Horse show near Palm Springs?
We'll be visiting at the end of January and heard there is some kind of big horse show about a half an hour away from Palm Springs. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

HITS Desert Circuit
There's the HITS Desert Circuit which is an annual horse show held at the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal not that far from Palm Springs. This year's dates are from Jan 26 until March 14. It's a horse show, but also offers classes and is open to the public to watch. I believe it's free.
