Our Ranch Crew ~
Ironside Ranch is owned and operated by Mason, Jennifer and their two children, Bailey and Wes. As long time ranchers, they know the benefit of having a trustworthy, honest dog by your side and a good, sound minded horse under you.
Jennifer, raised on a large Quarter horse and Hereford cattle ranch, also trained and competed in Dressage and Show jumping in her early years. Later she worked for commercial beef cattle ranches in Arizona and California. Now, she raises and trains working ranch horses and Australian Shepherds.
Mason retired from serving the U.S. military for 33 years. Mason is valuable to the ranch as he is a master of many and most all trades, from constructing barns, fixing tractors, doctoring livestock, or managing the work, he keeps the ranch running.
Bailey and Wes are a big part of the family ranch as well. They have grown up on the ranch, learning the foundation of stock work and hard work. They are heavily involved in the breeding program and enjoy working with the ranch clients.
Our working 501c3 non profit to train our dogs as service dogs has been approved!
We will be working towards opening the ranch full time to help the disabled.
