Christa and Pinto Miremadi were married in Dec, 2000. By 2001 they had started a family business together with Pat and Andy Dymond at a small boarding and lesson barn in Richmond BC. In 2006 they all moved to bigger and better things, a beautiful 20 acre property in the Fraser Valley which they called home for the next 12 years. It was there that they realized their dreams of creating a boarding and training ranch that would have its foundations in horsemanship and would put the horse's mental and physical health needs first.
In 2014, they partnered with their good friend, Amy Hay, in expanding the educational aspect of The Rock'n Star Ranch and became the home of Kheiron College of Equine Therapy: a place where students receive a well rounded education including therapeutic techniques, anatomy, saddle fit, alternative modalities, conditioning and handling, business planning, nutrition and much, much more!
In 2015 they added a beautiful 50 acre chunk of raw land just outside Kamloops BC to the facilities and the experiences The Rock'n Star Ranch has to offer. This provided them with the chance to offer the horses in their care just a little more and was what inspired THE BIG MOVE in December of 2018.
On December 1st, 2018, Christa and Pinto pulled up their roots and jumped into the wind as it blew them east and to the home of the new Rock'n Star Ranch, 167 acres of wide open spaces, rolling, grassy hillside and BIG sky in Pritchard BC!!! This new location will provide them with the opportunity to focus more on horsemanship and continuing education as well as provide a more diverse learning environment to both the humans and the horses who choose to explore horsemanship with these two dedicated individuals.
"It is our intention to offer our horses and the horses we care for the most natural lifestyle we can while still enjoying their partnership. We are thrilled to be able to offer something positive to both the horses and the humans we are fortunate enough to work with. Offering everything from a place to board your horse to ongoing horsemanship support in the form of training, clinics and developmental riding lessons, we've created a welcoming place to pursue developing your horsemanship, your riding skills, and the relationship with your horse."
