We are very proud to have a wonderful trainer for our colts. Denise Withrow (Bourne) and her Family have many years of experience with walking and racking horses. If you are looking for a natural gaited horse trainer in this area or willing to bring your horse to her, I highly recommend her. She is certified in both TWHBEA & SSHBEA. You can also check our references on our website & see what they say about these colts when they continue their training, under saddle, etc. They are started right & have a 100% trust in people, why? Because Denise uses a gentle hand with them but also earns their respect. We have also had some of our friends send their horses to Denise. I'm always certain they will be happy with the outcome.
I’d like to write in praise of working with Rockin Bar W Ranch and specifically, Denise. I live in Oregon and had been looking locally for some time at a few colored horses here to purchase as a breeding prospect. It’s rare to have color genetics and a big walk, all in the same horse, and I’m picky. I wanted both and would not settle for anything less. Denise posted pictures of her babies from this year (2011) and after just one look at Brody, well I just had to have him. I believe this is because Denise makes very conscientious choices in picking her bloodlines, and it shows. Denise took the time to send me a baby that is halter, lead, clipper, farrier and hauling broke. Not to mention, vet checked, with a health certificate, registered with TWHBEA, vaccinated and wormed properly. To my delight, my colt hauled almost 2500 miles beautifully--shortly after being weaned--and arrived not only relaxed, but accompanied by a delightful little gift bag from Denise. I’m not unique. This is Denise’s commitment to her babies and her customers. I recommend making Denise, and Rockin Bar W Ranch your first consideration when looking for a horse to purchase. I can’t say enough about Brody. He is not only gorgeously colored, but also has the talent to be a champion in any TWHBEA, SSH show. Marshelle Backes from 3 C Stables in Dexter,Oregon.
Denise and Scott Withrow trained my horse they had her for 30 days. When she came back I couldn't believe she was the same horse. I am so pleased, she stands for me when I climb into the saddle, she neck reins and gaits up a storm, they did an excellent job. I couldn't be happier. Cindy Talbott
