Welcome to the
Prunty Ranch, where a century of tradition meets the demands of
21st century horsemen.
Horses raised as nature
intended: As they
have been for a hundred years, the Prunty Ranch horses are
raised on the open range, in the sagebrush country of
northeastern Nevada and southern Idaho. Our foals come of age
on the high desert, nurtured as much by the landscape as by
their dams, evoking millennia upon millennia of deeply-rooted
equine instinct as they mature.
Quality range-bred horses are
hard to come by. Our foals move with the foraging herd,
traveling every day. Not only does this work to develop
physically superior horses, but by raising foals in a herd, as
nature intended, mentally healthy horses are created. From
birth, the foals learn to traverse rocky, brushy country, cross
streams, graze, and to respect the herd dynamic. In other
words, our foals learn to handle themselves physically, deal
with a variety of naturally occurring challenges, and to submit
to dominant herd members--all of this translates directly to
a foal’s future relationship with humans.
Our unique program offers a blend
of past, present, and future. Prunty Horses are the living
renaissance of the horses that truly won the West, with the
hardiness and natural intelligence of yesteryear’s mounts
tempered by the dispositions and conformations of modern-day
