    It is with deep disappointment that the Connecticut Morgan Horse Association (CMHA) has announced the cancellation of the 60th Anniversary Connecticut Morgan Open Horse Show scheduled for June 3-6, 2020. We believe that given the current circumstances this decision is in the best interest of our exhibitors, trainers, vendors, and spectators.

    In the upcoming weeks, CMHA will be exploring alternative events to help celebrate our 60th anniversary. Please visit us on Facebook to stay updated on upcoming events.

    The well-being and health of the entire community is of the utmost importance during this period. CMHA encourages all of those involved to follow local, state, and national guidelines. The Connecticut Morgan Horse Association eagerly awaits the celebration of its 60th anniversary of the show in 2021. Please plan to join us June 2-5, 2021!

    Our person of the year is no stranger to the Morgan world. This person has been an active owner, enthusiast, supporter, and horse show mom for many years. This person has served the Morgan horse industry in various capacities, always giving their time and energy to help strengthen the breed, our shows, and youth programs.

    This person joined the CMHA board of directors a couple of years ago, and quickly assumed leadership roles to help grow our club and support our on going activities. This person has been instrumental in helping launch our new website, and transition to a new platform, while saving all of our historical information from the old platform. For any of you that have visited our website in the previous few years, you know how rough it was, and how much we needed a new one! This person has given hundreds of hours of their own time to work with our webmaster and get a new website built and launched.

    For the past two years, this person has organized our points tabulations and year-end awards. This person’s creativity and negotiation skills have helped us acquire nice year-end awards, while keeping the many different parts of our points system straight. Please join me in thanking Colleen Tondalo, our 2019 person of the year, for her outstanding contributions to Connecticut Morgan Horse Association.
