Saddle Horses


2005 Bay gelding

Rudy is a 15.3 HH light bay gelding who is 15 years old. He can do anything on the ranch and is considered the best roping horse there. He's safe and fun to ride. He's very "cowy," so he will correctly cut the cows as long as you let him work and just enjoy the ride.

Out of the
Blue Valentine line, he has all the great ranch horse qualities of that line.

JJ Peptolena (JJ)

AQHA #:5645155

2014 Blue roan gelding

JJ is a 16 HH, blue roan, six-year-old gelding. He's great at roping and is a good example of the cross we are breeding. He has the Peptoboonsmal cow horse line on the top and the Blue Valentine ranch horse line on the bottom.   The Peptoboonsmal line is the quick, sprinter, working cow horse. The Blue Valentine line is the good bone, go-all-day, strong ranch horse. Basically, we are breeding for a "decathlete horse" that can do everything.


Grulla gelding

Dollar is a 15.2 HH grulla gelding who also has Blue Valentine lines. He is gentle and smooth. He has been ridden in the mountains and on the ranch and can handle the rough country.

Blondes Guns and Shine (Mocha)

AQHA #: 5189668

2007 Brown mare

Mocha is a 13-year-old mare who is 15 to 15.1 HH. She is a safe and gentle horse that we use for lessons, but she is also one of the quickest and most cowy horses on the ranch. She has a trot you can ride all day - a really good thing when it comes to moving cows. 

She is out of the
High Brow Cat cutting line of horses. He is one of the top three sires of cutting horse champions. Mocha has a lovely spin and sliding stop, but most of the time we don't need to use them on the ranch.
