Burleson Texas Horse Ranches in Johnson County

Burleson Texas Horse Ranches in Johnson County

Several successful horse operations are located in the Burleson and surrounding areas. From breeding facilities, to boarding stables, some which host local horse shows, to top  Horse Show Trainers and various disciplines of riding such as Cutting, Reining, Halter, Western Pleasure, English disciplines and even 3-Day Eventing. There is no lack of variety in this suburb of Fort Worth, Texas.

So whatever your favorite equine related interests are, we bet you can find a local farm which provides some support for that disciple or interest. I will be highlighting several of the local farms over the next several weeks. I will also include some contact information in case you are interested in their services. One thing is for sure, there is no shortage of horse businesses in the Johnson County area.
Hughes Quarter Horses runs the gamut on offering many horse services. They have a top notch breeding set up in which they offer full care for any breeding stock as well as 24-hour monitored foaling stalls with quick access to veterinary care. HQH (Hughes Quarter Horses) also offers full care boarding with heated barns, corrals with loafing sheds, pasture boarding for mares and foals, two hot and cold wash racks, covered round pen, outdoor arena, hot walker, automatic fly spray system, 50+ acres of riding area with lots of hills and trees. Full care also provides twice daily feedings and stall cleanings.

Their trainer/instructor is Emily Rollison, a lifelong equestrian and recent graduate of Clemson University, Emily has a B.S. in Agricultural Education. While attending Clemson University, she was the student manager of the CU Equine Center, where she was active in both the breeding and training programs. She enjoys working with youth and amateur equestrians.

They offer riding lessons in western and English disciplines to beginners through advanced students. With a sixty foot covered round pen and a 100 x 150 foot arena. In addition they provide training in all levels from halter breaking, to breaking colts, to finished show horses. They also offer training in western pleasure, hunter under saddle, and the over fence classes. In addition they also have many horses for sale. You can find them at 5725 CR 605 in Burleson or contact them online.

A very close neighbor to HQH is the excellent SpiritHorse Equestrian Center located at 6024 CR 605. Conveniently located between Burleson and Mansfield, Texas, their facility is only minutes away from the Will Rogers Equestrian Center and only minutes from any point near south Fort Worth, Texas and TCU. They offer a safe riding and full service boarding environment with all the extras needed to keep your horse well taken care of.

Jenna McGowan is their head trainer. She trained under Peter Gray, Olympic medal winner and equestrian coach for the Canadian Olympic equestrian team. She has worked as an assistant trainer for High Point Performance horses in Whitesboro where she won several national competions and world competitions, most notably 2008 NSBA Hunter Under Saddle World Competition.
