“Every horse I have had the privilege of showing has taught me valuable lessons, and enriched me both as a person and as a rider. Without owners, volunteers and supporters in this sport, my dreams would come to a screeching halt! The faces you have seen throughout this web site and in the following pages truly are BRF heroes. Thank you for your unwavering support of our program, and most importantly for allowing me to ride your phenomenal horses and entrusting me with their care!”

Finnegan aka “Finn”

(Owned by Brad Patterson ridden by Mary Burke)

2009 Percheron / Thoroughbred Gelding

Finnegan is as sweet as they come. Mary purchased “Finn” as a 5 year old prospect suitable for Brad Patterson to continue his riding experience on. This talented Percheron, Thoroughbred cross is currently working his way up the levels in Eventing and he has been an honor to train and show for Brad. After just a few months of training, Finnegan developed into the perfect horse for Brad. Every amateur owner should have a Finnegan! He is good hearted, patient, and above all, loves to be pampered by Brad and Mary.

Mary Burke Equestrian Institute Horse Trial

"My name is Brad Patterson and I am now what some may call a Senior Rider. I started riding at the age of 19 and continued for 30 plus years.  Three years ago I found myself reevaluating my life after being out of the saddle for at least 15 years. Something was missing in my life and it didn’t take me long to realize it was my love for horses, barns, the smell of leather and hay that I sorely missed. I purchased a new horse and quickly realized that I needed a very reputable barn and instructor. Serendipity through a mutual horse friend introduced me to Mary Burke and I quickly drove up to Ellensburg to “interview” her barn to see whether my new horse and I would be a good fit. My first impression of Burkeridge Farm was excellent. The property was very well maintained, the barn immaculate, the riding rings professionally groomed and the hayfields beautiful and most importantly the horses were very well attended to. I have now been a student of Mary Burke for four years and look forward to each of my weekly lessons with her. I am now on my second horse which Mary found for me and I could not be happier. He is in full board and training besides being expertly shown by Mary at three day events around the state.  I recommend Mary Burke and Burkeridge Farm without hesitation. As an added plus you also get the pleasure of knowing her hardworking husband Richard who is a full time fireman in Issaquah, WA and a full time barn hand on the weekends at Burkeridge Farm doing whatever is needed." ~ Brad Patterson

Out Of The Blue aka “Devlin”

(Owned by Krisalyn Brown trained by Mary Burke)

2005 Oldenburg Gelding

Devlin was bought as a new horse for young rider Katie Brown to transition to from her show pony Linoleum. Katie has ridden with Mary from age 5 to 12 and competed on her pony from grasshopper level to the novice level successfully. She is now ready to take her riding skills to the next level with this talented Oldenburg. Mary competed Devlin for the first half of 2017 and Katie was able to successfully take over for the rains at the end of the season with a win at her first beginner novice show with him. We are so excited for her and Devlin's’ next show season together.
