The journey is much lighter when we trust and obey and leave all the consequences to God
RockinHorseRanch Ranch is located in Waseca, Saskatchewan just 4 kms south on 684 grid (Waseca) off the Yellowhead Highway (Hwy 16). It is a family operation. We wanted to stay true to the foundation of the Quarter horse breed. The foundation that made the Quarter horse what it is, as the saying goes "the best cow horse to look through a bridle". The foundation is what makes these horses so great as they are suited for ranch work, but also much sought after for their versatility. You can work the ranch with them one day and the next your child can ride or show them and they will take care of you children and baby sit each one of them.
We are keeping our herd to a band of only seven broodmares. This way were are able to give the care and attention to each one of the mares and their foals. We like to be able to have each one of these foals ready to go new homes at weaning, foals that have the knowledge that only comes from each of them learning to trust and move forward with confidence by daily handling and grooming.
RockinHorse Ranch was started in August of 2007. It was the year that Howard and Nancy married. Nancy has been involved with horses all of her life; as a matter of fact this is a picture of Nancy on a horse at the tender age of 7 months.
Nancy followed after that passion and started riding at the age of two on her own. She went to school via horse and buggy in the summer and horse and cutter in the winter. She learned to harness and drive a team at the young age of 7 years. Then we she reached 8 she joined light horse 4-H and stayed committed to that till the age of 18. She continued on with showing and barrel racing until her first marriage that moved her out to B.C. While out there she was 4-H leader, worked at the track, bred Arabians, Paints and Appaloosas. She was involved in the show world, training and showing Arabs, Paints, Morgans and Appaloosas as well as getting her judges card. Nancy continued to do this until her late husband was stricken with cancer when she had to make the decision to let most of her horses and business go; as she needed to be able to care for her late husband as he wished to stay at home until the cancer claimed his life. So to that end Nancy kept him home on palliative care for 10 years. After his passing Nancy decided to moved back to her roots in Saskatchewan. Once back here she met an incredible man named Howard Rust, who like her had a love for the Lord and horses. Howard had always been involved with horses, but had never met anyone with whom he could share his passion. Now the rest is history!
Howard and Nancy along with Scott and Krystal (who have life challenges) live on RockinHorse Ranch and devote their time to raising these incredible horses that have been exposed to people and the lives that they live to the fullest in their pursuit of a partnership with their horses!
