About our horse program...
River Hills Ranch Ltd. proudly raises quality Quarter Horses for roping, barrels, ranching and performance. Our business is tailored to buyers wanting to raise the bar, and take them to the next level.
Our vision is to provide our high quality, home raised horses from our program world wide. We are achieving this through our honest sales, dependable reputation, generations of hands on experience and work ethic. At our ranch we work together as a family and a team to only create and provide the top end horses for your needs, raising them from the ground up. Whether it be NFR, rodeos in other countries, World Series, or your local events we provide you with our personal attention, to make sure your bar is raised.
Our breeding program, running for close to 40 years, has always revolved around our ranching lifestyle including pasture work and feedlot work for our cow/calf and yearling operation. We run 27-30 broodmares and 3 stallions between our two daughters, and ourselves. We all operate, and keep our own animals under separate names, but we run our stock together on the same breeding and training program.
We breed what we like to ride, always looking for new ways to raise the bar for the horses in our industry. We breed good moving horses, we want them smooth to ride! A good solid foot and bone under them to keep sound and less prone to injury. Good muscling and balance, along with a cool mindset has made our program shine. This is also what has allowed our horses to be exceptional rodeo horses, and very versatile in other directions including working cow horse, western pleasure, halter, English, jumping and dressage.
Raising and promoting top head and heel horses for our growing rope horse industry, has also led us to branching out and promote in barrel racing. The training programs our horses go through start from the ground up, giving a good foundation with solid basis on our horses. They are kept sound and sane by not pushing them beyond what their mind and body can handle.

Dun Driftn, one of our Hes A Zippy Jack daughters, is currently being rode in the Pro Rodeo circuit by 2018 World Champion Header, Levi Simpson.
We are also strong sponsors and supporters of the Manitoba Rope Horse Futurity which began in 2013. Our horses get well showcased by the trainers in this event, with growing competition every year. We have had several compete at the Canadian National Rope Horse Futurity in Edmonton, AB, as well as the American Rope Horse Futurity World Championship in Fort Worth, TX.
We are proud of the years we have put into this program, and the results show in our horse herd.
