Meet the Team!

25 plus years ago with our mutual love for horses,  Tony and I pursued our dream to own our own ranch. The saying goes "if your dreams don't scare you, they arent' big enough". Well, we were both nervous, but wanted it too bad not to try! Together we raised two fine young men that are talented Cowboys, hundreds of horses that have gone on to be great mounts for wonderful people in various disciplines, taught many people how to enjoy their equine partners and shown our own ranch raised horses to earn Local, Regional and National titles in the Cow Horse Industry.

Our family owned business is run on a 40 acre ranch, nestled in the historic hills of San Timoteo Canyon, we are surrounded by Conservation Land, so there are thousands of miles of trails to ride with year long running water in the creek!

Adrian Mendoza

 

Adrian Mendoza raised right along with the horses, has followed in his dad's footsteps and began training horses in 2010. His love is roping, and he is an earner of multiple titles in many of the So Cal Roping events.  He puts a good start on a horse, and with his patience and encouragement, helps beginner riders learn confidence and safety either on their horse or ranch horses.  He offers basic horsemanship, roping lessons on the entertaining "skippy" and then onto live cows.

He is now shoeing on his own and accepting clients.
