Horses in Training

The horses that enter the Great Geldings program will spend anywhere from a few months to a year or more transitioning from track life to ranch life. Many hours of rehab and training go into each horse and we strive to develop them for their best suited career...be that in ranch riding, rodeo, dressage or eventing.

 

This page is reserved for horses still working through the training program for the Gate to Great program.  As they finish up the training program (more info on that HERE), they will be transitioned to the "For Sale" page as finished horses available for sale.  If you are interested in a particular horse that is still in training, please contact us. 

 

This page and the available geldings will change often as horses enter or complete the training program.  Bookmark us and check back often!

Forty

2006 Brown Gelding

15.3 Hands

This hard-knocking son of Posse had over 50 races in a seven year career. He's had the winter to freshen and begins ranch work in spring of 2019.

King

King

2012 Bay Gelding

15.3 Hands

This well made boy won across the pond and in the states, running on the turf. His pedigree sports heavy hitters such as Danehill, Gone West and Northern Dancer. A super people-oriented boy with "Oh Wow" eye appeal, he has taken to ranch work like a duck to water.

 

Mitt

Mitt

2006 Dark Bay Gelding

15.3 Hands

We love these old warrior geldings and this one is no exception. Mitt doesn't sport a fancy pedigree, but had what it took to stick around the races for a ten-yr. career that saw him claim 13 wins from 89 starts. A thick-bodied boy with all the makings of a good ranch or pleasure mount and a cute face to boot!

Leroy

Leroy

2013 Bay Gelding

15.3 Hands

From the sire line that produced Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom! "Leroy" might be a plain, brown package, but he has a lot of personality, likes attention and wants to please. We'll introduce him to all that ranching entails this summer, so watch for updates on our Facebook page.

Special Jo

 Special Jo

2010 Bay Gelding

16. Hands

From the sire-line that produced 2018 Triple Crown winner, Justify, this "Special" guy liked having his win-photo taken and was popular in the claim box. He will have a few light rides tracking cattle this fall and should be ready to go to work for next calving season (spring 2019). Watch for updates on our Face Book page this fall.
