Tampa, Fla. – Dec. 26, 2019 – The popular Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit is set to return to the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds on Friday, Dec. 27, and will run through Tuesday, Dec. 31.

The daily feed will rotate rings so that viewers are able to view competition in each ring at some point throughout the week.
In 2016, 2017, and 2018, the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit was named one of the top 10 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) shows in the country, moving up from the top 15 in 2015. Thanks to incredible participation in the 2018 event, the Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit earned the distinction of being named the sixth largest ranked AQHA show in the country. Approved by the AQHA, American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and National Snaffle Bit Association (NSBA), the competition is consistently one of the highest-ranked events of its caliber, and attracts exhibitors from coast to coast.
Under the direction and show management services of An Equine Production, top Quarter Horses and exhibitors travel from across the country, many for the first time, to compete in this renowned event each year. This year, the show is excited to offer an extra day of competition and the addition of APHA events to the schedule.
In addition to being the perfect place to welcome in the new year, exhibitors can look forward to some of the best all-weather footing in the country, ensuring perfect footing no matter the conditions. The state-of-the-art facility also offers ample riding and lunging spaces.
The 2019 Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit is proud to offer the Horse Show Tracker app at this year’s event. The app is free to download from the App Store or Google Play and allows exhibitors to easily access draws, results, scoring and more from any location without having to walk to the gate or show office.
