Along with his wife LaRhea Ryan is proud to raise his son Sage on the family farm. While Cole Training Stables today focuses on Ranch Versatility, Cowhorse, and rope horses they continue to train and coach nonpros and youth in a variety of events including English, halter, western pleasure, and western all around. “We’ve always had a very diversified clientele so the rise in popularity of the Ranch Riding and Ranch Horse Versatility fit us to a Tee.” Horses and Riders trained and coached by Ryan and Craig have consistently placed in the top five at the AQHA VRH World show, and have made multiple finals appearances and top fives at the AQHA and AQHYA world championships shows.
