Gulf Coast Winter Classic Week II

We finished our second week in Gulfport and all is well.  We had a giant storm come though on Saturday and had to call the show around 1pm but the worst of the storm was north of us and today the footing was great and our Grand Prix was under sunny blue sky.

I want to thank a group of exhibitors who got together and sponsored what they called the National Hunter Classic Breakfast.  Thanks to Daniel and Cathy Geitner, Allison Black and Mark Tompkins, Fox Ridge Farm, Benny’s Wash and Fold, and Gamboa Veterinary Services. It was a great ringside treat on Friday morning for all.  The exhibitors and management say THANKS.

The $2,500 USHJA National Hunter Derby was won by Beleveder and Holly Shepherd.
