Weathermont Ethan, a Lippitt Morgan, is the definition of a versatile Morgan, winning over 300 trophies and ribbons in dressage, jumping, carriage driving, road hack, saddle seat and in-hand.
Lippitt Morgans are distinguishable because they possess the original build and athletic ability of Justin Morgan (Figure), the original sire of the Morgan breed. Lippitts have no recent out-crosses to other breeds and maintain the highest percentage of the original bloodlines.
Owners Wes and Joy Smith of Weathermont Farms, Springfield, VT and rider, granddaughter Abigail Bemis, have shown Ethan to a record that includes 1st and 2nd place wins in almost every division at prestigious Morgan shows such as Lippitt Country Show, Vermont Morgan Heritage Days, Connecticut Morgan Horse Show, and Vermont Spring Classic. Ethan is also in demand as a sire, perpetuating the ideal looks and disposition of the "Vermont Morgan" and America's first horse breed.
