Westfall Ranch based out of two locations one is located in beautiful Los Olivos, California, a charming small town nestled in a picturesque valley 30 minutes north of Santa Barbara. The ranch headquarters was originally built in 1894. It was used as a stagecoach stop for travelers and has been a horse training facility since the 1950's. It is surrounded by large cattle ranches and vineyards, gently rolling hills dotted with huge oak trees, the climate is mild. We are known for having plenty of fresh cattle on hand. Young horses are frequently ridden outside to check pasture cattle. Russ and Janet are both "NCHA hall of fame" riders. The ranch has been the perfect spot to have Cutting Clinics and Pre Works. The second location for Westfall Ranch is in Granbury, Texas where they are putting their special touch on this facility as well, providing the same quality atmosphere they always have for customers and horses. They are excited to continue their business both in California and Texas in the years to come.
Westfall Ranch is also home to the well known stallion "Cd Royal" who's offspring have won over $3,000,000 and several well known broodmares such as Trouble Lynn 495, Lil Bit Reckless, Peptos Church Mouse and Just as Reckless to name a few.
Year after year, hard work has paid off, the Westfall's have been at the top end of Equi Stats Owner, Rider, Stallion or Breeder charts.
