Hi, I’m Briana Bailey and I live in Steamboat Colorado where my husband Sean and I own and operate our training business, Bailey Barrel Horses and Colt Starting. In addition to training I enjoy teaching lessons to our local youth riders. We spend our falls in the wilderness running a local hunting outfit. From running down the alley at pro rodeos, to riding all day in a snowstorm to hunt camp, our Greeley hats always withstand the job we’re set out to do. Thank you for making the most comfortable custom hats out there.
Christ Follower. Defensive End and #33 for the Northern Colorado Bears. Texan and patriot. Business Administration with a Marketing Emphasis📚.University of Northern Colorado. I am a student-athlete at the University of Northern Colorado.
I am currently studying Business with and emphasis on Marketing and I play Defensive End for the Northern Colorado Bears🏈. I am from Flower Mound, TX, and I graduated from Liberty Christian Highschool in Argyle. I began my college education as a declared Finance Major, however after further research into my desired career-focus and path, I decided to change my major to Business Marketing, something I am far more passionate about. Outside of the classroom and Football Field, I can be found hunting, fishing, or enjoying the great outdoors🏹🎣. I also have a passion for cooking and have developed a love of reading since entering my college years📚. I believe that if you aren't growing, you aren't trying.
While attending college 13 hours from home can be challenging, I am extremely grateful for the opportunities, memories, and friends I have made while here. Although Colorado is much colder than Texas, the experience has been wonderful. Words cannot do justice to my time here. Being a part of the Monfort College of Business, and the UNC Football team have both shaped me into the man I am today. The biggest lesson I have learned over my four years of being here is that with hard work and drive, anything is feasible and achievable.
Howdy, I'm Caree and I grew up on my families cattle ranch in gorgeous Livermore, CO. I joke that I married the boy from the ranch next door out of convenience because I've never wanted to be anywhere else. My husband Townsend and I now manage my families ranch, Trails End Ranch, along with his families guest ranch, Cherokee Park Ranch. Townsend is also an exceptionally talented horse trainer. My greatest passion is photography and I spend my days on a festively plump horse with a camera slung over my back, a great hat pulled down on my head, and an entire herd of dogs in tow. I want my photography to reflect the beauty, necessity, and rough nature of the western lifestyle. I am thrilled to be a member of the Greeley Hat Works team and take pride in representing such an authentic and respectable brand.

Jesse enjoys reaching out to the community with a proactive presentation on our cattle industry and through social media.
He currently works with other cattle producers communicating with consumers on the importance of beef, not only in our diets, but also what our industry represents financially to our local economy. He loves stressing the sustainability of our industry, the safety and nutrition of beef and most of all, telling stories of the people in our business. Jesse has noticed that most of the public wants to know more about the people behind the beef they eat. He received his BS degree in Ag Economics from Fresno State University.
Jesse also enjoys raising and showing show cattle with his daughters Lesly, Cameron, and granddaughter Demi. His hobbies include socializing, defending our rural way of life and standing up for our great country.

Hey y'all. My name is Travis and I was born and raised in Arvada Colorado. I am currently a student athlete at North Carolina State University and I have proudly been repping GHW since I was in high school! I was not born into western wear. In fact, I grew up a city boy the majority of my life in Arvada, Colorado. But as soon as I got my driver's licence I expanded my horizons. I would visit my cousin every weekend during the summer in Kersey where I found a deep connection for a country lifestyle. It was in that where I found myself in Greeley Hat Works looking to buy my first hat years ago.
The hospitality I felt that first trip in from Trent and the rest of the crew had a massive impact on me. There are not many places anymore where someone completely out of their element can feel so welcomed. That is something I can 100% support and get behind. Because of that I now am on my third straw hat and about to come in over Christmas break to get my first felt. Working with Greeley Hat Works not only means an amazing opportunity but also associating myself with the best company I have ever purchased from.
