You do not need to be a member of our club to participate in any of these virtual events and we encourage you to become involved and enjoy your horse.
Connecticut Morgan Horse Association members who have access to their horses should sign up for Morgan Time. The fee is $5 and you track the time spent with your horse from May through October. Morgan Time participants with the most hours receive a year-end award and there are cumulative awards when you reach milestones.
We will be announcing other programs throughout the year. Connecticut Morgan Horse Association has served our members for over 60 years and are pleased to bring these new events to our members and other equestrians. Visit ctmorgans.org or our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information.
