Jubilee Morgan Horse Show comes home in 2020!

Jubilee Morgan Horse Show Announces Its Return for 2019

After a one year hiatus, the committee for the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show is pleased to announce its return for 2019.  The show will be held beginning with an evening session on Wednesday, August 28 through Saturday evening, August 31, 2019 at the MEC Center in Shipshewana, IN.

The Morgan Weanling Gala will return to its home at the Jubilee on Friday evening, August 30, 2019.

“While we will be in a new location for 2019, due to the continued uncertainty with the Coliseum at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, we felt it important to continue the tradition of the Jubilee Morgan Horse Show and hope that we can count on everyone’s support to make our return a success.” committee member Kathy Beverage explained.   “Our vision is to return the Jubilee back to Springfield once the fairground renovations and improvements are complete.  In the meantime, partnering with the MEC Center, a new climate controlled facility (not a bad thing in late August in the Midwest), allows us to meet our goal of providing our exhibitors and trainers a positive experience while rekindling the enthusiasm of past Jubilees.” Beverage concluded.

So mark your calendars and plan to attend the 2019 Jubilee Morgan Horse Show!


PRESS RELEASE-Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Due to continued uncertainty at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, the committee for the Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show has voted to take a one-year hiatus from hosting the show traditionally held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield at the end of August.

“One of our goals each year is holding a show that our exhibitors enjoy and look forward to attending. With the closing of the Coliseum, we have lost enthusiasm from exhibitors and trainers and have incurred substantial costs moving to the temporary ring, committee member Shanna Gish explained. “We understand that there are no short-term plans to get back into the coliseum and facility pricing so uncertain, we voted to take the time to put on a new and better show in 2019. After 52 years of showing in Springfield at the fairgrounds, it was a tough decision for the committee to take a year off to regroup but one we feel is the best for the show and our exhibitors.” Gish concluded.

The Morgan Weanling Gala, however, will go on as planned. With the professional cooperation of the Buckeye Morgan Challenge, we are thrilled that they will host the Gala this year. The weanlings will have a great place to showcase their beauty and breeding Friday evening, August 10th at The Buckeye in Springfield, Ohio.

Planning is already underway for the 2019 Jubilee Regional Morgan Horse Show. The goal is for the show to be back refreshed, stronger and better for everyone that has supported the show for so many years.
