About Us

Bucky and Andrea Buckley are the owners of Blue Sky Ranches. Bucky is originally from Maine, but moved to Arizona as soon as he finished school in pursuit of his dream to “become a cowboy”.  After selling his ranch he rode his horse Chula from Arizona to Colorado to run a riding stable for the summer. In the meantime, Andrea had moved from her home state of Ohio to Colorado to work with horses after graduating from college with a degree in biology. The two met in the small town of Allenspark, Colorado and together ran a riding stable for several years. Although the two loved the mountains, Bucky was homesick for the Arizona desert and after the birth of their son, the couple decided to move to Arizona permanently and start their own riding stable in 2002. They enjoy running a small operation that gives them the opportunity to give personalized attention to all of their guests and to intimately know all of their horses. Many of the horses have been in the family for many years. In fact, Chula, the horse Bucky rode from Arizona to Colorado is still in the herd.
