Plans Underway For 54th Connecticut Morgan Horse Show



The 54th Connecticut Morgan Horse Show will take place at the Eastern States Exposition Grounds on June 4-7. The show will return to a Wednesday through Saturday format this year. There will be a shortened Thursday evening session followed by the exhibitors’ party featuring the Professional Equitation Challenge sponsored by Nutrena. Friday night, UVM Allegro is being inducted into the Connecticut Morgan Hall of Fame. One of the championship highlights is a $750 Junior Exhibitor Hunter Pleasure 14-17 Championship. Barros Foundation is once again sponsoring the therapeutic lead line class. Judges for this year’s show are Brent Jacobs, Daryl Hopson, Margaret Freeman, Kathy Pinera and Dede Bushneck.

Connecticut Morgan is now a 501c3, so all donations are tax deductible. Show management has been working hard on new ideas including a local club night to get people in the stands. They have invited 4H, FFA, and local horse clubs to come and cheer on the exhibitors at Connecticut Morgan. They'll earn a prize pack that includes a stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, tickets to Pfizer Fantasia/Equine Affaire, and CMHS attire among other items.
