One of the earliest horse breeds developed in the USA is the Morgan horse. In the 19th century, these horses served for different purposes, from coach horses to cavalry horses during the American Civil War.
We must mention that Morgan horses have influenced other breeds, such as American Quarter Horse, the Standardbred, and Tennessee Walking Horse. The Morgan horses have an expressive face, large eyes, laid back shoulders, clean cut head, and a well-arched neck. They are compact and refined in build, with strong limbs.
The video footage beneath this text is a tribute to the “old” style Morgan and in comparison with the “newer” style Morgan he is more muscular and compact. Officially, there is one Breed Standard for Morgan type, depending on the discipline or bloodline of the individual horse.
The “newer” style Morgan is much more flashy and refined, so we would like to hear which one do you prefer more!
