About Morgan

Since the age of three, I have spent as much time as possible with horses. It took me about ten years to discover the hunter/jumper world, but since then, I haven't looked back. And now, I get to do what I love for a living. Every day, I look forward to challenging myself, my horses and my students, both mentally and physically. To me, this sport is about deciphering what tools horses and riders need at each point in their development and using creative, customized means to develop these tools and strengthen the connection between horse and rider. 

Over the last 30 years, I have had the privilege of working with many talented horse men and women. I've also had the opportunity to work in The Netherlands for several years. Through my experiences, I've learned a tremendous amount and developed a wealth of resources.

I strive to continuously educate myself.  ​I am honored to have the opportunity to share my skills and help people connect with their horses through safe, fun, and confidence-building exercises and instruction. I like to be involved in every aspect of horse care and training, and I take my commitment to the horses I ride and train very seriously. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are interested in joining the MCE team.
