AMHA To Recognize Half
Morgans in New Competition Program
—The American Morgan
Horse Association (AMHA) is pleased to recognize half Morgan horses as part of a
new competition program. Horses that have either a registered Morgan sire or dam
are eligible to participate in AMHA's "Half Morgan Competition
Program" (HMCP) for awards and recognition.
The program is divided into five distinct divisions: Open Show, Dressage,
Carriage/CDE, Eventing, and Endurance/Competitive Trail. Horses are accepted in
the program by an initial enrollment fee, with nominal renewal fees annually
thereafter. Full-blooded Morgans are ineligible for this program. The sire or
dam of the half Morgan must be registered with AMHA and the name should be
known. All horses owners and those who compete with the horse must be AMHA
members. Points are accumulated following each competition and submitted for
year-end awards in each division.
"We have so many Morgans competing and winning in the open competition
arena, we wanted a way to recognize their Morgan connection," said AMHA
Executive Director, Julie Broadway.
