Bob and Susie married in 2000 and joined forces to create what Triton Morgan Horses is today. Bob and Susie take great pride of all the Triton foals they have raised since the early 2000's
Bob Morgan grew up in the tradition of breeding, training, showing, and selling Morgan Horses. His family founded Triton Morgan Horses and raised over four hundred Morgan Horses at Red Fox Stable in Gilroy, California beginning in 1960. Over the years, Bob has had the honor of riding, driving and handling many high-quality Morgans including Lippit Pecos, Orcland Bold Fox, Applevale Red Fox and a host of others. Bob has proudly raised five successful children and always looks forward to time spent with his grandchildren. Bob is an Estate Planning Attorney and Trustee with a practice in San Jose, Ca. since 1978.
Susie Morgan is originally from Los Angeles and her passion for horses started at the early age of five years old. Inspired by attending pony rides and local classes with her father, Susie’s first riding lessons were at Leo Dupee stables, a Saddlebred stable in Culver City. By the age of 9, Susie was in the show ring. Susie has fond memories of attending countless shows with her father. Always working hard, doing well, and having a great time. Over the years, higher level shows taught her to ride aggressively and not to give up. This carried over to her teaching and training today. Being invited to “catch ride” a beautiful black gelding owned by Barbara Rovira in 1967 opened the door to a lifelong career in Morgan Horses. Susie became known for riding Barbara Rovira’s horses. The most famous horse, Waer’s Royal Hawk, was the high point Morgan for seven years. Susie got to be his pilot four of those. Susie was hired by Bob Morgan, Sr. in 1971 starting her professional journey with Triton Morgan Horses. 1972-1982 Susie operated California’s first public Morgan training stable in Livermore with Garn Walker with horses competing successfully up to the National level with the equitation riders always standing out. 1983 marked the opening of her own facility, “Susan’s Stable” in Southern California. Being acknowledged in Helen Crabtree’s revised edition of “Saddle Seat Equitation” was a highlight of her career. While located at Silver Oaks Ranch she trained 25 Saddlebreds and was able to jog and ride World Champion 5 gaited horse, Imperator. The most outstanding team of Sara Plumley and her Crown Corinthian won 27 Grand National and World titles in 1985-1987 in Hunter Pleasure, Western Pleasure and Stock Seat Equitation under Susie’s guidance and instruction. Susie’s daughter, Elizabeth, at age 10, had a great season (1989) in Western, winning 8 blues and 8 Championships for 17 and under.
The end of 2000 marked a return to Red Fox and Triton and joining forces with Bob. In re-building the breeding program they acquired broodmares and stallions. With the help of an infusion of Futurity Farm horses, the program moved ahead producing high end individuals quickly. Bob was awarded Region VII breeder of the year. Susie was awarded Trainer of the Year in 2000 and was awarded the Golden Reins Award for involvement and dedication as a Judge, clinician, convention speaker and panelist in 2005. Bob and Susie married in 2003 and moved Triton Morgan Horses to Hollister in 2004. They are very proud of the outstanding horses they have raised with their breeding program, consistently producing quality Morgan Horses that are true to the breed type and with excellent conformation and quality. Susie continues to teach and inspire people of all ages about Morgan horses, horse care and riding and driving. She rehabilitates horses into good health and soundness. An animal lover, she takes care of the barn cats, a small group of laying hens and enjoys the family dog, King Louie. She and Bob frequently attend 49er games, cherish time spent with their grandchildren and enjoy the day-to-day aspects of keeping the ranch going.
