It was an exciting week at the AON HITS Desert Horse Park to closeout the first half of the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit. From the introduction of the all-new Marshall & Sterling Team Challenge, to crowning the Back on Track Mid-Circuit Grand Champions, to the unveiling of our brand new Grass Derby Field, we look back on the week that was at the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit!
The first of two $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derbies to be offered this circuit took place on Saturday afternoon. John French was awarded the blue ribbon for his ride aboard FROSTED BLUE. Scores of 179 and 195 in the first and second rounds, respectively, would place him second in each, and a total score of 374 would solidify the Overall Champion title for French.
