“In our experience, everyone loves showing at [the Del Mar Horsepark],” said rider and trainer Mandy Porter. “It’s a wonderful venue, and Del Mar is a wonderful place to show horses. What’s better than being in San Diego? Dale [Harvey] knows the Del Mar Horsepark well, and it will be very exciting to see the improvements they are making to allow us to have some really quality shows there again.”

Exhibitors can anticipate an entirely new experience at Del Mar Horsepark for 2023. In addition to major changes throughout the facility, all show arenas will feature state-of-the-art footing, with the main arenas featuring the ebb and flow system. The horses will enjoy bigger stalls, all outfitted with rubber mats, and the park will feature a new, expanded VIP area. Make sure to follow us on Instagram at @hits_delmar for regular updates about all the improvements that are underway.

“The team is hard at work preparing the Del Mar Horsepark for our grand reopening,” said General Manager Dale Harvey. “The improvements that are underway will offer exhibitors a world-class experience at one of the most beautiful venues in the country.”

HITS’ return to the West Coast is almost here and the team looks forward to welcoming exhibitors back to historic Del Mar Horsepark in 2023. For more information about the 2023 HITS Del Mar Series please visit
