About Morgan HorsesAbout Morgan Horses



Morgan horses were one of the first horse breeds developed inrnthe United States. All Morgans can trace their lineage back to a horse Justin Morgan,rnwho was named after his owner.

rnrnMorgan horses are known for their strength, elegance, and history.rnThe Morgan horse leant its muscle to clearing and tilling New England farms duringrnthe earliest years of American history. Today it is a popular driving and ridingrnhorse, surefooted over rough trail as it is refined and dignified in the show ring.rn

rnrn rnrnMorgans served many roles in 19th-century American history, beingrnused as coach horses and for harness racing, as general riding animals, and as cavalryrnhorses during the Civil War on both sides. Morgans have influenced other major Americanrnbreeds, including the American Quarter Horse, Tennessee Walking Horse and the Standardbred.rnDuring the 19th and 20th centuries, they were exported to other countries, includingrnEngland, where they influenced the breeding of the Hackney horse. In 1907, the USrnDepartment of Agriculture established the US Morgan Horse Farm in Middlebury, Vermontrnfor the purpose of perpetuating and improving the Morgan breed; the farm was laterrntransferred to the University of Vermont. The first breed registry was establishedrnin 1909, and since then many organizations in the US, Europe and Oceania have developed.rnThere are estimated to be over 175,000 Morgan horses in existence worldwide as ofrn2005.

rnrnThe Morgan is a compact, refined breed, generally bay, blackrnor chestnut in color, although they come in many colors, including several variationsrnof pinto. Used in both English and Western disciplines, the breed is known for itsrnversatility.
