New England Morgan Horse Show Develops New Prize Money Program



The New England Morgan Horse Show (NEMHS) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Pinnacle Program, which will provide significant additional prize money in the show's prestigious East Coast Championship classes. Full details of this innovative prize money fund, scheduled to debut in 2003, will be released in the near future.

Prize money will be generated through enrollment fees, corporate sponsorships and proceeds from the NEMHS annual benefit auction. This year's auction will be held Friday, July 26 after the evening session. All funds above $30,000 raised at the auction have already been earmarked for the Pinnacle Program.

To that end, the NEMHS Auction Committee has been hard at work developing an exciting lineup of auction items, including breedings to five very special stallions: CCR's Outrajus Corajus, HVK Man About Town, Lamborghini In Black, Man In Motion, and War and Peace. Other items include Financial Consulting services valued at $3,000, a web site design, a Pennsbury aluminum jog cart, resort weekends, training services, fine art, and a day on Capitol Hill with one of the nation's top lobbyists.

This year, for the first time, you can bid on these items even if you are not physically present at the auction. To submit your sealed bid, please include your name, address, telephone number and signature; a credit card number and expiration date or a check made out to New England Morgan Horse Association; indicate which item(s) you are bidding on; and indicate your bidding price. Mail your sealed bid to Molly O'Brien, 68 Boynton Road West, South Deerfield, MA 01373, phone (413)665-1165. All sealed bids MUST be received no later than Friday, July 19. It is strongly suggested that you use a traceable form of delivery, such as FedEx or UPS, to ensure the timely delivery of your bid.

Sealed bids will be opened before the auction, but will not be announced. If bidding does not reach the amount of the sealed bid, then the sealed bid will take the item, and will be announced at that time. If live bidding exceeds the amount of the sealed bid, then the item will go to the highest bidder. Checks will be returned if the winning bid exceeds your sealed bid.

All auction items are featured on the New England Morgan Horse Show Auction Page on NEMHA's new website, located at www.nemha.com. Visit the site today, decide which items you would like to own, and either plan to attend the auction on Friday night at the show or submit your sealed bid. Either way, don't miss this exciting opportunity to bid on these unique offerings!
