HAPPY SPRING AND GREETINGS TO ALL
Spring is passing us like a whirlwind this year! So much is happening here at the ranch, I'll have to keep this short. But you're all welcome to email or call to chat for more details on anything mentioned.
CHANGE IS IN THE AIR!
We've recently been blessed with the sale of our ranch at Richland and we're in the process of getting relocated to a new facility in Baker City, Oregon, just 40 miles west. This move will allow our customers, friends, and family easier access to us and our horses. The new location is also accompanied by some changes and additions to our current programs. Stay tuned for more information later in the summer.
