Morgan rides and trains under the watchful eye of Vanessa Karlewicz, owner of The Stables at Mira Bella on Jessup Road in Warwick.

Morgan won her Championship as well as four other ribbons during a three-day meet against more than 80 other riders in her class.

Her horse, Luther, is part of and owned by The Stables at Mira Bella.

Morgan, a high honor student at Warwick High School, expects to continue riding through her undergraduate schooling and ultimately become a veterinarian.
