We pride ourselves on producing some of the top producing and top performing Foundation Bred Quarter Horses in the industry!
Our breeding program is primarily designed to concentrate the blood of specific legendary sires (King P-234, Royal King, Joe Hancock, Blue Valentine, Mr. San Peppy, and Driftwood) to produce some of the greatest using and performing horses with impeccable bloodlines, strong bones, great cow instincts, and a gentle disposition – the type of horse you will be proud to own and be mounted on!
Built originally by the late visionary, Fred G. Gist, today we continue his legacy by furthering the Wagon Wheel Ranch Breeding Program and producing more top-quality using and performance horses with the versatility, disposition, and training to meet the needs of the ranch, the trail, and the arena.
Thanks to everyone for the decades of support and appreciation. We hope you get the chance to come out and enjoy the wonderful things the Wagon Wheel Ranch™ has to offer sometime soon!
