Star and Hot Bonanza get aquainted while playing in the large arena.

Follow the leader.

Ranger oversees that all is going well.

Thanks to so many who have inquired as to how Cowboy Up! Instructor Chris Chaisson is ...
It has been a very long hard road through the VA system since his accident in October of 2012, however, Chris is a resilient one and embodies the spirit of what this program is all about and his ability to Cowboy Up!  After a long time with his leg in a halo with painful pins trying to set his leg, Chris came to terms with having part of his leg amputated this October.  Chris' indomitable spirit has him preparing for his prosthetic and coming up to the ranch to experience some horse magic.  It will not be long before this strong man will be back in the saddle ready and willing to help instruct new incoming Cowboy Up! participants and take "point" in helping us write  a new chapter for our combat warriors.

Chris " back at the ranch "meets our newest four-legged instructor.

Star was very protective of Chris...

...keeping new guy at bay.

Star let's new guy in for just a little bit...

Gets a quick sniff of Doc...

...okay, that's enough!

Second time playing together and both rolling together is a great sign of a good friendship!
