DANIEL LAMBERT
(Ethan Allen x Fanny Cook) Foaled in 1858
The Lamberts are the oldest family existing today in the Morgan Breed.

HISTORICAL DESCRIPTION OF DANIEL LAMBERT
Written in 1911 by Charles H. Willamson VT under oath.

I remember Daniel Lambert very well;—saw him when he died; he would stand about 15 hands, and he looked quite big when harnessed; would weigh about 1000,—would have to be pretty fat to weigh much more than that; he had fine style and beauty and was a square trotter; he founded a distinct family that would run all the way from 14.1 to 15 hands; they were horses of substance and you would think they were all trotters; were as good gaitered as you could pick out; I don’t know that I ever saw a pacer of the old Black Hawk breed; I don’t remember any Morgan horses that were pacers, they were all trotters

Speaking of all these horses, their enduring road qualities were good; you never could drive them so far in one day but what you could get them back the next; the Lamberts have shown at fairs all through the Valley, and always have carried off the blue ribbon.

My Quietude Seneca Rocks, bred by Susan and Shannon Hanley, ridden and trained by Elaine Hayes, is the United States Equestrian Federation Region 10 Morgan Dressage Champion at training level, and 4th place at First Level. Quite an accomplishment for this six-year-old, and he just keeps getting better! He carries the Quietude name with pride, and is going into the double bridle and working on flying changes now. Seneca was chosen by Ruth Shaw long before he was foaled.

QUIETUDE DANTE (Quietude Barcelona x Quietude Marietta)
Dante talking to his buddy Cole
"When Ellen bought Dante, she knew he would be a good horse.  She didn’t know he would be a dream horse; but she knows it now.  He’s a perfect match.  It takes time to build a horse/human relationship, but when everything starts to fall in place, it is a beautiful thing." Dante is perfect—just perfect for Ellen—we have so much fun on our rides. And he’s awfully cute. Julie Daley OH

I was competing at an ACTHA in VA. You had to walk or trot to the log, go over, turn around and either walk or jump over the log.

QUIETUDE CASSIDY (Quietude Tanager x Quietude Honor Bright)

"SO....we had our first "adventure" out on the trail together....funny thing was....which I kind of had to keep on "my radar'....was the Tenn Walker was in front....the guy (who really wasn't so "horse aware") walking was walking behind the Tenn Walker, but in front of me with Cassidy....and it was a bit muddy....so he was having to "jump around" from one side of the trail to the other to avoid the mud.....which was probably not anything that Cassidy had ever seen before....but she never "questioned" the "crazy walking human"...and she didn't run up on him....she got a bit "quicker" (it was WELL passed her feeding time) walking heading back to the barn....but I asked her nicely to slow down....especially to keep her space from the walking guy....which she did very softly and easily when I asked. She was careful and looked and paid attention to the terrain....walked thru the water over trees, around trees, etc.......really did awesome. So proud of her....and getting that under our belt!!
Got a LOT under our belt this week."

QUIETUDE DARIUS
(Quietude Indian Summer x Quietude Honor Bright)

Adored, and trusted with little Josephpine, by Penny Busher.
UPDATE
I wanted to tell you of recent events…..this last week, I asked a friend who drives and trains Morgans to help me with taking two and a half year old ‘Miss Josephine’ for a cart ride with Darius pulling the cart!! It was awesome! We were out about 25 to 30 minute ! I sat in tht seat next to Tim and Jo sat on my lap. She smiled and laughed, asked questions and thoroughly was taking in the whole experience!!
Hi Susan! I hope that this reaches you and that all is well with you and Shannon. I have bought a beautiful (Amish built) cart for him with a full handmade harness! Darius is confident and happy….he has learned many new skills and is a confident Morgan Horse in both riding and driving. I hope and pray that this message reaches you so that you know of his health, training and good fortune! You and Shannon gave me the opportunity to make my childhood dream of having a horse of my own come true. I thank you both, from the bottom of my grateful heart! My love to you both, Penny

QUIETUDE PENNYWHISTLE
(Jubilee Kingdom x Quietude Madrid)


Hello! I wanted to write a note to let you know how Pennywhistle is . Please note that my husband and I are not very familiar with horses- this is purely Emily's obsession, and we support her wholeheartedly! She is 11 and rides and competes with Penny. She's a lovely pony who loves to jump and especially loves all the love, kisses and carrots she gets. Emily certainly has enjoyed Penny and so have we.
Thanks, Kristy Rowntree.

QUIETUDE TAMBOURINE
(Quietude Rio de Oro x Quietude Brittany)

COLORADO

Tambourine jumped with Carrie Mcmullen up.
Anne was riding Tambourine and a friend was riding Anne's horse in Chatfield State Park near Littleton, Colorado. The friend had never ridden Tambourine before and Anne asked her if she wanted to ride her and take her over a small jump. Tambourine LOVES to jump and Anne hasn't done that before, so the friend said, sure, I'll take her over a small jump.
Anne had her old cellphone and just aimed it at the tree and pushed the button several times, hoping to capture a good picture....She is not a photographer, but she did capture Tambourine flying! The friend wasn't in the "proper" position as she didn't expect her to jump so high!

CRITERION FOUNDATION SIRE FOR THE CONTEMPORARY LAMBERT MORGAN FAMILY
HEWING TO THE LINE

"Criterion reminded one hauntingly of the ancient woodcuts of his famous ancestors, old Justin and Sherman in particular. His bearing was regal, confidant, commanding. His form was muscular, smoothly-rounded, each part in perfectly-balanced proportion. When in motion he was arresting, exhibiting spectacular extension at the trot, displaying daunting power as he drove forward off his hocks, mesmerizing onlookers as he floated over the ground."

THE ANCIENT LOOK LIVES ON

THE ORIGIN OF THE LAMBERT FAMILY

During the 1800's the
Lambert family was the most respected, well known and admired Morgan family in existence. During the 1900's it would have disappeared but for J.C. Brunk who rescued it from extinction. Then came Francis Bryant who continued Mr. Brunk's Lambert breeding program. Now, the Lambert family represents a history of some hundred years of diligent breeding by Brunk, Bryant and the Hanleys."
Brenda Tippin noted Morgan Historian.

JUBILEE KING
JUBILEE KING needs no introduction as he is noted throughout the country, having been used at stud in the West for so many years and being the sire of so many "pretty" Morgans, most of them with flaxen mane and tail. KING knew he was on exibition and when led out by Mr. Wyma n took his place on the bank overlooking the rivers and almost said "Here I am." Next came SPRINGFIELD, who was raised from a colt by Mrs. Bryant. He is sired by Lippitt Sam by Ashbrook and out of Paragraph. He is a grandson of Jubilee King. A young son of King, named JUBILEE'S COURAGE, who is coming five, presented a beautiful picture of a Morgan. He has the flaxen mane and tail. His dam is
