Arizona Winter Circuit Welcomes Maurice Duhon

Maurice Duhon, known around horse shows as Mo, has been named competition manager for the 2024 Arizona Winter Circuit. Duhon is a husband, father of three, and seasoned equestrian professional. He has been on the management side of equestrian events for over 20 years, working for some of the largest shows in the country, but finding passion in the more personalized horse show experience.

Most recently, Duhon has served as owner and manager of equestrian events in St. Louis, MO, including The St. Louis National Charity Horse Show, the Archway Fall Classic, and The Meet Me in St Louis Winter Series. Duhon’s family-first approach translates to exceptional customer service as he considers all horse show clientele part of the equestrian family.

“I am honored to be selected to manage the Arizona Winter Circuit,” Duhon said. “I hope that in doing so I can help the AWC become a permanent stop on everyone’s horse show calendar. As the manager of these longstanding shows, my focus will be customer service and making sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible.”
