About Hairy Back Ranch

Welcome to my website. Thank you so much for visiting!

Hello, my name is Randell.

Solo-Ride Creator

Welcome to my website. Thank you so much for visiting!

I would describe myself as happy, love cookies and not as fit as I should be.

I got my first horse Shady, just after I turned 40. Having a horse was not what I expected. I dreamed I would bring her home and we would ride off into the sunset together in perfect harmony with my hair flying in the wind behind me!! I was wrong.

It’s all ok though, I figured out a way to get good help and put myself on the right path.

I did a lot of reading, studying Natural Horsemanship. I learned the importance of a good foundation and how I needed to be a confident partner and a leader to my horse. Soon we were a team that shared trust and a language we could both speak.

Then things got great!

I decided I could now ride away from home, all on my own. We went to a local park one day, I had to hop off for a few minutes while in the woods (wink).

When I tried to get back on using a wet log, I had a mishap. After a very long walk back to the truck I drove home injured and very sad.

Once home, I cried (a lot) to my husband, he said, “Why not invent something?” All I could think of was “How on earth do other people get on their horse when away from their mounting block, out on the trail?

I soon discovered that getting back on by finding the right rock, log, fence or someone else to help me, I had to be lucky… or a long walk back to where I started.

I needed more than that. I didn’t feel luck would get me back on no matter what.

I came up with Solo-Ride…a little practice maybe, but no luck needed 😊 . I truly hope Solo-Ride helps you like it helps me.

All the very best.
