Diamond R Ranch is a family owned ranch dedicated to producing top quality Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred racehorses. Our goal is to produce the best bred running horses we can by breed to top stallions in the industry. Another one of our goals is to develop top producing mares, because without good mares it is hard to have top foals no matter who the stallion.

With our breeding program we produce royal bred horses and raise the foals to be the best race horses they can be. We want to produce some of the top running horses in the industry and provide the public with top bred horses for performance, competition, and for the love of the animal and the sport.

Some of the stallions we using in our breeding program are Valiant Hero, Ivory James, Corona Cartel, PYC Paint Your Wagon, Tres Seis, Mr Jess Perry, One Dashing Eagle, Walk Thru Fire, One Famous Eagle and FDD Dynasty.

Diamond R Ranch started in 2005 originally breeding paints is Bismarck, North Dakota. Mr. Toaster was the first race horse purchased in 2005. We ran him for a year and he did really well for us. Then we purchased a couple mares and started breeding our own racehorses. In 2014 we expanded our operation to a second location in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma.

We do the initial or foundation training with our foals using a natural horsemanship program. We halter break, lead train, work on clipping, standing for the farrier and vet, trailer loading, get them use to a saddle and basic ground work. When they are old enough they go to the racing trainer for riding and gate training. When their racing career is over they come back and are “restarted” using the same natural horsemanship program. Meaning they get a refresher course on the foundation training and continue riding off the track.

Our horses are on a healthy diet of good quality hay and alfalfa and grain products with supplements as needed.

Diamond R Ranch cares about the future of every horse that we raise.  We focus our energy on giving the horse the skills needed to be successful. We offer high quality well-bred horses to the public, with the necessary skills so that both horse and human have a successful partnership.
