Naomi Blumenthal has died , according to the following statements posted on social media on December 14. 2020.
The Great New York State Fair 13 hrs · We are sad today over the loss of a dear friend and colleague. Naomi Blumenthal ran the Fair’s annual horse shows and hosted her own as a promoter for more than 40 years. She was the first name in horse shows in the region and her skills led her to national prominence in her field, most recently as the current President of the National Professional Horsemen’s Association. She might have been the first in the nation to bring computers into the barns to manage horse shows. Our thoughts are with her family and the scores of horse show riders and fans who benefited from her wisdom and skill as a mentor, teacher and promoter.

I am devastated she was an unbelievable support To me and my family as we showed Percherons and light horses. Now it really makes me sadder that we had no fair this year as I live on Long Island and we would reconnect at the fair
