The Classic Company is well underway planning for the inaugural Jacksonville Spring Classic April 13 through the 24 at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center located in Jacksonville, Florida and this show will be jumpin’! Weekly $35,000 Grand Prix, $10,000 Welcomes, $15,000 International Hunter Derby, $2,500 National Derbies and more!
The $5.00 Pre-Green Division was such a success in Gulfport that the special price offering will be extended to the Jacksonville Spring Classic! That’s right, only $5 per horse for the entire Division! Besides saving a lot of green, riders can earn a lot of green also. There’s plenty of prize money offered at the Jacksonville Spring Classic and both weeks offer the $2,500 USHJA National Hunter Derby, presented by Legend and $10,000 Horseflight Open Welcome classes and grand prix events!
Week I the $35,000 Crescent Grove Advisors Grand Prix will take place in the world class indoor stadium Saturday night at 6 pm and Sunday there will be a special Crescent Grove Advisors Brunch. Saturday night Week II the $35,000 Classic Grand Prix will be the featured jumper event in the indoor stadium. VIP will be offered during these world class events.
The Hunters will have a chance to hunt for the blue on the beautiful grass turf field in the $15,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, presented by Glen Kernan Golf and Country Club, which takes place Friday, Week II. In usual Classic Company style, there will be a special brunch for everyone to enjoy while watching the world class hunters compete on the stunning turf hunter field.
The world-class facility features a large indoor coliseum with seating for 3,700, two outdoor rings and a turf arena plus schooling rings and 500 permanent stalls. There are also 78 full hook-up RV spaces available.
The Equestrian Center is conveniently located off of Interstate 295, I-10 and US 301 and in close proximity to the Jacksonville International Airport as well as the Cecil Field Regional Airport. The location is ideal for those traveling back from the winter circuits and for all Florida equestrians.
“We are excited to be bringing our shows back to the Jacksonville area,” commented Bob Bell, President of Classic and the Gulf Coast Classic Companies. “We believe the new location with its added improvements will provide an excellent show experience for our competitors,” he added.
