2015 in Review

If you were a part of our great 2015 you will want to be sure to check out the Galleries page as it is now chock full with new photos of our grand times. And if you weren't able to join us this year, take a gander over anyway for some fun and inspiring photos which will help get you geared up for the year of horsemanship learning ahead!



Phone and Video Coaching


Need help outlining your goals and intentions for the coming season? Or want feedback about how to create a plan and path for getting there? Or maybe you just having a training question that you would benefit from some guidance on?

Emily is available year round for phone and video coaching, but this can be an especially handy resource during these colder winter months when getting together in person proves more challenging. Please visit the Phone and Video Coaching page for more information and to get yours scheduled!

As spring begins to unfold, bringing with it new signs of life, so too our lives are welcoming new life. My husband and I, and our two year old son, will soon be welcoming a new little life all together. Yes, Baby Boy Johnson #2 is to be making his debut any day now! I am feeling oh so eager to meet him and subsequently also terribly eager to be able to get back in the saddle! Missing out on the lusciousness that is spring riding is simply intolerable! 

I also write to you with some other grand news, which I have been alluding to for a few months, but can now make the announcement official! This summer, Mountain Rose Horsemanship will be on the move again, but this time to a ranch of our very own. YEEEEHAAWW!!!!

After 5 years in Omaha my husband's contract is coming to an end and in July we will be relocating to the sweet, small town of Kearney, NE. If you had told me years ago that this Colorado-born-and-raised girl would be living in Nebraska, much less staying in Nebraska, much less heading to small town Nebraska, I would have said you were crazy. But sure enough, over these 5 years we have come to really fall for the mid-west people and way of life and are feeling oh-so ready to soon enjoy the sweet and simple way of life represented in Kearney. The opportunities available there to my husband and our growing family are unprecedented, not to mention that it has provided me with the awesome ability to step into a top-notch training facility of my own!

Beginning in 2017 this ranch will become the home to what has been my vision for the past decade, the Wholeness Through Horsemanship Center, allowing me to even further expand on my intentions and passion for supporting people and horses in the pursuit of individual wholeness and ultimate partnership!

You will surely hear more updates to come in the nearing months (and beyond!), but for now, know that the ranch is big, it is beautiful, and it will ensure a fine future in my ability to continue to serve and support horse enthusiasts of all kinds in their quest for horsemanship education.

As for this coming year, I am looking forward to another terrific season on the Western Dressage circuit for myself and the clients of MRH alike. There is a great line-up of Western Dressage focused events planned throughout the year to support you and your horse in your growth and goals together, whether that be in or out of the show ring. So, do be sure to check out the Upcoming Events section below as well as the MRH Calendar for full details on these events.

I wish you and your horse some fine re-connecting time this spring and I sincerely hope you will join us for one of our upcoming events!

Misty - Versatile, Proven and Elegant AQHA Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse (Reg. Name: Awesome Misty; Reg. #:4154073)
Gender: Mare
Age: 14 (DOB: May 20, 2001)
Size: 15.0 H
Color: Bay

Temperament: Misty is an elegant mare, of quality build and with a gentle temperament. She is a very smart and sensible mare who learns quickly and has a terrific amount of try. She is both a kind and generous spirited horse and has a stellar work ethic. She is polite on the ground and an equal pleasure to ride with smooth, comfortable and balanced gaits! Misty has both extensive show and trail riding experience and has proven herself to be quiet and responsible in both environments, whether on her own or in the company of other horses. She clips, bathes, loads, ties and trailers well.

Training and Accomplishments: Misty is versatile, talented and proven in many different arenas. She was trained by Sherman Tegtmeier for reining and was campaigned in her third and fourth year in Novice and Amateur classes. She has points in each, which can be viewed on the AQHA website. She was then a working ranch horse as a 5 year old and then became a broodmare for five years producing four foals. In 2013 she was put in training with Rae Lynn Gilmore who showed her in reining and trained her for ranch horse versatility. Misty was judged the Supreme Champion Horse at the 2014 Nebraska Cattlemen's Classic after competing in conformation, ranch trail, boxing, open roping, and ranch rodeo. Misty has most recently received natural horsemanship based, partnership and western dressage training with Emily Johnson of Mountain Rose Horsemanship. Misty was shown successfully at the 2014 Western Dressage World Show placing 4th and 5th in her respective Introductory Level classes with Emily Johnson riding. In November 2014 Misty won her division of the Trail Rider Challenge at the Nebraska Horse Expo with the owner riding, further proving her terrific versatility. Misty has eye-catching movement and a free-flowing stride which makes her equally suited for english disciplines. Misty is currently showing in the 2015 season and thus far has shown with success in english dressage at Training Level and has most recently put forth more exceptional competition rides in Western Dressage at the Basic Level. Whether on the trail, in the western arena or on the english dressage court, Misty excels!

Health History: Misty has been on a regular de-worming, farrier and vaccination program throughout her life and is current in all categories. Misty is currently shod in the front.

Rider Experience: Intermediate
Price: $5500/offer
Location: Plattsmouth, NE
