Rio Vista Products Named as Official Grooming Products for all HITS Horse Shows

SAUGERTIES, NY (January 28, 2003)--Horse Shows In The Sun (HITS), has announced that Rio Vista Products is the Official Grooming Products for all HITS horse shows. In addition, Rio Vista Products is the title sponsor of four Grand Prix show jumping classes to be held at HITS horse show circuits throughout the 2003 season.

The $50,000 Rio Vista Grand Prix will be held February 23rd at the Indio Desert Circuit in Indio, California. The second $50,000 Rio Vista Grand Prix will take place on February 16th at the beautiful HITS Post Time Farm in Ocala, Florida. Riders will be presented with another opportunity to ride in the $50,000 Rio Vista Grand Prix on July 6th at HITS Culpeper in Virginia. The final $50,000 Rio Vista Grand Prix in the series, will be held on July 20th at the brand new HITS Catskills site in Saugerties, New York.

Rio Vista Products is a manufacturer of equine and canine grooming products. The Rio Vista range of grooming products is sold at tack and feed stores and pet shops throughout the United States and Canada. Products include Color Enhancing Shampoos, Conditioners, Hoof Manicure, Equine-Shine, EnerGPlus Feed Supplement and Cool Blue Liniment.

The newest addition to the Rio Vista product line is Hoof Stix Hoof Dressing, a new innovation in hoof dressing that will revolutionize the way horse owners care for their horses' hooves. The custom engineered applicator bottle with a unique built-in brush makes application easier. Hoof Stix Hoof Dressing contains natural ingredients like Tea Tree Oil, Collagen Protein and Aloe Vera Extract that help to protect, strengthen and condition the hoof in all seasons.

A portion of every sale of all Rio Vista products goes to the Rio Vista Fund. Established to award funds to organizations for the rehabilitation of abused, neglected or mistreated equines, the Rio Vista Fund issues awards each year for the rehabilitation of a particular animal. To show its support, HITS will donate a portion of ticket sales from the Indio Desert Circuit to the Rio Vista Fund.

Rio Vista is a strong supporter of horse sports and sponsors 246 events a year. "Of the many events we sponsor, the HITS Horse Show Circuits caters to all levels of exhibitors and provides a top quality show for the professionals and novice alike," said Rose Marie Towle, Director of Rio Vista Products.
