Many of you know all too well about the flooding that has been taking place in the mid-south. I for one as a Memphis girl at heart am saddened to see some parts of my hometown and the surrounding areas going through such a hard time. With that said, I am excited to pass on the good news that the Tunica, MS Horse Shows~ Delta Blues June 15-19 and Tunica High Rollers June 22-26 will go on as scheduled. Both shows offer “AA” rated hunter divisions and a $15,000 Jumper Prix each week. In addition there will also be a $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby week II. The show series is held at the Paul Battle Jr. Arena and Exposition Center in Tunica, MS~ just a short drive away from Memphis, TN. The facility boast a large climate controlled state of the art indoor arena that seats 4000 people and has an adjacent covered warm up ring. The Covered annex arena is 600′ x 275′ and there is also an outdoor lunging and schooling area that is 150′ x 275′. The facility contains 600 permanent stalls that are all indoor and 6 turnout pens. There is an on site campground with full hookups. Next to the Arena, within walking distance is a Swim/Tennis/Fitness Center open to the Public.
There has been some flooding in the area but no water near the facility at all. The fabulous Gold Strike Casino and Hotel is reopening today, Thursday May 19th, and other casinos plan to open in the next week. The Tunica casino scene with all of the gaming, restaurants, concerts, and more will be in full swing by June! Please go to www.tunicatravel.com to see where all the “action” is in Tunica. The area is also offering many discounts so it is a great time to book your accommodations. The Gold Strike Casino is offering $55 rate during the week and Microtel has a rate of $39.
