Now according to the Ebony Horsewomen's Facebook page, the Connecticut Classic Horse Show has gone the way of Riverfest.
Is this becoming a Hartford tradition to cancel events two weeks before the event?
According to their Facebook page today:
Connecticut Classic Horse Show and Ebony Horsewomen, Inc regret to inform you that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have cancelled the 2016 Connecticut Classic Horse Show. We are disheartened because we know many people were looking forward to this event. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone for their enthusiasm, support, and help advocating for this event.
We hope to be able to bring the Connecticut Classic Horse Show to Hartford in 2017."
It is unclear at this point what City resources and if any city dollars had been put into the event yet.
Maybe next year.
