Welcome to Holy Cow Performance Horses

Holy Cow Performance Horses LLC is located at San Lucas Ranch in Santa Ynez, California. Even though this operation is a relative newcomer, opening its doors in 1999, it has become one of the leading breeding operations of performance cow horses in the state of California.

In December of 2012 Holy Cow Performance Horses LLC expanded operations to a second location in Weatherford, Texas introducing Holy Cow Performance Horses Texas LLC. Breeding, raising and showing quality performance Quarter Horses is our passion. We’re dedicated to breeding quality working cow performance horses that are world class in their respective fields. Reined Cow horses, Cutting and Reining horses as well as all around working ranch horses are raised at our California and Texas facilities..

An operation of this size, cannot be run without a competent staff and the professional advisors that have guided Holy Cow Performance Horses LLC to be the success it is today. We, along with our staff, invite you to view our web site and become acquainted with our operation.

We always have a fine selection of performance horses for sale. View our Sale Barn and please contact us to make inquiries about horses for sale.
