Local Morgan Community
Awhile ago I was reminiscing with a fellow Morgan owner about our Morgan experiences growing up. She grew up in Michigan and I grew up in Pennsylvania. Both of us remember having a slew of showing opportunities available to us within easy driving distance. Many of these local shows were smaller and it was not uncommon to haul in, stay for the day and haul back home that night. The area I’m in now (St Louis) has very little available along these lines, at least for Morgan owners. Any saddle-club type shows like this are more heavily attended by stock breed owners and Morgan owners face breed-prejudice.
Are there still pockets of thriving local Morgan community out there? Are the types of shows I remember falling by the wayside as a whole? What’s the local Morgan community like in your area?
