerties and HITS Culpeper series of horse shows. HITS-on-the-Hudson is set to begin on Wednesday, May 20 at HITS' equestrian facility in Saugerties, New York.

EquiFit, which has been a sponsor of HITS nationwide for several years, will be showcasing its products, including the new Tretorn Riding Boot near the in-gate of the Grand Prix Ring at HITS Saugerties all season. EquiFit products, including its line of T boots and SilverAg will be available on-site at The Tack Shelter, Bevel and Kocher Tack. For a complete guide to all of the Equifit products, click here.

As a rider, EquiFit, Inc. President Alexandra Cherubini searched long and hard for state-of-the-art equipment and gear. Unable to find what she envisioned on the market, she set out with a team of orthopedists to research and develop performance- enhancing equestrian solutions. She found inspiration from the medical industry and soon founded EquiFit, Inc. to create her own technologically advanced product lines.

Cherubini, who trains at Stepping Stone Farm, is still a competitive exhibitor and has had a busy calendar already in 2009, showing across the country in Florida all the way to Thermal, California where she spent two weeks at the HITS Desert Circuit. This spring and summer, Cherubini will be a frequent visitor to HITS Saugerties competing in the Jumper Rings.

This year's HITS Saugerties Spring and Summer Series will offer even more for hunter and jumper competitors including increased prize money and special Classics.

For High Performance riders, more than $1 million in prize money will be handed out over the course of the spring and summer series in the Open Jumper division. There are four Open Jumper classes each week, including two grand prix classes. Junior and Amateur jumpers will see their divisions and Classics split each week with $5,000 awarded in the Low Classic and $10,000 in the High Classic weekly. The Children's and Adult jumpers will have a $10,000 Classic on weeks I and IV, as well as their regular Classics the other weeks.

There's something special for the hunters too, as the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby and the $5,000 Pony Commotion take place week VI. $50,000 in prize money will be awarded at the 2009 USEF Junior Hunter East Coast Championships on July 27, and equitation riders will have a chance to compete in the prestigious Hunterdon Cup on July 28. Children's and Adult hunters each will have an opportunity to sh ow in a special Classic as one of the feature classes of the evening schedule. Check the schedule for other special Classics featured each week on Friday and Saturday evenings.

HITS, Inc. is a special events management company primarily focused on producing hunter/jumper horse shows. Based in upstate New York in the village of Saugerties, HITS produced its first horse show circuit in Gainesville, Florida in 1982. Since that time, HITS has grown into a nationwide company with world-class hunter/jumper circuits in California, Florida, Arizona, New York and Virginia.
