After months of work, HITS is proud to unveil the new and improved HITS Commonwealth Park next week as HITS Culpeper 2014 kicks off on April 16.
“No piece of ground went untouched this winter and we are both ready and excited for next week’s show. Exhibitors have already started moving in and the responses to the upgrades have been overwhelmingly positive. The work that was done at Commonwealth Park has not only added another jewel to the HITS circuits, but has also presented an additional top show facility to riders from the East Coast and beyond.”
— Tom Struzzieri, HITS president and CEO
A new look…
Highlighting the renovations, five new MD BarnMaster barns were erected with 520 state-of-the-art permanent stalls. Additional improvements to the stabling area include new wash racks, newly wired electrical service, and new manure bins. Roads and aisles have been graded to improve drainage, and the entire flow of traffic, both equine and vehicular, has been streamlined.
The RV parking area has been completely relocated to the tree-lined area behind the lunging pad. While aesthetically pleasing, this area has been groomed and graded, and will accommodate 60 RVs with ample space and electrical hookups.
Footing in the Hunter rings, schooling areas and Jumper 1 has been upgraded, and the footing in many other rings has been replaced to match that of the Grand Prix Ring.
