"Such a rich treasure of bloodlines you have! It is always a treat to go to your page and compare your horses, I think you have achieved a more consistent type that is true to the rare old Morgan bloodlines than most other breeding programs combined - yet they are all so unique and each has their own special beauty!  And all are marked not only as clearly Lambert but strongly bear Criterion's stamp."

QUIETUDE MACKENZIE WITH A SCORE OF 435

LBF Hickory Smoke  412.5
CBMF Secret Crush  128.5
UC Minuet 101
Kerry Killarney 50


Jim and I went to Pine Barrens of NJ to do 50 mile NJ Devil. Wicked trip there, got lost, drove extra hour, truck misfiring. Weather first day pelting rain, cold temps and big winds. Pine Barrens are flat flat flat with deep sand. Mackie was trotting machine. There was nothing to slow her down! No hills, no turns, just straight sandy roads and woods trails. Jim was behind me calling out mph. We were going 12 mph for long stretches. Miles at a time. Once I got her up over 15.  Walked in last 2.5 miles,and still had 20 minutes to maximum! Second day was sunny but even windier. Mackie continued to fly. End result? She got 99.25,and was Reserve Champion. I was so happy  I cried. Finally, she got the recognition she deserved.This gives her a year end gold medal from ECTRA  and likely Champion for CT Morgan.

NORTH CAROLINA

'The Lambert Morgans of the Quietude Stud rocked the dressage competition at Southern States in Raleigh, NC. Quietude Seneca Rocks, "Today on July 31st Seneca had another dressage show in Raleigh NC and received the regional championship with qualifying scores at Second Level and in the Musical Championships. We are very proud of him."

"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. He won three of his four classes and was a close second in the fourth."
'That Seneca is one showy pony!  He loves his work.'
Seneca was chosen by Ruth a long time before he was foaled.

Both Seneca Rocks and Quietude Mandolin are proudly owned and adored by Ruth Shaw NC

QUIETUDE DANTE (Quietude Barcelona x Quietude Marietta)

"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

UPDATE ON ELLEN'S BEAUTI FUL QUIETUDE DANTE
Ellen said you will see the Dante pictures and wonder why you gelded him. He really has matured into such a beautiful horse; but then all of your horses are equally beautiful.
She is riding him on the trail at least 4 days a week, now. She has some vacation time coming up in August, and we are planning lots of riding. Dante found a great home with Ellen and Ellen found a great horse in Dante.

Ellen Daley and her sister Julie are close friends
and best riding pals.

QUIETUDE MACKENZIE (Quietud Forest x Quietude Coretta)

Owned and CTR competed by Esther Fiddes CT

On the trail competing in CTR 'Mackie' is amazing. True war horse! She never shies, spooks, slows down of quits. She is a trotting machine, her speed at the trot is incredible. True cruise control. I set the speed and just let her rip. She know her job perfectly. Ester Fiddes CT

Esther and Makenzie have been top 10 American Morgan Horse Association's Open Competition nationally multiple times, Reserve Champion CTR Morgan many times and won both silver and several gold year end middle distance medallions from ECTRA.

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." Nancy Ager GA

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

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.

JUSTIN MORGAN

MADISON LAMBERT was the Morgan horse selected
by the Morgan Horse Club in 1919 to represent the Morgan Horse breed.

Madison Lambert
was the model for the statue of Justin Morgan. Almost a hundred years later it stands at the University of Vermont to represent what the Morgan Horse standard should be.

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.


Read the original oath written more than 100 years ago.

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

1949 AD FOR JUBILEE KING
The Morgan Horse Magazine 1949 Home of the "Aristocrat of Morgans" JUBILEE KING 7570 and his beautiful son and grandson JUBILEE'S COURAGE 8983 and SPRINGFIELD 8421 These stallions give the discriminating mare owner a golden opportunity in proven excellence of type, substance with quality, stamina, soundness, very desirable bloodlines and true Morgan beauty. We are now offering for sale several excellent 1949 weanlings for fall delivery. One of these is a double grandson of Jubilee King. Springfield, VT

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 Townshend Lass by John A . Darling.
