Leasing a Peace Valley Ranch Horse
We know that "they" say you can never have too many horses - well, we do! That's why we started our leasing program. Horses need a purpose - and you want to lease before you try the ownership option! Its a match made in heaven!
Here is just a taste-test of the horses that we have available for lease. Each comes with its own story so clicking on a name below will take you to the story about the horse:
Smokey is a grey 16hh registered Quarter Horse gelding.
Smokey came to us in 2010 at 5 years old from auction - but at the auction we were able to chat with his trainer - who I must say did an excellent job starting him. Smokey has excellent ground manners, is fabulous solo on trail, will do anything for you including cattle work! With undivided attention, this boy will make someone very happy!
Alvero is a grey 16.3hh Andalusian cross.
Alvero came to us in December 2013. We believe he is 15 years old. He does have dressage background, is lovely on trail alone or in a group. Alvero is not the bravest boy in the group - he is just getting use to cows. He will make a bit of a challenging but very fun ride for someone!
Grace is a lovely, smooth typical little quarter horse mare. Grace stands at 15hh and brings interesting wisdom to her ride.
Grace came to us from a barnyard where she had been spending time. Grace has been with us for 15 years and is closing in on 25. She makes great teacher for the less confident rider!
Sign is a very pretty dark bay Thoroughbred. At 14 years old, she stands 15.3hh
Sign did have a racing career as Sign of Honour however as she was not a competitive as her racing mates, her career was short-lived! Sign arrived at the Ranch by-way-of a potential brood-mare farm - but we got her before she was covered. Sign has turned out to be a very brave cow-pony! and when pushed into competition always wants to lead! She is more suitable for an intermediate rider.
Jasper is a very handsome 15hh bay gelding - we believe he is a Quarter Horse cross.
We were very fortunate to find out Jasper's timeline - at 3 he was originally purchased "from the meat truck" for a very lucky young lady who trained him and took him into the show/eventing circuit. When school got in the way and choices had to be made, Jasper found his way to his next barn where he was used for pleasure riding. But Jasper wanted more! He came to us because we could keep his dancing feet very busy! Jasper has been with us for 8 years and has mellowed considerably. That being said - he can still bring it when he needs too!
Oklahoma is a very handsome 16hh Paint Quarter Horse Draft cross gelding.
Oklahoma came to us in December 2013. It wasn't until the spring that we realized that he was quite a possessive boy and tried to claim the mares in the herd as his own. He caused a bit of a disruption in the herd - and caused himself quite a bit of stress - so he dropped in body score. Once separated into a smaller gelding herd, he gained weight and confidence.
We don't have a lot of history on Oklahoma but what we do know is he is a perfect gentleman on his own - especially out on trail. We have ridden him in smaller groups (with mares) and he behaves well! The surprise about Oklahoma is he can JUMP! and would make someone very happy with this new found ability!
