About Susan Gibbs
Susan grew up on a working cattle and sheep ranch in northeast Wyoming. She showed horses and competed in rodeo during her high school years. Susan moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1977 and began studying with Roy Yates, a reining trainer in 1980. She has worked with numerous world-renowned clinicians, both in Western and English disciplines throughout the years. Susan developed the Natural Horsemanship Ranch Camp in 2000, helping many young riders develop confidence around horses, and a strong balanced seat and riding skills. As a ski school pro for the Aspen Ski Schools for over 30 years, Susan continues to deepen her level of understanding about how to communicate and educate all levels of both horse and rider.
My ranch is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Carbondale, CO. With wide open spaces, beautiful trails, a sweet little riding arena and barn, the ranch offers the opportunity to interact with horses, goats, and dogs, and to observe the wildlife that make the scrub and riparian areas around the ranch their home.
This is a private ranch, so we welcome your SCHEDULED visit. If you'd like to stop by outside of your appointed camp or lesson time, please call ahead and schedule an appointment.
