Most every year at the ranch, there are new faces to be found in the corral. This winter, we are introducing fifteen new horses in to our herd in hopes of them becoming part of our beloved furry family!
They’ve come from a few different places – Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and even Pennsylvania! We are always looking for horses that can give our guests the best experience while they are with us, but it can be a process before they are ready for guests to ride them. Wranglers will ride them for as long as it takes for them to meet the qualifications in order to “graduate” into the guest string:
There is more to what we ask of our horses, but these are our top four. If horses meet these, we can often find the right niche for that horse in our string. We are very picky about our horses, and of course, there are occasions that horses don’t work out. However, we will do our best to find them a home where they will be happy doing a different kind of job. Just because they don’t work for us doesn’t mean that they are not nice horses; it just takes a little time sometimes to find the right fit, it just might not Rainbow Trout Ranch. But most of the time, it is. We’ve found that often, as long as we give them time, they figure out that this is a pretty great life!
We are so blessed to have horses that can take care of new riders and children, and horses that can be fun for riders who have ridden before at different levels. We love our horses!
