To our 2020 exhibitors.
We are disapponted to say that we have made the very difficult decision not to run the horse show this year.
The city of Northampton still has not rendered any decision regarding horse shows at the fairgrounds and the state of Massachusetts has placed limitations on the use of buildings that would make the use of the arena nearly impossible. This, and real concerns about the ability to keep competitors safe in these tough times, led us to realize that it would not be wise to try to run the show.
We were very much looking forward to getting back to managing the show we started 31 years ago and did not make this decision lightly. We will see you in 2021!
