Come learn about the Vermont State Animal, America’s first breed of horse – the Morgan Horse.
Located in scenic Weybridge, just 2.5 miles from downtown Middlebury, is a stately pastoral scene from a grandiose era gone-by. This working horse farm has been a breeding and training facility for Morgan Horses since its construction in 1878. As a university owned non-profit, the UVM MHF stewards continuation of the breed and education about this important Vermont State Animal.
Whether horse enthusiasts, history buffs, or just excited to see the beauty of the Vermont countryside; this attraction has something to offer everyone. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm has guided tours, a video presentation, and gift shop. Enjoy some of the finest examples of this breed within our herd of 40-60 registered Morgans, whose origins come from a single stallion “Figure,” immortalized on the grounds by life-size bronze statue.
