Westbrooke Farm was established in 1984 and was recognized as being one of the first warmblood breeders in the southeast US. In 1996, Jennifer Schwickerath was hired by Logistics International, the Atlanta Olympic Committee and the United States Department Of Agriculture as the Manager of the 1996 Olympic Quarantine at Atlanta Hartsfield Airport. Westbrooke Farm sold many of their homebred Warmblood Sporthorses to clients across the United States and from Canada to South Africa. Understanding bloodlines and the effect on performance has been key to the successful breeding program in years past.
In the late 1980’s and 1990’s Westbrooke Farm was a leading edge Equine Reproduction and Fertility Clinic, standing as many as 16 stallions at one time. The Farm stood several successful warmblood breeding stallions including the Dutch/Holsteiner stallion Manchester/Kommandeur, the Hanoverian stallion Falco and the Trakehner Stallion Peron, the 1996 Olympic Bronze Medal winner in Dressage.
Westbrooke Farm was awarded with more than twenty Premium Foal awards by several Warmblood Registries, including GOV/Oldenburg Registry during the 1990’s and 2000’s breeding years. Breeding awards included the 2002 USDF Horse of the Year (Signature) and the 2008 American Warmblood Horse of the Year (Senter Stage). In the banner year of 2009, produced the top three Oldenburg foals in the United States.
Westbrooke Farm’s focus today is to provide World Class training and Boarding to the Atlanta equine community. Miriam Offermanns joined the Westbrooke Farm team in November 2014 and is committed to delivering the highest possible training and instruction to her students and their horses.
