Davis is another volunteer and is Bobbi & Bill's son too. He helps out with general barn work and will be around mainly during horse shows and trail rides. Davis is earning his degree in finance so it is our plan to put him in charge of the 'office work'.
Rachel is the instructor for the beginner riders of all ages. She pays very close attention to detail. Her soft and sweet demeanor is perfect for the very young and the particularly frightened rider. Rachel is also a veterinary technician so she tends add a bit of science and animal healthcare to her lessons as a nice bonus. While new to teaching lessons, she has been an avid rider for years.
Linda is a volunteer and helps out with the horse shows, trail riding, sponsor promotion, and parties. Linda is a longtime dedicated horse person and owns Tux and Dakota. Her help and advice has been valuable to us all over the many years together.
Logan is an occasional volunteer and another one of Bill and Bobbi's sons. He helps out with the muscle work around the barn. Like his Dad, Logan is not into riding horses. However, he proves to be a solid hard worker & good for morale/comic relief.
Jake is a volunteer for the horse shows and Bill and Bobbi's second oldest son. Jake is the 'voice' at the horse shows and we have decided he must be the announcer from now on. Especially since there were many compliments from his performance.
Bill is the other owner and Bobbi's husband. He is not an instructor or much into riding horses; but Bill is the overseer of the whole operation. He provides the construction, help during the horse shows, handling of the books, and general valuable input.
Danielle is the intermediate and advanced riding instructor who concentrates her lessons on show events such as barrel racing, pole bending and etc. Most of Danielle's students are preparing for upcoming horse shows or learning how to do these different disciplines. Danielle also competes in them as well. She is tiny and quiet by nature but her horse handling skills are very large. She teaches and trains her students well and takes great pride in her work. Danielle has been an instructor since 2013.
