HITS and Tom Struzzieri look forward to welcoming you for the 26th edition of the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit, January 16 – March 18, 2018 at the HITS Desert Horse Park. Join us for eight weeks of USEF Premier-rated shows and over $4 Million in Prize Money featuring the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping CSI3*-W and the sixth annual AIG $1 Million Grand Prix.
HITS Coachella has been staple of the winter show jumping calendar for more than two decades. The 400+ classes each week offer something for every competitive rider from Short Stirrup to Grand Prix. The location, the famed Coachella Valley, puts you in the heart of one of the most famous and beautiful resort areas in the world.
We look forward to seeing you at the Coachella Desert Circuit and welcome any comments or suggestions for an improved showing experience.
