History of Monmouth at the Team

The longest continuously running horse show in the United States.

Originally called the Monmouth County Horse Show, the much-loved competition was founded in 1895 and holds the record as the longest continuously-run horse show in the United States. The show was first held in Long Branch, New Jersey and over the years, has been produced at various Monmouth County locations, including what is now Thompson Park in Middletown, Wolf Hill (at what is now the Monmouth Park racetrack), in Oceanport and most recently, in Freehold. Throughout the years, proceeds from the show benefited many charities.

In 2016, the Monmouth County Horse Show was purchased by USEF 'R' rated judge Tucker Ericson and his cousin, Centenary University’s IHSA coach, assistant professor and local trainer, Michael Dowling. Renamed Monmouth at the Team, the competition is now headquartered in Gladstone, New Jersey at the home of the U.S. Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation, one of the most recognizable equestrian venues in the country.

In its first year, Monmouth at the Team, presented by Precise Buildings LLC, was named the New Jersey Horse Show Association's “Horse Show of the Year.” Monmouth at the Team offers hunter, jumper and equitation classes. The event offers outstanding awards and prize money, unparalleled hospitality, boutique shopping and a silent auction to benefit the USET Foundation Building Fund.
