Update On The 80th New England Morgan Horse Show



The 80th Celebration of the New England Morgan Horse Show is just around the corner. The show will take place at the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, MA July 23-27. The show committee has been hard at work over the past year planning the 80th edition of this iconic horse show. Throughout the show there will be throwbacks to years past. One of the most recognizable is the $10,000 Parkman Foundation Amateur English Pleasure Championship (winner take all)!  The committee is excited to bring this back to the show, as it was a huge success in the past. In addition, they have also brought back classes including Versatility, Barn Family Class (spin off of the original family class) as well as Trail.

One of the most anticipated events at the horse show will be the Two-Year-Old Park Harness Stake. The proceeds of the Inaugural Morgan Stallion Sweeps will be distributed in this class totaling $30,000 in prize money. Prize money is paid out through 8th place, with the winner taking home at least $10,000.

The New England Morgan Horse show is so much more than just a horse show, the committee strives to make this an event for the whole family! They have scheduled events/activities planned each night, starting Monday night with the Kick off to New England Old Fashioned BBQ and Field Day Competition. There will also be a return of the Golf Cart Obstacle Race on Tuesday evening, and then an event under the tent each night following, with live music on Thursday and Friday nights.     

All the fun isn’t at night! During the day, the ever-popular Kids Camp returns with multiple activities planned each day. On Thursday afternoon, we will see the Blacksmith Challenge, be sure to stop by to see what these talented farriers put together.  

Be sure to mark July 23-27 on your calendar, the 80th New England Morgan Horse Show is not one you will want to miss! For more information, visit nemha.com.
