2014 Connecticut Morgan Show Shines

The Connecticut Morgan Horse Show at the historic Springfield, Massachusetts Big E facility is one of our favorite shows and our first June event. With just four horses in our string, we enjoyed a fabulous show and we were especially thrilled to have our own Lauren Cojocar back in the irons in the Amateur and Ladies English Pleasure division! Lauren and AMHF Illusion of Grandeur (HVK Bell Flaire x Delusions of Grandeur) won their Amateur Ladies qualifier in fine style, then carried their good luck and skill through to sop the Amateur English Pleasure Championship.

Robert Severino is enjoying the season behind EKL May Acclaim (Town Assets x Illustra Aurora), owned by Eli & Rebecca Lapp. Robert and this fancy young gelding were second in Pleasure Driving Limit Rider, then chalked up two strong third place ribbons in Amateur Pleasure Driving qualifier and Championship. This is Acclaim’s first season out of the junior horse division, where he had several impressive wins under saddle. He is available for purchase if you’re looking for a solid citizen to enjoy in the show ring.

Making his saddle debut at this show and doing it right was Michael Lee Fisher’s Nittany’s Boogie Time (Rowenda Boogie On Down x KJM Heartbreaker), a 2011 gelding with a bright future in the park division. He swept the Junior Park Saddle division at this show and we’re looking forward to his New England debut in July. Like his looks? Call us, he’s for sale!

Cynthia Brown Clark turned in three solid rides in the very competitive hunter pleasure division and secured top five ribbons in Hunter Pleasure Amateur and the Championship with her super gelding, RGR Moonshadow. Way to go, Cindy!

Gradell Angel of Peace (Centerpiece x Gradells Seventh Angel), bred and owned by Drs. Shirley and Jerome Modell of Gainesville, Florida has been successful in several different divisions. At this show, Angie and Ashley Young warmed up with a good third in the Open Classic Pleasure Saddle, then hit the mark by winning the Ladies Classic Saddle, and capped off their week as the Ladies Classic Saddle Champions. This wonderfully bred and solid performer is also available for purchase and is ready to take your amateur or lady rider to the top.

Coming up in a couple of weeks is the Gold Cup Regional Show, and we are excited about debuting some really special young horses. Stay tuned for news!
