I'm here! Gotta love Morgans!

My horse is an ancient Morgan mare named Lizzie. I don't know her exact age, but the best guess based on vets, dentists, farriers and other horse people is that she's in her mid to late 30's. My old riding teacher bought Liz nearly 10 years ago and I immediately fell in love with her. I don't know much about her past, but I know she did saddleseat for years and lived as a "wild" horse with some other mares and a stallion. Liz was the only sane one and was taken out riding on the highway with 18 wheelers going by. That was her sale video.

I bought Lizzie nearly 4 years ago. Since then, I've discovered that she's older than I was told and that there isn't a Morgan registered under the name I was told (Chocolate Liz). Lizzie has a benign tumor and can't wear a saddle, so I only ride her bareback now. She's the most hyper horse I know and loves being ridden, especially on the trails. Liz is completely bombproof and as hyper as she is with me, I can put little kids on her and she'll walk around with them for hours.

I love Morgans! They're brilliant, hardworking and so determined to please "their person".

Here's my old girl!

Aliliz- what a great story, she seems like an amazing girl. Love the pics! They are such a forgiving and honest breed, and so smart!

Hey, I can join this thread now, lance is a qh/morgan who's 5ish. He was pretty much an unhandled stud up until last August. My friend taught him the basics and then I bought him and took over his training that October. He's come such a long way and I cannot wait till this snow goes away so I can start riding the trails again.


This snow realllyyyyy needs to go away.



This is about 5 minutes into his first ride. I decided to cheat and have the deep snow as a cushion in case of an rapid encouraged dismount.

They're incredible. I also go to UConn... we have tons! It's amazing how similar all the Morgans are, despite having such different personalities.

Yep, that's my girl, but let me dig around and see if I can find one that shows her body type more...
