    With deep disappointment, the Connecticut Morgan Horse Association (CMHA) has decided not to offer carriage and dressage in its traditional format for the 2021 edition of the show.  Although this was a difficult decision, we are excited to welcome carriage drivers to participate in our first Parade of the Carriages to showcase the Morgan Horse's versatility.  We look forward to providing our carriage and dressage exhibitors with a new and innovative experience for the 2022 edition of the Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show that will better highlight the Morgan breed, its versatility, and history.

    Additionally, CMHA is exploring ways to engage with working horse exhibitors throughout the year.  If you would like to get involved in planning our carriage or dressage events, please feel free to contact us.
