Updates On 2018 New England Regional



The show committee is busy getting ready for the 79th year of the New England Regional Morgan Horse Show, which will be taking place from Tuesday, July 24th through Saturday, July 28th at the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, MA.

They are very excited to announce that Latitudes will return under the tent. They will be bringing some dining favorites from West Springfield, but they will also be dressing up the tent with big screen TVs, lounge furniture, beautiful lighting and all the little touches that will welcome everyone to gather before, during and after classes. Once again there will be a sponsor’s lounge ringside courtesy of Pleasant Brook Farm & Feed.  

The show promises to be another spectacular showcase of the Morgan breed. The show committee works tirelessly to provide a fun-filled week of activities to pair with the competition in and out of the show ring. The show has many added events this year in conjunction with “The Year of The Sport Horse”, including a Western Dressage Clinic with Chuck Patti, the popular High Point Sport Horse Award will return again this year, The East Coast Hunter Classic will bring fences to the main ring, and a scurry obstacle class for those willing to team up with a Pro and give it a go.

New England is also honored to recognize four individuals this year with their induction into the Northampton Horseman’s Hall of Fame. Phyllis and Curtis Collins will be inducted on Friday night and Saturday will feature the induction of both Jackie Ross and Elsie Rodney. These four individuals have left an indelible impression on our horse show as well as the sport horse arenas. We are very thankful that they have been part of our show and are members of our Morgan family.

Many great champions have graced the ring here in Northampton. This week, two owners will take finals passes with their special horses on Northampton’s victory lane. Equinox Bossanova GCH and Medomak French Invasion GCH will be celebrated for their storied show careers. These two champions will be the first two East Coast Champions who will be part of the new ring signage. Everyone is invited to visit the table under the tent for more information as to how you can honor your own East Coast Champion.

There will be nightly parties and events at this year’s show. The new Morgan Stallion Sweeps will be launched on Thursday night with the inaugural competition to be held in 2019. Make sure to be on hand for all of the festivities.
