Horse Professionals using The Trapper Creek Ranch for Training & Clinics
We have mentioned Marijn multiple times elsewhere on this website. Together with Tom, she manages the horse and riding program at The Hideout. Over the years, like Tom, she has taken thousands of riders on scenic rides of all levels, from beginners to very advanced and extreme trail riding. Marijn gives weekly liberty demonstrations and uses The Trapper Creek Ranch arenas to work with those guests who desire to learn more.
Like Tom she spends on average around 1,100 hours in the saddle. In addition to many hours on foot playing with horses in the round pen and arenas.
Renowned cowgirl and founder of The Art of The Cowgirl, Tammy Pate has used both The Trapper Creek Ranch and The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch Infrastructure. She has used both ranches as part of her Horsemanship & Yoga Clinics at The Hideout. Tammy’s husband Curt Pate is a professional horse trainer and cowboy, in addition to being one of the leading stockmanship trainers in the west.
Long time horseman and vaquero Ramon Castro, who trains most of the horses at The Hideout, also uses The Trapper Creek Ranch and The Hideout infrastructure to start horses, fine tune horses and finish horses. Ramon also trains horses for third parties and shoes all the horses at The Hideout and Trapper Creek Ranch. Ramon is also a very seasoned stockman.
