  • John Rannenberg

    Shortly after Rohara Arabians relocated from Miami to Orange Lake, Fla., in the early 1980s, it emerged as one of the nation’s premiere
    equestrian ventures. In 1985 John Rannenberg, resident trainer for singer Kenny Rogers’ Beaver Dam Farms, joined Rohara. In the years since, John’s expertise has netted six Arabian Professional and Amateur Horseman’s Association Awards, an APAHA Horseman of the Year title, and countless national
    championships in halter, English pleasure, country English pleasure, pleasure driving, country pleasure driving, informal combination, western pleasure, hunter pleasure, show hack, native costume, saddle seat equitation, and park.

    Today, more than two decades later, the name John Rannenberg has become synonymous with professional achievement and opportunity. Correspondingly, the name Rohara symbolizes the same lofty reputation around the world that he has been instrumental in establishing in the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.

    Since 1987, John also has had his own breeding program of purebreds and Half-Arabians, which has produced more than 20 national titles. Many times he has enjoyed being the breeder, trainer and owner at the time of the win.

    He has still found time to serve as president of the Ocala Arabian Horse Association for more than six years, heading up such activities as horse shows, training clinics, guest speakers, and the very popular Horse Lovers Tour of Marion County.

    John holds the highest level United States Equestrian Federation judges license at the regional/national level. He has enjoyed judging throughout the United States, including many regionals, the Youth Nationals and Canadian Nationals, and internationally, in Australia and at the Brazil Nationals.
