HITS Ocala Winter Circuit  |  January 14 - March 22, 2020  |  Prize List available soon!
Overall, prize money will be increased by nearly $2 million, for a twelve week total approaching $5 million! The Sunday Grand Prix will increase to $150,000 most weeks, with Weeks V and IX increasing to $200,000. The season will finish with the seventh annual Great American $1 Million Grand Prix, Sunday, March 22.
Hunters will be in on the action too! The Devoucoux Hunter Prix will double in prize money to offer $10,000 each week and the two USHJA International Hunter Derbies, Weeks IV and X, will double to $50,000 each.

New footing and footing refurbishment will take place throughout the grounds. Plans include the installation of a new Schooling Area for the Grand Prix Ring and the enlargement of Hunter Ring 3, as well as new cedar post-and-rail fencing for all the rings. 
Circuit Tent Stalls will again be priced at $1000 for the ten weeks – that’s $100 per week, a price that can’t be beat anyplace else.  HITS Ocala offers over 1,500 tent stalls and 600 permanent stalls on-site, as well as 100 permanent paddocks and RV Hookups right on the grounds. From one or two tent or permanent stalls to a private barn of 20+ stalls including a private ring, we can take care of all your needs.

The Ship-in Area will be relocated behind tents 12-16. This is a great space with plenty of parking and room for grazing, less traffic and congestion, and easy ingress/egress from the main gate of the grounds.

We are improving the pathway to the Stadium from Jumper 1. This will help with the separation of horse and golf cart traffic, a theme you will see all around the grounds. New paving around many of the barns will also aid in traffic and dust control.
New foodservice options will be available on the infield.  The existing restaurant will be remodeled, and the weekly parties in the vendor courtyard will return with a new vibe, Eat and Boutique, featuring local restaurants and special offers from our on-site vendor shops.
Our new VIP Hospitality plan will be available on an individual membership basis.  Enjoy unlimited access to VIP at either the Stadium or Grand Prix Ring with complimentary continental breakfast each morning, and lunch, including beer and wine, available for purchase each day.  Lunch guests may be added at a per-person cost.
Our new partnership with GenZHomes modular housing expands our on-site housing options.  We now have more options for short-and long-term housing rentals right on the grounds.

As a company, HITS has a nearly 40 year history of producing top-level USEF-Rated shows. As individuals, we bring more than a century of equine experience, from riding and training to barn and show management, to our namesake circuit. We look forward to seeing you for another great season.  We can take care of all your stabling, housing and showing needs - during the circuit, for the season, or even year-round.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s circuit. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help you make your plans, please do not hesitate to contact us at 845-246-8833 or
