Silver Spade Ranch is the home of our lessons and training program, Donohue Horsemanship. We follow the buckaroo traditions of horsemanship, and study the horsemanship taught by Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, and Buck Brannaman. We believe that horses should be treated with great respect and understanding so that we may become good working partners with our horses. In order to better understand horses so that we may offer them this respect and understanding, we must continue to grow as human beings: to become better people, if not for ourselves, then for them. With this philosophy in mind, we teach riding lessons, horsemanship clinics, cow working, ranch roping, start colts, train horses, and teach refinement education.

As part of our beef program, students at Silver Spade Ranch who are interested in learning about the process of raising livestock have the opportunity to do so, through our cow working and ranch roping clinics.
