Morgan Trotting

I have read through much of the recent TMH issue the last 2 days. My hat’s off to the magazine staff. There’s some excellent content this month (to be completely honest I could care less about the show write-ups, but the feature articles are great). I particularly enjoyed Stephen Kinney’s article on the trot. I…

Eden Farm Update

It’s been awhile since I had heard much about one of the darker chapters in recent Morgan history. Most of you will remember back in 2010 Beth Lynn Hoskins’ Eden Farm in East Aurora, NY was raided by the SPCA and numerous horses and cats (some dogs too I think) were seized. The fall-out over…

Senior Equines

In honor of both the Olympic Games and the recent highlighting of senior Morgans in TMH, it only seems appropriate to give an honorable mention to senior Olympic equine athletes. That’s exactly what they’ve done over at TheHorse.com (not necessarily because of the TMH feature, but it’s there nonetheless). The individuals they discuss may not…

New TMH Feature

This month The Morgan Horse magazine will be starting a new feature “The Family Tree”. The flagship article will discuss Funquest bred horses. I dabbled in breeding a few years ago and did a lot of pedigree research. The topic still interests me and I’m really excited for this series. Check out more information here.

Big Things in Store for Penn-Ohio

When I was at the WNY show I heard rumors of big things happening at Penn-Ohio this year.

Attention Morgan Friends!!! I have an address where the Clayhill horses are. They have requested any leather halters and ropes, and any and…

Half-Morgan Competition

Earlier this month AMHA announced a Half-Morgan competition program. This program will be open to a number of disciplines including dressage, endurance and competitive trail, open competition, carriage/CDE, and eventing. I know the Arab world has had half-Arab programs for some time. More information on the Morgan program can be found on both USEF’s and…
