Silver Spade Ranch        

Silver Spade Ranch is a brand new boarding facility located just 1.5 miles from Highway 26 at the Highway 6 junction in Banks Oregon.  We are a semi-private facility offering full and partial care boarding for horse owners dedicated to improving their horsemanship skills.  Our facility is geared towards a ranch style of horsemanship drawing on the techniques and styles of the Great Basin Buckaroo and the  Vaquero, commonly known these days as Natural Horsemanship.  We offer regular Horsemanship, Cow Working and Ranch Roping clinics for students of all levels as well as private lessons.

Being semi-private, all boarders must be active in working on their horsemanship in the Buckaroo/Vaquero style and traditions. This can be done through weekly lessons and/or monthly horsemanship Clinics.  All horses are ridden in traditional gear, snaffle bit, hackamore, two-rein and straight up in the bridle based on the education of the horse and rider. With everyone working on similiar goals and in the same style there is no barn drama and it creates a positive learning and boarding enviroment which we are determined to keep.  Silver Spade Ranch is a family-friendly barn, full of boarders who enjoy riding together, and who are all working towards a common goal:  Building a quality partnership with their horses.

If you are interested in learning about this style of horsemanship and riding along side like minded people, we would love to hear from you.  Give us a call or send us and
e-mail to set up an appointment to come visit the barn!
