All eyes in the Morgan horse world are once again focused on Oklahoma City, as the town showcases some of the best athletes of America’s first breed. October 4-11 marks the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show, the largest Morgan event in the nation.
The Morgan is definitely an equestrian favorite because of its extreme versatility. The breed is known for its free moving action and calmness in the tack, whether it be under a western, hunt seat, trail, saddle seat or endurance saddle. The Morgan’s tractable temperament also makes it a favorite for driving.
