Silverhand Ranch is owned and operated by Antique and Alysabeth Anderson. Both have had a lifelong passion for animals and understand the natural therapeutic effect they have on our lives.
We believe that the relationship between a horse and their person is sacred, and no two are alike. Unfortunately, the natural language of horses and people often conflict, even when intentions are pure. We love strengthening the bonds of horses and people and seeing the amazing personal and spiritual growth that results from it.
We hope that you will join us in this journey.
Antique has been caring for, training, and riding horses for over 20 years. She has studied under many different training styles and has developed a unique style of natural horsemanship, incorporating the best methods of each.
Her personal study of horse and human psychology gives her a singular edge on empathetic instruction for each. She has a patient and warm teaching style, both for horse and owner and will make you feel comfortable, confident and in control.
She is currently a student in a two-year program for natural hoof-trimming. This method, as founded and established in Germany, is different from that of the traditional farrier or barefoot trimmer as they aim to treat the root cause of a hoof distortion to create a healthy, balanced hoof and a happy, healthy horse.
Alysabeth has had a lifelong love of horses and a talent for communicating with animals of all shapes and sizes. She has jumped at any opportunity to ride or just to be around horses since she was young.
Alysabeth is currently an advanced student of Masterson Method bodywork. This modality is a gentle, non-invasive way to assist your horse in relieving tension. Years of stress and stiffness can often be resolved in a few sessions, by relieving built-up tension in core muscles and key junctions of the body that affect the horse’s performance and quality of life.
A marketing and creative director by trade, Alysabeth oversees the behind-the-scenes portion of the business and assists with select lessons to ensure that students have undivided attention.
