North Central Morgan Association

Promoting the Morgan Horse

    • The North Central Morgan Association is a club dedicated to the Morgan horse through sponsorship and promotion of private, public and social activities fostering good horsemanship, pride in ownership and enjoyment of Morgan horses.

      Our club participates in Morgan breed horse shows, horse fairs, trail rides, eventing, rodeos and other horse-related events.  Members have opportunities to Breed Promotion, High Point, Futurity and Youth Programs, Awards, Resource Directory and an E-Newsletter!  

      We also offer our own AMHA rated horse show, the North Star Morgan Americana!

      We are based in Minneapolis & St. Paul while representing members from Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa. We are widely recognized throughout the region and have won numerous awards from the American Morgan Horse Association as an AMHA Club of the Year and Newsletter of the Year!
