Leaders in Advocacy
In 2013, John and Cat founded of the Santa Fe County Horse Coalition (SFCHC). The SFCHC is a grass roots organization that has grown to 1,000+ members that does education and outreach to protect individual and commercial horse owners, property rights, livestock water rights, trails, culture, and Santa Fe's equestrian way of life. During Cat's Presidency (2014-2016), the SFCHC was recognized for their exceptional equine advocacy by the American Horse Council, the New Mexico Horse Council and the Back Country Horsemen of New Mexico.
Conservation and Stewardship
New Mexico Dressage Association Partnership - Paving the Way
The Trinity Ranch is a proud host of the New Mexico Dressage Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding of dressage, development of skill and excellence in its use, and to encouraging, promoting and conducting exhibitions, shows, clinics and other events by which interested people may develop their potential as riders and train their horses to the extent of their capabilities.
NMDA's June 2nd schooling show at The Trinity Ranch is just a memory now of cool and then sunny weather, lots of smiling faces, lovely horses, nervous riders, multi-generations, a neat and well-run facility, and Tim...always ready, always watching; lending a hand at a moment's notice. We hope to come back again!
- Kathleen Martin, Show Secretary, New Mexico Dressage Association
Breeder & Seller Responsibility
John, Cat & Pierce are life members of the American Quarter Horse Association. In 2014, Cat authored a rule change proposal that was accepted at the AQHA convention designed to support mare owners who cross genetically strong mares (negative 5 panel) with genetically strong stallions (negative 5 panel) by recording the test results of resulting offspring at no additional cost to the breeder. The Trinity Ranch strongly encourages small-scale, selective breeding that considers conformation, temperament, athleticism, soundness/longevity, and genetics in every pairing.
