Allysen began visiting Greenhorn very early in life and she went for her first ride at the age of 6. As an outgoing little horse-loving child, Allysen improved her horsemanship skills and, finally, in 2017, came to work for Greenhorn as a wrangler. Not only did she have the responsibility of ensuring the safety of her guests, but she also presented as a talented and friendly young lady who participated in all of the other ranch activities; from frog racing to line dancing and expert S’more maker.
We wish Allysen all the best on her new life path at university in Colorado where she is studying Animal Science and Agricultural Business to follow the
track to become a large animal veterinarian – horses love her. If you want information on how you can support other young adults whose work will help
