I love my Morgan like everyone else said they have very level heads and mine has never spooked and couldn't care less about all the things I've thrown at him (he just tries to eat it). Also, he is a very easy keeper even at 18 and most people think he is much younger than he is. the thing about Morgans is that they're a very varied breed. there are a lot of Morgans that are probably mostly saddle bred and so they will not be the same as a foundation ("pure-er" bloodlines and closer to Justin Morgan). However, I have never really met one so I can really comment on their conformation. My Morgan is foundation but is a "Government Morgan" so he was out crossed to thoroughbreds and looks a lot different than a "Lippit Morgan" which will be the most "classic". As far as disciplines go I would look at his pedigree and see which family he's from and if you can find what his parents did.

P.S. Morgans originated from one sire, Figure, later called Justin Morgan after one of his owners. As far as I've read there is no proof who is sire and dam are so no one can say from what breed Morgan's are descended from. However, on the online pedigree data base it says he descends from a thoroughbred and an Angloarab. I don't know how much evidence supports that but i personally can't see a Morgan coming out of that mix but that's my fairly uninformed opinion.
sorry for so long a post I could talk all day about Morgan history! lol hope the info helps and good luck with the horse search!

Normally I wouldn't use Wikipedia as a "source" but this write-up is good:

You can't go wrong with a Morgan! This is the only breed I have ever owned. They are smart and willing horses with a will to work along with the most personable personalities I have ever seen in a horse. Truly a breed that can do just about anything, and they are typically very easy keepers!

There are two Morab registries, at least there was a one point in time.

I have owned two Morabs. One before the Morab registry was widely known, the second had papers with the original registry which was in Wisconsin, I think.

Both of them inherited the bet of both breeds.

One stayed with me until his end time, the other I had to sadly sell because I couldn't afford two horses at that time and it was either get out of horses altogether or buy a gaited horse so I could keep riding.

He could also be registered as a half-Arab

I went to go see him, and he turned out not to be "the one" his trot was super inconsistent, something you may expect from a four year old, he was all over the place, and even though I tried everything, I could barely get him to go straight, at the same consistent speed. I am keeping him in mind, but for right now, he is off the list.

That's to bad he didn't work out. I love Morgans though, like everyone else said, they are wonderful horses. I own a Lippitt Morgan yearling colt, and he is amazing! He is very smart and catches on to things much quicker than my other horse, and on top of that the first time I saddled him, he didn't react AT ALL! He just stood there and fell asleep. That is just how he is, new things don't bother him, even at this age. The first four pictures are of him recently, and the last two are him at 6 days with his mom, and his sire. Like Wau Tau said, I would recommend getting a Lippitt Morgan, an old-style, or Government bred. I personally think the new style Morgans shouldn't really be called Morgans anymore, they are just so different.
