AMHA Young Person Of The Year: Amanda Hill

Amanda Hill has had a lifetime involvement with the Morgan breed as she started showing at an early age. Amanda is a third generation Morgan enthusiast, and her family owns and operates a small breeding farm, Lands End Farm LLC in Amesbury, Massachusetts. 

Amanda is a founding member of the AMHA Young Adult Alliance. During her tenure, the group championed involvement from young adults, amateurs, and professionals to strengthen the Morgan breed. She led a series of horse show events, including a Bull Riding Calcutta and Family Feud, that raised money for the group and encouraged competitive fun at horse shows. Amanda was also instrumental in the formation of the Young Adult Alliance judging school scholarship, which has awarded more than $10,000 in scholarships helping young adults obtain their judging cards. 

In addition to her work with the AMHA Young Adult Alliance, Amanda is an active member of the New England Morgan Horse Association, serving on its board and is also a member of the New England Regional Morgan Horse Show Committee. She has been co-chair of the New England Winter Weekend for many years and is also responsible for all of the parties and events at the New England Regional Horse Show. 

Amanda and her family are also committed to bettering the Morgan breed with their small breeding operation, Lands End Farm, which produces one or two foals per year. She has seen great success in the show ring as well as capturing the 2018 World Junior Classic Pleasure Driving Championship with Sarde's Crescendo. 
There is not much that Amanda has not done to help strengthen and give back to the Morgan breed, and she is a worthy recipient of the AMHA Young Person Of The Year Award.
