The first documented American breed, the Morgan horse owes its lineage to the original stud Justin Morgan. The Morgan blood has been a contributor to other North American breeds like the Saddlebred, Standardbred and the Tennessee Walking horse.

Originating from the flagship stud Justin Morgan the ancestory of the Morgan breed beyond that is a mystery. Although it is speculated that there is Thoroughbred blood while others claim his sire was a Fresian Stallion.

A third theory still speculates that he is a blend of Welsh Cob, Thoroughbred and Arabian.

A small, thick dark bay Justin Morgan was two years old in 1793 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. His original owner Robert Evans found that this tough little horse could run faster and pull more than any of the local horses.
