    Wondering What To Wear?

    This is the question that is on everybody's mind! We encourage our guests to dress in attire that reflects the creative and ethereal nature of "imagining." Picture suits or tuxedos, incorporating pocket squares and ties in the colors of the evening, which are reflected in this year's invitation. Imagine flower prints, butterflies, tulle, and flowing dresses! While many will dress in all of your "imaginative" splendor, a black skirt or dark suit is always in fashion!

    62nd Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show

    June 7-10, 2023

    For over six decades, the Connecticut Morgan Horse Association has been "home to horse that thrill" both in and out of the show ring. We are so excited to welcome back our exhibitors, trainers, and fans to this year's edition of the Connecticut Open Morgan Horse Show scheduled for June 7 - 10, 2023, at the Eastern States Exposition. This year's competition will celebrate the induction of two Connecticut Morgan legends into the Hall of Fame; Bill Parker and Bri-B Crystal Piece. 

    We are excited to continue to offer our first-class hospitality, which includes: daily complimentary coffee and breakfast, complimentary move-in meal, daily complimentary stable gifts, and parties after each evening session. In addition, new this year is "premium in-box seat dining." For an additional fee, snacks, meals, and bar service will be delivered to each box seat for the evening session; stay tuned for more information about how to order. 

    Part of our core mission is to "promote the Morgan breed, preserve its history, and market its versatility," this made the decision to welcome back our carriage competitors after nearly half a decade an easy one. As a result, 2023 drivers will be invited to compete in the carriage field and the marquee ring this season, highlighting the diversity of the Morgan horse. 

    As we count down the months, days, hours, and minutes until this year's show, we invite everyone to "imagine the possible" with us!
