After years at Bruce Dodd's feedlot we have decided that it was time for us to pursue other avenues, look for more adventure and time for a change. We will always be grateful for the opportunities he gave us and the lessons we learned while we lived and worked there.
We now live west of madden Alberta. We are located on our family farm. together we run commercial cattle, grow grain, hay and still operate our horse business.
We understand that people need their horses to be very versatile. We believe that the horse that can go over bridges, cross rivers, bring a cow/calf pair out of the field and that can win in the show pen are the best horses to have. This is what you will be able to find in all our horses.
We have experience with halter, western pleasure, rodeo (barrel and roping), ranch, cutting, reining and a bit of working cow horses.
Our first year in the reining pen. We had a great year and ended the season 3rd in the OPEN (ARCHA). The winter shaped up to be very interesting with the buffalo and the mechanical cow. I had been riding with NRHA judge and professional showman Rhonda Miller (Thanks for all the help).
We have focused on cutting, in february 2011 we bought TICK TICK BOOM from topnoth performance horses. By march we were in full swing. Our 2011 year was amazing and we finished as CHAMPIONS in the OPEN. This year has been no excetpion he is hard to beat, we are looking great out there and are having fun doing it.
2012 we moved up to the big time. We showed in the ACHA and CCHA. in the 2000 limit class. we ended the year 4th in alberta and 8th in canada. together we won jackets, blankets, buckles, and had so much fun. We are RENO bound in April for the finals. We are learning lots and will be showing in the 10,000 novice horse in 2013.
2014 and 2015 were very busy years for us. we moved and and now into our new house. also we have added two show mares to our broodmare band. this year we will be showing TICK TICK BOOM in reining this year. Also look for us and a few of our young horses in the roping pen.
2018 has brought me back to ground level. lots of cattle work, LOTS OF team roping a bit of cow horse and tons of outside hard miles of all our horses.
I have 2 children Wasey, and Danika . They both love to work cattle and ride with me as much as they can.
