Marshall & Sterling Team Challenge to Launch in 2019! :: HITS


Marshall & Sterling Team Challenge to Launch in 2019!

Ready, Set, Team Challenge!

Celebrating its 28th year, the Marshall & Sterling Insurance League continues its storied history of providing best-in-class events and top-rate competition for participants of all ages. HITS is proud to continue its partnership with Marshall & Sterling as we announce an all new Indoor National Finals and a new Team Championship to the more than two dozen divisions already recognized.
While continuing our annual Marshall & Sterling Insurance League National Finals at HITS-on-the-Hudson, held September 11-15, we’re excited to announce Marshall & Sterling as the title sponsor of an all-new second finals. The Marshall & Sterling National Indoor Finals will be held October 23-27 at the Great New York State Fairgrounds Expo Center in Syracuse, New York.
The innovation and excitement continues with the new Marshall & Sterling Team Challenge. Premiering at the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit and HITS Coachella Desert Circuit, the Team Challenge features sections for Children and Adult Hunters and Jumpers Riders. Riders must be League members in order for points to count towards the Finals, but do not need to be members to compete. Riders will earn points individually for the Finals, so a team can change from week to week. In either discipline, Teams of three will compete to be the Challenge Champion in three rounds competition.

For more information, check out the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit and HITS Ocala Winter Circuit Prize Lists. Specs will be available on the Marshall & Sterling page at soon.
