View Full Results on the HITS Site

Many consider Florida to be the heart of HITS shows, which began in Gainesville in the 1980s and moved to Ocala in the mid-1990s to accommodate increasing numbers and needs for rings and stabling. In 2002, HITS moved to Ocala's Post Time Farm and created a show jumping haven. Boasting 450 lush acres, the show grounds welcome all levels and kinds, from short stirrup to Olympic athletes, national champion campaigners to local baby greens.

On Friday, February 13, 2015, the FEI Nations Cup found a new home at HITS Post Time Farm. In front of a sold out VIP, packed grandstand and two live webcasts, six nations battled it out for global fame but the Irish team prevailed, followed by team USA. Spanning five days, Nations Cup week at HITS Ocala boasted many notable FEI jumper classes with over $400,000 in prize money. Nations Cup merchandise is still available at the Mona's Vendor Row store throughout the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit.

On March 23 at 6 pm, the Great American $1 Million Grand Prix returns to HITS Ocala. The class will cap the winter circuit and is the second jewel of the coveted million-dollar Triple Crown of Show Jumping series, welcoming international talent from all corners of the world. Show at HITS Ocala and experience the excitement for yourself!

Private Barns will soon be available for exhibitors at HITS Post Time Farm beginning with the 2015-2016 show season. With the new private barns, exhibitors and trainers have the opportunity to have a barn on HITS property that is more like home. Barns can be customized to the needs of a client or business. If clients want to stay longer than just the show season, they can do so now. Even if only used during the show seasons, private barns make ones stay as home-like as possible.
