• Open to all pure Lippitts registered with AMHA & its affiliates

• Must be a current 2023 photo

• Photos may only be submitted by the owner of the horse

• Submit 4 photos per horse - Both sides, front and back with horse standing square (do not stretch out). Side

view photos sould be taken directly from the side (please see the example above of an illustration of Justin

Morgan done by Barby Carr to determine the correct angle you should be using). Choose your best and be sure

to have a helper hold the horse as you take the photos.

• One side view photo will be placed in its appropriate class on the LMBA Facebook page (this step will be done

for you). Be sure to visit the LMBA Facebook page to follow each class’s entries and see your competition! Judges

will be viewing all four angles of each horse, so don’t worry that there is only one photo showing up online!

• Age should be determined based on horse’s age day of the show.

How to enter:

Send photos individually and include the following info:

AMHA (or affiliate) registration # and horse’s name, photographer’s name, owner’s name

Did You Know?

The LMBA Registry Database has been updated to reflect all Lippitts registered with AMHA and its' affiliates through the end of November 2021. Lippitts that have been reported as deceased (between 2004-2021) have also been noted as such.

Excluding any horses that would be 30 yrs or older(or noted as deceased) leaves us with approximately 1,780 living full Lippitts.

Excluding all geldings, mares and stallions older than 25 and younger than 2 years reduces the # down to just over 1,000 full Lippitt Morgans of breeding age!


Congratulations to the Lippitt Morgan Stallion
