Open Range Ranch is foremost a training and Quarter Horse breeding center. But it is also a concept, a lifestyle that we wanted to create for ourselves and to share with those who will share our values .
The purpose of breeding and training center is to provide competition or leisure horses, trained and educated in accordance with soft and natural methods.
We love ranch works, colts education, dressage, training and preparing horses for different disciplines of western competition, and just for fun, sorting and cattle driving.
We created the Open Range Ranch to embrace our love for horses and nature. Open Range is anything but a factory to produce foals , a touristic spot (though he deserves it ) and is not intended to become an equestrian center.
Our breeder and trainer ethics will always make us prefer the respect of animals and commitment to our values away from clientelism or business opportunities.
Considering that an animal deserves itself , we remain attentive to the destination of our horses. They are accustomed to live outdoors in a large space and with the contact of other horses and humans, to be conducted with authority but also respect and gentleness.
Thus, an owner who intend to force his horse to stay in a stall or paddock a few square feet, to deprive him of the company of another equine, requiring him what he has not been educated for... will find a better location elsewhere.
"a different style where respect for animals and agreement with colleagues and customers pass before patronage and gallery"
Despite 30 years at the head of a company, JP has always felt the soul of a landowner.
His first experience riding is back to 30 years but it was only in 2007 that he acquired his first horses. Therefore the virus is taken and not let go until launch in 2012 in the Open Range Ranch creation.
JP Open Range wants to give a different style for his ranch where respect for animals and agreement with his colleagues pass before patronage and gallery.
Open Range would probably not have happened, at least in its current form, without ideas, advice, encouragement and work of Flo.
Aside from his professional skills in a career in advertising and communication, Flo brings to our operating experience of riding and daily monitoring of the well-being of our herd.
Mental stability and sociability horses from our breeding are largely based on the innate and spontaneous Flo contact with animals, especially with foals.
In addition, Flo brings to Open Range an artistic touch by the handcrafted leather goods custom (chaps, bags, hiking bags, decoration ... to be discovered at "l'Atelier")
