The American Morgan Horse Association Young Adult Alliance (YAA), a group of 18-40 year old amateur and professionals working together to strengthen the Morgan breed, announced today that Joshua Noble of Rowley, Massachusetts, has been awarded the inaugural YAA judging scholarship. The first Professional Development Project created by this passionate group, the $1,500 scholarship is awarded to one individual aged 21-40, professional or amateur, who is interested in attaining their Morgan R judging card."We created this scholarship to encourage young adults to enter the Morgan judging pool, we see it as a way to provide financial support to young adults who endeavor to give back to the Morgan breed through judging," said YAA Professional Development Committee Chair Abbie Trexler. "We received wonderful applications in this first year, and the competition for the scholarship was very competitive. The winner, Joshua Noble, holds a Master's Degree from Cambridge College and works as a special education teacher and liaison at a local high school, and he also owns and operates his family's Burkland Farm. He received a wonderful letter of recommendation from 'R' Morgan Judge, Chris Cassenti. Noble's application essay was what stood out the most, however, and expressed his sincere desire to continue his education through judging school and to give back to the breed through his contributions to the judging pool."Applications for the 2015 YAA Judging School Scholarship will be accepted through August 1, 2015.

YAA Co-Chair Steven Handy, along with YAA Executive Committee Member Amanda Hill and YAA Co-Advisor Sara Foy, presented Noble with the scholarship on October 5. -

Ellen Atkinson and Pondview Aurora recently enjoyed a beach ride at Salisbury Beach to benefit the MSPCA. Joined by many of their pals from Chrislar Farm, Ellen and Aurora make us all want to saddle up and head to the beach.

Beautiful Aurora is owned by Chrislar Farm and Ellen has long been known as one of Chrislar's multi-talented "kids (actually with her recent diploma from Endicott College she is an official "adult") and it has been fun to watch her "grow up" in the Morgan world. From a leadliner to multi-titled champ, Ellen is as taltented an artist as she is a horsewoman...and of course she is a perfect mentor for all the aspiring youngsters who flock to Chrislar for an exciting Morgan experience!

Ellen and Aurora...Morgan versatility at its best!

Happy Trails!
