Maine Breeder’s Cup Sponsors TMH Foal Photo Contest

September 23, 2022


The Morgan Horse is pleased to announce that the Maine Morgan Breeder’s Cup is now the generous sponsor of the magazine’s “Amazing Morgan Foal Photo Contest.” The organization has made a five-year commitment to sponsor the contest.

The photo contest, including pictures by amateur photographers of adorable Morgan babies, is a popular feature for readers. The photos are published in the magazine and posted on Facebook for the “People’s Choice” voting. 

“When we were approached by George Liberty and Adriana Day on behalf of the Breeder’s Cup, we agreed this would enhance the popularity of the contest, encourage voting for favorites, and provide funding to send prizes to the winners,” editor Stephen Kinney said. The photos are judged on artistic impression and breed character, along with the online voting.

“One of our goals is breed promotion,” Adriana said. “This was a great opportunity to promote the Morgan, but also encourage the breeding of foals. We look forward to holding a live event for the Maine Morgan Breeders Cup and to see it grow in size and prestige. This is a step in that direction that felt right for us.”

The entire group of Morgan foal photos will post to the magazine’s Facebook page by October 1 with voting lasting approximately 30 days. A “like” constitutes a vote. Results will be published in the November-December issue of The Morgan Horse.

AMHA says thank you to the Maine Morgan Breeder’s Cup organizers.
