The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc.


The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the Lippitt Morgan Horse. We register, DNA, and track all Lippitts. The Lippitt Morgan Horse is recognized as a "rare living antique" coming from a small gene pool. Today it has been estimated that there are fewer than 2000 living Lippitts of which there are even fewer breedable mares. This rare Morgan family is truly endangered and teeters on the brink of extinction. The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc. will maintain an aggressive presence in the eye of the public via exhibitions, the use of the internet, and providing assistance in rescues as well as providing educational materials upon request.

Our Mission

The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc. will provide registry services via genetic testing, and maintain a record of Lippitts. We are a staunch advocate in the preservation and protection of the Lippitt Morgan horse.

The Lippitt Morgan Horse is Defined By Its DNA

A Lippitt Morgan horse is identified as a Lippitt Morgan horse by its DNA, NOT by registration with a given registry. The advantage of a registry's recognition is that an official source has undertaken a DNA evaluation and declared the horse to be a breed according to the DNA evidence, and further, that the horse's parentage is Sire "A" and Dam "X." This information assists a breeder in making choices for preservation of bloodlines, type, desired breed characteristics and breed identity.
Dr. Gus Cothran,(Clinical Professor, Texas A & M University, Animal Genetics Laboratory), and UC Davis both can look at a horse's DNA report and determine whether that horse is a Morgan, or a Thoroughbred etc.
By registering your Lippitt Morgan with The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc., you have the advantage of:
Knowing that the Lippitt Morgan is the ONLY strain within the Morgan breed set apart by its own unique DNA definition due to set parameters (25 Foundation Stock). Through its DNA signature, the Lippitt Morgan horse stands on its own apart from ALL other Morgans.
No other Morgan family can claim the ability to define itself by an established DNA identity.

Why You Need to Provide Your Lippitt DNA Markers to TLMHR, Inc.

There is a fair number of what is termed "lost Lippitts" and the number seems to be increasing. TLMHR, Inc. is very interested in helping to identify as well as make the quest of discovery cost efficient to all involved parties with the end result being the return of said lost Lippitt(s) back into our Lippitt family.  In order to attain this endeavor we need the co-operation of all Lippitt owners.  We would like/need you to donate your Lippitt DNA Marker reports from the AMHA (the cost to you is $15) plus $5 to enter it into our data base with Texas A & M.   You could also pull hair for a DNA marker report at a cost of $25. TLMHR, Inc. will then be able to run the DNA test at cost by the owner, across our data base. The Lippitt Morgan Horse Registry, Inc. is dedicated to preserving, promoting, protecting and perpetuating the Lippitt because the Lippitt is ENDANGERED.
We also do not punish for registering older horses.
