On-site Schools at HITS Thermal and HITS Ocala offer discounted circuit rates for 2009

SAUGERTIES, NY (December 29, 2008)As the start of the winter circuits draws near, HITS is reminding parents and school-aged riders that on-site educational centers are available at all three of its winter circuits, including HITS Thermal, HITS Ocala, and for the first time ever, HITS Tucson.

And, as a special offer in 2009, the School Station in Thermal and the Education Station in Ocala are offering special discounted rates for students attending the entire circuit.

At the School Station in Thermal, a student enrolling for the entire eight-week circuit will only pay for six weeks, so the last two weeks will be free of charge! Of course, students may enroll for individual weeks as well. In addition, qualified students may be eligible for the School Stations special Senior/Twelfth Grader plan with flexible schedules and special pricing. For more information on the HITS Thermal School Station, visit the HITS website for a complete informational brochure and enrollment forms. You may also contact Mary Cunning, school director, at mycunning@msn.com or 802.318.6924.

The Education Station in Ocala offers a Circuit Pricing plan as well, and has recently discounted that rate even further for 2009. Students enrolling for the entire six weeks of the rated circuit (February 2 March 12) will now pay the same price as 2008. This means students will be getting the sixth week for free! In addition, students enrolled for the entire circuit will be able to add additional weeks (during the unrated part of the circuit) for a discounted price as well. Visit the HITS website for a complete informational packet and enrollment forms. For more information please contact Patricia Struzzieri at edstation1@verizon.net or 845.628.8722.

Remember, registrations are still being accepted for ALL of the HITS on-site schools. Visit:

Each of the on-site schools offers a complete academic facility designed especially for equestrian families. The highest priority is given to continuing each student's regular school studies. The education centers at the HITS winter circuits encourage and assist students in collaborating with the faculty and their home school. Research indicates that students who continue their schooling at the circuit will return to their home school well prepared. It is a unique educational opportunity, with classrooms located on the right on the show grounds with certified teachers and individualized study programs for students in kindergarten through college.

Im very much looking forward to the new season, said Cunning. "Im also excited about this years programs in Thermal and Arizona. Each year the program continues to grow and its great to see how the students can thrive in both their riding and education. Thats not only rewarding for the students, but also for faculty and me. The School Station's 'Wall of Fame' clearly demonstrates the abilities of the equestrian riders both in the Horse Show classes and their academic achievements."

This educational program is so special, said Struzzieri. Its great to be able to offer student riders the opportunity to continue with their studies while they compete, its truly the best of both worlds. Im glad so many families take advantage of the opportunity and I look forward to this season!
