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 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'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, and 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


September 2015- After being gone for 8 years, our beautiful palomino gelding Roadie (registered name Gone Gold) has returned home again- to stay! A huge thank you goes to his previous owner, Michelle Ralston of Brandon, Manitoba, for allowing him to return home to his birthplace. When I nicknamed Roadie as a foal I had no idea how prophetic his name would turn out to be. His life has been quite an adventure. You can follow his story on his page here.

September 17, 2015- Callie left for her new home in Tennessee with Sara Amerman today. Here she is with Sara's daughter, Hayley. The two formed an immediate and obvious bond. To see more of Callie, visit her web page here.
