Youth Wins "Cash" in Essay Contest

SHELBURNE, VT — Christie Little, age nine, of Harrington, Delaware, is the winner of the Morgan horse, "Cash," or CBMF Walk The Line, as part of an essay contest sponsored by the American Morgan Horse Association and Team Morgan.

Cash was generously donated to the contest by Ann Hailey of Copper Beech Morgans in New Albany, Ohio, which promoted the Morgan breed and raised funds for Team Morgan to travel to and host international equitation competitions.

A fourth grader, Little has worked with her family's Morgan horses, but this is the first one she will own on her own. She hopes to someday show Cash in the Morgan show ring, and plans to learn braiding, help with extra chores, and walk dogs to earn extra money to pay for her horse hobby. You can see Christie's trip to pick up her new horse at the bottom of the article.

AMHA graciously thanks Ann Hailey for her dedication and support for this contest. Hailey has announced she is donating another Copper Beech Morgan horse as part of 2009's AMHA/Team Morgan contest. Any youth 21 years of age or younger is eligible. For more information on how you can win a Morgan horse, contact Christina Koliander at (802) 985-4944 ext. 17.
