About us

Jolene supervises the cattle crew (John & Shug)

We raise and train performance horses.  Our team consists of trainer Lyn Meredith, her husband John, and our ranch helpers Mariah and Veronica. Lyn has been training horses for clients for 20 years, and has always trained her own horses since she was a youth. She is a horseman first, using herd behavior to motivate horses. Her number one priority is to build a horse who is confident and who loves his or her job. She uses performance principles, a reining foundation, and dressage for optimal balance and performance in each horse's projected discipline. She currently shows in reined cow horse events, and in ranch horse versatility.  She has shown in and judged extreme cowboy races in the past.

Charlie and her family bought Dahlia from us in April.  They have only been together for three months.  They went with their trainer, Sandy Western, to Gold N Grand last week and came home with three top 5 buckles!  That is pretty awesome because it was Dahlia's first big show. We are big fans of Charlie!!!!
