Admission: Free More than 400 Morgan horses competing in a wide variety of athletic events including English & Western pleasure, pleasure driving, carriage driving, dressage and more. The horse: The breed began with a colt named Figure, who was born in 1789. In 1792, he was given to a man named Justin Morgan as a debt payment; the horse later came to be known by the name of his particular owner. All Morgan horses today trace their lineage back to the bay stallion, who won many races and pulling contests, and who also served as a parade mount, saddle and driving horse, and was also used to work the land. (Through one of his grandsons, the lineage of the Standardbred, American Saddlebred and Tennessee Walking Horse breeds also go back to Figure.)
