Random Reiner: Vanessa Rogers

Click to Like

By Wendy Deans

At a time when she was looking for a change from English riding, Vanessa Rogers just happened to be driving by the Majestic Valley Arena in Kalispell. The large event sign on the highway said "Reining Show." Vanessa and her parents pulled in to see what it was all about. To Vanessa, it looked great: certainly not easy, but lots of fun.

It turned out that reining horse trainers Meagan Shea and Jarrod Grieve of JM Performance Horses were located near their own home. So the next spring she and her folks, Linda and Dave Rogers, stopped in at Meagan and Jarrod's for a visit.

2012 Yellowstone Slide II

Story and photos by Wendy Deans

The first week of July was a busy one everywhere in the state. Parades, rodeos and other events were held all over Montana. The ongoing dry conditions slowed down all the backyard fireworks, but the ones held by cities or rodeos were as spectacular as they get.

We switched tracks the day after the 4th to ride in Wilsall at the second Yellowstone Slide of the summer.

NRHA judge, Dr. Jim Morgan, officiated for us. From Pilot Point, TX, Jim is one of NRHA's highest earning Non Pro riders in the world. A veterinarian by trade, horses have been Jim's entire life. The inside, outside, upside and downside, every side of the horse, Jim has worked with it or on it.

MRHA / YRHA 2012 Spring Schooling Show

Story and photos by Wendy Deans

When it’s 19 degrees outside and the roads are glare ice, it does make a person think twice about driving 20 or 60 or even 90 miles hauling a trailer to go ride your horse. Even with those conditions, quite a few riders still braved the cold to come to Anderson Training Stables to school their horses Saturday April 7th.
