Nutrena Named 2014 Mississippi Gulf Coast Winter Classics Sponsor

Gulfport, MS – January 20, 2014 – For years, leading riders, trainers and owners have chosen Nutrena feed for their horses. Now, Nutrena is choosing to give back to those riders, trainers and owners through the company’s generous sponsorship of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Winter Classics.

Thanks to the support of sponsors like Nutrena, the six-week circuit will offer the ultimate show experience from February 5 to March 16, 2014 at the Harrison County Fairgrounds & Equestrian Center in Gulfport, MS.

“It’s a great way to reach our equestrian customers,” said Nutrena sales consultant Randy Langston. “We’re introducing a new line of performance horse feed nationwide on June 1 of this year, so this gives us a great opportunity to let the people who use this type product see them firsthand.”

Langston continued, “The new line is our ProForce series. Most of it’s a beet pulp based feed, a high-end performance horse feed.”  

Since 1921, Nutrena has been developing the latest innovations in the care and feeding of animals. The team at Nutrena focuses on providing precisely balanced, consistent nutrients in every bag to bring out the best in your animal, at any age or activity level.

“Nutrena is such a respected name in the industry; we’re very happy to have their support,” said Bob Bell, President of the Gulf Coast Winter Classics. “A number of our exhibitors use Nutrena feed products for their horses, so it is a great fit.”

This winter, the 16th annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Winter Classics 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!
