Lowmans Purchase Gulf Coast Show



Larry and Terry Lowman have announced their purchase of the Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show.  The Lowmans will continue to have the horse show in Panama City Beach, Fl. and it will be held on the traditional last full weekend in April.  Larry will serve as Executive Director and Todd Fisher will remain as Events Coordinator.

The new Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show, Seafood Festival and Classic Car Show will return to four nights and will be held April 25-28, 2012 at Frank Brown Park in Panama City Beach.  The show will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Panama City.

“We are extremely excited to have this opportunity.  It is our goal to bring back the fun to the Gulf Coast Horse Show and get back to the basics of having a good, competitive horse show,” said the Lowmans. 

The new Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show, Seafood Festival and Classic Car Show will feature an exhibitors’ party on Friday night and offers spectators the opportunity to visit vendors spanning the equine, food and automotive industry.

“Terry and I were looking for a way to attract another audience to see our great breed, the Tennessee Walking Horse. We felt that the new Seafood Festival and Classic Car Show would give us the avenue to do just that,” said Lowman.  The motto of the new event will continue to be “Fun In The Sun” and the horse show will continue to focus on the exhibitors, trainers and spectators that make the Gulf Coast area a unique Walking Horse venue.

"We will continue many of the traditions of the show, but as with any new management, there will be changes. The show will not have any of the specialty acts or the nightly music as in past years.  Our focus will be on showing horses and having a good time. There will be a Trainer's and Sponsors' Party on Tuesday evening and an Exhibitors' Party on Friday night.  We invite everyone to come and join us for some fun in the sun!" concluded the Lowmans.

The Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show will affiliate with the SHOW HIO in 2012.  The Walking Horse Report will continue to bring additional information about the new Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show, Seafood Festival and Classic Car Show in the next several weeks.  You can visit the new show online at www.gulfcoasthorseshow.com.
