The Gulf Coast Classic Company is excited to announce that its Pensacola prize list is now on line! The first week of November will bring both Gulf Coast Classic prize lists for Pensacola and Gulfport to your mail box, so be the first to see what’s being offered on the Gulf of Mexico this winter.
January 8 kicks off the third annual Pensacola Show Series and offers exhibitors extensive class offerings as well as sizable prize money for three weeks. International and National Hunter Derbies, weekly grand prix and a host of other offerings await you as well as the covered arena for night time show jumping action! The town of Pensacola does the rest. The show is no more than 25 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico. Exhibitors and their families love the show’s convenience to the airport and the town of Pensacola, right on the Gulf. “This is perfect for my customers who fly in and out of Pensacola each week. The town is only 10 minutes from the horse show and has awesome restaurants on the water. The old historic area on the waterfront is amazing. Everything is so convenient – you can go to the beach, go shopping. The show and the area are just so user-friendly!” she added.
Getting to the Pensacola shows could not be easier. Considering the popular tourist destination, many airlines offer several flights to Pensacola. And it’s a great show to prepare horses and riders for the Gulf Coast Classic Shows in Gulfport, Mississippi that kick off February 5th for six weeks of AA competitions with more than a million dollars in prize money!
