Wednesday 17th February 2016

Charles Owen has returned as a sponsor of HITS and is proud to present the Leading Hunter Rider for the third consecutive year.

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with HITS," said Charles Owen Managing Director Roy Burek. "Supporting a series that is such an integral part of the horse show calendar is a meaningful endeavor each year for Charles Owen."

Each week, the top scoring horse and rider combination competing in the rated hunter divisions at HITS Thermal, HITS Saugerties and HITS Culpeper will be awarded a Charles Owen helmet.

John French was the first rider to earn the Leading Hunter Rider title this year, piloting Boss, owned by Laura Wasserman, to wins in the Regular Conformation hunter division. French has won the title two additional weeks so far in 2016, and John Bragg claimed the title one week after his second Devoucoux Hunter Prix win on Social Hour, owned by Laura Stasburg.

"Charles Owen has been a long time supporter of HITS Horse Shows. We are proud to partner with the premier maker of riding helmets in the country. Their commitment to the sport is something that everyone at Charles Owen should be proud of," said Chris Mayone, Sponsorship Director HITS Shows.
