Justin is a local boy and his love for the outdoors started at age four when he began riding horse and shooting guns. He served in the National Guard 6 years with 3 years of active duty and has just graduated college with a degree in education. He hopes to get a job teaching and continue to come back to Red Horse for the summers to help take care of our wonderful guests. His favorite activity to guide is the all day ride which takes you up to a lofty spot that helps you see beautiful Idaho and even Washington for miles. He also loves to take people out to the sporting clays range and help them become comfortable with handling guns. He enjoys his job because he works along side really great staff and he gets to show off the area he grew up in to our guests.He started working for Red Horse in 2010. If you ever had the joy of working side by side with him at the barn, you know there is never a dull moment with him around. He is great with people, has a wonderful sense of humor and is an expert at making people feel welcomed and comfortable. He and Kelsey met in 2014 when she came to work here for the summer. When I asked him his favorite memory at Red Horse, he quickly responded “Meeting Kelsea!”
And for a good reason! Kelsea is a great gal! She loves what she does and does it with excellence. She has been working with horses since she was 3 years old (one more year than Justin, so she’s better…) She started off riding English and was in the jumping circuit for over 6 years, but now has her quarter horse and loves western style riding. She loves Idaho and working here because of the wonderful atmosphere and people she gets to meet. Plus, it is a pretty cool job.. she gets to take guests out on our face paced loping rides through the Idaho mountains! This is Kelsea’s second year here and the two of them together make a great team as they take out guests on their outdoor adventures.
Both Justin and Kelsea have a passion for the outdoors and for first class hospitality. They will take superb care of you on your ranch vacation and so will the rest of our amazing staff.
