Justin Morgan Performance Competition

Sunday, July 3rd, 2016, noon. 

The Justin Morgan Performance Competition is an overall test of the willingness, versatility and style of the Morgan horse. The progenitor of the breed, Justin Morgan’s horse, Figure, exemplified this ideal of versatility. He was said to excel at all the activities that constitute this competition. Each entrant must perform in all four sections of the competition: trotting race in harness, running race under saddle, pleasure class under saddle, and the

stone-boat pull.

An individual horse may have a different rider, driver and/or handler for each section. Each section of the competition will be placed, and will count 25% toward the final placing. Horses must be four years of age or older. This competition is open to amateurs and professionals.

Please note the times for this class. Mandatory race meeting is at 9:00 a.m.

This competition will begin at 12 noon while all other competition is on lunch break. Each division will be run consecutively in the following order:

  • Half-mile harness trot
  • Half-mile gallop under saddle
  • Pleasure saddle competition
  • Stone-boat pull

The Justin Morgan Performance Competition Awards will take place in the main ring after the stone-boat pull concludes.
