Tyson was born and raised on a busy, suburban street in Bountiful, Utah, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a cowboy. Tyson always loved the idea of farm life and owning his own horse. Being a determined person he decided one day to buy a horse, since he wasn’t getting any younger. As you might imagine this included many learning opportunities and a few bruises. Fast forward a few years while looking for a location to board his horse, he met Garrett. At the time neither of them knew that this connection would lead to Double Diamond Hill Ranch as we know it today. Being someone who did not grow up with horses Tyson loves encouraging more suburban or closet cowboys to follow their dreams. If he isn’t working to tell more people about what we do at DDH Ranch, he’s probably playing guitar or hanging out with his young family.
