"I've always had a passion for horses and my mom never had to drag me to the barn because I would always willingly go."
Morgan inherited the "horse girl" gene from her mom Mary. She started riding before she could walk, and never got out of the saddle. She first starting riding with her trainer Sarah Shraiberg at Avalon Meadows Equestrian Center in Otisfield, Maine when she was 9 years old. Two and a half years ago, Sarah told Mary about a yearling for sale, who became Morgan's first horse of her very own. Poseidon would go on to make Morgan not only the rider she is today, but carved her into the person she has become as well.
"I never thought we would get so far in the time we did. I also never knew that he would be the horse that made me laugh harder than I have ever before, or be the best friend I always wanted in a horse."
Unfortunately, Poseidon passed away this spring after a tragic accident. The horses at Avalon, namely "Prada" has helped to heal Morgan's heartbreak. This summer, we celebrated her healing with a fairytale photoshoot for Morgan.
