While social media has its downfalls, for Brady and Savannah Pitchford, it provided the catalyst to the creation of The BP Ranch, their passion project for training top-quality prospects.

“I’ve always tried to have good, young horses around; get them starting roping and flip them to make a little money,” Brady Pitchford said, a practice designed to feed roping habits.

The Pitchfords went looking for more colts by Catty Rey after having several go through their hands, the first found by Savannah on a Facebook ad. That search eventually led to the opportunity to buy the stallion himself and offer him publicly for the first time.

“We didn’t really see ourselves in the breeding game, but we didn’t want to stop riding his colts,” Pitchford admitted, noting the stallion’s good mind is appreciated in light of the Pitchford’s two small children’s interest in the horses.

Catty Rey is the son of Smooth As A Cat out of a Dual Rey mare with progeny earnings already topping $150,000 in cutting, roping, ranch horse versatility and barrel racing. His son, Heavenly Catt, won the Royal Crown in Rock Springs with Jeremy Buhler this summer and made the Finals at the ARHFA.

“They’re versatile babies, just dynamic in all aspects.”
