She is the owner of the ranch as well as trainer to the horses. She is educated in the health and safety of horses and acts as veterinarian as well.
She takes her responsibilities as horsewoman very seriously and finds little enjoyment in anything other than ranch work.
As a young girl, Cheyenne always dreamed of owning her own horse ranch. As she grew, her dreams grew to one day getting into the horse racing circuit. She grew up spending time at her grandfather's small ranch with a single horse that her grandfather taught her how to ride and care for. The horse was a rehabilitated wild Mustang. To this day, she has a special place in her heart for Mustangs, but Thoroughbreds have been bred to race for decades and will be her best bet to start out with.
After Cheyenne's grandfather passed away, she was surprised to find out that he had left her a rather large chunk of money and an old farm house on a large plot of land and several acres located in Long View. She left everything she knew and put blood, sweat and tears into fixing up the old farm house and barn. This was a dream of hers for many years before hand and she couldn't but feel her beloved grandfather at her side during the whole process.
After over three years of planning, demolishing and rebuilding the ranch was all that she hoped it could be and still growing!
Dr. Jay Rowley
Jay is a 35 year old licensed veterinarian. He had a practice is Appaloosa Plains before Cheyenne convinced him to move out to Long View and become Quiet Meadows Ranch's full time vet.
His previous practice specialized in equine care, but he also saw dogs and cats when especially needed. This bodes well for Cheyenne as the Bull Terrier breeding has been doing so well.
Cheyenne built a small vet facility where he lives and looks over any new additions to the ranch. There he takes blood work and examines the new addition with a fine tooth comb for a few weeks before they are released to their appropriate barn.
He also came to the ranch with his young Vladamir Heavy Draft stallion, Charlie; who keeps any new horses company while they adjust to their new home.
Kiki Potter is a women of many talents. She has come to the ranch to over see the growing yearlings that will call the Foal Barn home while they are growing and training.
She is from Long View, born from a wealthy family. She has had an elite education in the health and care of equines. She graduated in the top 1% of her class and was working at another ranch in Cloverfield when she heard about an opening at our ranch. she had been wanting to return to Long View to be closer to her family and jumped at the opportunity.
Throughout her childhood and even during the first year of college, Kiki competed in dressage and jumping competitions with her, now deceased, Thoroughbred Mya.
Now in her late twenties, she is ready to focus on work and finding someone to start a family of her own.
He has worked with horses for the past 20 years and knows just about everything that could go wrong and how to fix the problem. The horses seem to be drawn to him as he works around the ranch. He is especially good at calming them should they get spooked.
Chuck is a bit of a loner, having never married, he has stayed focused on the care of horses all of his life.
Chuck also works as "Mr. Fix it" around the ranch. Whether its on the stallion barn or not, if something breaks or needs replacing, he is the first person Cheyenne calls.
Maryann is a young girl, barely in her twenties but has made significant strides in her life to land herself a job here at Quiet Meadows Ranch. She was the top of her class at the Long View Veterinary College and has grown up around horses for her entire life. Her family is from a very small town just a few miles from Long View where they own a large commercial farm and raise a handful of various farm animals.
Cheyenne has given her charge of the Mare barn, taking care of the broodmares.
Her dream is to one day become a partner with Cheyenne and part owner of the ranch.
Roger Aldrich is Cheyenne's fiance, but works as the ranch jockey. He was hired as an assistant at the ranch just after Cheyenne moved to Long View with her horses, Baron and Dancer. After learning that Roger shared her love for horses and that he was also trained in animal healthcare and racing, she offered him the job. He gladly accepted and actually helped her design and build the ranch.
He grew up in Long View and around horses but had hoped to leave to work for a big name ranch deeply involved in the racing circuit, but when Cheyenne came to town, all that changed.
Sparks flew immediately for Roger, but it took him several years to tell Cheyenne how he felt about her. Once he did, he found out that Cheyenne had always felt the same way!
Roger passed away on 3/15/13
