PONY EXPRESS RANCH – PARKER, COLORADO
Our ranch provides our children and grandchildren the opportunity to experience the western heritage. We’ve been involved in breeding and raising cutting horses, as well as competing in the NCHA/NYCHA for over 20 years. During this time we have also invested in the cattle business. To us the western heritage is all about the wonderful people and amazing horses.
Today, our son Jason competes in the cutting horse industry by showing, breeding and competing at the Colorado High School Rodeo Association. His events are Team Roping and Cutting. He is also active in 4H by showing pigs, is involved in the FFA and serves as an Officers.
Our love of the western heritage has been in the family ever since our first experience many years ago with the Shriners Palomino Patrol. From there, we were introduced to the sport of reining, the cattle business, and eventually cutting.
Our journey has come full circle as Michael is the now the Youth Director for the National Cutting Horse Association. As the Director, he develops programs for the youth in the NYCHA and provides opportunities for scholarships, leadership/educational seminars, youth awards for accomplishments (Hall of Fame, Sportsmanship and others), and various competitions and activities.
Jason plans to continue competing in his Senior year in High School Rodeo, continuing to Cut and Team Roping. He plans to attend college and hopes to be on a Rodeo Team and obtain a degree in the field of ranching and agriculture business.
His hobbies are riding horses, motorcycles, hunting, fishing and loves playing the guitar.
