CMHA Mission Statement:
Covering the whole of Canada, the CMHA was first formed in 1960 and incorporated under the Live Stock Pedigree Act in 1968. The prime function of the association is to administer the registration of the purebred Canadian Morgan and oversee the registration of the Part Morgan horse. Canadian Livestock Records Corp., Ottawa, Ontario, maintains the records for the association, while a board of directors, which includes an elected director from each zone, manages the association.
Our mission is to further the growth and visibility of the Saddle Seat discipline on National and International levels and to increase participation from multiple breeds and to partner with recognized Breed Associations.
The E.F.C formerly the Canadian Morgan Horse Foundation, is the first charitable organization devoted to equines, to be registered by Revenue Canada. This registration is given to the Foundation because our purposes are charitable in every sense. Our programs are unbiased as to breed of horse or areas of the country. All work is carried out by volunteers across the land.
THE AMERICAN MORGAN HORSE ASSOC.
The American Morgan Horse Association Inc. exists to preserve, promote, perpetuate the Morgan horse. Founded in 1909, the Morgan Horse Club (as it was then called) was formed to support the Morgan breed. The club grew and evolved and in 1971 underwent a reorganization and was renamed the American Morgan Horse Association to reflect its increasing responsibilities. The newly formed association offices were in Hamilton, New York, for a number of years with brief moves to both New Hartford and Westmoreland, New York. In 1988, the Association established its headquarters in Shelburne, Vermont.
Canadian Livestock Records Corporation is the national pedigree service for purebred and non-purebred livestock in Canada.
We are a private non-profit organization that has been serving the Canadian livestock industry continuously since 1905.
