Horse Care

Since joining the BSR team in October of 2019, my life has been full of life lessons and love from the boys at the ranch. They have taught me patience and how to enjoy the little things. When I am not at the ranch, I am at home taking care of the family farm. My boyfriend and I raise beef cattle and have just been licensed to sell our own maple syrup on the local maple syrup tour! I have been around horses my whole life, which lead to me competing in Western pleasure and eventually barrel racing, which I still compete currently on my horse Drego.
