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 artwork and 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 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 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 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


January 28, 2017- We have a new addition at Brookridge! Meet HCTF Lost in a Storm (Stormwashed x Tiger's Silent Saint), aka "Lacey" 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!
