Open Breed Horse Show
The Marion 4th of July Horse Show open breed horse show was founded in 1947 by Charles R. Washburn as a fund raiser for local youth groups. The towns of Marion, Mattapoisett, and Rochester, known as “The Tri-Towns”, pooled resources for their 4th of July festivities and parade. Tucked away down a peaceful lane at the the end of the parade route, the show rings at the Washburn Memorial Park come alive each year to host the Marion 4th of July Horse Show. (due to staffing issues we now have the show on a date near the 4th of July)The main ring, The Arne Arena, was built into the hillside and surrounded by a natural stone wall which offers a spectacular view to the spectators of the annual horse show; and wonderful opportunities for young and old exhibitors alike to show off for friends and family!For over 74 years, many farms and local families have made the Marion 4th of July Horse Show their 4th of July tradition.This year, pack a picnic basket or enjoy some fine food at our food vendor. Load up the trailer and make it your tradition as well! One of the longest running Massachusetts Horse Shows
