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
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
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'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.
Sit back and relax as you explore our website. I love to take pictures, so there is a lot to

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
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
You might even catch a training session! She and her dam Coral are
generally in the stall and on cam in the afternoon.
