HITS Support Facilities





Horses in the Sun (HITS) is a mammoth undertaking. It is held here in Ocala from January through March.

Thousands of people and horses from all over the world are involved.

Above are a few of the support facilities available to those engaged in making every HITS a big hit!

I can imagine that getting it all organized is a year round job.

Perfect for horse owners!

Interesting shots. Looks like those horses are well taken care of.

There's nothing simple about an event like this, is there? Most big events I know of are 3 or 4 days, like a county fair. This is monumental by comparison!

Marleen said...

That is a major event!

January to March is a long long show. Even smaller shows have so much equipment and people just to get the thing going. I can't even imagine the logistics for a 3 month show. Whew I have to go lay down now.

Owning a horse takes a lot of work and maintenance!

I'm sure this a well appreciated event Jacob. One horse is big, many horses equal a lot of organization!

My sister Judy is the horse lover in my family and she would love attending one of the events here.

I had no idea this was such a huge event! Wow. The traveling veterinarian is quite amazing and of course I can see how that is needed. And the other things you show are necessary for all festivals and events I think.

Just exactly what is this?
