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

It is with a strange mixture of great anticipation and complete and utter terror that I would like to
announce that we will- hopefully- have our first foal here in 7 years in just a few
Not for lack of trying over those 7 years, mind you. Our beautiful
Coral Forest (World's Edge Goldoak x Kennebec Topaz) is bred to RG Black Dandy
(RG Morgans) and was officially due April
5. Many thanks to Harris and Joanie Grunden for working a trade with me on the stud fee, and my vet Ross Kittrell of New South Equine
Medicine for taking payments on his services. And of course- and most of all- to Coral, who took
on the first cycle- easily the least expensive breeding I have ever done aside from pasture
breeding! It was greatly appreciated after all of Pat's EPM expenses early last year.
I am trying to look forward to having a Morgan foal for the first time in a very
long time, but I won't stop worrying until it's safely here and all are healthy- and probably not even then!
I check on Coral regularly while she is outside during the day, and this was the scene on the afternoon of April 4. Jim was working on some repairs
to the run in shed and of course, Coral had to "assist". She is a character, but then, that's a Morgan for you!
Coral is on MareStare if you'd like to help keep an eye on her. You might even get to see her foaling! This foal is for sale,
by the way- send me an email if you're interested!
