ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

  1. I was going to pick one, but I'm pretty sure all of these could be Morgans in some shape or form. Although L has been seriously doubting.

  2. I think this is a trick question. ;) Aren't they all Morgans?

  3. They're probably all Morgans as I am suspicious this is a trick question. But I'm going to guess, A, B, C, F, G, h, I, K, M

  6. I was going to say all of them because God most of them look like the 'modern Morgan' Sigh.

    But I think maybe a few of them are Saddlebreds. I think that C, E, F are Morgans. I hope D is not. I am torn on G and H but gonna say they are Morgans (But could be Saddlebreds). Even though the horse looks Saddlebredy I am going to say I is a Morgan (could go either way). J is for sure and M too. I think K & L are Saddlebreds but AGAIN who the hell knows nowadays.

    You and I need to have a glass of wine or cup of coffee and talk Morgans. We have very similar ideas about the way the breed has gone I think :) Thanks for this early morning exercise for me I needed it (PS I would take C, E and J in a hot minute !)

  7. I feel like all of those are Morgans, although it has been many, many years since I rode a Morgan (gotta love New England college breeding programs with Morgans at the center!). My personal favorite is J followed by C!

    A, C, E, F, H, J
