owood Elusiv Dream and MaryAnn Schafer travelled to Louisville, KY in June as part of the official AMHA delegation to represent the Morgan Breed at Equitana. Erica Richards and Desiree DeVries from AMHA were on hand to oversee things and help out and the Florida Morgan Horse Assn. helped out in the AMHA Booth and coordinated the Morgan Horse Demos which ran twice daily for the 4 days of the Expo. Along with Dream were Funquest Erick and Joyce Quigley, Triumphant Courage and Karen Martz, Triple S Golden Bows and Barbara Kallaher, Woodsong Courageous and Christina Curtiss, Bridlewood Bo Brummel and Bridlewood Brittany owned by Bill and Claudia Parkhurst and Man O' Man with There Comes A Time owned by Barb Mottern. Dream and Erick carried the American Flags and represented the Dressage/AMHA Sport Horse Award Winning Morgans with a Pas-de-deux, Triumphant Courage represented the Morgan Side-Saddle/Fox Hunter, Bows represented the Hunter Pleasure and Western Morgan as well as In-hand, Woody and Christina represented the Eng. Pleasure and In-Hand Morgans, Brittany and Bo Brummel were ridden Roman Style by Cole Barnett, and Man O' Man and his son There Comes a Time were driven Tandem by Sterling Graburn.

Also on hand to take turns in the AMHA booth were Raintree Red Roses and Justa Joy!!

The Morgans were well received in the Demo's and entertained visitors back at the barn as well as in the AMHA Booth. During the evening Mane Event, Eitan Beth-Halchemy and Holiday Compadre entertained the audience with Cowboy Dressage as only Eitan can do!! (During the day Eitan, well recovered from his heart surgery, was on hand to support the rest of us in the AMHA Demo's!)

An additional boon for the Morgan Breed was when Linda Tellington-Jones selected Funquest Erick to use in her featured Clinics and proceeded to ride him bridleless both times!! The audiences at each Clinic were very impressed with this handsome Morgan stallion's good manners and willing nature!

 

All in all it was a great experience and a great venue for promoting the Morgan Horse to the general public!!
