The Facility

NATURAL HORSEMANSHIP TRAINING and Breeding ranch. We have produced world champion Missouri Fox Trotters in Pole Bending and Barrel Racing along with great trail riding horses. Mostly we offer you a chance to improve your skills, there are aprox. 100 head here today. There is a cabin at the ranch for the girls to live in. Room and lessons are furnished and that is the salary. If you want to learn then here is an opportunity for a dedicated horse lover. You must be self-motivated as you will be on your own often. This is a western ranch. Ranch responcibilities are mostly horse training related (you must be light enought to ride young colts) but can include irrigation, planting crops, fencing, etc. We have a SMALL jumping course. We use Clinton Anderson style training videos to get you started. No smoking, drinking nor drugs allow. There is a curfew and a time for lights out at night.

  • YES, IT´S A WESTERN RANCH!..... IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!..... YOU´LL LOVE IT! I spent 1,5 months at the wide and open Anderson Foxtrotter Ranch. Rex is a very nice and friendly man with a big sense of humour. He teached me a lot about training horses in the way of natural horsemanship and gave me good examples "how to dance with a horse". (For this we danced at the roundpen once). It was great and I learned a lot! Thank you for the stay!

  • I've spent two months on the Anderson Foxtrotter ranch and it has been an amazing experience. Rex's horses are wonderful and easy to train. I've learned a lot about natural horsemanship and am very thankful for that. I miss the rides down the steep canyon lands, searching for anazasi houses, while training the horses. Thank you Rex!

  • Small Hunter Rider/Working Student

    'Miami. Fantastic position for petite rider! Are you 5'3 or under. SMALL and "tough" enough to train pony hunters. Prefer someone who has shown while growing up in pony hunter divisions .This is a great position if you want to learn to become an Instructor/Trainer. Opportunity to learn with lessons from a TOP "A" Show Trainer. NOT a temporary position but a position with a possible ADVANCEMENT. Live-in. Regrettably no pets. Ambitious people only please!'
