In the early Seventies, the very first of the now annual Grand National and World Championship Morgan Horse Shows was held in Michigan, then moved to Oklahoma City where one can see a thousand or so Morgans showing in competition each year for varied world honors and world titles. From early days, the Morgan horse shows offered both English and Western classes, plus driving. All over the country one can find Morgan shows for just Morgans and a huge number of competitions offering at least some classes for this popular breed. The AMHA gives program points too , for wins at all breed events.

Morgan horse shows include varied disciplines for this most versatile of horses , from pleasure to jumping , cutting and of course endurance; from stock horse classes to combined and carriage driving. This breed was the first to represent America in the World Pairs driving even! There are many local shows, even state events, but every year the AMHA selects a Morgan horse shows from each geographical area of the country as a Regional championship, where such titles are won along with being able to later show at the Grand National World Championship.

Body build of the Morgan is extremely well-suited, to pull uphill, downhill, on the level, around obstacles or to make sharp turns. Morgans also exhibit a nicely carried neck and great style over all, and have represented the United States three times in Olympic or international carriage pairs and in Canada where they offer singles. In the show rings Mogans pretty much dominate Carriage Pleasure classes.

Combined Driving - Morgans are fairly dominate in this sport as they combine all the physical and mental characteristics to do so. Itis a joy to watch them compete!

Classic Pleasure ( saddle or driving) - for amateurs only
A winning Morgan must work with very light contact on the bit, yet be totally responsive to rider or driver, and exhibit perfect manners. Of course displaying good style and athletic ability , with good conformation is also key.

Again, by body build , soundness, endurance and temperament, the Morgan is well suited for the demands of Dressage. Knowing this full well, the American Morgan Horse Association even organized a Morgan Dressage Association.

English or Western Pleasure & Pleasure Driving
Morgans do quite well in these classes, be it at an Open show or a breed show. They clearly exhibit themselves as a real pleasure in the ring with their willingness, let alone individual ability. In Western, the Morgan display a walk and jogging trot that exhibits the ability to cover miles of distance, and a slow loping canter.

Hunter and Hunter Pleasure
A good Morgan Hunter displays calmness, as well as ability, with even strides, and a good flow over the jumps. A continuous canter is preferred with as unvaried pace as possible. In Hunt pleasure, there are of course no jumps, but the winners have the traditional Morgan type manners, and in these classes a lower motion that covers ground smoothly.

Park ( saddle or harness)
Whether under saddle or in harness, the Park Morgan displays greater animation and energy, with a balanced elegance in movement. Vitality is a must, yet precision is also needed.

Trail Classes in Shows
Morgans are not only expected to be both calm and responsive accomplishing all the obstacles, but the best also display intelligence and gage each obstacle for themselves, although being totally responsive to the rider.

Western Working classes
The Morgan horse was there, In the early days of survival in the Western United States, and daily performed all necessary tasks, of any good using ranch horse. Those same skills remain present in the breed today, exhibited in classes including : Cutting, Reining, Working Cow, Ranch horse classes and Team Penning. Many old time ranches believed in the superiority and dependability as well as the soundness of the Morgan and either prized the blood, or used Morgans only.

In Hand Classes
Morgan breed shows most always offer such classes, and the horses are judged on proper conformation to type, and good ability in proper motion when moving as they are being led. A show bridle or halter is used, with one person leading, and another following the horse ( header and trailer)!
