Hi, I'm Jane Doe
Susie Flenniken was raised on the family's polled hereford ranch in Central Oregon. Raising and showing registered polled hereford cattle. But her passion was horses and at a very young age began showing horses in 4-H and soon AQHA Youth shows. She attended Oregon State University but soon was side tracked into a new event, reined cow horses. Winning Oregon Quarter Horse Association year end high point awards in reining and working cow horse. Susie credits her parents for sending her to a trainer and allowing her to travel as a youth throughout the West Coast and Canada to open horse shows in reining and cow horse. Susie also caught the cutting horse bug and began working for cutting horse trainers and showing cutting horses as well, moving to Texas to pursue her passion for cutting. She went on to marry a team roper who had qualified for the NFR and caught the team roping bug.
Susie's lifetime dream to own her own stallion and breed and raise her own futurity prospects became a reality and they stood three AQHA stallions on their Sisters, Oregon ranch, raising and training/selling the offspring. Susie pioneered selling horses on the Internet in the late '90's and sold horses to Italy, Germany, Austria as well as nationwide. While still training and showing cutting and reined cow horses herself, she traveled with her daughter, Liz to her high school rodeos where Liz competed in Team Roping and Cutting.
Susie won the Northwest Cutting Horses Association $10,000 Reserve Non-Pro Futurity championship in 1990 amongst other awards in cutting and reined cow horse events. Not one to settle down with just one event Susie began her career as a Film and Television Wrangler, Trainer and stunt woman in major motion pictures, television and commercials. All the traveling Susie did, especially hauling between Oregon and Texas, she knew where to lay over safely at night and which routes to take. But there were times the weather didn't allow the usual routes so it became difficult to find where to stay with horses on a new route. She hopes to help make CowboysHighway.com the "go-to" site for all who travel with horses.
