Thank you to all who attended and supported the 2019 Downeast Medal Finals!
Message from the President
Congratulations to all on an amazing DMF 2019. The team spirit and camaraderie were palpable. Everyone was out to ride well but also wanted to have a good time while doing it.

I would like to thank our incredible staff for everything they did to keep things running smoothly every day. Our exhibitors deserve a huge thank you as well for setting new records for attendance and helping us to keep the ring running fluidly and the in-gate always full. Thank you to everyone for driving to Skowhegan to enjoy four great days of showing! A huge shout out to all of our generous sponsors who enable us to offer this fun, competitive, and educational Medal Final to all who wish to come.

I was sad to see the show end as the DMF family won’t be all together again until September of 2020. Please mark the dates in your calendars as we are a week later next year due to Leap Year. 2020 Downeast Show Dates: 9/17/2020-9/20/2020

It is a privilege to work with so many talented people who produce such a great show, and to host some amazing exhibitors who love to show almost as much as they love their horses!

I look forward to seeing everyone again in September of 2020 in Skowhegan, Maine. Have a great year, and most importantly, enjoy those horses!

-Ginger Albert
DMF President
