April 9, 2008–It has long been an American tradition to remember special events and people in quilts. The American Morgan Horse Educational Charitable Trust is offering all Morgan horse owners the opportunity to share their memories of special Morgan horses through a new online CyberQuilt.
There’s an actual real-life “Gone But Not Forgotten” quilt that was commissioned in 2005 by a member of the Morgan Community and is displayed at the AMHA headquarters in Shelburne, Vt. Containing more than three miles of thread and depicting several disciplines, the quilt honors Morgan horses that have passed but continue to live on in the hearts of their owners.
The AMHA is hoping Morgan owners will take this “CyberQuilt opportunity” to let the world know about their Morgans that are “gone but not forgotten.” The AMHA says the CyberQuilt gives owners the ability to share special stories and fond memories of their horses.

The American Morgan Horse Educational/ Charitable Trust (AMHECT) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2002 to support AMHA educational programs and services, and other charitable organizations.
