The 2019 Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show is shaping up to be another monumental event in this show's long history. More than 900 of the world's finest Morgan horses from across the United States and Canada will meet in Oklahoma City, October 12-19, for $250,000-plus in prize money.
Since 1973, this show has represented the pinnacle of achievement in the Morgan horse world. Longtime show manager Matt Kwapich of Bernalillo, New Mexico, again joins the show, and this year Jeffrey Gove of Seabrook, New Hampshire, serves in the capacity of show chairman. Kwapich, with a dedicated and hard-working show committee and staff, joins an impressive list of sponsors, officials, and volunteers to make each year's show the best ever.
The Morgan community is honored to call OKC home since 1975. Oklahomans can be proud to know that all eyes from the Morgan world will focus on Oklahoma City in October, as the city displays some of the best athletes of America's first breed.
