Postcard from HITS Chicago Equifest, Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

Equifest at Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, Illinois is one of the horse shows that nearly every Midwesterner (including myself) looks forward to each year.  It’s always three weeks in July/August and offers hunter/jumper/equitation classes from leadline up to Grand Prix.  This summer, Equifest ran for the first time under Lamplight’s new owner/management, HITS — and the competition didn’t disappoint!  Scroll on for horse and rider pairs going out there to own their #goals against the facility’s beautiful backdrop.

Doing it right…mask up!

Classic knees-to-nose <3

I’ve personally seen this horse go from ground poles to 1.10m.  He’s come incredibly far!

Always pat your pony!

Great jump from the pony, and great eq on the rider’s part.

They might be a little tired…
