Located just north of Big Timber, Montana, you can depend on Open Spear Ranch when you’re in the market for a reliable horse. Since 1989 we’ve specialized in raising high-quality registered AQHA horses, in addition to a large commercial cattle herd.
What Sets Our Horses Apart
Our broodmares are pasture bred from May 1 through July 1 each year and also foal out in the open terrain in a natural setting. Our AQHA studs and broodmares carry high-quality foundation bloodlines from well-known horses like Smooth As A Cat, High Brow Cat, Peptoboonsmal, Peppy San Badger, Docs Hickory, Playgun, Freckles Playboy, Doc Bar, Dual Rey, Nu Cash, Doc O’Lena, Montana Doc and others.
Our Horses are raised Montana “Tuff”!
When you turn to Open Spear Ranch, you’ll find we provide horses that do well in the cutting, reining, working cow horse, roping and team penning arenas, as well as breeding good, solid ranch horses. But regardless of what type of horse you call on us for, they’ll come with certain qualities you won’t find elsewhere, including superior dispositions, cow sense, the heart to please and the mind to learn!
Because our horses are raised out in the open and are exposed to nature, they’re prepared to deal with almost anything you throw at them: crossing creeks, navigating steep and often rocky hillsides, and have learned to steer clear of potential threats like rattlesnakes, bears, and mountain lions.
