Bred to Perform
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 fundamentals. Once a foundation is built, the horses are asked to do a variety of jobs – both in and out of the arena. Our prospects are multi-talented and showing great potential.
Our prospects receive a great foundation at the ranch. In 2016, we constructed a new training barn so we can continue their education year-round. Remember, every prospect sired by Bettin Yer Smart or Judgemental is fully enrolled in the AQHA Ranching Heritage Program!
Take a look at these up-and-comers, and contact us with questions.
Slim is such a trustworthy horse, thanks to a combination of carefully-selected genetics and the great work of our Long Pines cowboys. "Despite the terrible wind, snow, mud, ice, loose cows (which he and I chased back in), dogs, and highway traffic...Slim acted like it was nothing. Love him more already and am very impressed!"
“Izzy” is a 2014 AQHA Gray Mare
This striking gray 2014 mare is intelligent, big boned and athletic. Izzy has the combination of cow and speed that will make her a great arena contender or ranch horse. We think enough of her that she is fully nominated to AQHA’s Ranching Heritage Challenge. We decided to keep Izzy when we lost her sire. She is a main ranch mount for brandings, moving cattle and general work. There's no better way to put a solid foundation on our horses.

Reined Cow Horse Association Stallion Stakes.
