The Morgan is one of the first horse breeds developed in the United States.
Tracing back to Figure, the breed excels in many disciplines, and is known for its versatility.
The Morgan is compact and refined in build, with strong limbs, an expressive face, large eyes, well-defined withers, laid back shoulders and a well arched neck.
There is officially one Breed Standard for Morgan type regardless of the discipline or bloodline of the individual horse.
The Morgan has influenced several other breeds, including the Standardbred, Tennessee Walker, American Quarter Horse, and the American Saddlebred.
Nearly 90% of Saddlebred horses today have Morgan blood.
