The Free Range Rodeo is an ever evolving experiment in living the questions – living outside the box – exploring what it feels like to follow our dreams, live our passions and encouraging others to do the same.
On the 10th of October, 2011 (Columbus Day) Sea G Rhydr and Gryph Wulfkil left the Apple Farm in Philo, CA – heading out to rediscover America on horseback. Sea was riding Jesse James, who had served her faithfully all summer as her guide (and commuter) pony at Highland Ranch where she had been working as a trail guide. Gryph was riding Vaca Suerte and Saint Finehorn carried the pack. We followed the Navarro River West to the Pacific, said hello to the Ocean and turned our faces to the East.
Much has happened in the past year and a half! Read the blog for the full story. Gryph left in March, 2012 to practice her circus skills (aerial silks dancing) in Boulder and Oakland and is currently in Austin, Texas. The long term goal of Sea’s Journey is Minot, Maine on 8. November, 2013. (and then the writing of a book!)
Sea G Rhydr – 48 – Dutch/German – 6′ tall – likes Morning Mochas, long hot baths and Scrabble. Not keen on heat stroke, wet boots or redundancy.
Gryph Wulfkil – 24 – Scotch on the rocks – 5’8″ – likes flying through the air, climbing trees, people and jungle gyms – and her solitude. She’s not a fan of dirty socks, drive-by honkings or Spam.

Finehorn – 13 – Norwegian Fjord – 13.3h – loves belly scratches, new flavors and Gryph. Not so hot on pony rides, alfalfa or hot weather.
Luna Jack – 4 – Quarter Horse – 14.3h – loves cuddling, new experiences and sweet feed. Hates pigs, sows, boars and piglets and is still figuring out apples, carrots and treats in general.
