My name is Ella! I am new at The Lost Miner and so happy to be here. I am originally from Boulder but I spent much of my childhood in Crested Butte and Gunnison. I even went to Stepping Stones for preschool! I begged my parents for riding lessons starting at a young age and requested trail rides at Fantasy Ranch for every birthday. I started taking lessons at the age of 9 and I've been riding ever since. I attended CSU where I was part of the English Riding Club and The Ranch Horse Team. After graduating this May with a degree in Equine Science I was lucky enough to come to The Lost Miner!
I have experience in many disciplines but I most enjoy spending time with my horse and learning from him, whether thats on the trail, in the round-pen, or riding out in the pasture. My 5-year-old gelding Cloak is still green but we are making progress everyday! You will often see me around the ranch with an overly friendly and very excitable puppy, his name is Willie Nelson. He thinks its his job to hug and kiss anyone and everyone on the ranch. He takes his job very seriously...
Feel free to reach out and say hi! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and getting to know the wonderful people that make up the LMR community!
