Finishing School


Our newest finishing project is off to a great start! He has been at Brownlee Equestrian for about one year.  He was just broken on the flat when he arrived but is now competent doing all the flat work: shoulder in, haunches in, and leg yields, and is jumping 3’6″ courses.  Our goal for him is to be Tayren Ryan’s big equitation horse.  Below is a video of his first show.


Wonderhall was a 5 year old that could just walk, trot and canter when he arrived in 2009. He was 17.1 hands with a very large, green, unbroken stride.  In 2011 he was sold to our client Tiffany McCormack, a Novice Adult rider.  They are currently succesfully jumping 3′ courses together. 


Georgio was a 5 year old Hanoverian when he arrived at Brownlee Equestrian.  He had been imported from Holland by Denize Borges at Crystal Image farms.  Georgio had no show experience and no lead changes.  He was jumping 3′ courses when he arrived.  Emma Clark purchased him as her up and coming equitation mount.  Georgio and Emma went on to win the 2008 EMO equitation classic at the Wine Country Classic and third in Norcal 2009 for Adult Equitation, as well as many Championships and Reserves in the A/O hunters.  They had countless wins in the 3’6″ Equitation and finished out their career together with a 5th place finish in the Norcal 3’6″ Adult Medal finals 2011.  Georgio also guided Kelsey Thoms to 3rd in the 2011 Horse & Hound Medal finals.  Georgio was sold at age 9 to New Market Farms in San Diego, CA and has succesfully guided his new owner to a few championships in children’s hunter division.

“Mitch” was a 4 year old Irish x gelding when he arrived at Brownlee Equestrian in 2007.  He was just broken on the flat and had never shown.  Mitch was champion at almost every show he went to while at Brownlee Equestrian.  In two years he continued to progress and eventually qualified for the 5 year old young jumper finals in 2009.
