AMHA Seeks Members for Team Morgan 2012



The American Morgan Horse Association (AMHA) is pleased to announce it is seeking five young equestrians to apply for Team Morgan 2012. The three-part competition, which will be comprised of hunter seat equitation, saddle seat equitation, and driving, will take place July 4-7, 2012 at the Bluegrass Morgan Classic Horse Show in Lexington, Kentucky.

Five riders will be selected to become members of this year's team. Applicants must be between the ages of 14-21 years of age, AMHA youth members in good standing, and will be judged on several elements including horsemastership, character, and writing ability. Riders who have competed in two Team Morgan events are ineligible. The application fee is $50 and selected team members will be required to obtain sponsorship of at least $350 to help offset expenses. Applicants also are responsible for travel and hotel expenses to and from the event.

In 2007, the American Morgan Horse Association and the American Morgan Horse Educational Charitable Trust approved "Team Morgan," an international, multi discipline competition program for Morgan youth ages 14-21. Past Team Morgan competitions have included saddle seat competitions in South Africa and the Massachusetts Morgan Horse Show, as well as a competition in North Carolina in August 2009. The Team's last competition was a hunter seat equitation event in November 2010.

Applications to take part in this competition are now available on www.morganhorse.com, by going to "Forms and Publications" and looking for "Team Morgan 2012 Application." Contact Christina Koliander with any questions at chris@morganhorse.com or by calling (802) 985-4944 ext. 402. Application deadline is February 15 and the Team will be announced by May 15, 2012.
