Business Profile

Running O Horsemanship

 

June 2013 issue  

 

Running O Horsemanship, Dusty Roller, Hooper, WA

 

     rainer and Clinician Dusty Roller began life on a cattle ranch in Odessa, Washington, and grew up riding horses and working cattle. After high school, Dusty attended farrier school and started his own business shoeing and training horses for ranches.

      In 2001, Dusty attended a Buck Brannaman colt-starting clinic and found a new direction to move his life in. He used his newly-learned natural training methods on an untrained broncy colt, and four days later was riding him.

      “After Brannaman’s clinic, I completely changed my style of training. I was inspired by this new technique to start my own business training colts and subsequently sold my horseshoeing business to a friend.”

      Dusty then attended a Curt Pate clinic, and studied vaquero horsemanship with Richard Caldwell.

      Until 2008, a steady day-riding and training business kept Dusty busy. That year, he was chosen to participate in the Extreme Mustang Makeover in Fort Worth , Texas . He picked up his mustang in Nevada and spent 100 days training the previously untouched gelding, eventually placing 9th out of 200 competitors.

      Dusty now lives on the Running O, a working cattle ranch in Hooper, Washington, along the Palouse River south of Spokane, where he trains outside colts, puts a finish on bridle horses, and trains Quarter Horse geldings and mares that he offers for sale as experienced ranch horses.

      Dusty holds colt starting, ranch roping and horsemanship clinics across the “ Inland Empire .” He also volunteers to help Spokane County 4-H kids learn horsemanship and ranching skills.

      Dusty Roller is a great teacher of both people and horses. Contact him about holding a clinic in your area, training a colt, or finishing your bridle horse. 509-721-0689, runningocoordinator@gmail.com. For more information, or to see ranch horses for sale, visit www.therunningo.com.
