Mark and Nanette Channer own and operate the Rocking HR Ranch six miles west of Missoula, MT. We have two daughters who compete in Barrel Racing.
We greatly enjoy the Bob Marshall Wilderness, taking 3-7 day pack trips during the summer, and elk hunting during the fall.
We raise quality quarter horses with both current and foundation bred bloodlines.
Several years ago, Mark became interested in mastering the craft of custom saddle building. With many hours spent riding the western montana mountains, he realized the benefits of a well built custom saddle. Their saddle business continues to grow, having received helpful instructions from saddle makers such as Bob Trezona (Bitterroot Saddlery, bitterrootsaddleco.com) in Hamilton, MT and Dan Mayer (mayersaddlery.com) in Lima, MT.
Nanette serves as ranch manager, supervising the operational aspects of our ranch.
Mark and Nanette have had some of their performance horses trained in working cowhorse by Zane Davis and Dave Veitor, Reining with Jackson Porath, and Team Roping and Calf Roping with JD Yates.
