All Morgan horses today can trace their lineage back to a single stallion born in 1789 named Justin Morgan, after his owner. Justin Morgan was very strong for his size, a trait that would become valued in the breed that would be named for him.
Morgans have many uses, including racing, general riding, and even as cavalry horses during the Civil War, used by both the Northern and Southern armies.
The Morgan is one of the oldest horse breeds originating in the United States, and went on to influence many later American breeds. Morgans are powerful, muscular horses with compact forms, strong legs and large eyes. They are well-known for their gentle demeanor and trainability.
