This six-week series will offer nearly $2 Million in prize money with featured classes for hunters and jumpers each week, including three $100,000 Grand Prix, three $200,000 Grand Prix, three $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derbies and two World Championship Hunter Rider weeks.

“When John [Ammerman] told me the Vermont Summer Festival was in jeopardy of not running this year due to current conditions, it only made sense to combine our efforts to produce the Great American Summer Series, presented by Alliant Private Client,” said HITS President and CEO, Tom Struzzieri. “I cannot express how excited HITS is to collaborate with VSF on this project. We think this summer in Saugerties will knock your socks off.”
