get to know the old style traditional foundation morgan horse!
Founded in 1789 as a breed, by a single little bay stallion known as Justin Morgan, the Morgan horse, have been steady mounts for kids to and from school, spent their lifetime working as carriage horses in the city and and pulling stagecoaches through the countryside, served as the preferred breed of horse for the military as cavalry mounts, and covered miles and miles daily as a stockhorse rounding up cattle. Considered "the original stockhorse of the west" the Morgan played a prominent part, as early as 1849, in history as the vaqueros horse on the large ranchos in California. This same horse did it all; with an exceptionally smooth gait, stamina, pride and a fearless commitment to their owners, riders and drivers...along with a personality and spirit so infectious that not only were they using horses, but also treasured family members! Additionally, they captured the heart of any one they came across, so much so that these newcomers had to have a Morgan of their own! Morgans just seem to sell themselves!!
