A Jackson Hole, Wyoming ranch, known for its historic beauty and it’s horse whispering demos, said no to rap music last week after hosting a Kanye West event. The Diamond Cross Ranch said while Kayne’s listening party for his new album “Ye” was great exposure for their event business, it drew many complaints from the neighbors.
Owner Jane Golliher told The Blast that the event was a learning experience for the ranch, which hosts numerous corporate events and weddings each year in their world class event center. Kanye apparently decided to take the music outside though, with the volume reaching up to 120 decibels and the performance going late into the night. The owners said they have no ill feelings toward the musician but might now limit performances to day shows.
The Diamond Cross Ranch is a privately owned, historical working cattle ranch with unobstructed views of the Grand Tetons. The ranch boarders the Grand Teton National Park and Teton National Forest.
Jane’s husband Grant travels around the world using the art of Horse Whispering to illustrate the keys to healthy trusting relationships. The Gollihers own and maintain a herd of well trained horses on the Diamond Cross Ranch. The troubled horses used in Grant’s demonstrations are typically owned by third-parties that come from all over the country seeking his help. In many cases, these horses have been given up on and Grant is their last hope. During a typical demonstration, Grant works with the horse for one-hour in front of the audience, explaining the techniques he is using to communicate with the horse.
The Diamond Cross Ranch Event Center was constructed in 2003 for the Gollihers to share the ranch’s historic beauty. Each year the ranch hosts corporate groups, weddings, and other events in the ranch’s 14,000 square foot facility. In addition to the Event Center, they are able to setup large event-tents and performance stages to meet the needs of guests.
