Finding this piece of heaven really placed us at the 'crossroads' of our lives. We wanted to find a place that shares our common family values, a deep sense of faith and a commitment to our community. What we found is this relaxing retreat from the real world, where we can be at one with nature and our horses. Come to Crossroads Ranch and Retreat, where heaven meets reality! We look forward to seeing you on The Ranch!
I have been riding as long as I can remember. I first began in the hunter-jumper arena with moving into 3-day event by the time I was 15 years old. During the college years, I studied Equestrian Studies and then graduated with a BA in Business. During my early years, I had ridden with some of the greats: Bruce Davidson, World Cup rider and Olympian; Sally Swift, internationally recognized for her training methods of balanced riding and Tom Poulin, FEI Dressage Rider & trainer. More recently my passion began to move me towards the training methods of ‘Natural Horsemanship’ stylized by so many wonderful gentlers such as Monty Roberts, Buck Brennaman and Clinton Anderson.
I have worked in the trades for most of my life. Vikki and I met when we were 13 years old and her passion for riding and for her horses became instrumental in our lives from the jump. I kind of knew, love the women, love her horses! Honestly, it was a great thing for me. I learned to see the magnificence of the animal through her eyes. When she started teaching me some of what is now referred to as ‘natural horsemanship’, these were techniques she was using very early on- without her even knowing it. Now we both share our love of riding, working with the horses and our commitment to offering a beautiful facility with people that share our passion and interests.
