Morgan McCracken Johnson was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. She started pee wee rodeo at the age of 5, and obtained her pro card at the age of 13 on her horse, Blue. Morgan and Blue had an amazing PRCA time and broke 13 arena records throughout high school and pro rodeo. During this time period Morgan had amazing opportunities to work with Fallon Taylor, Hailey Kinsel, Lisa Lockheart, to name a few! The year she was heading to the National Finals Rodeo, Morgan lost Blue in a very tragic accident and stopped riding for a while. During that time, Morgan's Dad was running a breeding and training facility, so Morgan started training and breaking horses. She started a lesson program using the horses that she was breaking, and thus discovered her love of working with kids.
Morgan met her husband Brian in December 2017. Together they dreamed of running a rodeo arena, but they never imagined that it would be halfway across the country! When they came to NJ they saw the need for a western ranch for teaching, and rodeos. They're so excited to have created a happy place for kids, and a place of relief for adults who take lessons.
"I love nothing more than seeing the lightbulbs go off for the kids I'm teaching, and the smiles on their faces when they're on the horses... it is priceless!"
