December 6th, 2011 ~ Equus Events, Inc. is pleased to announce a new event that is being introduced on its 2012 horse show calendar. The inaugural “Winter Classic” will take place February 24-26 at Camden’s South Carolina Equine Park. The SCEP has recently gone through major renovations including footing by Bob Kiser (footing consultant for the 2010 World Equestrian Games), improved stabling with rubber mats in every stall, and many other structural and cosmetic updates throughout the entire park. The two outdoor rings contain “all-weather” footing and the covered arena has an all-purpose footing that suits many disciplines.
The Winter Classic will host numerous USEF “A” rated divisions and classes, classics, and will also feature a USHJA National Hunter Derby on Saturday afternoon featuring many of the area’s top hunter riders and horses. Daily hospitality and a Saturday evening Exhibitor’s Party are on the agenda as part of the event as well. As always, Equus Events continues to offer unique, exhibitor oriented events that strive to give their customers a horse show that excels in the highest level of quality, competition, and hospitality. “The new Winter Classic will be no different and will be a welcome addition to our expanding event schedule,” said show organizer J. P. Godard. “We are very excited to be back in Camden and invite you to re-discover the SCEP and this wonderful town.”
