Lee, Jamie & Trace Olsen
About Lee Olsen
A horseman at heart, Lee understands the whole horse. His love for horses began early, roping and training horses on his parents’ cattle and horse ranch in South Dakota from the time he could hold the reins. In 2007, he graduated from Western Dakota Tech, Rapid City, SD as an industrial electrician. He rodeoed, both amateur and professionally, for several years before becoming a farrier. He qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo three times and the Badlands Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals two times. He married Jamie (Lindsay) Olsen in 2008; she runs barrels, ropes, is a Nurse Practitioner. We moved to TX in 2010, and our son Trace was born in 2012.
Currently, Lee attends many of the biggest team ropings in Texas, Oklahoma City, OK and Las Vegas, NV. Roping is a family affair at the Olsen Ranch. He is grateful to be able to rope together with his wife, Jamie. Their son, Trace, loves roping, too.
As a AFA Certified Farrier, Lee focuses on therapeutic shoeing, using a variety of trusted methods to personalize care for each horse’s need. He specializes in shoeing the western performance horse, and serves some of the top barrel, cutting, team roping, and reigned cow horses in the industry. Additionally, he partners with veterinary clinics in providing therapeutic hoof care.
At Olsen Equine, continuing education is a priority, and is evident in Lee’s practice as well as his passion for educating horse owners. Lee is currently pursuing his Certified Journeyman Farrier licensure, and is in constant pursuit of improving the quality of equine hoof care. He teaches shoeing and trimming clinics in various locations, and provides helpful resources for equipping horse owners to best care for their horses.
