Brief History

Weybridge was chartered by New Hampshire in 1761 and organized in 1789. Colonel Joseph Battell began breeding Morgans on his farm in Weybridge, VT in the late 1870s. His intense interest in preserving and promoting America's first breed of horse saved the Morgan from extinction. Battell spent years studying and tracing Morgan pedigrees, resulting in the publication of the first volume of the Morgan Horse Register in 1894. In 1907 he gave his farm to the U.S. Government.  [1]  [2]
