Thank you for your interest in the S Ranch.  Here in Montana, we raise what many believe are some of the best working ranch horses in the country.  Our family has been breeding and using American Quarter Horses for over 60 years in both Montana and Texas.  Recent S Ranch foundation stallions have included Paddys Irish Whiskey (an own son of Peppy San Badger who now stands at the 6666's in Texas), Doc O Dynamite (an own son of Doc O Lena and an Equi-stat all-time leading sire), Master Merada (an own son of Freckles Merada), and Boonsmals Colonel (an own son of Peptoboonsmal).  These stallions have sired quality horses with outstanding athleticism and great minds.  S Ranch foals have achieved success as cutting horses, working cow horses, reining horses (including Can Can Lena - who can forget this 2003 groundbreaking performance), barrel racing horses, roping horses, and of course as all-around working ranch horses.

What is unique about S Ranch horses is that they are used and proven on the ranch before they are considered for breeding stock. Though the S Ranch prides itself on having proven genetics and bloodlines in its horses, it is our philosophy that a horse’s quality must extend beyond its papers and out into the field. All of the S Ranch’s brood mares are broke and ridden as ranch or  performance horses before they are considered for breeding.

Beyond horses, our primary business on the S Ranch is commercial black angus cattle.  We run approximately 5,000 head year round on over 200,000 acres between Pryor and St. Xavier, Montana. S Ranch horses play a huge role in accomplishing the work needed in running a working cattle ranch. Our horses are indispensible tools that we stake not only our reputation on, but our livelihood as well.  We sure hope you enjoy and appreciate them as much as we do.
