I just had to pop in here. My first horse (that was my very own) was a little Morgan mare. I got her for my 13th birthday. She was 14.2 and around 18 years old when I got her. She would run. Me. Ragged. She was always in a hurry. She would leap over absolutely anything I pointed her toward. She was hard to ride but she made me a WAY better rider at a young age than I could have ever been otherwise. Gosh I loved that horse.

As you can see here she would get a little...exuberant about even small jumps, lol.


I was already starting to outgrow her here. I moved up to a 16 hand Appendix QH. My legs are very, very long now, lol.

I loved seeing all these pictures- so many of the bays pictured in this thread could have been my horse!

I have an 18 year old Morgan mare, Tara's Isabel. While she comes from nice breeding, she's simply a pleasure horse, and we dabble in dressage. Here are a couple of recent pictures (she's a bit tubby right now as she's had only light riding due to a couple of nagging little health issues).

Beautiful horses everyone! Egrogan you should see my morgan gelding. He looks like he's pregnant he's so fat at the moment! Sad thing is he gets worked decently and only eats grass and he's still this fat but his pastures mates can't talk either cause there all fat too lol

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

Meet Laney (Sugarlane Madonna) - my 19 yr old morgan mare that I've had for 2 weeks now.... She's a sweet girl, and Star (my QH on the left) loves having a pasture friend as well! Laney is a dream to ride, and is very well trained in Parelli/Natural Horsemanship.....Something I've never done, but had to quickly learn :)

That's how the western horse I rode this year was! So tubby even when he's fed on air.
Not the best picture, but here he is from March I think.

Bali Hai is out of a Forevermore son and a Moonshot daughter if you want more here is her pedigree. She is really an English/Hunter Style mare but I always tell my brother a great Park horse makes an even better Western horse!!! Hey they are morgans they excel at what ever saddle you put on them is my opinion.

Couldn't agree with you more! My mare is my Hunter Pleasure girl, and we are now entering into dressage together. But guess who took third place in a trails class last month? Yep, in her weighted show shoes and all, at an OPEN show. I was so proud. She also neck reins very well, she has had to have some Western in her background at sometime.
