The Academy classes will be held in the indoor arena starting at 8:30 a.m. that Saturday, June 18. They will post the rules and classes on the show’s’s Facebook page, Summer Kickoff Open Horse Show.

Also, the Vermont Morgan Youth Contest, at the suggestion of other state youth contests, will allow the performance portion to be a video submission via YouTube. All this information will also be available on the Facebook page.

The show schedule also provided TBA classes. Among the already added is a Morgan Ladies Amateur English Pleasure class. Show management is accepting other requests as well.

As The Summer Kickoff is an open show, it will hold an Open Carriage Driving section on the stone dust ring in the infield. For more information, please refer to the combined prize list, which may be downloaded at
