OUR STORY

   

 

 

 

 

 

WHO WE ARE

 

 

Forest Forever Horse Logging is a family run

business located in Missoula, Montana.

Richard and Alex Clemow run the business from

their 27 acre farm nestled in the mountains

outside of Missoula.

 

Forest Forever Horse logging began 8 years ago

when Richard decided to thin the trees on his

property. Richard wanted a low impact way to

thin his land and settled on horse logging as

a solution. After looking into horse logging

Richard decided he would buy his own team of

horses.

 

Alex, Richards wife, already own two saddle

horses and immediatly began helping Richard

research the matter. The Clemows purchased

a team of Belgian Draft Horses and began

thinning their property.

 

The Clemow's eventually expanded and

bought another draft horse and a sawmill.

They began getting calls to log other

properties.

 

The Clemow's joined the Montana Draft

Horse and Mule Association and began

participating in expos and shows across

Montana.

 

Now the Clemow's are known by many in

Montana and among the Draft Horse

 community as established and skilled

Draft Team owners.
