The first horse I began taking lessons on was a 30 year old morgan, but he was a stockier, taller type. You would have never known how old he was from looking at him or riding him, he still jumped! I find there is an enormous amount of try in the breed and they generally seem happy as long as your happy. I ride a 9 year old 14.2 green broke morgan gelding now, and although he is a sweet, he does have ADHD, an extremely choppy trot, and carries his head either awfully high or extremely low. He really acts as if he's a lap dog, and he can trot or canter for miles and miles without huffing and puffing. They are strong, sturdy, dependable little buggers.

My gelding is gaited Morgan/Rocky Mountain horse. I used to ride his mother in lessons and on the trail, she was more of a foundation type, 15hh and stocky. She was BY FAR the best trail horse I've ever ridden! Gorgeous and very smart. She did have a bit of a tude, which Jack has inheirited(along with mamas ghetto booty), but had a gorgeous gait and canter and stamina to die for. Because of my back I pretty much have to go gaited, but I would definitely own a full gaited Morgan!

Well I ride Arabs (mostly) and you don't get any spunkier than that. But a lady at my gymkhana rides a GORGEOUS double reg. Morgan gelding & I think he's awesome. The thing I love about the Morgan that the Arab doesn't generally have is the spingy, high-kneed action (for lack of a better term lol). I love the way he runs with his neck arched, head tucked in all proud like and how he prances somehow through every pace, whether it's a walk, trot, lope or even gallop!

I have never personally ridden a Morgan, but there are a few at my barn and I adore them! They have that willing, sweet personality and stamina to die for! I'm awaiting the day when I can ride one. They are, generally, a really beautiful and magnificent breed, IMO.

I adore Morgans! I rode a morgan for 10 years that I took from a 2 year old to 4th level Dressage! I eventually sold him in college to move to a larger horse as I am 5'9''. He is a wonderful schoolmaster and his sale resulted in the down payment for my first house. I also recieved a scholarship through the AMHA that paid for my sophomore year of college. Morgans are great!

I have never ridden one and only been near one once as they are quite rare in Australia. I do really like the look of them though but don't know much about them.

My gelding is part morgan and he is the sweetest, best boy in the world.

I think they are god medium riders I like them but my favorite kind of horses are thoroughbreds!. I go to a stable and they have 72 horses I ride all 72 of them all of them are riding horses. And they own 44 of the horses and the rest board including skippy!!!!

I had a Morgan, he was a blast in every way. He was the new build, tall and bread for saddle seat. He was a gorgeous mover & loved to show off in the show ring. I love Morgans, they're personalities are adorable!

morgan what do you think
