San Juan Ranch
A world-class breeding program that produces working cow horses, San Juan Ranch has become a National Reined Cow Horse Association Million Dollar Breeder in only 10 years of breeding—a milestone only a few have achieved. Along with an elite breeding program, the ranch also produces UltraCruz, a supplement line that has played a role in the program’s overall success.
The home of multiple champions, such as CD Diamond and SJR Diamond Mist that both stand at stud, it’s likely that the operation’s best-kept secret is that horses seamlessly go from the cow horse program to team roping. With a waiting list of ropers wanting San Juan Ranch genetics, it’s not just the paternal bloodlines most are seeking but instead the combination with San Juan Ranch’s arsenal of top maternal bloodlines.
Producing Cole Davison’s NFR heel horse Apollo Oak by CD Olena out of Shiners Little Oak before the breeding program was established played a role in putting the program on the team roping radar. Continuing to produce many team roping standouts like SJR Black Diamond, SJR Diamond Billy and SJR Diamond Man, the program will continue to produce team roping horses with the enrollment of both CD Diamond and SJR Diamond Mist in the Royal Crown Roping.
