Meet Our Friends
River Lane Ranch has many friends that they have met along the path to Healing With Horses. Those who have offered support, kindness and encouragement for our journey. We wouldn’t be where we are without them and we highly recommend them and their services.
Shenandoah Gypsy Vanner Horses
Shenandoah Gypsy Vanners Horses, owned by Barbara Williamson is nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of central Florida. Barbara has achieved an unprecedented record in the show ring and has made an indelible mark in the Gypsy Vanner world. From WR Young Latcho Lou, the most awarded Gypsy Vanner in the history and the top show mares in the country, to her illiteracy initiative and senior living visitation programs, Barbara has proven that Gypsy Vanners have gifts in and out of the show ring. We are thrilled to have Barbara’s support, friendship and guidance as we continue to strive to achieve the same standard of excellence that Barbara has established.

North Fork Gypsys
Dale and Cheryl Nygard have been the most amazing people to work with. Many of River Lane Ranch horses have come from North Fork Gypsys and we are proud to consider ourselves friends and colleagues of them. Dale & Cheryl are two people who fell in love with the Gypsy breed and set out to import, breed and achieve excellence in the Gypsies. They are one of the first breeders to bring the Gypsies to Canada, and for that, we are truly grateful. We continue to work closely with North Fork Gypsies on this journey and strive to achieve the level of breeding and excellence that they have.

Stephanie and Riley Hickey raise their own Gypsies along with manage the herd for North Fork Gypsies in Riley Alberta. Stephanie, in our opinion, is one of the most amazing horse women we know.
