The American Saddlebred Horse & Breeders Association has announced the addition of Morgan King as its development manager. In this role, she will be leading the fundraising, sponsorship and grant application efforts.
Morgan comes to the association after spending her life serving the American Saddlebred. The breed has been her passion since childhood and it has provided a fantastic community for her to foster her professional career. Through her years as a respected competitor and sales representative at National Horseman, she forged a tremendous reputation in the industry in and out of the ring.
"I am looking forward to giving back to a community that has given me so much," said Morgan. "I look forward to the connections I make with the people I enjoy being around most – fellow Saddlebred lovers! I also love that my role will help support ASBHA fulfill all of its worthy goals and missions."
ASHBA Development will serve an integral part in making the programs and activities that enrich the Saddlebred experience possible. Morgan brings extensive experience with show horse industry sales, communication, client relations and grant writing for non-profits. Her talents will look to increase ASHBA's ability to raise funds and expand the development programming in and out of the breed community.
A graduate of the University of Tampa, Morgan earned an undergraduate degree in psychology and had two years of fieldwork in clinical health and Alzheimer's Institute.
A native of New Hampshire, Morgan called Florida home for most of her early life. Through her career and love of American Saddlebreds, she is thrilled to be settling down in the Lexington area. When she is not spending her time in the saddle or at a horse show, Morgan enjoys cooking and supporting the Tampa Bay Lightning.
