R.A. (Ron) Morris
My goal is to teach genuine horsemanship, sportsmanship, responsibility, confidence and compassion
And raise and train horses to reach their potential whether it be in the show pen or on the trail.
With over forty years in the saddle training, riding and showing;
More students than I can count;
And a chance to celebrate successes big and small from the round pen to the national level show pen,
the popular ten day challenge on social media (post a picture with no explanation) inspired a new format for the archive and show pages.
So, you’ll see Stock Horses (AQHA, APHA, PtHA, PHBA, ABRA and ApHC) that have passed through my pastures and barns (trained, coached, shown, bred, raised or sold) and include:
- World Show Reserve Champions and Top Five Competitors
- Regional, Color Breed Congress and Stock Shows - Winners, Reserves, Top Fives and Top Tens
- Register of Merit Earners
- Grand & Reserve Champions
- Futurity Winners and Money Earners
- Incentive Fund and Breeder's Trust Money Earners
- State Year End High Point Award Winners
- Show High Points
- Working Horses
- 4-H Horses and Saddle Winners
- Over 20 years breeding AQHA, APHA, PHBA and ApHC horses
- And more…….
I'm proud to say that over half of the photos on this site are horses that have been home bred and raised.
Sometimes the biggest successes are achieved at home in the practice pen or are seen in the methodical daily, weekly, monthly and continuing training process.
Training, coaching and showing is in my blood. Stay tuned for more……
