What is Chicago Equestrian? is a digital equestrian news and marketing website for the Midwest, celebrating it’s 6th year of business. The website provides features, special event listings, news and more to

equestrian enthusiasts and competitors. We have a following of over 10,000 viewers who regularly log in and we will be publishing press releases, results and feature articles about exhibitors during the Balmoral Park show season.

What is HITS Balmoral Park?

The newly remodeled facility will host national premiere equestrian events from May through the end of September. The competitions attract riders from across the country and even internationally for top prize money. The venue expects up to 1200 horses for most weeks of competition.

How will my business benefit?

The horse show season will bring in owners, trainers, riders and families to go with the 1200 horses equaling over 3,600 new equestrians each week. It is a lifestyle for them and they will gravitate toward their favorite businesses and become frequent customers at area grocery stores, restaurants, recreation and more, year after year. Getting the word about your business directly to them through will get them in your door faster each week.
