Horses aren’t just our business. They are our passion!
Sure, we will tell you about us. But we believe that what the horses think is more important than anything we can write; so we invite you to schedule a tour. See for yourself how the horses interact with us and each other. Inspect our hay and bedding. Speak to boarders and students. Watch a lesson. Ask questions.
Rosewood is an American Riding Instructors Association certified instructor who was privileged to get her start apprenticing for Julie Goodnight, where she assisted with training “green” (untrained) horses and learned how to communicate and, more importantly, listen to horses. Roanna taught Hunt Seat and Western Pleasure in South Florida and then briefly here in the Rogue Valley, before reluctantly taking a break to raise children. In 2016, she purchased a beautiful equestrian facility and founded Roxy Rose Ranch and Riding Club where she enjoys sharing her first love with horse-lovers of all ages.
Nitia’s adventures among horses began at the age of four, sans saddle, with a patient mare for an “instructor.” Through high school she participated on the Equestrian team, where she qualified for state three times. Nitia furthered her skills studying equine sciences and animal behavior at Feather River College. Here she dived head first into the complicated yet rewarding opportunity of starting colts under the “Natural horsemanship” approach. As an instructor, she takes the time to really understand the unique needs and of individual horses and students, so that their time together is meaningful and productive.
