Jumpers are preparing for the desert show in Thermal, CA.
DIHP horseshow update from the desert! So, first off, everybody here in the Coachella Valley always referred to the Desert International Horse Park (DIHP) as simply the HITS horseshow. I guess it still is referred to as that, but the main thing is the the horseshow in Thermal, California is readying for the 2024 season. The Horseshow has continued to grow in size and valley power, bringing hundreds of horses, their owners and trainers, grooms, families and of course the thousands of visitors that will head over to watch the competitions throughout the show jumping season. If you are looking to buy or sell your land, residential or equestrian property, give me a call at 760-285-3578.
The sport of show jumping is part of why DIHP has a place on the worldwide stage. What an international sport! Many different levels of competition are offered, including consistent options available all season to move your horse or yourself up to higher levels. There will be world class course designers to design throughout the arenas in the park.
The FEI show jumping program continues at a variety of levels with up to 1 million Grand Prix awards. On the National show jumping program front, there is speed action, open classic and National Grand Prix with fabulous prizes! For the youngsters, there is a weekly $7500 DIHP 10 & under Futurity showcases horses still slightly green at the higher levels. I have several spectacular properties for equestrians, some of them are not publicly listed, but can be shown. If you are looking to buy or sell an equestrian property in the Coachella Valley, give me a call at 760-285-3578. Take the tour below for this 10 acre farm in a gated equestrian community approx. 10 minutes from the showgrounds! $2,995,000

HITS competitors, or Polo players. trainers and pleasure riders…
Where are the HORSE people buying? The Coachella Valley is very popular with horse owners. We have a ton of open land if you like to trail ride, Internationally acclaimed Polo Clubs if you’re a Polo player, and the HITS show grounds if you prefer hunting and jumping. When you’re in the desert with your Equestrian pals, there are two ways to go..buy a horse property so you can actually sleep with your ponies, OR buy a condo or house, and board the horses. Either choice gives you lots of options in the Coachella Valley. If you are looking for a house, or a house with some acreage, vacant land or just a seasonal house, give me a call at 760-285-3578.
Horses and the Coachella Valley just fit together!
Coachella Land & Equestrian Property Update: Lots of activity in the Coachella Valley when it comes to Land and Equestrian Properties. Land values are pretty consistent, although the selection of parcels continues to narrow. Equestrian Farms are difficult to find right now, although season should loosen up the market..hopefully. The natural fit between horses & the Coachella Valley horse activities, working Farms, and Land with Equestrian potential is obvious. Our affordable, open spaces, easy access to riding trails, as well as our Internationally renowned HITS Horseshow, Thermal and the Empire and Eldorado Polo Clubs continue to draw interest and investments from Equestrians. I’ve been a local Equestrian for over 30 years, and can get you any info. you need..760-285-3578.

Equestrian Property Specialist 760-285-3578
What IS an Equestrian Property Specialist??? Being a “Specialist” in anything usually means that person knows more about that subject than most of the rest of us do. To call myself a Short Sale Specialist, I had to get the required certifications, attend classes, but most of all…I had to List, negotiate and CLOSE dozens and dozens of Short Sales. I did. What does it require to call yourself an Equestrian Property Specialist? Years of experience with Horses first and foremost. There is simply NO way to learn about what a horse woman requires to maintain a horse properly, other than to live it. I made my living as a professional Polo Player for 18 years, basing my horse operations out of our local Eldorado Polo Club in Indio, California.

Polo and HITS update. Summer is winding down, the weather is cooling, and the polo fields are under attack!! Desert Trip is about here, and the two polo clubs, Empire and Eldorado, are both construction sites! Trucks, fences, tents, workers…everywhere. The Empire Polo club will begin it’s 2017 season officially on January 1, with polo tournaments every weekend after that. The Eldorado Polo Club, which is right next door, also begins it’s season in January. While both Polo clubs are rocking and rolling with Polo games, the nearby HITS Horseshow grounds in Thermal, are preparing their grounds for the influx of horses and trainers.
Equestrian activities drive our Horse Property Sales!

The Coachella Valley is an extremely active area for horse lovers. The East Valley in particular offers lots of open land, BLM land, a myriad of trails, riding clubs, and of course the HITS circuit and the International Polo Circuit.
