Western: Never Ever / Beginner / Intermediate Kids & Adults
English: Never Ever / Beginner Kids & Adults
My name is Morgan Holmes and I am so excited to become a part of the team at Lost Miner Ranch. I am from the Eastern Plains of Colorado, in the town of Peyton. My background includes gymkhana, 4H horse showing (Western and English), jumping, reining, reined cow, ranch versatility, and much more.
I began riding horses before I could walk, along side my father as he team roped. Following, I began showing 4-H, and I competed in both English and Western for many years. For a short period of time after that, I did some jumping.
Most recently and currently, I bought a yearling and started her in reining under Dooley Performance Horses. I showed her at Summer Slide 2019 and placed top ten in the 3-4 year old division. As we progressed as a team and showed at countless reining shows, I began reined cowhorse. After training under 6K ranch for a while, I picked up the cow work and trained under Lavert Avent. During this time, I became a member of CoVRHA, Colorado Versatility Ranch Horse Association. I showed ranch versatility shows and placed third in the nation in the novice division through CoVRHA. My knowledge is versatile and I am excited to share it with you!

Hi Everyone! My name is Anne and I am so thankful to have the privilege of teaching at Lost Miner Ranch and Equestrian Center. I grew up in rural Western Pennsylvania showing mainly in hunter jumpers and eventing, but loved to barrel race at the open shows! I spent most of my childhood with my pony, Abby. I was 10 years old when I bought Abby and, with the help of my trainer, she was the first horse I re-started. Since then I have had the opportunity to re-start multiple horses in a variety of disciplines: barrel racers, trail horses, training level eventers, and hunter jumpers.
I started my show career when I was seven years old in the Junior Jumpers. At 13 I also started riding and competing in eventing. When I was 16 I qualified for the USPC Nationals at Training Level in Show Jumping. I have trained with Olympians Karen and David O'Connor, Phillip Dutton, and Sam Sackson. I competed all over the East Cost in 4H, Pony Club, and USEF and I spent most of my free time, when I wasn’t in school or competing, trail riding my horses.
I went on to receiving my teaching certification through the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) in 2013 and received a CHA Level II certification in 2015 to teach beginner and intermediate English and Western riders. I take pride in that I not only teach people basic riding skills but I also teach all aspects of horsemanship. I strive to allow students the opportunity to learn how to work with a horse both on the ground and in the saddle. Students are taught skills in horse first aid, bathing, trailering, learning about the confirmation of a horse, horse nutrition, and the many other aspects that go into good horsemanship.
