MGLI Draft Horse Show Cancelled Due to COVID
Michigan Ag Connection - 07/28/2020
The 44th annual Michigan Great Lakes International (MGLI) Draft Horse Show and Pull will not occur in 2020 due to COVID 19 and restrictions on social distancing. It is not possible to conduct the show in the usual manner and guarantee social distancing and safety for all participants and guests.
The MGLI Board of Directors arrive at this decision with great sadness, but to abide by the Governor's Executive Orders and remove any risk of spreading Covid 19 -- the 2020 Michigan Great Lakes International (MGLI) Draft Horse Show and Pull is cancelled.
This event draws competitors from across North America and is the largest equine event in mid-Michigan. MGLI's attendance tops 35,000 people, making it the fourth largest trade show in the Greater Lansing area, and the 10th largest in Michigan.
Since 1978, MGLI has annually honored draft horse breeders and pullers who have made an impact on the draft horse industry and Michigan's agriculture community. This world class event is made possible by supportive sponsors, industry participants and fans from across the world. While we will deeply miss hosting all our draft horse supporters, sponsors, friends and family -- we look forward to seeing you in 2021, organizers said in a release Monday.
