About Carleton

Carleton Brooks, best known as CB, is one of the most respected and recognized horsemen in the country. Whether piloting one of his many nationally ranked hunters to a winning round, showing a young prospect in hunter breeding classes, judging at a major horse show, or working with a wide variety of students and horses as a trainer and clinician, CB is a hands-on professional with an exemplary reputation. His very successful career spans over three decades coaching, judging, training, riding and competing.

CB founded Uphill Farm, Inc. in 1981 and based his successful training and sales business in Atherton, California. He moved to San Diego in 2002 and now concentrates on assisting others to succeed in the show ring as well as bringing along young prospects and managing an active sales operation. In addition to focusing his skills on coaching, training and sales, CB is a sought after judge and clinician and is very active in the governance of horse sports at a national level.

CB is committed to the betterment of the horse industry and has been very involved in the following organizations and committees: the United States Equestrian Federation hunter and hunter breeding committees, the West Coast Hunter Challenge Series, the American Hunter Jumper Foundation and the Hunter/Jumper Hall of Fame selection committee.

Often seen with his sidekick and canine companion, Hannah, CBs goals have never changed: to produce and promote the finest show horses and riders to compete and win on both a regional and national level and to help others to do the same.
