The AMHAY Horsemastership Program is designed to help you become a competent horseperson. The five successive levels of testing are designed to increase knowledge of the Morgan breed and general horsemanship while receiving recognition for hard work.
Horsemastership achievers must be under 22 years of age (as of December 1st) and all badge work must be completed with a registered Morgan. The first two levels may be approved by youth club leaders or other qualified horsepersons, but the top three levels must be approved by an official AMHA horsemastership examiner.

Badge work is challenging, but the rewards and benefits are well worth the effort. Pins, certificates, and special prizes are given to those who pass the first four levels of the program. Black Hawk and Justin Morgan achievers receive additional recognition in the form of a savings bond. Additionally, badge achievers are recognized as important award winners. Horsemastership badge announcements are published in the AMHA website and other AMHA related publications.
