Top Ten Reason Why We Show Morgan Horses

10. We have too much money and can’t think of a single other thing to do with it.

9. Morgan Show horses (as opposed to Saddlebreds and Arabians) are mild-mannered and easy to get along with. (Mine has a sign on her stall that says, “The Queen is Not Accepting an Audience Today.”)

8. The prize money will put my kids through college. (See number 10 above.)

7. We enjoy the challenge of caring for high-maintenance divas and dons during the off-season.

6. Our farrier tells great jokes.

5. There is nothing better than the feeling of passing an 18-wheeler on the interstate, while hauling horses with a combined value of over $100,00.

4. We like eating out a lot. Especially supper at mignight after just coffee for breakfast and Diet Coke for lunch.

3. The free hats and t-shirts.

2. Morning feeding time at the show.

1. The camaraderie that comes with a shared passion.
