The wranglers, also called barn staff, who work at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch enjoy sharing their passion for horses and horseback riding with our guests.  Customer service is a top priority, along with safety and fun!  A few of the team grew up in the area, some have been in the area for years, and others have come from afar. Either way, the wranglers love life in the Canyon, and sharing that with the great people who visit. The diversity of backgrounds strengthens the teamwork mentality of the wranglers.  Everyone works hard in order to provide the best experience possible for our guests!
