A little more about us
Behind it all
All this has been possible because of Christ who strengthens us.
God always provides - and because of that we constantly have great people supporting & helping us with the daily operations of the Ranch.
God, Faith, Family & Friends are what keep this Ranch & all of its ventures successful!
The Good Shepherd Ranch was Established in 1999
Named that because we strive to represent the Good Shepherd (Jesus Christ) in the way we care for animals & folks like you!
The Alliman Family: David, Francesca & their 2 daughters - Tiffany & Natalee, along with their live in/full time assistant - Jessie.
Jessie & The family are so grateful & passionate about their work with the horses & their lives at the Ranch.
God has gifted us with this lovely place while on Earth.
And we love to share the blessing.
Our passion for God, family, & horses, brings us much joy!
The Alliman's work everyday to build on the Ranch, for their Family & for every horse or guest that crosses our path,
for the glory of the One who provides it.
*Be a working proof of Gods grace & love
*To match well trained, sound & sane horses to great families or individuals.
*To share our knowledge & experience
*And to provide all Horses a purpose & place
Our Philosophy: Well, we don't have a specific "Good Shepherd Ranch" philosophy, we know every horse & individual have different needs.
We hope to show the love & possibilities of Christ, to all - through horses & our family.
Working to leave a very positive impact on the Horse industry.
~Thank you for considering purchasing or adopting from us~
We are a Christian Family owned & operated business!
We have passionately been in business for 23+ years now.
And we have carefully been pairing & placing Good Shepherd Horses to families in all 50 states, & international as well!
Every horse that comes through our facility is carefully evaluated for temperament, sanity & soundness.
Although Horses are our passion, Jesus is our center, family following, then Horses. And when you purchase a horse from us, that horse receives great training, all of our passion, & 50+ years of combined experience. You are also getting a horse that has been super well cared for & prayed for. When that horse is purchased we then, personally pray for both you/your horse & the future partnership.
We spend nearly everyday with these horses, putting each horse through our personal assessment program, which includes but not limited to - Ground manners, Saddling, Harnessing, Trail riding /driving, highway traffic, tarps, sacks, loading, hauling, un-loading, round pen work, tying, dogs, cattle, deer, moving & standing water, exposure to big equipment, such as - tractors, skid steers, semi's, or anything else we can find/think of, & general handling.
We specialize in excellent Trail & Driving horses. In our program we focus on riding our horses on/off the trails, out with groups, out alone, & working under harness as well.
Even if you never intend to drive your horse, there is an advantage to owning a horse trained for driving as they are more exposed then the average riding horse & far more traffic safe.
But we promise, if you learn to drive you will LOVE it!
And we provide lessons!
First 2 lessons are complimentary if you purchase a driving horse from us.
