Jump to it

See great clothes. Have a nosh. For free -- tonight in Saugerties, starting at 6 p.m.

The inaugural HITS Saugerties Fashion Show presented by DIG (a popular boutique located in the Village of Saugerties), will take place at the HITS-on-the-Hudson Food Pavilion. That’s at the HITS showgrounds in Saugerties, where for the past month, nationally ranked riders and horses have been competing in hunter/jumper events. Tonight’s fashion show will feature fine equestrian apparel from the vendors at HITS Saugerties, as well as some high-end clothes from DIG, Woodstock Trading Post and Woodstock Design. Food for the fashion show is from Catskill Point and Mirabella's restaurant.

The Fashion Show is open to the public and admission is free; however, donations to Family of Woodstock, Inc. are encouraged and always welcome

The $22,500 Children's/Adult Championship and the $40,000 Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Championship this weekend close out the spring shows, which culminate on Sunday with the $75,000 Footings Unlimited Grand Prix.

After this weekend, HITS Saugerties takes a five-week hiatus before returning on July 25 for three more weeks of world-class show jumping. The summer series concludes with one final week of show jumping beginning on September 5, followed by the Marshall & Sterling League Finals, September 13-16 when singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega will be performing for the Year-End High Point Awards Celebration.
