This website has a section about the horse show at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri. It's interesting to see what breeds of horses were popular then, and how they were presented. This comment about the Morgan horse class caught my eye: "There were all different
shapes, sizes, and colors of Morgans present at the fair. Some fair
exhibitors preferred the neat and trappy step. Others preferred
Morgans having the trot more straddled out
like an old fashioned Wilkes trotter. Short legs and long legs were jumbled
together and it created confusion in the show ring." I like seeing the photos of the breeds in times past - often they change quite a bit over the decades, sometimes they change very little. Other breeds featured included Roadsters and German Coach Horses. Take a look!
