ABOUT BROOKRIDGE MORGANS
Brookridge Morgans began as a
childhood dream of mine. Like many young girls, I collected model
horses; one of my first was the Breyer black Morgan, a gift from my grandmother. Involvement
in the model horse hobby eventually led to the real thing- first
with a friend's Morgans, and later with the purchase of my Morgan
mare Reminiscing in 1984.
The Brookridge ideal is the Morgan of classic "old type". This curvy,
full-bodied, pretty headed, unmistakably Morgan
horse is reflected in my
equine sculpture and, hopefully, in the Morgans that I breed. I appreciate the older Morgan bloodlines of all families.
My training philosophy uses positive
reinforcement, which results in horses with incredibly willing and
cheerful attitudes. The Brookridge Morgans live outside, as
barefoot and in the company of
I am deeply involved with colorful Morgans and enjoy
researching and writing about bloodlines related to the various colors
present in our breed. My articles have appeared in The Morgan Horse
magazine, Simply Morgan,
Classic Morgan Admirers, the Rainbow Morgan Horse Association
Newsletter, Just About Horses, and many other equine publications over the years.
Many of my articles for The Morgan Horse magazine can be found here
(scroll down to the bottom). I maintain two educational websites about color in the Morgan breed: Morgan Colors and
Morgans Project. I enjoyed editing the
Rainbow Morgan Horse
Association newsletter from 1996-2016, and also served as editor of the Georgia Morgan Horse Club newsletter. My
other passion is
creating eye-catching equine advertising and website design.
My husband Jim built much of our farm himself, including our lovely
barn. Our extended family includes
the new owners of
horses we've owned and/or bred,
and our canine companions
Nellie, and Sophie.
Sit back and relax as you explore our website. I love to take pictures, so there is a lot to
Even better, come see our Morgans in person.

January 28, 2017- We have a new addition at Brookridge! Meet HCTF Lost in a Storm (Stormwashed x Tiger's Silent Saint),
a 2003 bay dun mare. I was not looking for another horse- I have too many already!- but I had always loved this mare
so when she became available I spoke up for her on the condition that we could get her bred. Putting her out with the stallion in November
seemed unlikely to result in a pregnancy, but guess what? If all goes well we will have a 2017 Brookridge foal this October!
This foal is by the bay splash Adiel's Snicker Zip and will be available. Lacey will also be for sale or lease after weaning next spring. See more of Lacey on her
new page here.
November 13, 2016 was a sad day. We lost our 16 year old Lab, Jackson. We had known this day was coming,
but that doesn't make the sadness any less. This picture was taken in April 2016 and I am so glad we did that particular photo shoot. RIP Jackson- you are missed
my sweet boy, every day.
October 1, 2016- Our annual Southern Model Horse Convention always features horseback rides on one of our Morgans- because breed promotion is #1 here at Brookridge! Here
is Hannah Yi on Rosie, just one
of the many show entrants who had fun on Rosie that day!
