HITS Coachella Desert Circuit

HITS Coachella Desert Circuit features eight weeks of USEF Premier-rated Hunters and 5*/6* Jumpers with total prizes of nearly $3 million. Spanning nine weeks (with one off-week) in late January through mid-March, the circuit draws thousands of equestrians to the premier Southern California show grounds. The Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Thermal and the annual AIG $1 Million Grand Prix highlight this circuit, and in 2017, HITS will feature two $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derbies (Week IV & VIII) 

HITS Desert Horse Park is located just 45 minutes from Palm Springs. After setting roots in Indio, California, in the mid-1990s, the shows moved to the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal in 2007. In 2013, HITS held its first AIG $1 Million Grand Prix, a tradition that continues today. 

Watch Live!  Shownet will live-stream ALL DAY from the Coachella Desert Circuit!
