Old Cowboy Ranch

Jasper, a Standard Bred arrived at the ranch a few years ago. Like Jack, Lucky, Chance, Kona, Prima, Mardis and other ranch horses Jasper was destined to be slaughtered for meat but thankfully Johni rescued him from that fate.

When Jasper, Chance and Lucky were unloaded from the stock truck they were a sad sight, very thin and “depressed”.  They walked off the truck and slowly walked in a single file around the edge of the paddock and the sight of the three, skinny, sad horses brought tears to Johni’s eyes.

Today Jasper has filled out and has an outgoing personality along with  impeccable “ground manners”.  He will actually close his eyes and is completely relaxed when being saddled up. Once on the trail he is fun to ride, with a canter that is smooth as silk.

He’s tall dark and handsome with a beautiful long tail – and in the summer Jasper gleams like a show horse.



We are open year round!

Call to book a stay and/or lessons or a trail ride today!
