Ronda was born and raised in Northern California. Her family has been in the beef business since she was a little girl. As a child, Ronda spent many hours on horseback following cattle. She started team roping in her teens. She also rode reined cow horses and competed in stock dog trials for many years. She’s an avid hunter with her favorite being hunting elk with her bow. Several years ago, she combined her love of horses and mules with her love of hunting and started Apple Bar Outfitters. She prides herself in a solid string of pack mules that she considers her friends and partners in this endeavor.
Ronda’s daughter, Kaleigh has been brought up in the family beef business. There’s rarely a day that goes by that you won’t find Kaleigh horseback for something. When she isn’t on the trail with Apple Bar Outfitters, you will find her hunting herself or breaking colts. Her proficiency with the livestock makes her an exception asset to our business.
Family friend and “wrangler extraordinaire”, Tom has been working with Apple Bar Outfitters since 2009. Tom’s knowledge of various Northern California mountain ranges as well as a vast number of the trails they provide make him a valuable member of our team. Tom’s “hard core hunter” tendencies make him an asset to our clients during deer season. Tom is an incredible hand with the riding and pack stock.
