Chris and Betsy Ketcham have been aficionados of the P.R.E. since meeting the first one in person in 1994.

We began our search for a riding horse and two years later, we purchased our first P.R.E., a weanling filly in Mexico. Since then, we have worked to build a small breeding program which aims to produce a handful of very high quality foals each year.


We have focused on the bloodlines we have found to have superior athleticism, tractable temperaments, and structural integrity. Our core bloodstock is  imported from Spain and Mexico, and we have developed our program using the best available bloodlines in the US.


Our Philosophy
The P.R.E. is a superb riding horse, as well as being extremely athletic and beautiful. We like to give each adult horse a training foundation which includes a start under saddle using modern horsemanship methods and time riding out in the country where they are exposed to varied terrain, cattle, water, and a host of other experiences, preparing them to be solid citizens throughout their lives.


Most of our adults and young stock live in small groups in pastures where they are free to run and play and to develop good social skills. They receive optimal nutrition on our irrigated grass pastures  and of course we keep them up to date with a vaccination and worming program.


Location
We are located in south eastern Oregon, just over the border from California.   Our horses are raised on our working cattle ranch, where our young stock have plenty of room to run and play for optimal social and physical development.


Visitors are always welcome - please call for directions and appointment.
