Thank you to the Morgan Horse Community for this recognition.
I was 4 yrs. old when I sat on my very first horse,
the 1949 National Champion Morgan Mare , Abbington of Shadey Lawn.
I have enjoyed every second of my life with the Morgan Horse since that moment.
Despite the challenges facing the Horse Industry and the Morgan Breed, and despite the many Morgans we all remember about whom we say with affection and truth: There will never be another one like him or her, I remain convinced we have not yet seen the best Morgans we are capable of producing.
