    Is this a rated show? As it does not appear on the USEF or the AMHA calender.

  2. Nissequogue says:

    Yes, this is a rated show; “A” rating. The show’s management changed after the USEF’s renewal date of 8/12/2010. The show’s management at the time the renewal was due did not submit the necessary documentation by the established deadline. A new management team was appointed to the show. They have since filed the necessary documents for renewal of the USEF license; and have received their competition #. Its all systems “GO” for the CNY Morgan Horse Show. And, what a show it is shaping up to be…

    So i went and looked…saw a previous post on this blog….

    “The NYSMHS offers a ”new” show for your consideration in 2011, The Central NY Show, as a replacement for the former NYSMHS’ Amateur Show. The Central NY Show maintains the same exhibitor focused, family friendly event, while expanding its class offerings to include an Opportunity/Open division, as well as a Dressage division. It is a USEF “A” rated show. ”

    So if it replaced a show how does the previous management have anything to do with the show not being on the calendar now?

    As far as I can tell it never existed before…and how is it listed as “A” rated when it clearly has no current license?

    The Central NY Morgan show is a licensed, “A” rated, competition. The USEF Calendar has been updated on their website. Prize List may be found on the NYSMHS website.
