Morgans Win Across the Country
April 25th, 2016
Congratulations to these two Morgan high-point award winners!
KF Baran’s Salutation (pictured left) and rider/owner Gail Thompson were the Morgan High Point Award winners at the SouthEast USA Fundraiser Endurance ride in January. Three hundred horses were expected to be in this event at the Broxton Bridge Plantation in South Carolina. KF Baran’s Salutation is a 2003 gelding by Alqamar Aldebaran and out of Havenhill Magnolia. Gail also rode her 2005 mare KF Baran’s Melody, who is sired by KF Baran’s Salutation, in this event.
Katnandu Zealous and driver Sandra Pascale were the Morgan High Point Award winners at the Grand Oaks Classic in February. Katnandu (Smoke Signal x Gradells UVM Connection) is a 2009 mare owned by Laureen Oliver. Another Morgan that competed in this event was HPF Wyoming Firestorm (Bethesda Horus x Mey-Lena's Wild Romance). Congratulations to Morgan horses!
The AMHA High Scoring Morgan Awards recognize the highest scoring Morgan in individual open competitions and approved trail rides, regardless of the division. Points from classes or rides open to all breeds may count toward this award. Approved trail rides include those sanctioned by national trail ride associations (such as AERC, ECTRA and NATRC), or those approved by the American Morgan Horse Association.
