HITS Shows names The Horse Review as an Official Media Partner


HITS Shows are the leading producing hunter/jumper horse shows, as well as dressage competitions, in the United States.

The Horse Review has been named an official media partner of HITS Shows. HITS LLC is the leading producing hunter/jumper horse shows, as well as dressage competitions, in the United States. 

Based in upstate New York in the village of Saugerties, HITS produced its first horse show circuit in Gainesville, Florida in 1982. Since then, HITS has grown into a nationwide company with world-class events in Florida, New York, Illinois, Vermont, Virginia and California.

“We are excited to partner with The Horse Review and are looking forward to sharing the fun of showing at HITS with the enthusiastic Mid-South readers,” said HITS Senior Vice President of Marketing Ashley Baker. “Across all of our venues, we aim to provide every exhibitor with an enjoyable experience from ponies to grand prix and everywhere in between, so it only makes sense to collaborate with a publication that emphasizes the joy of the equestrian lifestyle.”

As an official media partner, The Horse Review, will have special coverage of HITS Chicago at Lamplight, HITS Culpeper Series in Virginia, and HITS Ocala Winter Series. This will give The Horse Review exclusive access to HITS’ leading competitors, news, announcements, and special features on the series and exhibitors. HITS will also distribute The Horse Review to HITS exhibitors and will brand The Horse Review as a media partner on HITS website, press releases and at HITS events. This will position The Horse Review as a leading equine publication reaching a national audience.

Lauren Abbott, Publisher of The Horse Review said, “This partnership is exciting on many levels. For the first time since 1992, The Horse Review will be nationally recognized and distributed by the leading hunter/ jumper and dressage competitions in the US. It will give my team the opportunity to publish exclusive content about leading US competitors, and share their stories of success. Partnering with HITS was a strategy I felt would help lead The Horse Review into its new era as a leading Equine Magazine dedicated to sharing the joy of horses across the US. We are excited to write stories about nationally ranked equestrians, as well as supporting and sharing stories of riders of all levels and horse ownership.” 

HITS Chicago returns to Lamplight Equestrian Center in 2024 with 14 weeks of USEF-Rated Series running May through September. Extensive class offerings and competitive prize money cements HITS commitment to the Midwest show jumping tour at this historic venue.

HITS Culpeper Series is located at Commonwealth Park. The venue is situated on 92 acres in beautiful Central Virginia, where old-school charm meets the modern horse show experience. HITS Culpeper hosts 6 USEF-Rated hunter/jumper competitions annually, and in 2024, is proud to offer Virginia Horse Show Association affiliated shows, confirming its reputation as a home for riders and horses of all levels.

HITS Ocala Winter Series has been taking place since 1982. HITS calls Central Florida its Winter Home. In 1985, HITS moved to the ‘Horse Capital of the World’ – Ocala, and later purchased Post Time Farm in 2002, cultivating one of the world’s most horse-friendly show grounds. For four decades and counting, the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit has provided one of the largest show circuits in the country. Each year HITS Ocala hosts 12-weeks of USEF-Rated Hunter/Jumper competition from December through March.
