San Juan Ranch, under the current ownership of John and Brenda Stephenson, is a World Class breeder of Cutting, Reining and Working Cow Horses and is committed to breeding and training elite performance Quarter Horses. Our excellent breeding program has resulted in San Juan Ranch becoming an NRCHA Million Dollar Breeder, achieving this status in only 10 years to become one of few breeders to hit this milestone.
San Juan Ranch is home to three NRCHA Open Futurity Champions — 2018 Champion SJR Diamond Mist, 2012 Champion CD Diamond, and 2010 Champion Stylish Little Oak; 2016 NRCHA Stakes Champion, SJR Diamond Rey; and PCCHA Open Futurity Champion and Open Derby Reserve Champion, Bearly Nuf Taz. San Juan Ranch mare, Shiners Diamond Girl, was one of the first recipients of the NRCHA $500,000 Dam Award in 2022. Owners, John and Brenda Stephenson, were inducted into the NRCHA Hall of Merit in 2014.
The original San Juan Ranch consisted of over 44,000 acres of rolling grassland found in California's Coastal Mountain Range situated midway between the Pacific Ocean and the fertile San Joaquin Valley in eastern San Luis Obispo county. In 2011, San Juan Ranch relocated to Weatherford, Texas in the heart of horse country. In Weatherford, our horses are raised and thrive on prime Bermuda grass. Our breeding operation produces numerous foals each year. Come by and visit us and see our latest foal crop!
