Wishing Everyone a Happy Healthy New Year 

2019 has over all been a great year for Brookside with some big ups and some big downs. We feel very lucky to have such a great group of people and are so lucky to be starting 2020 with a great barn family. We thank you all for the love and support you give everyday. First the downs, the worst was loosing our sweet beautiful Messenger. He will live on in our hearts forever. Second and far less painful was our decision to sell our big boy Jack. He has moved on to a great home and we never tire of hearing how well he is doing. Ann was super disappointed to have her beautiful Josie slightly off most of the summer. Ann had hoped for many hours in the saddle both in the ring and out on the trail. Better luck this year.  On to the goods.... Our show team was much smaller this year but as always our team always makes us proud. Dedication, hard work and great sportsmanship is shown by all. This year we should be back to a full team. It was super exciting to help a family who has been apart or our Brookside family taking lessons for several years to buy their first horse. Rocky fits in so perfectly, what a super sweet boy he is. Melissa is putting a few months training on him to take him from trail horse deluxe to also take Henry into the show ring with us this summer. Next to join our family was the cutest little two year old, Mr. Wednesday. We love having him and his mom Meg be apart or our family. Last but not least to join us is Tony and his mom June. We are very full this winter, Shawn built a temporary stall to fit everyone in. Yup that meant giving up the shaving stall but what the heck you can put shavings about any where.  We had three wonderful camp weeks, look forward to this years with a lot of returning kids. Its been so awesome having Melissa really start teaching again. She is an incredible trainer and instructor. Love Love the mother daughter team.                                                                             Looking forward to all the adventures the new year has to offer with our students and barn family old and new. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Hope 2020 finds you happy, healthy and blessed
