Rocky Mountain Farm is Canada's largest and most experienced Rocky Mountain Horse breeder. Colleen has been involved in breeding and training Rocky Mountain Horses for over 19 years and over 150 babies have been born under Colleen's watchful care.
From the time the weanlings are first born they are handled daily. They are a joy to work with as their friendly attitude and inquisitive nature soon has them running up to people in the field for attention. At Rocky Mountain Farm, we concentrate on preparing the horse for the trail and do not consider it a finished mount until it can be safely ridden through field and forest, on roads, past vehicles, alone or in groups. After starting the horses with ground driving and round-pen work, the balance of their training takes place "in the real world", on the trails, not in an arena. Most of the horses we sell as weanlings are returned to be put under saddle.
We have started over 100 Mountain horses under saddle here at the farm. Many of the horses offered for sale are the offspring, the sisters or brothers of those that have been started in past years, so we can often offer references from previous purchasers and videos of members of the family of any horse that you might be interested in. Having the experience of working with family groups of my horses helps us to match a prospective buyer with an appropriate riding horse. We can confidently predict size and temperament of a young horse to make sure it will be suitable for it's new owner.
Colleen is, and was one of Canada's first, Rocky and Kentucky Mountain Horse examiners and quite often has her expertise sought out by others concerning the breed and gaited training methodology.
