Thermal VI

The Desert International Horse Park Desert Circuit features eight weeks of USEF Premier-rated Hunters and 5*/6* Jumpers with total prizes of nearly $3 million. Spanning nine weeks (with one off-week) in late January through mid-March, the circuit draws thousands of equestrians to the premier Southern California show grounds. The Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Thermal and the annual AIG $1 Million Grand Prix highlight this circuit, as well as two USHJA International Hunter Derbies.

Desert International Horse Park is located just 45 minutes from Palm Springs. After setting roots in Indio, California, in the mid-1990s, the shows moved to the International Desert Horse Park in Thermal in 2007. In 2013, the show held its first AIG $1 Million Grand Prix, a tradition that continues today.
