Of special interest to horsemen and horsewomen is Finish Line® Horse Products’ NEW liquid muscle builder, PERFORMANCE BUILDER™. Performance Builder™ is showing results in weeks and not months and even good horses improve! A fraction of the cost of leading competitors, this exclusive formula is a must have in your feed room to ensure your horse is performing at its best!

“Finish Line® Horse Products is honored to once again sponsor the Classic and Gulf Coast Winter Classic Horse Show Circuits,” said Steve Blanchard, President of Finish Line® Horse Products. “The quality of the shows and the horses that attend are a true testament to the equine athlete and our products support them. The show management at the Classic and Gulf Coast Classic Companies is always first class,” he added.

“We appreciate Finish Line® Horse Products’ sponsorship of our shows,” commented Bob Bell, President of the Gulf Coast and Classic Companies. “Our competitors always look forward to meeting the Finish Line® Horse team and learning about their product line during our shows,” he said. “I encourage all of our competitors make a point to reach out to their representative while they attend our shows,” he added.
