Charles Owen, Inc. will partner with HITS in 2012 at three of their impressive horse show circuits: HITS Desert Circuit, January 24 through March 11; HITS Ocala Winter Circuit, January 18 through March 18; and HITS On-The-Hudson, May 23 through August 5. HITS is a nationwide company with world-class hunter/jumper circuits in California, Florida, Arizona, Virginia and New York. Their horse show circuits provide a series of horse shows over contiguous weeks, in desirable destinations, with first-class competition facilities and unmatched, professional operations.
During these HITS circuits, Charles Owen will be the proud sponsor of the “Charles Owen Club” located in the covered FEI arena and providing a hospitality venue on the following evenings during the World Cup qualifiers: February 4, February 11, February 25, and March 3. Charles Owen will also host a “Helmet Awareness Week” encouraging riders to sign the Charles Owen Pledge to wear a certified helmet at all times when mounted. At the conclusion of this awareness week, a raffle drawing will be held to award one complimentary Charles Owen certified helmet to the winner. “Helmet Awareness Week” will be held February 7 – 12 at both the Desert and Ocala Winter Circuits and will soon be announced for the HITS On-the-Hudson Circuit.
Long recognized as the leading innovator in rider safety and protection, Charles Owen is the market leader in protective helmet design and innovation. A Charles Owen helmet represents 100 years of safety innovation within the high standards of traditional design. Charles Owen riders demand the best in safety and fit while still adhering to the style and tradition of a beautiful hunt cap.
Roy Burek, Managing Director of Charles Owen & Co., commented: “We are very pleased to have such a high profile presence at these three world class venues and circuits. HITS circuit riders are encouraged to visit the Charles Owen Club at the Desert circuit and join us in taking the safety pledge during Helmet Awareness Week.”
