At Rising K Ranch, learn to commnicate with our horses on our beautiful Utah trails!
Located between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks in Utah!
At Rising K Ranch, we have a wide variety of horses for sale. Every horse we sell is safe to ride, even for beginners. However, some of our horses have more talent and ability than a beginner will know what to do with and should therefore go to someone who is interested in using the horse in accordance with his skill.
All of our horses for sale are good for going into the mountains, even steep and rugged trails; but some of the horses we sell are also very good when it somes to working off your legs, working cattle, handling a rope, and some have placed in AQHA reining or cowhorse shows. Each horse is treated individually and we will try our best to see each horse go to someone who will use it according to what he is best at doing.
Some of our horses for sale are "Trail Horses" who are best suited for an inexperienced rider who simply wants a safe horse to go ride on the mountain trails.
Some of our horses are best for a working cowboy who wants a horse that can go all day, work a rope and cut a cow.
Some of our horses are best for someone who wants to get started in reining or cowhorse shows.

Cousin: 5 Year Old Sorrel Mare
I call this horse "Cousin" because I know she is at least a distant cousin to my Smart Little Lena mare- but she is GRADE (no registration papers with the AQHA).
I have raised this horse since she was a long yearling and she is safe, sound, and soft in the mouth. She has a decent stop and will work off your feet quite well and would make a good working ranch horse or mountain horse. If you are interested in barrels (which I am not) she would do well with that as she is a fast sprinter if you ask her to run (which I rarely do past a fast lope.) I currently use her as a riding lesson horse at Rising K Ranch. She is safe for beginners and has been ridden by plenty of first-time riders and children, but in order to preserve her mouth from dudes, I have mostly kept her with at least intermediate riders who will not pull hard on her.
She does well being ridden all day while rounding up cattle off of Kanarra Mountain as well as in the Virgin River Gorge. She has gone on all day mountain rides hundreds of times and has never shown any sign of unsoundness. She is currently shod and stands well for me when I shoe her.
