Welcome to the WYO Quarter Horse Ranch


"Have a gelding from the WYO sale, all I can say is every animal is TOP shelf, and they are incredible to work with! Super sad to see this incredible thing ending... if you or yours are looking for ranch or mountain horses with incredible temperaments, THIS is the place!
Carole Smith, super sad I can’t be there. Praying for excellence for you all!!"

"Dear Carole & Bill: Hope you are doing fine and in good health. After I read your post “the last sale” thought about writing you a few lines. It was an honor and a pleasure meeting the two of you. My family and I are enjoying our three horses. In fact, we just had a great ride on the countryside. Horses have always been what you offered, excellent! God bless you both for all the years to come, my best to Jed and Dr. Bartlett took care of the rest. You may have to pick out another one for my 80th birthday because my 13 yr old redheaded granddaughter already gave me a deposit to purchase him. I think i lost me red horse. Carole, thank you for your honesty. It is really a pleasure dealing with you folks."
