Johns Island, South Carolina (March 4, 2013) – Classic Company is heading to Conyers, Georgia and the Georgia International Horse Park to kick off its Atlanta Spring Classic March 20 through the 30th.

“We have been talking with the State Veterinarians in Mississippi, Florida and Georgia so that our protocol is appropriate for the horses competing in our upcoming show in Conyers,” said Classic Company President Bob Bell.  “At this point, our procedure will be to meet all participants at the only entrance to the Park.  Exhibitors must provide their horses’ health papers and those health papers must have been drawn within seven days from the date of arrival at Conyers,” Bell said.  “Our procedure continues to be full cooperation with the state veterinarians,” he added. Dr. Juan Gamboa, Official Veterinarian of the Classic Company and avid exhibitor, said, “With the protocols we have in place, I am definitely going to show my horses at the Atlanta Spring shows.”

All exhibitors at the Atlanta Spring Classic will be stabled in the permanent stalls, complete with stall mats, wide aisles and easy drive-up access.  For more information on the Atlanta shows and the health protocols, please contact the Gulfport office until March 10th at 228.832.2745 or the Corporate Office on Johns Island after March 12 at 843.768.5503.  Or, email the Classic Company at info@classiccompany.com any time.  Remember, make sure to email your shavings and feed orders to queensalesgihp@gmail.com or contact Avery Harper at 770.722.2311 for information.

One thought on “Update on Atlanta Spring Classic Health Protocol”

  1. I am so glad to hear that the protocols have been updated to insure that infected horses do not get on to the grounds and then spread the disease around. Horses traveling from place to place on the show circuits can cause serious spread of diseases all around the country. Thanks to all who work hard to keep all of our horses healthy.
