NEW IN 2022 is a 4 show circuit of HSITP shows at the previous “Canterbury” facility in Newberry FL (just west of Gainesville).  Now known as ACEA – the Alachua County Equestrian Center…. Our riders  will enjoy 200 freshly refurbished, concreted, rubber matted  permanent stalls, and the showgrounds have gone under extensive renovations to arenas, RV areas, LED lighting, sound systems, Clubhouse/Offices and added millions of new bathrooms.  A GIANT  new lighted outside arena with wonderfully engineered “Fleet Footing” Fiber  awaits our riders both Saturday and Sunday… !  We will expand our “Simply Schooling” offering there so to offer 2 day shows in multiple rings with selected popular divisions identical to Grand Oaks.  The shows will be great for new riders, and horses/riders needing quality, safe mileage over beautiful courses in a professional setting at a reasonable cost that will ready them for HITS and WEC.  Canterbury’s four 2022 shows points will be combined with the Grand Oaks newly designated “Signature Show” circuit but HSITP will also provide for separate HSITP Newberry circuit end Ribbons  at the last show.  We have 4 dates in 2022 and 5 dates there in 2023.  We already have our first sponsor … the University of Florida!!

GENERAL GRAND OAKS SHOW NOTES …..

AT GRAND OAKS STALLS ARE NOW RESERVED ONLY WITH ACTUAL COMPLETE ENTRIES INCLUDING SIGNED WAIVERS and CLASS NUMBERS. …so be sure and get them in if you know you’re coming so you don’t get closed out.  Stalls will be assigned by the Monday morning before the show given the complete entries we’ve received .  We may sell out of stabling prior to Sunday before the show and status will be noted on our Facebook page and this website.  A signed, scanned and electronically sent entry form with credit card information is the best way to enter the show.  (You can still substitute a check or cash at the show if you want to  do so)  The show office, will only serve one client at a time per show secretary and prizes/ribbons will also be outside on the porch area. The more you have completed and submitted electronically prior to the show the better!!   Please look at the class schedule and indicate the class numbers you plan on entering.  If you have a stall, your entries must total a minimum of $50 per day or the difference will be added in the show office.  Entries without class numbers, rider or parental signatures and credit card info are not a valid nor complete entry and stalls will not be issued.
