In Weybridge, Vermont the University of Vermont maintains the historic Morgan Horse Farm, where for more than a century breeders and trainers have been keeping the prized Morgan bloodline alive. Renowned for their noble spirit, feats of strength, and gentle disposition, the Morgan has emerged as one of the preeminent American breeds.

A short film on the farm is available here. Cinematography, sound recording, and editing by Brett Simison. Music by Nate Gusakov. The track "Abigail's Tune" is available on his new album Running Clear. Visit him at

Many thanks to Steve Davis, Nicole Grainger, and the staff and volunteers of the farm for their time and assistance with this project.
