Figment Farm breeds and shows Morgan horses for Sport, and we love the wide range of programs, shows, grants and educational opportunities AMHA provides to its members.  If you are a Morgan enthusiast, consider becoming a member and supporting this special breed.

We are very active in the Virginia-Carolinas Morgan Horse Club! Southern States Regional Championship, one of only eight AMHA regional shows, is put on by VCMHC. It offers a wide range of divisions, both main ring and sport horse. Jen does a lot of work with the Club’s newsletter, and volunteers on the show committee as well. We highly recommend joining our great club, even if you’re not in VA/SC or NC. After all, Figment Farm is in West Virginia (it’s a Virginia!). VCMHC is an AMHA Recognized Club.

Morgan Sport Resource
The Morgan Sport Resource is dedicated to the promotion and improvement of Morgans in sport. The principal goal of the MSR is to collect, summarize and report performance data for Morgans that are competing (or have competed) and it is a freely available resource for breeders, competitors and anyone interested in Morgans as a sport horse.

Our horses’ nutrition matters a lot to us, from performance horses, to broodmares, to babies, and Custom Equine Nutrition’s Vermont Blend Pro is the core of our feed program. The Morgan horse is typically a very easy keeper, so they likely can never consume the recommended value of a commercial grain in order to receive all of the vitamins and minerals they need. Figment Farm feeds a forage-based diet, utilizing a variety of sources depending on the nutritional needs of each horse. Vermont Blend Pro provides their vitamin and mineral balancer), and we also rely on Omega-E, and Emcelle. Our horses’ great health and shining coats are a reflection of their excellent feeding program. We highly recommend the nutrition tools and articles available on their website as well, and cannot say enough about the customer service.

BioStar has a wide range of whole food supplements, including gastric, allergy management, muscular and circulatory support, hydration, there is something for every horse. Figment Farm uses several of BioStar’s supplements for our various horses. The BioStar team is always willing to answer questions, and they offer a great blog with interesting information on nutrition and ingredient sourcing.

On a farm with varied nutritional needs across our herd, we love Triple Crown’s excellent forage selection – we use them all, as well as Triple Crown Senior Gold.
