61st Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show
June 8-11, 2022
For over six decades the Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show has been home to horses that thrill! In the spring of 2020, we faced the difficult reality that, "the show doesn't always go on." COVID-19 presented an incredible amount of uncertainty for not just CMHA but for our entire community. Down but not out for the count, our board shifted our programming to engage fellow equestrians across the country. We hosted virtual people's choice awards, stick horse contests, dog shows, trail rides, and youth contests. Our members created COVID-19 care packages that were distributed to over 200 front-line equine professionals across breeds, borders, and disciplines.
As 2020 came to a close and we cautiously began planning, our mantra became "We're ready for his, there's no denying!" We were ready to welcome back our exhibitors, spectators, trainers, volunteers, and horses! The question became, "Would they come?" We cannot share how excited we were to learn that not only did "they" come but we had a RECORD BREAKING show!
Additionally, because of the generosity of our sponsors, we were able to create a more exhibitor-focused show experience. We provide nightly pop-up events, host a one-of-a-kind lawn party to celebrate our 60th anniversary, celebrate this year's Hall of Fame honoree, provide exhibitors with daily surprise gifts, and honor the late and great Lance Wetmore. In short, we would not be able to do this without our sponsors!
The Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show provides important financial resources to CMHA which are distributed to equine non-profits in our community, supports therapeutic deadline, reinvested in scholarship funds, and is used to help promote the Morgan Horse.
All of us at CMHA want to say THANK YOU for "being ready with us" during this extremely challenging year. We look forward to seeing you all at the 61st edition of the Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show scheduled for June 8-11, 2022. Sponsorship opportunities for the 2022 show are currently open! Please stay tuned for more information as the dates get closer!
