The Horses

“Do you give the horse his strength or clothe his neck with a flowing mane? Do you make him leap like a locust, striking terror with his proud snorting? He paws fiercely, rejoicing in his strength, and charges into the fray. He laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; he does not shy away from the sword. The quiver rattles against his side, along with the flashing spear and lance. In frenzied excitement he eats up the ground; he cannot stand still when the trumpet sounds.”

Job 39:19-25

VC Ranch Performance Horses is located in a great area between Muncie and New Castle, Indiana.  Close to several of the horse venues in the area, including Henry County Saddle Club (just down the road), Hoosier Park (only minutes away in Anderson) and Indiana Grand (a little over an hour drive to Shelbyville.)  Circle G Arena, Hoosier Horse Park and C Bar C Expo Center are within two hours driving distance.

VC Ranch offers full care board (which includes all feed and bedding) and specializes in training and lessons geared towards barrel racers and pole benders.

All horses at VC Ranch are turned out as weather permits.  We offer a 50' x 100' indoor arena and a 100' x 200' outdoor riding arena. 

Our training program is geared towards creating sound minded horses that will be competing for years to come.  We place a lot of focus on teaching the basics before horses are "started" on barrels.  Our main goal is to build strong foundations with our horses and our clients with an end result being a happy horse and rider relationship.

We also stand a son of First Down Dash, First To Shake Six, and offer a few horses for sale at all times; from weanlings to finished barrel horses.

Contact Us for appointment or to schedule training.
