HITS’ mission is to produce a series of horse shows over contiguous weeks, in desirable destinations, with first-class competition facilities and unmatched, professional operations. Additionally, the company aims to offer competitive opportunities for riders in a broad range of ages and skill levels.
Originally founded as Rose View Stables in 1977 by Thomas G. Struzzieri, today HITS, Inc. produces high-quality, international-level hunter/jumper horse shows. Based in upstate New York in the village of Saugerties, HITS has been producing shows since 1982 and is now a nationwide company with world-class circuits in California, Florida, Arizona, New York and Virginia. In 2010, HITS will take the industry to new heights when it hosts the $1 Million USGPL Grand Prix in Saugerties on September 12.
In January 2006, HITS entered into a private equity arrangement with Leonard Green & Partners, L.P., of Los Angeles, California. As a result, HITS is able to develop and execute exciting operational and strategic initiatives that both solidifies its well established position as the leader in horse show management and allows for new growth opportunities.
