We got some fresh snowfall at the ranch this week!

Hi everyone! Jenna here. This was my first week at the ranch as an intern, and the smile plastered on my face as I write this says it all. It has been a busy week with lots to do to get ready for the fast-approaching guest season, but everyone has continued to move ahead and work hard in good spirits.

The wranglers have been busy making all new leads for the season and Jenna got to try her hand at leather stamping on some of the poppers.

So far, the majority of my time has been spent in the arena gathering every morsel of horsemanship I can from Shane, Des, and Kevin. Every chance I get to ask a question or even just watch them ride makes me even more grateful to be here. I get out of bed every day excited to learn from them, and something tells me there is never going to be a day that I am not.

For me, this week has been all about learning the ropes. We bookend our days with chores to keep the horses in the best condition, and there are lots of things that need to be done in between. Let me just tell you, whether it’s working in the arena or out around the ranch, this team is the spitting image of discipline. I am fortunate to learn alongside all of these wonderful people in such a beautiful place, and I am looking forward to the long days ahead.

The deer have been very active this week!

Until next time!
