Horse Shows in the Park, LLC is one of Florida’s largest and quality driven Local Hunter/Jumper horse show organiza�ons. With the addi�on in 2022 of their new show venue just west of Gainesville, HSITP is well posi�oned to maintain their leadership posi�on within Florida as the provider of large customer focused, fun and compe��ve, value conscious equestrian events… Star�ng in January of 2022, the Grand Oaks based show schedule that boasts wonderful Year End Awards now includes 4 addi�onal shows at the new refurbished and reopened Alachua County Equestrian Center (formerly Canterbury) just west of Gainesville in Newberry FL. Facility improvements include all new bathrooms, 52 RV sites, 200 newly concreted and rubber ma�ed stalls, covered wash racks, and a huge new outside arena with “Fleet Foo�ng” Fiber Foo�ng and LED Ligh�ng. The Covered Arena has new stadium sea�ng and LED ligh�ng and the Clubhouse/show office has undergone renova�on as well. All arenas are within walking distance of the barns and each other so a golf cart is not required.






HSITP u�lizes primarily USEF rated licensed judges, and provides safe, compe��ve courses in 4-5 arenas each show. From crossrails to 3’6” jumpers and above, the rings are usually packed, happy families are buzzing about and riders are thrilled with the quality and variety of ribbons and awards each show. The Grand Oaks loca�on in The Villages just south of Ocala hosts HSITP’s “Signature” premier shows and boasts on site accommoda�ons at a highly rated 300 acre Resort with a full service restaurant with evening entertainment and bar as well as morning ringside beverage service. Courses at both loca�ons are designed for the development of horse and rider, yet offer challenge for those desiring to keep their skills sharp. Fences are beau�ful with significant filler and no expense spared to create lovely visuals for sales and family photos. Take a look at the many divisions offered at each show and year end award opportuni�es. The 2022 show schedule is posted on the website at horseshowsinthepark. com on the calendar page.
