Twin State Saddlebred Association and the Vermont Morgan Horse Association Combining for New Event



Some very exciting news concerning the horse show scene is coming from New England. A fabulous new show has been created from the partnership of two clubs. The Twin State Saddlebred Association and the Vermont Morgan Horse Association are combining to introduce the Summer Kickoff Open Horse Show. The new show will be held June 16-18, 2016, at the Tri County Fairgrounds in Northampton, Mass.  The Tri County Fairgrounds has been the longtime home of the New England Morgan Horse Show, and is a first class facility catering to the show horse. The famous outdoor ring, with its immense proportions and ringside box seating is ideal for large, competitive classes. There is an newly enlarged indoor ring with covered warm up ring in case of inclement weather. The stabling is first class and the grounds spacious with several work venues. Northampton is home to many fine restaurants and the area is very picturesque. Judges for this year’s show include Chad Cole, Missy Hanover, and John Greenall. A full slate of classes will be held for Saddlebreds, Morgans, Hackneys, Road Horses, with Open and Equitation riders represented as well. A lot of interesting activities and parties are planned which will enable The Summer Kickoff to grow into a must attend event. Mark your calendar now for what promises to be the show of the future!
