AHA President Lance Walters said, "The AHA Executive Committee considered Mr. Morey's experience and reputation and voted unanimously to recommend Stan Morey to the board as our new Judges and Stewards Commissioner.
"AHA members can be assured that Stan
has an exceptional understanding of judging our breed, which will be a great asset in this restructured position that places major emphasis on the evaluation of judges.
We are fortunate to have Stan
in this position."
There will undoubtedly be some difficult decisions down the road, but I am not afraid to take a good look at things and make tough decisions for the betterment of our breed," said Morey
"We've already made tremendous strides.
I believe we have, and will continue to have, the best education system for our judges through a comprehensive program that covers all the different disciplines.
It's important that Arabian-specific characteristics are appreciated across each division," added Morey
