Gulfport, MS – January 10, 2014 – From February 5 to March 16, 2014, the 16th annual Gulf Coast Winter Classics Circuit will offer exhibitors a beautiful show setting and, for the first time, $1 million in prize money! The highly acclaimed horse show and lucrative awards would not be possible without the support of generous sponsors including Johnson Horse Transportation, Inc.

“We’re very happy to have the support of DJ Johnson and Johnson Horse Transportation,” said Bob Bell, president of the Gulf Coast Winter Classics. “Johnson is an extremely well-respected company with the same commitment to excellence that we strive for at our horse shows.”

With over 20 years of experience, Johnson Horse Transportation provides top notch, state of the art equipment and experienced horsemen who take pride in giving each horse they transport the same care they would receive at home. Johnson’s knowledgeable drivers and friendly staff help to set Johnson Horse Transportation, Inc. apart from the rest, making them one of the best carriers in the business.

Johnson Horse Transportation has been shipping horses to the Gulf Coast Winter Classics Circuit for several years, and the high-quality competition that the company’s founder, DJ Johnson, has seen first hand led to his support of the show.

“They’re great horse shows; they’re great for the people that don’t want to spend the whole winter in Florida,” Johnson said. “The nightlife is fantastic. Everyone that we take there really enjoys the horse show and has a lot of fun. We love being able to go to that venue as well.”  

This winter the show at the Harrison County Fairgrounds and Equestrian Center in Gulfport, MS will unveil brand new barns with 400 extra stalls, in addition to the best grand prix turf field in the country, international and national hunter derbies and newly added jumper classes with abundant prize money to go around.

Exhibitor enjoyment is of the utmost importance to the staff at the Gulf Coast Winter Classic, so riders can enjoy the complimentary rider lounges complete with restrooms, heat, air conditioning and comfortable tables and chairs.
Make the Mississippi Gulf Coast Winter Classic your showing destination this winter. Come for the show and stay for the fun!
