The Horses

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."
Winston Churchill

The ranch is home to over 110 head of horses. The horses live on the ranch year round. The herd consists of approximately 80 guest horses, 20 performance horses, brood mares and new foals every spring. The ranch does not lease outside horses, this is for the protection of the herd, and the riders.

The Dude String
The horse to guest ratio is almost 2-1, giving the Wrangler the ability to find you the perfect horse. While at the ranch your horse will be just that, your horse. Once the Wranglers have found your perfect horse, you will have the same horse and tack for the duration of your stay. Horses range from kids horses that Wrangler refer to as "bomb proof" too younger horses that are more suitable for more experienced riders. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished rider your perfect horse waiting for you.

“I own a lot of horses “say Jeff “But the most valuable horses I own are the kids horses. It takes a special horse for me to put a young person on. And I am fortunate to have some of these great horses."

Performance Horse
The ranch is also home to Beckley Reining horses. Jesse Beckley, professional trainer, rides and trains performance horses at the ranch on a daily basis. Beckley Reining is home to some of the finest quarter horse blood lines in the world. Several of the performance horses are born and raised on the Ranch.
