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, which my grandmother gave me. 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 artwork and equine sculpture. 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 nature intended,  barefoot and in the company of the herd. 

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 the Silver Dapple Morgans Project. I've enjoyed editing the Rainbow Morgan Horse Association newsletter since 1996, 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, as well as our canine companions Jackson, Nellie, and Sophie.

Sit back and relax as you explore our website. I love to take pictures, so there is a lot to look through. Even better, come see our Morgans in person. We welcome your visit, and so will the horses. Give us a call or email today! -Laura Behning


BROOKRIDGE NEWS


June 1, 2015- Here is Callie (almost 7 weeks old) meeting the Big Ball for the first time. This is her approach to most anything. Clippers? No problem! Getting bathed? Bring it on! I picture this filly as a fearless eventing or CDE mount, with the movement (look at that trot!) to win in dressage as well. She comes from two great families of sport horses- her sire, RG Black Dandy, is from the same breeding program that produced Donna Crookston's fabulous CDE horse, RG Cowboy's Black Cadillac, and her dam's side features the famous Kennebec bloodlines responsible for another great CDE horse, Kennebec Count. Callie has two crosses to the very versatile palomino stallion Californio along with other good old Morgan breeding. This is an athletic, smart, beautiful and people loving filly who is ready to make a lucky someone's dreams come true!

Be sure and visit Callie's web page here to see much more of her. You can even see her in real time each afternoon on her MareStare channel here. You might even catch a training session! She and her dam Coral are generally in the stall and on cam in the afternoon.
