| OCS was founded 1920 as a small western stable in the US. 1929, only 9 years later, my grand-grandparents took over the lead of the stables, rebuilt in Germany where they started to breed American Paint and Quarter Horses. 1963 the second ownerchange occured, as my grandparents took over OtterCreekStables. Reason was the unexpected early death caused by cancer, so my grandmother and her man took over all the work until 1993. Then my mother, Lucille Natsuka became the owner of the whole establishment as she inherited it due to her parents could not decide who will keep the ranch after teir divorce. With 20 years, 1995, my mom got pregnant with me. It surprised her because the man she met was only a one night stand. But she raised me with love. |
| At that time she was learning as an equestiran and met my stepfather Darren. He also was training to be an Equestian after he started as saddler. Together they started to build OCS back up to old glory and trained horses and riders in western. 1996 I was born and I grew up to be a horse girl. I cant imagine my life without horses. With 4 years I met my first own horse, his name was Matador and I pet his nose just in the first moments that he was born. Since then I never left his side, I watched his training and finally sat the first time on his back. I love my old boy, sadly passed away in early 2017. 2014, right about my 18th birthday my mom told me that she never liked the horse life she inherited and that she doesnt love my stepfather anymore. She wanted to go back into town and study laws. But I did not want to leave my life here. And now I am leading OCS with my stepfather.
|23.04.2017 Its a big day for OCS. After so many years of being a german riding stable we moved back to America. We are now living near Ceda City, Utha. OtterCreekStables was a very expensive facility as it stands empty now. We could not keep up with the payments needed as the local demands on riding lessons or even western horses sunk so deep that we did not even earned anything and just kept us over the line to survive. So we somehow were forced to move from here to be able to keep the horses. And we found new lands in America where we are living in Cedar City, Utah now.|
