Guess Who’s Coming to New England?


When word got out that the Kohler four-in-hand was coming to New England Morgan Regional–“just to work”–show manager Mark Caisse got on the phone with coachman Jeromy Smith.


As a result, the team of Kohler bred Morgans has been pressed into service to escort officials to the ring on several evenings during the week at Northampton.


“We are all very excited that Kohler Stables has offered to display their magnificent four-in-hand hitch,” show manager Mark Caisse acknowledges. “Four-in-hands have been part of the New England tradition and it’s an honor that this spectacular group will make their public debut at our 75th anniversary. We thank Mr. Kohler and all those at Kohler Stables for their great addition to our show.”


On Friday evening, when the show is dedicated to long time manager, the late Fred Nava, Fred’s own much-loved pair of English Shires will usher officials into the ring with Barry Roberts on the lines.


The spectacle of carriage teams taking a circle of that outdoor ring under those big Northampton skies will be a graceful addition to the show that is celebrating its anniversary in 2014!


New England Regional gets under way on Monday, July 21 through July 26th at Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, Massachusetts.

How the 50/50 Calcutta Bidding Works:

Each Trainer competing will have a bidding sheet located under the tent by the Silent Auction.   The bidding will open Tuesday July 22nd at 9AM and be open until Friday July 25th at 4PM.  The highest bidder on each trainer will be locked in and the sole bidder on that rider. Once the bidding closes, they are responsible for paying that amount prior to the Calcutta event taking place on Friday night. The highest bidder on the winner trainer (50% of score on time, 50% of score on judge’s opinion of ride) will receive ½ of the total winning bids.

Progressive Box Seat Party Thursday Night


As you all know the barns and tents here at New England are not conducive for a barn isle party.  So why not a Progressive Box Seat Party!

The show will prove one or two tables behind each BOX.  I am calling the whole wooden structure a BOX.

Inside there are 4 sets of box seats.  We suggest you talk with each other and join forces.  Each set of seats does not have to do something different.  There will be some boxes who do not wish to participate and participants who don’t have a box who would like a table.  So everyone is welcome to participate.

There will be marvelous poster mounted on the back of the BOXES.  We encourage you to move around, not only to sample the food but to see the 75 years of New England history.  All of the pictures are wonderful memories of this great show.

If you have any questions or special requests please let me know or text 413 447-5270.

We look forward to seeing all ringside Thursday night.

NEW THIS YEAR!!!  Printable Membership Cards! Log in to the website, go to your profile, and there is a link allowing you to download your membership card. 
If you are having difficulty printing, follow these tips:

Tips on printing your membership card:

Printing from a Mac works perfectly. It doesn't try any fancy resizing; it outputs the file at the size specified.

  • In the popup Print Dialog, be sure to select the Scale option (instead of "Scale to Fit", the default) and set it to 25%.

Printing from Windows is more complex.

Members using Windows can take these steps:  

  1. Click the membership card link. 
  2. Select 'open' - the image appears in Windows photo viewer. 
  3. Select 'print -> print' from the menu. 
  4. On the right side of the print popup, select 'wallet.' 
  5. Un-check the 'fit picture to frame' checkbox. 
  6. Press the 'print' button.
