Huntington Beach is home to two exciting West Palms Events equestrian competitions: The Huntington Beach Surf Classic in July and the Huntington Beach Summer Classic in August. These spectacular surf-side events take place at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center – an exceptional equestrian facility in the heart of one of Southern California’s most gorgeous beach settings. Shopping, seaside attractions, fine dining, and resort accommodations are all within a short distance of the Huntington Beach show grounds.
Both Huntington Beach shows feature a full roster of hunter, jumper and equitation classes as well as a number of special events for exhibitors and spectators alike.
