Cutting Horse Training/Management 

This service encompasses the process of training a cutting horse.  From the day we begin to break them to ride, on into their years of maintaining and caring for a finished show horse.  This includes board, training, management of care, overseeing all the necessities of keeping a horse in the right mental and physical shape to preform.  Most horses require at least two years of cutting training before it is expected to be ready to compete.  We only take a limited number of horses and when spots become available they fill up fast.  Call for more information on rates and availability.



Lessons are always included when you have a horse in training with us.  However, we also offer lessons on the flag and on cattle to those who do not have horses in training with us.  We keep a very flexible schedule to accommodate almost anyone’s availability.  Essentially we want every person that wants to cut, to have an opportunity to do it.  If we can be available to you when it fits your schedule we will. Lessons can be taken on the flag or cattle.  Cattle lessons include a $175 per month cattle charge.



From limited aged event horses to weekend horses and every thing in between, we usually have a lot of really nice horses available for purchase!  When you’re in the market to buy, give us a call.  If we don’t have the right thorse for you we will help you find it. We care just as much about your success after the sale, as we do getting the sale.
