Rocky Mountain Ranch's Blog



  • Welcome to RMR's Blog Thread!

    About Us: Here at RMR we strive to provide quality horses for both Western and English discipline horses, not only for our own personal use, but for the community as well. Currently we compete in mostly Western disciplines but we will start competing in English disciplines once our English division has been built up a bit more.

    Rocky Mountain Ranch is located in the state of Montana, where we have an abundance of mountains, soft rolling hills and plenty of wildlife. While our facilities are still under construction and being added onto almost monthly, we do have a pretty decently sized main facility for our current actively competing horses.

    Our Breeds: American Quarter Horse, American Paint Horse, Thoroughbred, Dutch Warmblood (KWPN, Riding Horse) and Swedish Warmblood

    Our Staff: Under Construction

  • DBR Sheza Wicked Player a.k.a Wicca

    After entering the Western Pleasure competition, I decided to reward Wicca with some leisure riding on the ranch's Western Trail course today.

    Wicca was a bit hesitant to cross the bridge (they're scary!) but as soon as she realized it wasn't going to eat her, she put her trust in me and crossed it looking as confident as if this were a competition. She's such a joyous little mare to ride.

  • DBR X Rated Fantasy a.k.a Fanta
    MBEC Gunpowder N Lead a.k.a Letty

    Fanta and Letty enjoying time off from their recent competitions in their paddocks here at RMR.

    Fanta has been shown a few times now and handled the entire thing like the well-behaved mare she is.

    Letty has never been shown before and while she was a bit anxious, she performed all of her maneuvers quite well under the scrutiny of the crowd and judges. We hope both mares will place well when the results are in.

  • Introducing RMR Tequila Rose!

    RMR has been patiently, but excitedly, waiting for this mare to finally reach the age of 5. While all horses start basic ground work at the age of 3 and are backed by age 4, we do not add them to our competing show string until they are at least age 5.

    This little mare has been a joy to watch grow. From the small little filly she was when she entered the world to the much bigger 15.3 hh mare she is now. Tequila has been one of the quietest mares here on the ranch and has absolutely no mare-ish attitude, she behaves like a gelding 99% of the time. Not only is this mare extremely willing to please, she has confidence and color to brighten up any show arena.

    RMR Tequila Rose is a stunning Amber Champagne Overo and after some successful shows, will be available for brood to outside stallions. Without further ado, here she is, we hope you enjoy her as much as we do!

  • Ohman, Tequila Rose is beautiful! If she disapears one day, don't look for her at our place hahaha <3



  • New Rocky Mountain Ranch Addition!

    Introducing another simple yet stunning mare to Rocky Mountain Ranch. This mare will be shown for the remainder of the 2019 season, primarily in Reining. For the 2020 show season and seasons after, she will be shown in both Reining and Cutting disciplines.

    Welcome RMR Lucifer's Daughter a.k.a "Roxy", a sooty buckskin AQH.

  • ~ New Addition ~

    Rocky Mountain Ranch is welcoming one last mare to our Western show string for the 2019 (and upcoming) show seasons. We have decided her primary discipline should be Reining and her secondary discipline will be Cutting as she has beautiful fluid movement and also has a very keen cow sense. Once she has gained enough points in her primary and secondary disciplines we will consider offering her for brood to approved stallions here in the EC community.

    Without further ado, please welcome RMR Sugar Coated, a flashy soot Palomino Sabino APH.

  • DBR X Rated Fantasy (a.k.a Fanta)

    This mare was sold to us by our dear friend, @Chloe-West, over at Diamond Bar Ranch. We cannot say enough about this horse. Fanta is not only laid back but when it comes to the show arena she has the heart, drive and talent of a champion. While she hasn't been shown very much yet, she has managed to secure 5 points in Reining and 1 point in Western Pleasure.

    Since she is laid back and calm, Fanta got the privilege of being the first horse on our new property. We felt a move to this side of our state would be a quieter environment for our horses while they are raised, trained and prepared for upcoming shows, she seemed to agree. Her favorite part of the morning was taste testing the grass in the new turnout paddocks.

  • RMR Can't Dutch This

    Rocky Mountain Ranch is proud to welcome this lovely KWPN mare to our ranch! This mare will be one of the few foundation horses to help kick off our English division. We plan for her primary discipline to be Show Jumping and her secondary discipline to be Dressage.

    This mare is an absolute sweetheart inside and out. Her favorite past times include running around the field with her pasture mates and giving staff her cutest possible looks for a few licorice twists. When offered a carrot, however, she politely declines. We are proud to add "Dutchie" to our ranch as we feel her personality, competitive drive and her movement make for a great addition to our show string and our breeding program. 1_1572382731525_Screenshot-68.jpg 0_1572382731523_Screenshot-67.jpg

  • Woodside Park's Halter Show Entries

    *We've been busy here at RMR! We've entered some of our Western horses into a Halter show over on Cavallo Sims today. It was busy and there was lots of bustling about but the horses were all well behaved and enjoyed their turn in the spotlight

    *We are hoping that all of our horses place well and add some more points to their ever growing show record. I think the best behaved one of the bunch was poor Outlaw. He didn't know what to think being around so many temperamental mares. He seemed to get the dreaded mare stare whenever he wanted to sniff noses or make a new friend, we made sure to give him a few extra peppermints since he was such a well-behaved boy.
