Tim Marsh is a fourth-generation cowboy. His great-grandfather, Julius O. Matthews, sold 16,000 horses per week to the government during World War I.

Tim’s father, Dwight, has been riding, doctoring, trading, training, breeding and boarding horses since 1963. Tim credits a large amount of his knowledge about horses to his father. At the age of 8, Tim broke his first pony, Dolly. Tim’s experience includes breaking and training horses, trail riding, racing, showing, jousting, trick riding, mounted shooting and roping. Tim was led by Divine Inspiration to create the live drama and film “Cowboy Trail” using his horses and his talents.


Michelle Marsh, a third-generation cowgirl, Michelle is from the North Carolina mountains and grew up attending wild west festivals and wagon trains. She welcomes Circle M City guests in addition to taking on the role Crazy Kate alongside Sheriff Tim. Carrying a stuffed beaver and opossum, Michelle lends her beautiful voice to many a folk song, including “Five Pounds of Possum,” singing:

“There’s five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight. If I can just run him over, every thing will be all right. We’ll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight; There’s five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.”
