"The Monmouth County Horse Show started in the late 19th century in Long Branch and, with the exception of a short respite during World War II, has been held in various Monmouth County locations ever since. Through the years, the show has been held at what is now Thompson Park in Middletown and at Wolf Hill (at what is now the Monmouth Park racetrack) in Oceanport, eventually settling here in Freehold. 'It actually started as the Long Branch Horse Show,' Morris said."
