About Us

The USHJA Zone 4 Member’s Choice Award winning Gulf Coast Winter Classic Horse Show Circuit is also a South East Tourism’s Top Ten Award winning event.  Each year during February and March we welcome thousands of competitors to join us for many weeks of quality competition and fun on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast. We host our award-winning event at the Harrison County Equestrian Center in Gulfport, Mississippi. The Equestrian Center is a friendly facility with an extraordinary Grass Grand Prix field, well-maintained all-weather footing competition rings, and many other features that will make both horse and horseman happy. The 2018 event is offering lots of Prize Money and Awards, tons of Point Gathering Opportunities, classes for all skill levels, and of course a big dose of our sweet southern hospitality. You are invited to enjoy our legendary exhibitor parties, Indoor Rider’s Lounges, Pizza Saturdays, Happy Hour Mondays and all the fabulous amenities of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  The area offers World Class Casino Resorts, Headliner Entertainment, incredible dining opportunities of all types and also features delicious Gulf Seafood, award winning museums, beach and boat activities along the twenty-six-mile-long white sand beachfront, and just plain fun for the entire family.
