Origins

The breed was developed in the early 20th century when L.L. Dorsey decided to breed a carriage horse for the US and crossed an Arabian stallion to a Morgan mare. This cross produced a breathtaking stallion with a coat of gold and amazing trotting speed.

By the 1920′s the term Morab had been coined to describe this unique cross of breeds and their popularity grew.
