It’s time to submit your entries for the Huntington Beach Surf Classic, to be held July 5 – 8 at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center. Highlight events include the $15,000 GGT Footing Grand Prix, the $5,000 1.20M Jumper Class, and the $3,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby.

Additionally, the Free Rein Foundation will offer a Boot Shine Booth and a “Thirsty Saloon” serving beer and wine throughout the show. All proceeds will benefit Free Rein, which rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes horses that have been abused and enlists their help in Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine-Assisted Learning programs.

The Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center has benefitted from several recent upgrades. “Owner Mary Behrens has had the entire upper stalling area graded and improved with DG,” said Justine Makoff, CFO of the Free Rein Foundation. “She’s also doubled the size of the lunging area, and the arenas are freshly painted and have newly maintained premium GGT Footing. The venue looks beautiful – horses and riders are going to love being here.”
