Mid-A Celebrates Its 55th Annual Show



Every year a horse show to remember, the 55th Annual Mid-Atlantic Morgan Horse Show, June 22-25 at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA, will continue to uphold this tradition.

New this year will be the progressive barn party, held after the last class Wednesday evening. Host barns include Broadmoor, Rand and Windward Farm. Thursday night will be Broadmoor’s Annual Ice Cream Social, and the horse show’s exhibitors’ party will be Friday night after the last class. As requested, there will be a beer and wings social hour before the start of Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening’s sessions.

Fay Lowry and John McDonald are judging in the main ring. Cynthia Lytle is judging the hunters and jumpers, and Ellen George is scoring the dressage rides.

Back by popular demand, the Jump for a Grand Expands. Sponsored by Hoover Oil Field Supply, the rider of the Open Jumper Champion will receive $1,000. This year, prize money has been added so the rider of the Reserve Open Jumper Champion will receive $500, and the rider of the third-place horse will receive $250.

The show also offers the $2,000 Added Jackpot in the Amateur Hunter Pleasure Championship.

Now an AMHA Four-Star Rated Show, Mid-A also hosts an exciting, fund-raising silent auction with weekend getaways, gift certificates, gift baskets, and much more.
