Building great competitors is what we do.

 

Human and Horse.

Local Family Farm

Rodeo

Rodeo life is our life. For some it's a living, for us it's what our family does for fun.  You might see one of us on the pro stage one day. In the meantime, we are building more rodeo horses, keeping our seasoned horses ready for the call of duty and the rodeo rig serviced and ready to go. 

Longhorn Beef

We've been turning our Longhorn herd into some mighty tasty beef. It's lean, juicy and just plain tastes good. Fuel for our active lifestyle.

Custom Operators

We are custom operators, so we own more steel than land. Chad does his best to deliver on his word and provide a good service.

Fit Horse. Fit Rider. United.

One of my personal passions is growing my connection to these majestic creatures, horses. I want to know them, and know them well. Which turns into sharing what I know to help human and horse live in harmony. There is nothing more awesome than seeing a horse and rider do what they love together. I believe we were created for the horse and the horse created for us to enjoy.

Learning on horseback at a horsemanship clinic

This weekend me and my youngest daughter are off to do some learning at a clinic. Sometimes I wonder what sort of list of 'problems' our horses would give to the clinician. Lol I'd like to stay in a horses' good graces as much as I can.

Even though there's nothing natural about a predator and a prey animal working in unison together, I still think humans and horses are sort of meant to be. It's a living and breathing miracle that you can strap the hide of a dead animal onto a horse, swing your leg over and ride off into the sunset.
