Gulf Coast Horse Show Announces Classes For Saddlebreds



Thad Way, Co-Executive Director of the Gulf Coast Charity Celebration, is proud to announce new classes for the 12th annual Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show and Music Festival to be held April 21–24, 2010. These classes include classes for the American Saddlebred. It will be a fun-filled four-day horse show and music festival at Frank Brown Park, Panama City Beach, Bay County, Fla. This prestigious horse show is a ten-time award winning show including the Best Multi-Night Show of the Year and the Emerald Award of Excellence for the best managed show with the best food and entertainment

The 2010 horse show will offer 13 classes just for American Saddlebreds, offering $10,000 in prizes in a show that has over $50,000 in prizes and a $500 cash bonus to the barn that enters the most Saddlebred horses. Among these classes is the Five-Gaited Championship that offers $1,000 for first prize. The show will also be an American Saddlebred Horse Association registered competition earning ASHA points. A well-known, qualified judge will soon be announced.

The horse show is a one of a kind show that offers a fun-filled beach vacation and horse show wrapped into one package. For people who want to have a family vacation and show their horses at the same time, here is the chance you have been waiting for.

Christy Parsons of the Saddle Horse Report describes the show by saying, "The Gulf Coast show is well known for providing a festive atmosphere. The local community really supports the event so the stands are packed, there are ringside tables with catered food, and the sponsor, owner, trainer and exhibitors’ party is second-to-none. It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase beautiful horses in the evening and enjoy the beautiful beaches in the day. I’m excited that they are opening up the horse show to include American Saddlebreds."

This horse show takes showing horses to a new level with mornings of live music, breakfast and drinks while trainers are working horses; leisurely afternoons on the world’s most beautiful beaches, enjoying great restaurants and lots of fun; and evenings watching your horses perform at a reserved table in the exclusive Paddock Club. These tables for eight are decorated with white linen table clothes and come with eight catered meals. This unique Paddock Club also provides servers who will bring you a drink of your choice at any time during the show and fare to tantalize your palette. To finish each evening after the show, a regional or national live band will entertain you and allow you to dance the night away. So come join them for red carpet ride at the world’s most beautiful beaches for days at the beach and nights in the saddle.
