Wednesday Weekend Preview: HITS Sunshine Series, The Royal Horse Show, Verona, Italy and more!


Hello sunshine! It’s good to have some outdoor venues back on the docket just a few weeks into the fall season, and we’re looking forward to much more from the palm-tree laden landscapes in the months to come. It’s the second weekend of the HITS Sunshine Series, and we’ve got some big classes on the docket that you won’t want to miss!

Additionally, we’re staring down another four-star at the Royal Horse Show in Toronto, part of the Royal Agricultural Fair, as well as a massive five-star event across the pond in the scenic neighborhood of Verona, Italy. Slap a mideival dress on me and call me Juliet – heaven knows I’ll be on the lookout for my equine Romeo in those five-star results!

HITS Thermal – Sunshine Series

This magical event, huge and massive as it is, is but a precursor to the several weeks of fun we can expect in early 2017 from the desert venue.

The FEI event this weekend will feature some of the top names in the sport, including recent NHS winner Kent Farrington, Mclain Ward, Ian Millar, Tiffany Foster, Laura Kraut, Lauren Hough, Georgina Bloomberg, Rodrigo Pessoa, and Rio Gold medalist Nick Skelton.
