The American Morgan Horse Association has announced the following AMHA members received honors at its Annual Meeting of Members, which took place February 8 in San Antonio, Texas, 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.
Four AMHA members received a 2018 AMHA Master's Certificate:
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.
The Connecticut Morgan Horse Association nominated three awardees. Nicole Bobbi of Higganum shares the breed to various audiences, both equestrian and others. Kristina Vine of Wallingford dedicates her to time to building the future of the breed through youth activities and introducing the breed to new people. And Stacey Stearns of Storrs is an advocate for the versatility of Morgans and promotes the breed through trail rides open to all breeds.
