July 3-5 — TUNBRIDGE — Vermont Morgan Horse Association is pleased to continue its annual tradition of celebrating the versatility of America’s original breed of horse – the Morgan Horse – during Vermont Morgan Heritage Days. For over 150 years, Vermont fairs have celebrated this unique and hardy horse, so representative of the rugged land in which it developed. The tradition continues at Heritage Days, July 3, 4, 5 at Tunbridge Fairgrounds.
This special event features competitions in dressage, in-hand classes, junior-amateur horse show, races, carriage driving, and the only Justin Morgan Performance competition known to take place in the country.
A picturesque infield, old-time grandstand, half-mile track, and gorgeous setting in the Green Mountains makes Heritage Days the place to be when Morgans gather to compete and race. The event is open to the public, and all are invited to join us for this fun-filled event.
This three-day extravaganza is packed with events designed to showcase the beauty and versatility of Vermont’s state animal, the Morgan Horse. There is something for all ages, and all disciplines.
