Who lives at the Blazin’ Saddles Ranch?

Blazin’ Saddles Ranch is a small family ranch on NW Minnesota.  I’m Amanda and I live here with my husband, Josh, and our two children, Tyla and Jace.  We love Jesus and have a desire to share Him with others.  We also love horses and feel blessed that God has given us these wonderful creatures that we can share with others.  Our prayer is that those who come to camps and women’s retreats will come to know Jesus and grow in their relationship with him.

Amanda ~ then and now

From what I’ve been told, I have loved and riding horses since before I could walk. I have a passion for horses and especially love working with colts and young horses and building a connection with them.  I graduated from the University of Minnesota, Crookston in 2008 with a degree in Equine Science. I am also a certified trainer under Larry Surret, MN Horse Training Academy.

I have a passion for helping others and can especially relate to youth who are searching to feel loved and women healing from unsafe relationships.  My desire is to help others heal through horses as so much of my healing has come from spending time with them.

Josh, Amanda, Tyla & Jace Tungseth

Tyla is 12-years-old and loves reading, building with Legos and solving mysteries!!  She loves our barn cats, her goats and her pony, Blaze.







Jace is eight-years-old and is our little cowboy and animal whisperer.  He loves all animals, especially his dog, Stella and his goats!
