The Sellers Ranch was founded in 1891, but it wasn’t until 2012 that the program was put on the team roping map. With help from a standout 2012 brown mare known as Tommy Girl and J.D. Yates, the ranch launched into breeding top roping horses.
With the program’s cornerstone stallion Sensation Cash—the stallion Teddy Robinson rode to thefinals at the 2001 National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity that later went on to achieve AQHA superiors in heading, heeling and tie-down roping—bringing the Sellers Ranch closer to the spotlight, the operation blossomed into a full-service breeding facility that includes services such as standing outside stallions, shipping semen and embryo transfer. Now standing stallions such as DT Shiner, Mr Baron Jules, Nu One Time Blues, BFR Igniting Sparks, and many more, the program features a stallion lineup of winners that are now producing winners.
“We want everything we produce to be a team roping world champion or futurity champion,” Ryan Sellers explains about the hopes of the stallion lineup. “But we know that’s not in the cards for each horse, so we want them to be competitive in whichever direction they go—whether that’s ranch sorting, team penning, or just using horses.”
