“I Am Very Fortunate”
Horses have always loomed large in Archie Cox’s life. As a junior rider on the East Coast, he was already competing on the national level; in 1985 he was the first male rider in ten years to win the United States Equestrian Team Gold Medal. He also was earning ribbons at the AHSA Medal and ASPCA Maclay finals. Riding for the equestrian team at New Jersey’s Drew University, he repeatedly captured individual and team regional and national Intercollegiate Horse Show Associate titles.

In the spring of 1992, Archie moved to California, where he worked for the next several years with top trainer Karen Healey. In December 2000, he opened his own business, Brookway Stables - named after his grandparents’ farm in Maine - at Middle Ranch in Lakeview Terrace. There he typically has thirty to thirty-five horses in training and twelve to fifteen students/clients, from pony riders to older amateurs.

Of his students, Archie says, “I should be proud, but it’s almost more like ‘Oh, my gosh!’ I am very fortunate to have students who have won the junior and senior Pacific Coast Medal Finals and California Professional Horseman’s Association Medal Finals. Brookway horses have been Champion or Reserve at Devon, Harrisburg, Washington, the Metropolitan National Horse Show, and the National Horse Show in West Palm Beach. We’ve had seven USEF national champions, and my student Matthew Sereni won the 2003 ASPCA Maclay Finals.”

“I really love teaching,” Archie adds. “I like to see the relationship between horse and rider develop. And I’m very fortunate to have had great success choosing horse-and-rider combinations. But again, I am also fortunate to have great customers who have confidence in the choices I make.”
