Dear Friends and Exhibitors,
Welcome to the 38th Annual Cape Cod Hunter Horse Show Series. Thankfully the weathermen were wrong and we have had a much milder winter then predicted, so Spring will arrive and we will have a great show season.
We have again made some changes to our shows for 2016. We have changed the heights of some of the jumper classes in order to give those interested more challenging courses. The pony hunters are being offered a USEF classic and we will offer the MHC and NEHC 2’6″ & 2’9″ Open Hunter Derbies, with prize money, awards and beautiful ribbons. These classes will be held at all the shows in Raynham. We have added Hunter and Jumper Take 2 Thoroughbred divisions.
Our finals show will be held at Saddle Rowe Farm in Medway, MA, With the new 85 x 250 indoor, heated viewing room and ample parking, it will make for a great venue no matter the weather.
Again this year we are offering the Marshall & Sterling classes, the three jumper divisions with champion-ships, a $500 Jumper Classic and $500 Mini Prix. The jumper divisions will continue to be part of the 4th annu-al circuit awards, which also includes the Baystate Circuit Awards. Both the Norfolk Hunt Horse Show and the South East Hunter Association horse shows will be participating in this exciting award series.
Our ever-popular $1000 cash trainer’s award is now in its 7th year. The drawing will be at the Cape Cod Hunter Finals Horse Show in Medway, MA at Saddle Rowe Farm.
We will offer the ability to enter online via horseshowing.com.
Our office will have three full time secretaries at our three ring shows. Julie Shea will head up our office along with the Diane MacDonald and Carol Ames.
2016 is Cape Cod Hunter Horse Shows 28th anniversary of our awards program. We will again be presenting two custom McGuinn Tack Trunks, sponsored by McGuinn Farms of Ft. Lauderdale, FLA to our High Point Equitation and Hunter exhibitors. The award presentations will again be presented at our co-hosted banquet with the South East Hunter Association on November 13th at the Monponsett Inn in Halifax, MA.
Our dedicated staff and I look forward to your participation at the horse shows. As always there is no membership requirement for our series awards.
I thank you all for you’re past support and look forward to making our 38th year of horse shows a memorable one.
Sincerely, Nancy Venezia
Owner and Manager
