Assistant Manager. Horse Lover. Bachelor of Science: History. Amateur Photographer.
My name is Sarah Burton. I grew up in Bountiful, Utah. Attended college at Utah State University (Go Aggies!) and graduated with a B.S. in History and a minor in Political Science. I grew up reading books about people living around and working with horses and never thought in a million years I would be one of them. I took riding lessons for a couple months when I was 8 and I have always been comfortable around horses. Attending USU put me in a place where I met the most incredible people that were kind enough to allow me to occasionally ride their horse, Rosie.
I was introduced to the Rockin’ R by a friend that had previously worked at the ranch and was excited when 5 of us that met in college were hired to work that summer just after I finished school. I graduated May 5th and 5 days later I drove into the parking lot of the Rockin’ R thinking to myself, ‘Is this REAL life? Is this really MY life?’ I was so excited to start my journey at the ranch! And I’m equally as excited to share the journey and my experiences with you!

Why am I starting this blog for the Rockin’ R?
- I want all of you to be as captivated as I am by what goes on at the ranch through good, engaging content
- I want there to be fun, exciting, new way to learn about the place and community that I have come to love so much
- I’ll be posting everything from activities to work projects to raising and training colts and everything in between
I want to post about things that interest all of YOU! I love feedback and want to provide the best information for you to prepare for your stay, reminisce of things you did at the ranch, and to help you stay a part of our Rockin’ R family after you leave!
