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 raised cattle. To us the western heritage is all about the wonderful people and amazing horses.
Today, our son Jason is competes in the cutting horse industry by showing and breeding. He is also active in 4H by showing pigs, is involved in the FFA, and is competing in High School Rodeo.
Our love of the western heritage has been in the family ever since our first experience many years ago with the Shriners and their 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.
Besides competing in the cutting horse industry, Jason is involved in the FFA and 4H where he raises pigs for the county fair. Jason plans to compete in High School Rodeo, continuing to Cut and Team Roping. He plans to attend college 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.
