About Us,

   Ballard Farms has been raising horses for generations.  Ruth Ballard showed horses all over the USA, winning consistently as a youth, amateur, and pro. Her early career was high lighted by winning the prestigious All Around Youth Title plus multiple class wins at the famed All American Quarter Horse Congress.  Ruth continued her training in England with a certification from The British Horse Society.

    Ballard Farms has an outstanding record breeding, training and selling great horses for over 26 years.   AQHA Champion Stallion, Reynolds Rap empowered Ruth’s special band of broodmares to produce outstanding winning horses that made  Reynolds Rap an AQHA Top Ten Leading Sire.  It was a rare privilege to own such a star.

    AQHA Foundation Bred Stallion, Scamps My Dad was purchased after Rap’s passing.  “Scamp” crossed supremely with Reynolds Rap daughters. Now, the infusion of our current Thoroughbred Stallion, Versify, (Grandson of Triple Crown Winning Seattle Slew) has added the magic that owners are ecstatic with by producing big, beautiful, athletic horses bred from generations of champion proven horses.

    In addition to breeding, training, and selling fine horses Ruth developed and opened her farm to include horse camp. Ballard Farms Horse Camp accommodates beginners to experienced young riders during school vacations and throughout the summer for day or overnight visits.  Each student is given one-on-one attention until they are ready to ride for the first time or perfect their riding and stable management skills.

    Ruth’s inviting horse programs include sales, breeding, training, private lessons, along with weekly group amateur or youth riding classes.

    Ballard Farms is also a facility available to you to plan an event or run a program.  Book Ruth’s knowledge and work for your next personal party, meeting, or overnight group at an affordable price.

If you love horses, you will love Ballard Farm!
