Horsepoor Hillbilly Ranch was
created in 2007 because we love horses, we love to trail ride,
and we believe that everyone who trail rides should enjoy the
experience on a horse that is sound in mind and body, and has
been given an early foundation based in trust and leadership.
We moved to Central Arkansas in 2005 after many years of trail
riding the mountains, deserts, and urban areas of Southern
California. Because of the conditions there, trail riders in
Southern California know that the best trail horses must have
good minds and should be exposed to as many different things
as possible, trusting their rider/leader to get them safely
through any situation.
We let our horses be horses. Our stallions run and play freely
with each other, our mares are pasture bred with the stallion
selected for them, and our foals are handled from birth or
introduced to human touch as soon after birth as possible.
We offer Registered Rocky Mountain, and Kentucky Mountain
Horses. American Mustangs, mainly Kiger and Sulphur,
originating from wild stock out of Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming.
We also have a few draft crosses.
We welcome you, and invite you to
explore our website and take a “walk” around the ranch. Hope
you enjoy it….y’all come back now!
We use what is commonly referred
to as the Resistance Free training method, allowing each
individual horse to progress at their own pace, creating a
strong bond between horse and human that results in a trusting
willing animal who views the human in his or her life as
leader and friend.
