About the Foundation Morgan Horse

In an effort to preserve the Morgan Horse's original bloodlines, the term "Foundation Morgan" came about.

Foundation Morgan horses must meet the following criteria:

• The sire line must trace to Justin Morgan (very top line of pedigree)
The horse must not have any Saddlebred outcrosses after 1930*
Offspring are catagorized as 'foundation' as long as both parents qualify

*No saddlebred after 1930 means no horse foaled after 1930 with a saddlebred
parent. The one exception is the registered offspring of the saddlebred
mare Ladelle. She had foals, including full siblings, both before and
after the 1930 date that were registered as Morgans. So, the decision was
made to allow those from Ladelle as "Foundation".
