My name is Maggie Morgan.   I have two wonderful sons and two wonderful daughters-in-law.   I am now a proud grandmother of a beautiful baby girl!  I am hoping one day that she will join us on our adventures!      My father grew up in Teton Valley and that is where my heart is.  I am proud to say that there are mountains named after my family ( Beard ) in Teton Valley.  We spend a lot of time with the Spectacular Tetons in our view!

I have been an extreme horse lover my WHOLE life and have had a passion for riding for as long as I can remember. I was very young when I started riding.    I trained my first colt when I was 10 years old.   I can spend every day, ALL day  long in the saddle.  I am in love with all animals and nature.  Riding in the mountains is such a pleasure for me.  I appreciate the view each and every time!   Where most people would love to go on exotic vacations across the world, I am happiest on my horse on top of a mountain!

My passion for the GREAT outdoors has taken me many spectacular places. I have two wonderful  horses- Joey ( an American Paint Horse ) and Gracie -( A Quarter Horse) plus I have three other horses that I ride from time to time.  I am proud to say I am a posse member on the top trail source on Facebook, HTCAA.  Horse Trails and Camping Across America has over 50,000 members now and our pictures of our rides have become well known.   I have made many  connections in the horse world from this site.

I met my bestfriend Amy at the school we both work at in 2008.    We have been the best of friends since then and I couldn’t ask for a better riding partner. Amy had never really ridden a horse but started hanging out around the barn with me.   It didn’t take her long to learn about horses and she started riding with me.   Amy became an advanced rider rather quickly and can ride anywhere on her wonderful horse, so to have her as my riding buddy has been a real blessing.  Amy rides a fabulous American Paint horse named Tux and they have become an unstoppable pair!       OH the places we have seen!   OH the places we have yet to see!!!!!   The view never gets old and it is exciting every single time.   I am so grateful for the miles and miles we have spent together in this beautiful country.       The best way to view the world……is between the ears of a horse!!!

    The name Beard is familiar to me also…our land we owned was once owned by the Beard family in the late 1800’s and there is a beautiful state game area near my home in Michigan called Beards Hills. Not sure if any relation. I have always wanted to go west and ride but the distance has stopped me…I do get to go on a lot of horse trips with a group of gals but see nothing as spectacular as you share. Thank you for sharing these photos…it puts me there through your pictures. Debbie
