For Show Lease 

Oakley is a 16.1 hand 9 year old APHA gelding that has been professionally trained in western pleasure and shown very successfully in breed shows. He is a very "point and shoot" kind of horse that knows his job. Easy to handle and makes everyone look like a pro. You cant lose with this guy!

"Tex" Incriminating Article


 Tex is a 15.2 hand 18 year old paint gelding. He is the newest member of the ranch. The picture on the left is of him when he was a yearling. He's a halter champion. Tex is a great all around horse, but he's best at western pleasure and of course halter. He is currently one of our lesson horses for all levels. What a wonderful horse!

"Duke" Chocolates Lil Zip


Duke is a 15.1 hand 8 year old APHA gelding. He is definitely a one in a million horse due to the fact he is completely deaf. His deafness does not effect him in the show ring, it actually helps because he can't hear all the distractions around him. Duke can do it all: english pleasure, western pleasure, dressage, jumping and reining. He is very playful and loves attention.

"Cash" Ima Legal Tender


Cash is an 9 year old buckskin Quarter Horse gelding. He is royally bred for halter and has preformed in countless halter shows putting a lot of points on his record. Cash is now being started under saddle to also go into english and western pleasure to widen his horizon and hopefully add some new ribbons to his wall. Cash is not being used for lessons until his training is complete.


"Clay" Barclusion

Currently Leased

 Clay is a 12 year old 15.2 hand AQHA gelding. He is the newest member of the ranch and has proven himself as quite a show horse. Clay can do both Western and English and has some of the smoothest gaits you can ask for. Very push button and easy going. Truly one of a kind. 

Owner: Y Knot Ranch 

"Godiva" Slick Storm

Godiva is a 10 year old 16 hand Rocky Mountain Horse mare. Godiva is a "been there, done that" kind of horse. Nothing phases her which makes her an awesome show horse and an even more awesome trail horse.  Godiva is used in our lesson program for intermediate riders and has also been used in theraputic riding programs.
