New Information about The Summer Kickoff Open Horse Show



new release from Vermont Spring Classic

The new 2016 Summer Kickoff Open Horse Show, which will be held on June 16-18, 2016 in the huge outdoor ring at the Tri-County Fairgrounds, Northampton, Massachusetts, would like to share some new additions to the prize list. As a new open horse show, we have been receiving suggestions and requests from our exhibitors. In response we have been able to schedule a 14 class Academy division. The Academy classes will be held in the indoor arena starting at 8:30 am Saturday, June 18. We will post the rules and classes on our Facebook page,  Summer Kickoff Open Horse Show.

Also, our Vermont Morgan Youth Contest, at the suggestion of other state youth contests, will allow the performance portion to be a video submission via YouTube.  All this information will also be available on our Facebook page.

The show schedule also provided TBA classes ( to be added ). Among the already added is a Morgan Ladies Amateur English Pleasure class. We are accepting other requests as well.

As The Summer Kickoff is an open show, we will hold an open Carriage Driving section on the stone dust ring in the infield. For more information, please refer to the combined prize list, which may be downloaded at www.nemha.com.
