The American Morgan Horse Association has announced that the following AMHA members received honors at its Annual Awards Luncheon which took place on Saturday, February 25 in Riverside, California, as part of its annual convention.
A Master's Certificate is given to individuals older than 60 years of age who have been active with Morgan horses in a variety of ways through the years. Recognized clubs nominate members based on their involvement in breeding, showing, training, and just generally enjoying their Morgan horses.
Three AMHA members received a 2016 AMHA Master's Certificate: Curtis J. Merritt from the Sacramento Valley Morgan Horse Club; and Joy and Wes Smith from The Lippitt Club.
The AMHA Club Promoter Award recognizes club members who are diligent supporters of the breed, working hard to bring the Morgan into public arenas. Recipients actively promote the breed at fairs, parades, open barns, equine expos, and other activities.
