Meet the Horses

At Kiskatinaw Ranch we have some truly amazing characters, some of which are horses! 

 

Ranger

This is Ranger, age 24, quarter horse gelding. We got him from a local (Grovedale) rancher, who used him for about 18 years pasture riding (rope cattle on the range, doctor them, move them from one pasture to another etc.) so he has a lot of experience. Dale had retired him about a year before we got him, he was very happy to have him come out to the ranch, as he was quite fond of him and wanted him to end his years in a happy situation. Ranger is our star. He will slow walk an 18-month-old child around the pen and then give an older person a nice lope. An excellent ride for a nervous or beginner rider.

Max

This is Max, a registered quarter horse gelding. He is actually our horse and is in training, on his way to becoming a working cow horse.

Cole

This is Cole (Colorado) a quarter horse gelding. This horse is one that Pastor Nelson had purchased, which then ended up with our son and daughter-in-law and they donated to the ranch. Cole is about 22, a very kind horse but one that is getting a few reminders of what good manners mean. We did not use him as a student horse last year for this reason, we'll see how this year goes for him.

Sunny

This is Sunny, a registered quarter horse gelding, belonging to RafterAZ. He is an advanced working cow horse, very nice mind but likes a warm up before you get in the saddle.

TwoStep

This is TwoStep, a registered quarter horse mare belonging to RafterAZ. She is the dam to Sunny. We used her with the kids last summer, a very nice minded horse that is a pleasure to ride, but she does know when she has a new rider on her back and will take advantage of that to her benefit. She prefers to loaf along the fence rather than do as requested, but this gives the rider some experience in 'problem solving'. A lot of hours under the saddle for this mare, very experienced.

Blue

This is Blue, another registered quarter horse gelding belonging to Rafter AZ. This is Zane's horse, a finished bridle horse and advanced working cow horse. Very nice minded but one of the most complicated horses we've owned. First to the fence to greet you, very athletic but the first 20 minutes in the round pen are his; after that you can do as you want as long as you know how to stay in the saddle. A horse you need to pay attention with when riding or he'll turn out from under you at the touch of a rein.

Ginger

This is Ginger, a registered quarter horse mare. She is 12 this year and will be headed to Fort St. John to be bred shortly. She will be back in plenty of time for the camps in August. This mare has a few quirks that we are working on but is very nice in the round pen. last year lots of the kids enjoyed her very much. A very kind mare but not really keen on getting caught (one of her quirks!). Once caught, she is a willing partner. Very athletic, very pretty mover. We are looking forward to seeing what she foals out next spring (if all goes well in the breeding dept).

Tia

This is Tia, we think she is about 22 (she was born on our place, an 'oops' over the fence breeding between our quarter horse mare and the neighbours AngloArab stud. Can't remember the exact year she was born:) She is still a mover and a shaker for her age, but good under the saddle. A lot of the kids enjoyed riding her as she likes to move out but is still respectful.
