Have trail ride... will (we'll) go!!
The Tumbleweed Ranch entourage of riders and horses are always willing to go on trail rides when invited!! Some of Mr. Chuck's new best buds are the notorious Dr. Rolen Bridges and Dr. Sammy Prim. We have enjoyed the company of these 2 fine men for several years, and benefitted from their expertise and many years of experience, not only with horses, but with people as well!
As many of you know we have a group of mostly women, who trail ride every Friday at TWR. They start early in the morning and have lunch and ride again in the afternoon. They love to take a road trip! Dr. Bridges has a beautiful place near Tumbleton, and Dr. Prim has a beautiful place near Gordan.
We have pics from both rides and lots of great memories!! Thanks Docs for all the fun and fellowship!!!

The Tumbleweed Ranch and Trainiing Facility is the new home of LifeSavers Therapeutic Riding Program! The folks at Tumbleweed Ranch are proud to announce with the many other aspects of our ranch, we have adopted Carllee Jones' therapeutic riding program. In operation almost a year now, the program has grown and is flourishing. New students and their families have found this program by word of mouth, Doctor's recommendations, and the Spectrum Autistic Center in Dothan.
The program has been blessed by so many people who have wished to see it succeed. Many donations of time, money, and supplies have been coming in, and are all appreciated by Carllee,and all who benefit from their goodness and generostity. To follow Carllee and her program just go to her website, www.lifesaversranch.org, or follow her on Facebook at Lifesavers Therapeutic Riding Center!!
Daily training at Tumbleweed Ranch
The Tumbleweed Ranch trains horses on a daily basis. The young people work with Mr. Chuck on their own horses, while Mr. Chuck and his apprentices work several horses each day in exposing the young colts and fillies to many different obstacles. At the ranch where we are increasing the size of the barn, there are several concrete blocks that have been formed up for the beams to be placed on. The equine enthusiasts have taken advantage of these blocks to challenge their horses to stand with all four feet on the blocks like a circus horse. This along with many other challenges teach the horses to trust the riders. These young colts and fillies are exposed to many different types of obstacles on the trails and in the arena every day.
