“As for the FEI Nations Cup™ CSIO5*, we couldn’t be more proud than to have been chosen to host that event for the fourth year in a row,” Struzzieri continued. “This honor is not only a testament to HITS ability to run a first-class international show jumping event, but it also reflects the support this event garners from the Horse Capital of the World. The City of Ocala, Marion County and the State of Florida are 100% behind this event, from the local businesses, to the Ocala/Marion County Visitors and Convention Bureau, the Marion Country Tourism Development Council and the Florida Sports Foundation, to the spectators who come out to show their love of horse sport."
The FEI Nations Cup™ CSIO5* week (Week V, February 13-18) will be a $1 Million event for HITS Ocala with over $1 Million in prize money awarded throughout the week. Also new to Nations Cup week this year will be sections for Children’s and Junior Riders. Adding to the FEI schedule for the season, Week VI, February 20-25, will be FEI CSI3* and will feature three FEI classes on the schedule.
