    Join us for a fun June Show at The Grand Oaks just south of Ocala in The Villages...

    New for June will be our use of the lower fiber arena to hold number of divisions normally held out on the grass. This is to give our grass arena a month or two during the summer to grow and stay beautiful for the fall shows.  This will also mean a few divisions will move back into the Covered arena, so be sure and take a look at the class schedule on this page.

    Did you know we've negotiated not only a great rate at The Microtel, but also at The Hampton Inn in The Villages? The Hampton Inn is not far at all from the showgrounds, and is also quite close to the nightlife and eateries of Lake Sumter Landing...give it a try!

    Join HSITP and Hunt Country Horse Shows at The Grand Oaks on October 7-8 for the first of their Fall horseshows!!

    We have a break from shows for almost 2 months and will be working on next year's schedule, refurbishing jumps, building new and making plans for this year's Gala Awards Banquet at Grand Oaks in December...and taking some time off after the latest points are posted. If you need any assistance or have a comment or suggestion, please don't hesitate to call show management at 321-693-5551 or email us at wittyshowsec@earthlink.net.

    Cooler weather is right around the corner and we'll be ready for it....

    Make sure to get your stabling reservations in early for the Fall shows, and follow up with entries by the Tuesday before the show. Any stalls reserved with no entries are released to those on a waiting list. Our August show was popular with over 215 horses and all stalls sold out - so if you know you're coming - let us know early so we have time to arrange for temp stabling if necessary and build additional arenas....

    The October 7-8 class schedule is posted for four arenas as was the August show but may change depending on the entries so be sure and check back the Wed or  Thursday before the show for any updates.
