San Juan Ranch
Weatherford, Texas

Nestled in the heart of horse country in Weatherford, Texas, the San Juan Ranch operates with a commitment to breeding elite performance horses: athletes who are excelling not only in cutting, reining and working cow horse events but also in the budding rope horse futurity world.

San Juan Ranch is a National Reined Cow Horse Association Million Dollar Breeder—a rare milestone that was achieved in just 10 years—and its sister company, UltraCruz, produces a supplement line that keeps their horses in optimal health.

The ranch boasts award-winning broodmares and champion stallions, such as CD Diamond and his son SJR Diamond Mist, both NRCHA Open Futurity Champions and Horse of the Year winners whose progeny are eligible for the Royal Crown and Medal Roping incentives.

San Juan’s success stories grew in 2023 with SJR Diamond Bond, who finished third in the Royal Crown Open Heading with Rhen Richard after a stellar 2022 campaign, along with SJR Diamond Billy, SJR Diamond Len and others.

Additionally, they raised mare SJR Diamond Salsa, who was the high seller at the Platinum Medal Rope Horse Sale, proving a desire for top prospects like those San Juan is turning out.
