The Dry Creek BrandThe Dry Creek Brand  A horse with this brand speaks for itself.  Our horses must earn the right to carry this brand. 

Over 80 years horse training experience in both English and Western disciplines, from show to rodeo!

Bob Redo  Bob was raised near Chick's Riding Stable in Long Island, New York. The owner, Chick, bought horses through Milton Potter and Ned Smith. Most of these horses came from out west by rail, particularly from the sale barn in Fort Smith, Arkansas and were then shipped by rail to the east. The boys who worked at the stable were in charge of determining which horses were broke to ride as they disembarked from freight trucks that hauled these horses from the rail yard to the stable. The horses that were broke to ride became hack horses. Chick's stabled over 200 horses during the height of the livery stable era.

When Bob left Chick's he started breaking and training at his own barn. He bought and sold western pleasure and calf roping horses. With wins too numerous to mention, his favorites were the Florida Gold Coast and the Quarter Horse Congress in Western Pleasure.

Bob is truly a walking encyclopedia in the world of horse training, but prefers to now spend his time in his saddle shop creating custom works of art for gunslingers.

Continuing Education:
The Redo team history includes training and competing in the following disciplines: halter, showmanship, western pleasure & horsemanship, English Pleasure & equitation, reining, working cow horse, ranch work, team roping, calf roping, dressage, eventing, stadium jumping, trail riding, overall training, speed events including barrels and poles, cowboy mounted shooting. 

Horsemanship is a simple word for the continuing education and personal evolution of the rider. This complex process requires both hundreds of hours spent in the saddle and studying the horse. Under the watchful eyes of many great horsemen I continue my quest toward becoming a horseman. It is to these horsemen that I will be forever grateful. Every success my horses earn is due to them. They truly are the ones who deserve the credit. Thank you and those masters whose paths I someday hope to cross�past, present and future.Kim Redo
