Unbroken – 17h 2010 Hanoverian Gelding
“Nobo” is an extremely promising horse that Brooke imported in 2015. He is bred to be a top show jumper or event horse and already has a winning record through Preliminary. Nobo easily flew around his first CCI2*L in May 2021 picking up only a single rail. He is currently competing at the Intermediate level with plans for 3* soon. In 2019, he attended his first USDF dressage show and won 3 out of 4 of his classes at both 1st and 2nd level with scores in the high 60s. If his talent wasn’t enough, his personality fills up the whole barn. He is constantly looking for attention and showing off his good looks. While not the most straightforward horse, Nobo makes his quirks worth it with his love of competing.

Brooke and Lotos are a match made in heaven and already have a competitive Preliminary record several top placings including being the 2020 USEA Area II Preliminary Reserve Champion. Lotos easily finished his first CCI2*L on his dressage score in May 2021. This year will bring his first Intermediate and 3* competitions.

FortyLinesofDeputy – 17h 2013 OTTB Gelding
“George” is the most recent addition to the BBE team. He came into the barn as a sales horse to be restarted and sold but quickly stole Brooke’s heart with his willing nature and unbelievably uphill canter. Although he was a wonderful racehorse (even with Stakes wins!), George is quiet, relaxed and happy with his new career. Recently, George started his recognized show career and is already almost ready for his first Preliminary. His incredible jump and bravery has allowed him to easily finish every show with clean rounds. Brooke truly believes in this talented horse and thinks he could one day run around the highest levels of the sport. George has been said to have “the heart of a lion,” and Brooke knows that horses like this are not easy to find.

Pray for You – 2008 Thoroughbred Gelding
“Nic” is a talented OTTB that brought Brooke back up to the upper levels of eventing. He completed both the Plantation CIC* and Virginia CCI* successfully along with numerous Preliminary competitions all over the East Coast. Although Nic is a fierce competitor, he is a complete sweetheart in the barn. A gentle boy who knows multiple tricks and always “smiles” for a treat. Nic currently has stepped down from the upper levels and is enjoying teaching his new “mom” the ropes of dressage and eventing.
Face the Truth – 2009 Canadian Sporthorse Mare
“Cara” was an extremely promising young horse that was successfully competing at Training level as a 5-year-old with numerous top-three finishes. Cara also was a sweet horse around the barn that gave Brooke’s mom “pony rides” as a 3-year-old. She was qualified for the 2013 and 2014 YEH championships but tragically suffered a fatal pasture accident in 2014. She is sorely missed for her sweet personality, beautiful looks, and incredible athletic ability. RIP Cara.
Savoy Six – 1999 Dutch/Thoroughbred Mare
“Savoy” gave Brooke her first taste of upper-level eventing and was a complete cross-country machine. Her scope and ability on cross-country made up for her opinionated dressage tests! She completed the last CCI* long format in 5th place winning the 2010 USPC Calvary award and now is passing on her ability to her babies in Washington State!
My Kona Boy – 1993 Thoroughbred Gelding
“Kona” is a wonderful boy that brought Brooke from Beginner Novice to Preliminary and Prix St. George. Kona was also Brooke’s 2011 NAJYRC partner on the Region 6’s dressage team. Brooke will forever be thankful for his kind, caring nature and his difficulty on cross-country that taught her so much. He is one of the sweetest most gentle horses Brooke has ever worked with and now at 28 is still teaching his new girl everything to love about horses.
