Location(s):
The Morgan horse is one of the earliest horse breeds developed in the United States. All Morgans trace back to a single foundation sire, a stallion named Figure, who was born in West Springfield, Massachusetts in 1789. In 1792, he was given to a man named Justin Morgan as a debt payment. The horse later came to be identified by the name of this particular owner, and “the Justin Morgan horse” evolved into the name of the breed. Designated as the official state horse of Massachusetts in 1970, Morgans are considered one of America’s first native breeds.
