Tami Johnson started this petition to Members of the American Morgan Horse Association

The American Morgan Horse Association is the organizational body that supports and promotes one of America's oldest pieces of living history: The Morgan Horse.

A current AMHA Director, Ms. Vicki Bennett, in stark contrast to the intention of the board member positions to preserve, protect and manage the association and the breed registry, is suing her fellow board members regarding mismanagement of funds between the AMHECT (charitable organization separate from the AMHA) and AMHA, specifically a large amount which currently sits in the AMHECT trust fund, so is therefore not missing, as Bennett is accusing.

Her lawsuit is not only depleting funds from the AMHA, but may discourage future members from stepping up for Board positions, leaving our association without a responsible team to move forward.

Below are helpful links for further information. If you are a lover and supporter of the Morgan Horse, and a current member in good standing of the American Morgan Horse Association, please consider signing this petition to tell Ms. Bennett that her baseless lawsuit does not represent you as a member.

PLEASE NOTE: Besides signing this petition, the most important action you can take as an AMHA member is to vote for Kelly Kraegel, who is running against Vicki Bennett in our upcoming election in January. (Read more about Kelly's lifelong love affair with the Morgan horse here.) If you have already cast your vote for Vicki, but wish to change it, you may vote again. Whichever vote is cast last is the one that counts. Go here to download a printable proxy vote to give to a friend attending the UPHA convention in Lexington, KY on January 22-25, 2020. If you do not know someone attending, please mail your proxy to Tami Johnson, Masterworks Creative LLC, 6270 NE 49th St., Silver Springs, FL 34488 and I will make sure your proxy is turned in.
