Win a Morgan in Youth Essay Contest
RELEASE: May 22, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By the American Morgan Horse Association
The American Morgan Horse Association's "Team Morgan" is conducting an essay contest to promote the Morgan horse to equine-minded youth across the country and to raise funds for Team Morgan to travel to and host international equitation competitions. Copper Beech Morgans has graciously and generously offered the grand prize, a Morgan foal or young horse.
The contest is open to any youth 21 years of age or younger interested in owning a Morgan horse. Each contestant will submit a completed application packet, an essay, plus a signature form affirming the youth is able to care for the horse. Three finalists from each specified section of the country will be selected and notified to submit a DVD/video of themselves answering three interview questions. The cost of the application is $100. References will be contacted for each of the finalists. Winners will be expected to submit annual letters to the Youth Council detailing the progress of his or her horse. Winners also are responsible for transportation of the horse from the sponsor’s location to their home.
Applications are available from Sara Foy at firstname.lastname@example.org
or call (603) 642-4125 for more information. Submissions are due by July 31. Finalists will be notified by August 15, and interviews are tentatively planned to be completed by Sept 15. Winners will be announced at the 2008 Morgan Grand National & World Championship Horse Show in Oklahoma City in October.
About Copper Beech Morgans: Ann Hailey’s dedication to the Morgan horse was seeded more than 20 years ago. When making breeding plans, hours were spent on discussion and consultation. Keys to the breeding program include: Futurity Finesse; Savage Arms; The Master’s Touch daughter-CEN Can’t Touch This; GLB Bell Pepper, an HVK Bell Flaire son; War And Peace, a Century Free Spirit son; Ben’s Rhapsody, a Salem Command son and DBA Street Talk. Many Copper Beech Morgan horses have gone to the winner’s circle at the Morgan Grand National, including CBMF Ruling Class, CBMF Mozambique, CBMF Night Whispers, CBMF Arbitrage, CBMF Infatuation, CBMF Double Down, and CBMF Strike Zone to name just a few.
