I have the pleasure of working with this cute little mare for a few weeks. After not taking training horses in for a while, it’s been l awesome to put some time on her. She went from not picking up the left lead to a beautiful balanced counter canter and her changes are coming along nicely. She is really smart and so eager to please ❤️❤️

Loving this spring weather we have been having! It’s a lot of work to get everything mowed but it sure is worth it when the grass is so green!! 😍

Everyone at Sky High Ranch is devastated with the loss of one of our own, Ruby Sue. She was a great mare loved so much by her humans. She was lucky to have such a great family to call her own these last few years. We will miss your sweet feminine nicker at feeding time Ruby Sue. Fly high in the sky leaving hoof prints in the clouds sweet girl ⛅️🌈 ⛅️
Emily and Sarah, we are so sorry for your loss

Sky High Ranch ventured to Running I today (about time!! For myself at least)
So fun to expose the horses to so many new and scary things. A lot of it felt like going through a haunted house 😂😂.... you never knew what was lurking around the corner! Wish I had taken more pictures, but this is what I got. The horses were all fantastic 😬

Great article about Drogen’s part in SF Operas production of Carmen! ❤️

One of the most buzzed-about debuts in this summer's "Carmen" has been that of Drogen the Opera Horse.

So how did Drogen come to a life of music? General Director Matthew Shilvock shares the story of how one horse survived last year's Camp Fire to become a stage phenom, starring opposite some of opera's finest voices:

Our amazing resident Drogen makes his debut tonight at the opening night of “Carmen”, tonight at the San Francisco Opera House alongside the most amazing singers and cast. We have been lucky to have such humble, talented opera singers to work alongside with. Drogen had the opportunity to to have a private concert in the barn with “Escamillo” before rehearsals started.....who else has Opera in the barn?? Good luck tonight Drogen!!!!!

Growing up as a kid with horses your dreams are always riding on the beach, “galloping” through a field of grass, riding in parades, and collecting ribbons and buckles at horse shows. Did it ever cross my mind I would be onstage at the SF Opera house with one of the prettiest horses I’ve ever met?? Nope. Not for a second. Here’s to the unknown, and the twists and turns life has in store! 🥂.
Thank you to our barn family who has been coming to help, and a huge thanks to Eugene for pushing me to embark on this adventure with his horse!! I didn’t really realize when he said the “opera” he actually meant “THE OPERA” 🤣🤣

Tighten up those backs cinches folks!

Reason # 545,678,324 to keep that back cinch snug!!!! If you don’t keep it snuggled up to your horse... it does no good, & can get you in a major wreck. You are better off with out it if it’s not used correctly!!!! My PSA for the day! I see loose cinches all the time hanging down. Not a good idea! 🧐🙈 (good grief everything turns into a “debate” the point is keep it snug or take it off) 👌🏼 Thank You zoom in experts. This Can still happen lol. The leg is not through the cinch...

Taking advantage of the one sunny day we had! Always a adventure with Leslie Moreda!

Horses seem to have a locked box in their soul....

That can be a 3 digit combo or that crazy computer password that must have one uppercase, one digit, two symbols, your favorite color, a yellow organic vegetable and the $1000 answer on jeopardy in it. This horse, Jack, is the latter. Once unlocked, the options are endless.

Duke went to his first obstacle challenge..... was an “in-hand” class, so we got to see if our work over the past couple months, worked outside our comfort zone. I will say, he is so trusting, observant and flat out adorable! ❤️ this guy.

I have helped quite a few people find horses over the last few years, and sold quite a few. The horse buying/selling process can be fun, yet very frustrating on both sides. The one thing that has been the most frustrating is how many people buy the wrong horse. There are always red flags you can look for but a lot of buyers just don’t have the experience and know what to look for. We have all heard the horror stories that come with buying a horse.... most of the time your first. I realized there is a big need for information on this topic so I am holding a seminar to get some of this information out there. Dr Courtney Lewis from Circle Oak Equine will be there as well to give a vets perspective on prepurchase exams, etc. If you know of someone who wants to buy a horse and could use this info, please pass this on!!! Thank you!

Welcome Tracy, Alan and their new boy Eddie to the barn!! So happy to have you here 😀

I have said before how scared this little guy was of everything when he came, and I posted a video of him going through our obstacle course. I know it’s hard to imagine him spooking at anything after watching that.
I realized the other day I have not drug anything with him. Sooo, here is day one of the drag. It’s too hard to video while working with him but here is a snippet, so you get the idea where this guy is coming from. I will try and post his progress and hope to be dragging stuff successfully soon!!!

Barns.... they are full of drama. All horse people know that. But not ours!! I want to take a second and shout out to the best barn family one could have. We have such great people invading our space daily 😬. I mean, it could be really bad. Thankfully everyone that is here, are not just friends, but family. Thanks for everything you all do to make our barn so wonderful ❤️❤️
Huge thank you to Hannah Beebe for capturing all these moments! I cherish them as much they do!! 😘
(We are missing a couple people who didn’t get pictures done, hopefully they will soon!!)

This little guy had a severe case of “anythingthattouchesmylegswillkillme” phobia.... just look at him now! This was his first time through with the noodles so close together. He is such a doll and I love watching him conquer his fears everyday!!

Cowboy Challenge last weekend at PRDC. I’ve never asked Cali for any speed through obstacles, so had to start somewhere. We’ve never done rollbacks either 🙄. Yea, need to work on that. But she was so good and confident, just getting better and better. We took first in the Open 😬
