Gladstone, N.J. – June 17, 2016 – The longest continually run horse show in America, the Monmouth County Horse Show, has become a brand new event at historic Hamilton Farm, home to the United States Equestrian Team Foundation in Gladstone, New Jersey. The show, now officially known as Monmouth at the Team, is scheduled for August 15-21, 2016. Competition will take place in the Main Arena and this year’s debut will feature a full array of hunter, jumper and equitation classes, plus hunter derbies, mini prix and other classics.

The new website features all the information exhibitors and spectators need for making entries, stall reservations, feed and bedding requests, host hotel contact information and much more. Horseshowing.com is now accepting entries for the event online. Entries will be accepted online until August 1, and then entries will only be accepted during the event if space is available.
This year’s Monmouth at the Team show will feature excellent prize money and awards, superior hospitality, plenty of great shopping from a wide variety of vendors and top flight management from new owners, Tucker Ericson and Michael Dowling. In addition, the show will help support the USET Foundation in a number of ways, including the construction of two new buildings on the venerable property.
“Our goal over the next three years, in conjunction with our presenting sponsor Precise Buildings LLC, is to build two structures for the USET Foundation,” explained Ericson. “The first project is a utility building for jump and equipment storage followed by a judges/announcers pavilion with heat, air and a state of the art sound system.”
The new management team is dedicated to producing a first class event, raising the bar for New Jersey horse shows while increasing awareness and support for theUSET Foundation, keeping the long tradition of the Monmouth Horse Show alive. The very first Monmouth Horse Show began in 1895 and now, over a century years later, it will be reborn at one of the most historic equestrian landmarks in America.
