Horses

Northern Plains Performance Horses

We’re building foundations at Long Pines Land and Livestock. We offer working horses for the ranch or for competition through our Northern Plains Performance Horses brand. Horses are offered, by private treaty, as weanlings, yearlings and broke prospects – and they’re getting a solid start here, on the ranch.

While our horses are backed by proven genetics, the real test comes when they’re put to work out in the pasture moving cattle or in the competitive arena. Only after they prove themselves to us do we consider their progeny worthy enough for you.

For us, good quality horses are a family tradition that runs deep. Horses have been a part of our lives for as far back as we can remember. Today, our horses continue to play a key role in our daily ranch work.

It takes a combination of talents to make a great horse. We start with legacy bloodlines known for their cow ability, sensibility, speed and agility. With help from trainers Joseph Ferguson and Justin Lawrence, our horses begin with the basics before learning their job.
