The application period for both of the 2020 grants offered by the American Morgan Horse Educational Charitable Trust (AMHECT) is September 1, 2019, through November 1, 2019. The two grants are outlined below.
The Harry Sebring Memorial Grant is offered to all American Morgan Horse Association members under the age of 40 who would like to further his or her equine education, skills, or proficiency and/or provide equine-related experiences and education that will further the grant recipient's business endeavors.
Harry Sebring was a renowned Morgan horse trainer and the grant was created by his family in his memory, since he always wanted to see young adults excel personally and professionally in the show ring.
The Elberta Honstein Memorial Grant is a grant offered to all AMHA members under the age of 21 to further his or her equine education, skills, or proficiency, and/or further his or her academic education.
Elberta Honstein and Roy-El Morgan Farm have a rich and long history with the Morgan breed. Roy-El Morgan Farm was founded in the early 1960s by Roy and Elberta Honstein. They passed on their love of Morgans to their daughter, Debbie, and then Debbie's daughters, Elberta Seybold and Erlene Seybold-Smythe. The farm still operates under the third generation to continue the tradition.
