Hobbles and Ice

Strange combo eh? Yeah that’s what I thought too… Before I tell you this story I need to introduce you to my father. His name is Steve, he is a sorta crusty old, Western Wyoming cowboy. He claims he doesn’t care about being stylish, but I can promise you he will be the last guy in […]

On my personal blog, I run a series (when I’ve time and I’m starting colts), called the Colt Cam Chronicles. This winter, like last, I am participating in a 12 Week Riding Challenge.   It’s run on Facebook through Northwood Farms (in the Pacific Northwest), and the goal is to kind of encourage you get […]

Wendel Elliott

He was in the middle of a story, horse back in the arena. He had been warming up his horse a few minutes before. It was a rare occasion to get together and enjoy a time of visiting with friends. The event was at a covered arena and being put on by a local cowboy […]

Ground Work Basics for All Horses

February 1, 2015
Jenn Zeller

One of the things we’ve learned since we began handling horses the “way” we do at the ranch, is that how your horse operates with you on his back can be predicted fairly accurately and even dictated through thoughtful and observant ground work. Any time we get horses in to ride, whether they are older […]


Ten Seconds in the Saddle

January 29, 2015
Terryn Drieling

I have what some might call an eclectic taste in music. My playlist includes songs from bands like Queen and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to artists like Red Stegall and Don Edwards.  No genre is off limits. I show no prejudice when it comes to a good tune and/or great lyrics. A couple […]


Hope In Rain

January 21, 2015
Wendel Elliott

As a rancher there are fewer times of high hopes, than that hope in a rain. It’s something that is vital to the ranching way of life. A good rain is always a welcome sight. Where you live it could be a rancher’s life line. You have to adjust your grazing patterns in you pastures […]


Tips for a Fidgety Horse

January 16, 2015
Jenn Zeller

The last thing any horse really wants to do is fidget. No, seriously, think about it. If you’ve watched them in the pasture, when they’re not eating, they’re lazing, and if they’re young and full of energy, they’ll play for a bit and go back to eating or lazing. They’d rather be at peace than […]

Bunkhouse, bachelorette pad, house, shack, apartment, or my favorite, the vet room equipped with a space heater and cot, these are examples of buildings better known as home. Signing up for a ranch job can be scary, almost as scary as not knowing the condition of your “provided housing”. I am in no way complaining, […]

Jessie Salter

We’ve heard this several ways; Finished barrel horse for sale, finished bridle horse for sale, finished rope horse for sale…You get the picture.  What exactly does “finished” mean? To me “finished” in the performance horse world helps define where a horse is in it’s training. In my opinion this DOES NOT mean that the horse […]
