The UVM Morgan Horse Farm will hold its annual Vermont Day Open House on Wednesday, August 13th, from 10:30 – 2:30. This event has entertained and educated thousands of people about the Morgan Horse over the years, and has promoted the breed as well.
Demonstrations may include the training procedures used with a young horse through its lunging, long-lining, driving and riding lessons to produce a pleasure riding /driving horse. The versatility of the breed is promoted by demonstrating its different uses such as western riding, huntseat, park and pleasure riding and driving and dressage.
Some of UVM’s breeding stallions will be introduced along with groups of their offspring to show the consistency and quality within the UVM herd. Mares and Foals will entertain the crowd during the lunch break.
Other Morgan owners may be on hand to show their horses in the discipline in which they specialize.
This event has proven to be a great crowd pleaser for all ages. It’s FREE – however, donations are needed and appreciated. Bring your lawn chairs and picnic on the spacious grounds while enjoying the beautiful Morgan Horses at this national historic site.
Lunch can be obtained on the grounds.
