In an effort to introduce people who are unfamiliar with the Morgan breed, the American Morgan Horse Association is organizing an event targeting the general public. Dubbed "Day of the Morgan," this event will open the doors to more than 100 Morgan barns across the country, where visitors will get an up close and personal introduction to the best breed on Earth.
The event is slated to take place on October 28, 2017, with a "rain date" of November 4, if you have a conflict.
Whether you have a couple of Morgans that you pleasure ride on the weekends or have a large training stable, commit to promoting the breed with an open barn. Perhaps you have a dependable Morgan on which you can give pony rides? If you are into carriage driving, a ride in your buggy around the farm would be great. If you can do demonstrations, great! But if you can't, no problem, because, if nothing else, let visitors brush, pet, feed a horse a carrot or take a selfie. This is your day to make your Morgans shine!
