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!


Lester Welch of Ryegate Morgans was Honored at the AMHA Convention with the 2021 Breeders Hall of Fame Award.

We can't think of a more fitting Recipient, given all that Lester contributed to the Lippitt and Morgan World.
