The Morgan Horse magazine is the breed journal of the American Morgan Horse Association. It focuses on being the “one source for everything Morgan.”

We welcome submissions for all sections of the magazine. Consider the following when directing queries to the publication team:

Columns:  Several columns run occasionally in The Morgan Horse. These include View From My Saddle (interesting stories about Morgans outside of competition arenas); View From The Ingate (stories inspired by the show ring or competition); Youth Scene (written by youth with youth as the intended audience); and Promoters. Submissions can come from readers, AMHA members or experts in their respective fields, should run 800 to 1,000 words and be accompanied by one or two pictures. Non-paying.

People We Remember: The Morgan Horse likes to remember people in our community, not with standard newspaper obituaries, but with remembrances of their involvement in the Morgan world. These should be submitted by friends or associates and run approximately 800 words and include one picture. Non-paying.

Features: The Morgan Horse is first and foremost feature driven. Our ongoing series include Legacy Mares, Significant Sires, History Lessons, Clinics, Family Tree (lesser known, but significant prefixes), Photo Essays, People and Farm Profiles and more. Keeping content horsemanship related is very important to us. Features tend to run 2,500 to 5,000 words. Freelance writers may query us at the email addresses above.

Show & Event Reporting is an important facet of preserving the official record of the Morgan breed. TMH covers approximately 45 Morgan shows and events a year. We have an existing team of writers and photographers around the country, but sometimes will be in need of reporters with a knowledge of disciplines involved at the event. Queries may be addressed to the email addresses above.

The Morgan Horse magazine reserves the right to accept or reject an article or suggestion based on need and/or content. The Morgan Horse also retains editorial control over all articles accepted for publication.

The Morgan Horse uses the Chicago Manual of Style as its style guide.
