Hear what our customers say about us
My wife and I have been wanting to purchase two horses for 20 years. We finally decided the time is now since our three children are now all grown.
I began researching available horses in Texas. I looked at hundreds of horses on many websites and spoke to many horse owners, but never had a comfortable feeling with any of them.
I fortunately found aranchhorse and was pleasantly surprised that I got to speak to someone that I believed was totally honest with me.
Lisa the owner was so helpful answering all my questions and made recommendations on what horses would be a good or not a good fit for my wife and Me. Also, I could contact her anytime with additional questions. My wife and I decided to make the 700 mile round trip to go meet and ride the horses. Our agreement was to meet the horses on Friday and ride them on Saturday. Since we are both beginners, we wanted horses that were very well trained and behaved. As stated on the website, both horses were exactly as described. They are well trained and are perfect for our current skill level.
They two we chose was Monte a 10 year old painted gelding, and Diamond a 10 year old sorrel mare. We truly love these two and look forward to many years of riding and ownership.
We highly recommend Aranchhorse if you are looking for a sound horse. They are completely honest and will provide you with a quality horse.
We will certainly purchase another horse from them without any hesitation. Thank you Lisa and your staff for making our purchase so easy.

My wife and I purchased a horse from A Ranch Horse and was very happy with our horse. The horse was what they said it to be. They told us it was not for a beginner rider and they told us the truth. We didn’t want a dead head but we wanted something that will get up and go. The horse is perfect horse for us. No health problems and they are very helpful with all of our questions. I will be getting another horse in a year or two and I will be going back to them. I would say two thumbs up!
Pam, TexasWe purchased a horse from aranchhorse for our 11 year old daughter on December 7, 2016. I drove the 3 hours to ride him after reading the description and seeing the video and he rode JUST AS DESCRIBED. However, I was still nervous about purchasing, only due to a previous horse purchase the month before ( were lied to; horse was unsafe for my daughter!!). My husband and I came unannounced a week later and Lisa was so gracious and kind; she allowed me to ride him again and then ok’d a vet of our choice to come do a pre purchase exam. We took him home that afternoon!! He is absolutely the most incredible horse! Our daughter is completely in love with him!! Lisa is not only very kind, she is honest and trustworthy! She keeps a small number of horses and they’re kept in a clean, comfortable environment. (If you’ve been looking for horse within this price range, you know this is rare!) She truly has a heart for matching good horses with the right people. I just can’t say enough
about our experience and our amazing new family member! If your a parent, knowing your child is safe and seeing the light and joy in their face, that experience is PRICELESS! I highly recommend aranchhorse!
Hello! In March I was given eclipse as a 16th birthday present. From the day I tried him out we’ve clicked, and as both of our training continues I cannot believe what a sweet honest guy he is for being only 5. I have to thank you all so much for making it possible for him to be in my life! He is a barn favorite and has such a goofy character, he is definelty an eye turner! He tremendously enjoys going for a hack through our trails, as well as our schooling lessons. Again thank you so much for matching me up with the horse of my dreams
I bought 2 horses from A Ranch Horse, expecting the worst and hoping for the best. They are EXACTLY as advertised, and better. They are not only easy to catch in the pasture, they come when called. They are so gentle, and expected them to be hard mouth as so gentle, but they are very soft mouth and response as can be. I have had many horses in the past, and even raised cutting quarters, but these two saddlebred paints are the love of my life, because of their personality and absolutely LOVE them. Thanks
Hello, I bought Ginger about 5 years ago from A Ranch Horse. She is a Tennessee Walker and continues to be my best friend and dream. She continues to be the most loving, beautiful creature on Earth! Thank you again Lisa for the Blessing that you have sent me.

I purchased Pokey from Aranch horse a couple of months ago. The staff was fantastic. They gave me all the information on Pokey and they were so honest. I bought Pokey without seeing him in person or riding him. They delivered him to me and he passed his vet check with flying colors. He is fantastic and just what I was looking for. Ready now to purchase a horse for my daughter and they will be my first stop. Thanks again!

Hi Lisa this is Sharon Tilly and we got a rescue horse from you a couple of weeks ago. I just wanted to tell you that we named him Dawson. He is such a nice and sweet guy. He has already put on at least 50 lbs and we are so much in love with him. You and Shawn are great people and keep up the good work. Thank you so much
Sharon Tilly Dallas, TX
We purchased a horse for A Ranch Horse a couple of months ago. I didn’t have time to drive there, so I talked with the staff at A Ranch Horse. they were so helpful and pointed me to the right horse. We couldn’t be more pleased with the horse we purchased. I will be going back to A Ranch Horse next Summer. I give them 5 stars
Ana Coleman, Midland, TX
I purchased Brownie last year. She is doing great. She has gained nicely and looks fantastic. I have been on two rather extreme trail ride on her over the past two weekend and she did not let any of the gaited horses leave her in the dust. I am well pleased with her and hope to take her on another soon pulling a wagon. Thank you for letting me bring her to Louisiana.
Sand Odom, Leesville, LA
I bought a gaited mule from these girls and he is just like they said he was. I saw him advertised and looked at the video and paid a deposit within 2 hrs after I found him. It took me five days to get to go ride him and pick him up due to my workschedule, the arrangement with aranchhorse was very professional and pleasant. I was able to find the perfect ride for me andthis mule has a home for the rest of his life. I drove 8.5 hours to pick him up and don’t regret a minute. Great experience.
Thank you very much! Ryans Lil Moon & Onyx. We bought this great horses from you 2 years ago!

Just wanted to let you know that Teddy is great. My granddaughter Kate (11) loves him. After school yesterday she spent 3 hours with Teddy brushing, petting etc. Teddy behaved wonderfully. Kate and her brother (14) rode him bareback (as they ride the donkey). This is the exact type horse I had in mind when I started the search last year. He will be will loved and taken care of. Thank you very much. I will recommend you as the go to ranch for a great horse. Thank you.

Hi Lisa & Dustin, Just wanted to let you know that Sand Dollar, my Tennessee Walker I bought from you in January, has added such a dimension to my life. Having not ridden in 40 years, I was a little leery of my boy, and since he was basically a rescue, I had no way of knowing how he was treated or trained in his previous life. We’ve gotten to know one another pretty well in the past 4 months. He’s turned out to be such a big ole’ mama’s boy that I’ve had to set some boundaries for him, which he’s slowly learning to accept. He’s still a little confused about his gaits, but we’re working on them, and riding him on a good day is like riding a marble, smooth as glass. It’s such a thrill to see him really lay ‘em down, arch his neck and let that tail fly! It’s hard to find a Walker in these parts, but he was worth the search. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks again!
Dee Weaver, TX
All I can say is THANK YOU!!! Lisa, Brian and Robbie is AWESOME!! I went to them inquiring about a horse and left with a new horse and friends! This is absolutely the place to come. Thank You!!
I would like to start off by thanking Mr. Chris for being such a patient and caring person he really helped me get passed some fears I had with being around horses, We bought a little mare named cowgirl and she is absolutely the sweetest horse she is so laid back and is so loving thank ya’ll for all you help….
We put a down payment on a horse and a week later were able to make the 290 mile trip to pick it up. The horse was just too green and really did not meet my needs at all. Without any fuss the down payment was transfered to the purchase of another horse that actually fit my needs. We rode and tried out several horses before Catlin, Clay and I were satasfied. We ended up with two great horses and several great new friends. This is absolutely the place to go. Thanks Lisa, Clay and Catlin and all your wonderful staff. I will certainly recommend you to others.

I called A Ranch Horse inquiring on Two Squirts of Honey last Friday. Was told she was a great kids horse, which is what I was looking for. Went down to ride her that afternoon and brought her home. She was my little boy’s birthday gift and needless to say, she is probably happy he went back to school today so she could get some rest. He has rode her ALL weekend. Thanks A Ranch Horse for selling us what you said you were. I will be back!!
Jessica Slack, Livingston, TX
Just want to give you guys an update on my horse! Bought her just over a month ago from you guys and she is by far thee best first horse I could ever ask for. Was a little iffy about her feet being in bad condition. But had them treated and they should be back to normal soon! I ride her everyday mainly with just halter and reins, needless to say she does great. Hasn’t spooked with me once since i have had her. She stands when I saddle her and follows me around like a giant puppy dog! She is excellent around kids and other horses/animals. Going to be getting her into search and rescue with the sheriffs posse in a couple months! Super excited. I’m so very thankful for the horse you guys sold me. I will definitely be saving your contact information for the future when I’m looking for another horse. Thank you guys so much!

Several moths ago my daughter and I purchased 3 Horses HB, Sugar and TGIF (aka Friday). We had never owned horses before and were by No means experts. We wondered as we waited for the three to be delivered if we could have possibly bitten of more than we could chew. With Sugar and her cribbing, and HB and Friday still underweight and having old surface injuries that needed a little TLC and Fish Oil. We now have 3 beautiful healthy horses. Well mannered and great to ride. We love all three of our Babies and wish there was a way to send pictures. Its hard to believe what big healthy Gentlemen HB and Friday turned out to be, Sugar still a cribber when she can get away with it, but she is such a sweetheart!! Thanks to all the staff for helping us find the perfect Horses for us!!
Michelle Hird & Charlene Steever, Rockport, Tx
We bought Spark Plug and had him shipped, based on the video and your recommendation for a calm, safe trail horse. Having never bought a horse without testing and seeing first we were leery, but from day one, this horse has far exceeded all of our expectations. We are experienced horse people with 3 other horses. This horse is well trained, very broke, sound and an absolute beauty. He even knows how to bow! He is an “in your pocket’ guy who loves people. Clearly someone loved him very much- we just adore him. Thanks!!!!!
Cindy, Santa Fe, NM
Reno is awesome! I went to get another horse but Reno ended up going home with me. He is a ham, and very sweet and curious. He follows me like a puppy, and he is very smart. I’m glad to call him mine. Thanks to Lisa, Jimmy and Brian for all their help! I will definitely buy my next horse from them.
We decided some time ago to try and find a hosre that would be safe for us to ride. Neither of us have been on a horse in a very long time and wanted to be safe while we got “back in the saddle” as they say! We found your web site and got so excited about what we saw. We came down to your facility that weekend and bought 2 horses. We left with AWE SHUCKS and WORDON’S FAVORITE and absolutely love them both!!!! They suit us both perfectly. You guys really know your horses and we recommend your facility to anyone looking to find the right horse.
Linda & Gary Philipp, Lake Whitney, TX
Hi, I visited your facility and was looking at Kamir. Please excuse me but I didn’t get anyone’s name, but, I just want to Thank them again for the help and advice they gave me! And the knowledge they had of Kamir. I am not a red horse person, but I just may have changed my mind. As soon as I get my saddle in shape, I will be visiting again, and maybe he will still be there. Thanks again.
To everyone reading this testimonial, I just want to say this is the place to go if you want a good horse and great help! My family and I had looked and looked and looked for a pretty horse and found little to nothing… until we found Saw Dust (who we have decided to rename Maverick)! He was (and is) gorgeous, but we thought it was too good to be true. But sure enough, when we got there we were nothing close to disappointed on how he turned out! I think what made us like Catlyn and Clay most was they were honest with us and I learned a lot just from a short visit! Maverick is now my baby and I am so glad we picked him! Thanks also to Lisa for helping us on the phone;). You guys are more than amazing and please keep up the inspiring work!
Hey,I recently purchased Poppas Flit. AKA Amigo We absolutely love him.He is a perfect fit for us.We had originally came to look at a different horse. He wasn’t a good fit for us. The staff at your facility are awesome and did their homework on this horse for us.We will put many happy miles on this beautiful boy. Thanks!
Thank you for outlaw. He is the best horse in the world! We all love him and he has helped me to build up my confidence to start running again. I want to do barrels again and my dad is very proud of me. Dustin gave us the best horse EVER!
Just want to say thank you for such a great horse. You guy are great and very Honest people. I came out to look at a horse and Dustin told me that was NOT the horse for me. He was right, I got a better horse for less money! Thank you A Ranch Horse you guys are great.
