We give all the glory to God and credit to our mentors Buck Brannaman, Joel Connor, Ricky and Sarah Quinn, and Issac Johnson.

Dalton Duncan

Dalton grew up in Ellensburg, Washington, where he spent time working on his family’s registered angus ranch. Most summers he experienced the wild frontier of Alaska with his father fly fishing and hunting. His time spent in Alaska sparked his interest in aviation. Dalton attended Big Bend Community College where he graduated with a Commercial Pilot’s license and an Associate’s Degree in Science.

Building on his ranching experience, during college Dalton worked for the Beard Ranch where he was exposed to horsemen Kyler Beard, Peter Campbell, Joel Conner and Ricky Quinn. During this time, he discovered his passion for horsemanship. After graduating from college, Dalton pursued a childhood dream and strengthened his connection with nature as he hiked across the country on the Pacific Crest Trail. Upon return from his PCT journey he began working at the Lazy U in Hershey, Nebraska with Ricky Quinn. Here he absorbed an abundance of knowledge in all things of ranching and horsemanship. Today Dalton runs Whiskey Heights Equine in his home town of Ellensburg Washington with his wife Caitlyn and daughters Blaque and Sonora. He is dedicated to being the best father, husband, horseman and disciple of Christ.
