I've only met one morgan (who was a very nice horse) but I think they are beautiful! :)

I'm sooooo glad this thread popped up in the search engine! Hooray for the Morgan horse :) Ever since the book Justin Morgan I wanted a morgan horse. After 32 years my dream came true, a gorgeous 13.3hh Lippitt Morgan mare. I've had my little mare for 5 years now and am head over heels in love with her. :)

At a show I once saw this beautiful bay Morgan mare, High Pride. Very strutty and proud animals. I'm not sure whether it was a gaited Morgan or just the normal, but I really like Morgans. They can also be very strong for their size too. LOL

I'm glad you brought this forum up, kura. It is good to see there are others out there. I never really hear that much about Morgans.

I learned most of what I know at a Morgan farm. They are really smart horses. There's never a dull moment with them.

My trainer owns a morgan that I ride on sundays so I can get the "kinks" out of him after his week of beginning riders. I have known and ridden him for atleast 4 years, I used to get to ride him alone when he was too dangerous for most beginners (nervous and tempermental, the other students needed a martingale and direct supervision). He is 22 or 23 and still going strong. I did Training 4 with him this spring to get him working and we got 2nd place out of 10, he was quite happy to be the center of attention and to get some real work. He was the horse I learned to jump on, but now he doesn't jump because of his age and he can be difficult to handle at times over jumps. Someone who visited the barn said he loved how he looked like a classic morgan, though I know little of the breed. His half-brother is in the barn and is doing very well in eventing, his other half-brother and mother are at another barn near me (mother is retired, age 31!). I will post some pictures of him on here as soon as I get home.

Okay, I don't have any really good pictures of him, but here are a couple. He is old, swaybacked, chubby, shaggy, short necked, and club footed, but he is an amazing horse in his own right.

(excuse my awfulness in this picture)
