I grew up in the southeastern corner of the Great Basin in Iron County, Utah on a horse ranch.  Learning from my father, we raised and trained old style ranch type Morgans, Arabians, Welch Ponies and Quarter Horses, bound for the track.  All were started in the hackamore and were in the breeding program, so stallions and mares were ridden side by side as ranch horses.  All of which takes some good solid horsemanship skills.  My wife and I operate “Flanigan Training and Sales”.  Our backgrounds come from the Western and English worlds, giving us a diversified bag of skills.  From colt starting through tune-ups for other horses; we do our best to help horse and rider become a team.



SJ Ranch Horse Sale

Bear is a 15.1 hand, 1100 pound Sorrel Gelding. Blaze Face with color around both eyes, 3 white socks. Bear is an exceptionally flashy horse with a beautiful desired flaxen mane that draws the eye. He's pretty in motion and so well put together. From birth on, he learned to get his feet under him and travel out well. He went through the winter hanging out at the calving barn and being used to drag newborn calves in on a sled. He's naturally picked up on everything he needs to know and has the desired qualities of an awesome ranch horse, plus the bloodlines for athleticism, endurance, speed and cow. He's had a lot of miles put on his back on a cow/calf operation, and many hours of roping calves and then standing quietly while tagging as well as having an outstanding performance in the branding pen where he was used to head and heel calves.
