HITS Ocala Ribbons and Results Recap - Weeks VI and VIII
It’s hard to believe that, as we write this, there are only two more weeks left in the 2019 HITS Ocala circuit! Here’s a look back at our last two weeks of horse showing, with the horses getting to enjoy a week off during Week VII!
In Week VI, Cassius, owned by Michelle Durpetti, stole the show! He swept all four of the High Performance Hunter over-fences classes to win the championship!
The 10-year-old gelding followed that up with a second place finish in the $5,000 USHJA National Derby! Go, Cass! (Can you see where he gets his nickname “Ham”?)
Cass wasn’t the only winning Durpetti though! Michelle and Serafina also won the Medium Adult Amateur Jumpers on March 9! Go, Michelle!

Marisa Malevitis also had a great week with KT Forest in the Low Amateur Owner Jumpers - including finishing double clear and third in the $2,500 Pyranha Low Amateur Owner Jumper Classic!
Michelle also rode Cassius to a score of 85 in the handy round of the Amateur-Owner 3’3” Hunters!
