Owners

Cade Owens
Owner / Manager

Cade is originally from the small town of Leoti, Kansas, population of approx. 1200. Cade moved with his family from Leoti to Minneapolis and has grown up working in feedlots with his dad.  He then moved to Aurora in 2011, with Jacque, after meeting in 2010. He has always shown interest in livestock and started working and showing equines and bovines at a young age. Cade started in 4-H and did some work with FFA. Although he has won several awards he doesn't believe that winning is the whole reason for working with horses; he simply loves the fact that a young horse he has worked with has come so far and is continually learning new things everyday striving to be its best. Cade has been working horses for others since the age of 22 and looks forward to new prospects.

Jacqueline Owens
Owner / Head Trainer

​Jacque is from Molino, Florida, population of approx. 1,500. She met Cade in 2010 and moved to Kansas to be with him in 2011.  She also started working with horses at a young age. Jacque started out trail riding with friends and family and then moved on to local play days and barrel shows, to Open shows, 4-H, FFA, and finally to Registered shows. She has worked herself up the step ladder to take in the knowledge of many diverse disciplines. Jacque has been an assistant trainer in Western Pleasure, English, Reining and basic fundamentals of riding. She has been studying and working hands-on with professional trainers since the age of 12, started receiving horses to exercise by the age of 14, and has been receiving horses on her own to train since the age of 20. Jacque enjoys a challenge and is very eager to start horses for showmanship, halter, and lungeline classes as wellas finishing them out for all-around. She looks forward to what is brought to her next.
