Category Archives: Geldings

These are the horses that we have already gelded. You might want to check out the colts’ page too if you have your heart set on a boy. There are some great future geldings there as well. Our geldings will make great performance horses and if broken to ride will already have been ridden working cattle by the time you check them out. We get the best reports back all the time as to how much heart our horses have and that they like their jobs. They are generally quiet but will really get up and go when needed. They know what to do around cattle and learn quickly. This is the right place to start looking for your next ranch gelding or cow horse.
