Bits & Pieces
Long-time member Stan Allen had surgery last year which was so successful that he and his wife were able to leave for a mission at Nauvoo this spring. True to form, Stan ended up taking charge of the horse program there, doing the training of the draft horse pairs that pull carriages and buckboards throughout the historical area.

Congratulations go to the Morgan’s and their riders who competed with great success at the USHA competitive trail ride and obstacle course on October 4th.  Kathy Johnson and her gelding Picabo El Nino won the large senior division, which was not a surprise as this pair are the  top contenders at trail classes and obstacle rides throughout the region.  Three other Morgan’s entered, and all three placed:  Rachel Warren rode Christafire to a 3rd place in the 12-17 division, Kindra Foster and Indy were fourth in the young adult division, and Dave Johnson took 4th in the senior division with Ali Kazam.  Sixty-four horses competed in the ride, which was held at Dimple Dell Equestrian Park in Samdy, UT.


Our youth show was a great success....about 20 youth competed.   7 Morgan’s were ridden.   Will get some photos soon...

We are currently looking for a place to hold our Annual Elections and Awards Banquet.  Please stay tuned.

Morgans in the Spotligt

It has been a little over a year now that I have had Rocky. I'm not really sure why I took on this challenge, but when I saw him on Facebook, tied to the fence on the killer lot, I just knew.  His breeding reads like a who's who of horses I remember from the past, Beamington, Justa Joy, The Entertainer, Irish Entertainment and double In Command. So even though he was so skinny, sad and sore, I knew what he could be.

He ate constantly for the first 6 months and gained about 350 pounds and got his color back.    There were so many firsts for him coming from Lancaster, PA, Amish country. He had never had his teeth done, never had his face shaved, would not move when he was turned loose on his own. When I turned my other boys out with him, he would just look at me not wanting to do anything he wasn't supposed to. He would not run. They are severely disciplined if they canter. They pull their feet out from under them. His one knee is bigger from being dropped on it so many times. I never thought I could get him to canter, He would give me little buck when I would ask. I didn't know if he was sore or scared. It was such an accomplishment for him to canter both ways of the arena at his first show, to even be at the show.

I am the 7th registered owner; don't know how many had him that didn't change his papers. I used to wonder why some would only keep him for a few months. I now think I know why.  Now that he feels really good, he has come into himself and his Park Horse breeding. He wants to go, go, and go.  This off season, we are working on slow and collected.
It is so rewarding taking a rescue. He still has many scars from his past, but has healed up amazingly.  Rocky is so appreciative, loves to go play now and run with his buddies. He loves people; he is just such a
