I was born wanting to own horses! I moved to Agua Dulce when I was 6 years old and got my first horse. I have been hooked ever since! You know the feeling! I started riding, tuning up horses and giving lessons to younger kids when I was 13. When I was in high school I started my first colt. Most of my early education was self taught...I read every horse book I could get my hands on .... and good ol' trial and error! As I got older I took lessons and worked for various barns. I have competed in English and Western shows... then turned my focus mostly to gymkhana and barrel racing. I got my formal education by attending Cal Poly State University where I obtained a degree in Animal Science/ Agribusiness. I participated in several horsemanship and colt starting projects along the way. I believe that with horses... you never stop learning. I love to continue learning and enjoy sharing my knowledge with others to help share their riding skills and enjoyment! We are currently very involved in Acton Rangers and CHSRA District 9 Rodeo Association!
Craig was raised on a dairy and is AWESOME at making repairs/ improvements and building anything you can ask for! He keeps the ranch running smoothly! He has served as president of the Region 5 California State Horseman's Association, current Acton Rangers Captain, Current CHSRA D9 President, and served as an officer in the Alameda County Sheriff's Posse that we were very involved with! In the Posse, Craig worked crowd control, search and rescue and performed at various parade and public relations events. Anyone who knows Craig... knows he loves our trail rides... camp-outs and cooking!
