American Morgan Horse Association/Team Morgan Essay Contest Winner Revealed
RELEASE: October 22, 2009
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By the American Morgan Horse Association
Congratulations to 12-year-old Katerina Barrett of Middletown, MD, who was announced October 17 as the 2009 American Morgan Horse Association (AMHA)/Team Morgan "Win a Morgan Horse" Contest winner. Barrett will soon meet her new Morgan horse, CBMF Phoenix (DBA Street Talk x Treble's Wild Memories), graciously donated by Ann Hailey of Copper Beech Morgan Horse Farm in New Albany, OH.
Barrett is a seventh grader who likes riding, playing soccer and the piano, and running. She takes lessons with Cathy Brittain Altomare of High Seas Stables, and although she has leased a Morgan for two years, she has never owned one. This year she was the Reserve Youth of the Year Champion at the Mid-A Morgan Horse Show. Barrett plans to baby sit and pet sit to earn money to buy treats and other goodies for Phoenix.
The AMHA/Team Morgan Win a Morgan Horse Contest raised funds for Team Morgan to travel to and host international equitation competitions. This year, the Team traveled to South Africa in March and hosted a competition in North Carolina in August.
AMHA would like to thank Ann Hailey for her dedication and support for this contest. She has agreed to donate another Morgan horse for a contest to be held in 2010. Any youth 21 years of age or younger is eligible. Watch for news in the spring on this next contest.
