Gate To Great Horses

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.


Once the horses go through the Gate To Great program, they are ready for their new career. Find out which horses we have for sale and which are in the training program below. If you are interested in a particular horse that is still in training, please contact us. 


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