HITS Saugerties Revisits the Past with Lowered Prices

Saugerties, NY - March 12, 2009 - The HITS Saugerties Spring and Summer Horse Show series are going back to the past for ideas on how to save exhibitors money. The eight weeks of shows at the beautiful HITS-on-the-Hudson facility offers a full schedule for hunter, jumper, and equitation divisions, and HITS wants to be able to offer a competitive experience at the best price available. The HITS shows in Saugerties run from May 20-June 7, July 15-August 2, and August 26-September 13.

What every exhibitor knows is that even when small changes are made, lots of them can add up to big savings.

HITS, Inc. President Tom Struzzieri stated, "We're trying to react to what exhibitors have been most concerned about. HITS is making a concerted effort to listen to our customers and to make changes that will be the most beneficial for them."

The weekly rates for Tent and Silver Permanent stalls were not raised this year, and the Gold Permanent weekly stall has been discounted to $300 per week. Additionally, discounts are being offered for those who stay at multiple weeks of shows.

A Semi-Circuit stall, which is for those who stay for two weeks at either the Spring or Summer series, will save 20% or more off of last year's weekly prices: a Semi-Circuit stall in the Tent will cost $270 for the two weeks, a Silver Permanent stall will cost $400, and a Gold Permanent stall will cost $500. If exhibitors stay for all three weeks of either series, they could save up to 50% off last year's weekly prices: three-week circuit stalls will cost $270 in the Tent, $500 in Silver Permanent, and $600 in Gold Permanent.

HITS, Inc. is also extending a very special offer to competitors at the USEF Junior Hunter Championships on July 27-29. Those competitors who stay and show at Weeks V and VI (the weeks before and after the finals) will receive their stall for free during the finals, which is a $200 value per stall.

The HITS-on-the-Hudson facility features 1,100 permanent stalls for exhibitors. Tent stalls are also available and will feature the much-praised wooden panel stalls that were introduced in Saugerties last year.

Some class fees will be lowered for 2009, and the jumper nominating fee, which only applies to the Level 5 Jumpers or higher, has been lowered to $100. There will be no separate nominating fee for the grand prix classes.

Giving trainers and riders some flexibility in choice, a horse showing in otherwise non-nominated classes may move up to show in one (1) Level 5 Jumper Class without having to pay the nominating fee.

Also new this year is the elimination of the ship-in and grounds fees. This started at the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit and will apply at all HITS shows for the remainder of the year.

HITS Saugerties Spring and Summer Show series is ready to provide the best horse show experience for your money, and HITS realizes that you need to stretch your dollar further. More improvements to the HITS-on-the-Hudson facility will be announced soon. Please visit http://www.HitsShows.com for more information.
