Spirits of the West at
the Boulder County Fair

Watch this short video of the day and share this article with friends of facebook!  What a wonderful day we had at the Boulder County Fair! We are so proud of the Spirits of the West 4H Club!

Olive, Kali, Ellie & Azteca were adopted and went to their new homes! The remaining horses- Butler, River & Headlight will stay at Little Hawk Ranch and will be available for viewing & adoption. Please email for more info or to schedule an appointment to see them.

We want to give a huge THANK YOU to the BLM and to Jessica Dabkowski of Pony Peak Stangmanship for all of her help & training mentorship for the club.

Come watch these incredible trainers,
from all over the United States,
and their mustangs as they compete
for prizes, buckles and money!

*Think* local Extreme Mustang Makeover…

We are hosting a TIP Challenge in conjunction with the Mustang Heritage Foundation and the BLM. Participants will compete in different challenges all in the spirit of promoting adoptions through showcasing the value and trainability of these national treasures!
These trained horses will be
available for adoption afterwards
at our live auction!

P.S. a decent amount of these horses
have already been started under saddle!


We are in need of help for a few ranch projects! We’ll be working mostly on fencing, so bring your tamping bars, post hole diggers and work gloves, if you have them, and be prepared for a good old ranch work day! Refreshments and lunch will be provided, so be sure to RSVP if you can make it!
