2018 AMHA Convention Schedule



Come celebrate Valentine’s Day with your favorite breed and those who share the same passion as you at the Hyatt Regency in Lexington, Kentucky, for the 2018 AMHA Annual Convention and Awards Gala.

The event will kick off on Wednesday, February 14 with an optional “add on” Early Bird Tour & Taste of Lexington. Tour the KESMARC equine rehabilitation center, a Thoroughbred farm, and have lunch at The Castle. Limited space is available and there is an additional $70 fee separate from any other convention fees.

Thursday we will take you to Blue Willow Farm in Versailles for clinics and demonstrations with our beautiful Morgan horses. The day will end with a welcome reception in the Morgan Marketplace.

Friday and Saturday are loaded with great seminars including The Fetzer Face, Equine Diseases, Navigating the AMHA Website, Ask A Trainer ANYTHING, Social Media in the Industry Today, Workouts for the Equestrian, Breeding Basics, Standing a Stallion, Promoting Foals, You Be the Judge, and a historical seminar. And besides the Annual Meeting of Members, you will be able to attend the AMHA Board of Directors meeting, which will be followed by an Open Forum.

Friday night is the culmination of the AMHA/WMF Stallion Service Auction, always an exciting event. And on Saturday evening we will honor some of our own Morgan folks at the Awards Gala!
