Born and raised a Colorado native, Brittnee Woodward has been training and rehabilitating horses for the past 12 years. Obsessed with horses from a very young age, her first job was working for Sherry Snead at the SS ranch in Elizabeth mucking stalls and learning as much as she could about horsemanship. She later became versed in finishing barrel horses at X2 Ranch in Sedalia, CO, where she helped rehabilitate and restart horses that had come from bad circumstances. As her knowledge of horse training grew, Brittnee was offered a job with the Denver Polo Club training Thoroughbreds.
In 2007 Brittnee married Charles P. Whitehead and also purchased her first horse, a gelding named ‘Romeo’. It was at this time she realized her heart was in rescue horses. She was invited to work as a volunteer trainer for Zumas Rescue Ranch and successfully started several horses for the non-profit.
Brittnee continued to purchase project horses, including her local barrel race winning gelding ‘Ruger’. The team went on to win Reserve Champion at the T4 Barrel Race. During this time she also took on many private rescue horses to train and re-home. In 2013 Brittnee was asked to train rescue horses for Denkai Animal Sanctuary and to join the Colorado Horse Rescue Network as a board member.
Brittnee has consistently devoted her time, skills, energy and knowledge to help the Rescue Network. She can be depended on to donate her training to any rescue horse in need, as well as her truck and trailer for transport. Brittnee is well known for traveling to rescues and doing weekend clinics to help start horses, or simply do problem solving. She enjoys passing her knowledge on to others so that they may help themselves.
Brittnee and Charles purchased a large training and boarding facility in Conifer in the spring of 2015, known as Old Glory Ranch.
