Mid-Atlantic Morgan Show Takes Hiatus



After a 55-year-run of hosting quality and fun-filled horse shows, the Mid-Atlantic Morgan Show Committee made the decision to take a hiatus in 2012 due to financial issues.
 
Always a “Horse Show to Remember,” the show committee is also reviewing requests made by exhibitors to move the show back to its original dates in August and to find a venue back in the Mid-Atlantic Region. For the past five years, the show had been held in June at the beautiful, state-of-the art Virginia Horse Center in Lexington.

 “In the spring, watch for news of an on-line auction to help raise funds to make a payment on the show’s outstanding loan,” said Mid-A Silent Auction Coordinator Suzy Lucine. “Once payments are made on this loan, and start up funds have been generated, the committee will pursue finding a new venue and go forward with show plans.”
 
The show committee is proud of the many years of Mid-A’s award winning events, and is very appreciative of the on-going support of its’ long time sponsors, exhibitors and friends. They look forward to many more years of hosting a top quality horse show.
