The Equestrian Center is home to Cabot Morgans, a nationally-known Morgan breeding operation. The Morgan horse is the first true Registered American breed based on bloodlines. Born in 1789, Justin Morgan, originally known as “Figure”, was the founding sire of the Morgan breed. Based in Vermont, Justin Morgan passed along to his offspring a distinct type or breed of horse unique to America. Morgans are reliable, loyal and known for versatility.
