The American Morgan Horse Association Young Adult Alliance (YAA), a group of 18-40 year old amateur and professionals working together to strengthen the Morgan breed, announced today that Joshua Noble of Rowley, Massachusetts, has been awarded the inaugural YAA judging scholarship. The first Professional Development Project created by this passionate group, the $1,500 scholarship is awarded to one individual aged 21-40, professional or amateur, who is interested in attaining their Morgan R judging card."We created this scholarship to encourage young adults to enter the Morgan judging pool, we see it as a way to provide financial support to young adults who endeavor to give back to the Morgan breed through judging," said YAA Professional Development Committee Chair Abbie Trexler. "We received wonderful applications in this first year, and the competition for the scholarship was very competitive. The winner, Joshua Noble, holds a Master's Degree from Cambridge College and works as a special education teacher and liaison at a local high school, and he also owns and operates his family's Burkland Farm. He received a wonderful letter of recommendation from 'R' Morgan Judge, Chris Cassenti. Noble's application essay was what stood out the most, however, and expressed his sincere desire to continue his education through judging school and to give back to the breed through his contributions to the judging pool."Applications for the 2015 YAA Judging School Scholarship will be accepted through August 1, 2015.

YAA Co-Chair Steven Handy, along with YAA Executive Committee Member Amanda Hill and YAA Co-Advisor Sara Foy, presented Noble with the scholarship on October 5. -

Culver McLean and Sarde's Silhouette enjoyed a perfect fall day of trail riding at beautiful Goddard Park in Warwick, Rhode Island.  Culver, a champion in the hunter division since she wore pigtails, says Silhouette is "super brave" over fences and awesome on the trail, making her the perfect Morgan pal.  In addition to being a talented horsewoman, Culver is an enterprising entrepreneur as the head of her company "2Horse Concoctions", which features natural products for outdoor people.  Check out these great naturals on Facebook and watch for Culver flying high over fences next season! 

Happy Trails!

Tips on printing your membership card:

Printing from a Mac works perfectly. It doesn't try any fancy resizing; it outputs the file at the size specified.

  • In the popup Print Dialog, be sure to select the Scale option (instead of "Scale to Fit", the default) and set it to 25%.

Printing from Windows is more complex.

Members using Windows can take these steps:  

  1. Click the membership card link. 
  2. Select 'open' - the image appears in Windows photo viewer. 
  3. Select 'print -> print' from the menu. 
  4. On the right side of the print popup, select 'wallet.' 
  5. Un-check the 'fit picture to frame' checkbox. 
  6. Press the 'print' button.
