Roger Shinnick

grounds / MAINTENANCE team lead

Roger began volunteering at WNCR when he retired five years ago. Growing up in Chicago, the only horse he ever saw was the one pulling the vegetable wagon!  Being up close and personal with horses at the ranch was pretty amazing for him.  After taking several ground work classes, Roger began working regularly with Max, a colt who is now in his forever home.

Today, Roger leads the Grounds and Maintenance Team, where he stays busy with a variety of tasks keeping the grounds and structures sound and safe for our horses. He is a hard-working man dedicated to an important and big job at the ranch.  He welcomes extra hands interested in joining him!
