Meet the Staff
Cecily and Terry Klingman
Cecily and Terry Klingman purchased Riversong Ranch in the fall of 2006, and have created an outstanding horse boarding facility. Their interest in horses started 25 years ago, and they have owned and loved many different breeds. Cecily is currently enjoying Icelandic horses. The Klingmans have created a place for horses, where value for each horse's comfort and care is paramount. They have also created a supportive and friendly community for the boarders and staff. They look forward to continually improving and upgrading the facility as they work to provide a safe and happy place where people can learn and enjoy their beautiful horses and ponies.
Ranch Manager - Corey Hase
Corey and Carla Hase moved to Durango from Lawrence, Kansas looking for a more outdoors lifestyle. They fell in love with the horses and boarders at Riversong Ranch after Corey was hired in September of 2011. Corey and Carla are currently learning more about the philosophy and practices of natural horsemanship techniques. Corey was raised with horses on his family's farm in Haven, Kansas and prior to Riversong Corey owned and operated his own carpentry business.
Corey is committed to ensuring Riversong Ranch remains a premier horse boarding facility were in a supportive and caring setting, special attention is paid to each horse's unique needs, and each boarder's focus is known and requests are heard. Corey strives to make Riversong a fun, safe, and peaceful facility for horses, boarders, visitors and staff to enjoy.
Assistant Manager - Anna Janey
Anna moved to Colorado from Cologne, Germany, where she grew up riding horses and competing in regional Reining shows. In Durango, Anna studied Theatre and History at Fort Lewis College, and now she focuses on creative writing whenever she and her husband, Chase, are not working with their horses and dogs. Anna is committed to caring for the horses and people at Riversong Ranch by ensuring their safety and comfort.
Obviously, it requires a lot of hands to make Riversong Ranch successful day after day. The folks below all help out either part-time or seasonally. We appreciate the knowledge, enthusiasm and good old "elbow grease" they provide!
