The Bar F Ranch story (Rob, Pam and John Ryon Foster). Our passion is our business.
Rob was born and raised in Arlington, Texas. Having a natural feel for horses, he started riding at a young age. He gained experience working and apprenticing with multiple world class trainers, such as Cleve Wells. Not only did Rob learn a lot while working for Cleve, he was also lucky enough to meet his wife, Pam. “I was at the Solid Gold Futurity, looking at a horse that Cleve had for sale. Rob was working for him, so of course we met each other while I was looking at the horse. That was August of 1991 and we were married in September of 1992,” Pam said. “Oh, and I bought the horse!”
Rob takes a lot of pride in the fact that all of the horses he has shown successfully have either been hand-picked or trained by him. He feels strongly that for a horse to be successful in any discipline, it all comes down to starting the young horse the right way. As a champion cutting horse trainer, Rob offers services to produce winners. He will start your horse off right with a training regiment that is tailored to meet your performance goals. Horses trained by Rob speak for themselves. He offers pro and non-pro training.
Pam was born and raised in Pennsylvania. She has a BA from Kent state University, married Rob in 1992 and became a mother in 1997 to John Ryon. She had a successful career showing as a youth with highlights including All American Quarter Horse Congress Champion on Carbon C Miss and a Honor Roll Champion Western Pleasure that same year. The following year was again Honor Roll Champion but in Hunter Under Saddle with Guns Flash Bull. As an amateur and non-pro, Pam really enjoyed showing futurity horses and now riding cutting horses, accumulating LTE in NCHA of $118,397. Horses have always been a special part of her life. “They keep me busy, as does Rob and John Ryon.”
