To sponsor Chief use the donation button to your right.
Chief has spent most of his pampered life at the equine department on the University of Minnesota's Crookson compass. As one of their beloved "steady Eddies", he has been the go-to guy for both top notch and beginner riders. Chief, is an honest and true "been-there, done-that" gelding that has built confidence in everyone who has had the privileged to learn from him.
At SDYR he continues to be one of our first choices for our first time riders. His patience and kindness are unsurpassed and his laid back trot that has been deemed a "wag" (walk/jog combo) is sure to get not just a smile from our kiddos faces but a great giggle from their bellies.
The demand on his time from UMC to SDYR would put him, I suppose in a semi-retirement status, no longer competing for the riding team, but still loving his job as a huggable four-legged coach and friend.
By choosing to sponsor Chief, you can further ensure his quality care, AND a cost-free ranch experience for the children who visit us and know this ranch as THEIR place.
