In the News:
Bailey is one of our original broodmares; part of our original plan. To breed mares we have ridden and liked, mares that worked for us. She was pretty, yellow and correct. Like many of our others she started her career off as a ranch
horse doing all aspects of ranch work then moved into the arena.
Bailey was a fun heel horse and had a great foundation on the barrel pattern. She was tough, gritty, very brave and extremely trainable. She was all heart!!! At the time we had a young family and simply put we were needing more mares
to breed. Bailey was and still is the perfect fit for our broodmare band, she is extremely fertile and his given us a baby each year she was bred and now for the first time this year her first ever filly. We have loved riding and
watching all of her colts so far, they all have her grit, forward motion and character!!

to preserve and protect their land. From left: Erin, Alistair, Shawne, Jocelyn, Rory, Thomas and Felicity. Front: Slade and Harley.
Pride was in the air on Monday evening as three generations of the Hagan family were presented with the North American Waterfowl Management Plan’s prestigious National Blue-winged Teal Award.
The Hagans, who live on a farm near Oak Lake, were nominated by the Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation in honour of the 15 easements the family has that permanently protects 4,885 acres of natural lands, including 2,020 acres of
"The easements insure that their land will permanently stay in the condition that it’s in," MHHC spokesperson Stephen Carlyle said.
Carlyle said that Hagan family has had an outstanding relationship with MHHC for years, and he hopes this award inspires other landowners to follow suit, and take extra precautions to preserve the land they own.
"Their natural areas will stay natural in perpetuity, so forever," Carlyle said.
MHHC is pleased to continue working with the Hagan family, said Carlyle, adding that they’ve been a great addition to a larger international conservation community.
The Hagan family consists of parents Shawne and Jocelyn, their four children, Alistair (Erin), Thomas (Felicity), Amanda, Bronwen, and grandkids Harley, Slade and Rory.

Why we believe in ranch horse beginnings…
We feel that people are today looking for “been there done that horse”. Some want
them better broke than others but everyone wants to know how they will “react” to any
given situation. They want them safe! In our opinion you can make both safe and broke
horses on the ranch. We are life long students of horsemanship, we take clinics, read
books, watch videos, and do are best to improve. The common thought of all of today’s
great clinicians and horseman is that horse’s are best “started” on the ranch. One such
horseman Stacy Westfall believes this is because “horses that have been exposed to a
large variety of activities last longer than those that have been drilled toward perfection
on a single thing such as reining etc. This is because these horses have had to think along
the way and exercise their mind all the while creating a better minded easier going
horse” end quote. (Stacy Westfall, AQHA horseman famous for appearing on “Ellen”
riding the bridle less, saddle less reining pattern as well as winning the “2008 Road to
the horse” she has a feature article each month in the America’s Horse magazine).
Our horses start their life in the roundpen and the arena then move outside to simple
trail riding, riding over fallen trees, through water, dragging logs etc. The horses continue
their education back in the arena, with dry work, working the flag, mock branding,
roping the heel-o-matic and track steer and next thing you know they are in the work
string. They first start with moving cows or going to work at the sales barn and all of a
sudden they graduate to sorting, branding, round penning colts, roping and doctoring
cattle in the open. Finally we move them back into the arena to refine their handle and
if it is a fit for the horse they begin their career as a team roping horse. We strive to do
every job possible on the ranch a horseback; we get all of our ranch work done while
riding these sales horses and pride ourselves in the fact that our horses “enjoy life” and
like to be ridden. It is within those parameters that we begin the culling process, as not
every horse that we own makes the sale. We do our best to start with good looking,
sound, attractive, athletic horses but if they do not enjoy being ridden then it is our
opinion that no one will enjoy riding them. That said those horses simply do not make it.
The whole time that we ride our horses we are developing their mind and simply getting
to know them as individuals; do they enjoy being ridden, how do they react to pressure?
Our Ranch horses have been put in pressure situations and have had to handle different
scenarios in their day to day life. They are constantly presented with situations in which
they have to think for themselves and “react” and it is how they react that tells us what
kind of horse they are going to be. We truly feel that these horses can go on in life and
take on many different disciplines in the future and although we can not expose them
to everything in this world we have put them in enough of these situations that we are
confident in how they will “react” and that is why we believe so much in “Ranch horse
