Ruth Page and Greg Walsh – Maddi’s Friesian Ranch

Picture2Ruth Page and Greg Walsh opened their hearts and home to Between Horses and Humans in the fall of 2013. Since that time, I have had to pinch myself several times over. For all of us involved in the Between Horses and Humans program, from students to instructors, the move to Maddi’s Friesian Ranch in Gardnerville, NV is a dream come true!

It is so rare to meet people who are genuinely “real and true”, so unconditionally generous, kind, helpful and truly involved in: “Changing Lives and Healing Hearts.”

Maddi’s Friesian Ranch started in 2007 and is the largest Friesian breeder in North America. KFPS (the registry in Holland) has named Maddi’s Friesian Ranch as the number one breeder in North America every year since the award started in 2012!

Located in Gardnerville, Nevada, Maddi’s Friesian Ranch sits at the base of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – just a few minutes away from the south side of Lake Tahoe. Our program horses have 177 acres and plenty of pasture area so they can get out and be horses!

Everyone who is a part of Between Horses and Humans would like to thank Ruth Page and Greg Walsh. We wish them all the success with their breeding operation that they have brought to Between Horses and Humans!

Between Horses and Humans owns two well-trained and loving horses and has the privilege of using several privately-owned horses generously provided by their owners.  You’re invited to read more about our horses at our Meet the Horses page.


Instructors are primarily volunteers who have a heart for service, horses, and improving the lives of children.
