Desert Rain in Thermal: Back at the Barn with Kentucky Performance Products

The HITS Coachella winter circuit has this inexplicable vibe that gives it such a mysterious allure. Maybe it’s the oasis-like nature of Thermal; the way it rises up from the desert sands out of nowhere and inhabits this fantasy-like place on the California border.

The venue has even more look and feel than usual this opening week as a series of torrential downpours kept grooms, riders, and maintenance teams alike scrambling to keep things dry, but for the casual observer, it makes for some killer backdrops! Take a peek at an intermittently sunny and rainy HITS Coachella, courtesy of Kentucky Performance Products.
