Horse Heaven

Our friends refer to the ranch as Schiller Land –The Texas version of Disney World.

It’s a great escape, tucked back in the Post Oaks away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We keep a “dude” string of horses for our guests—You should see our friend Brooklyn native Will Bill Stanton sit a horse. We even have some beginner barrel racing mounts—our daughter Sinclair’s hand-me downs—for those willing to attempt sport. Aggie coach Kevin Sumlin’s son, Jackson, did and almost won a check at our Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic this year.

The pride of Schiller Ranch is our ever-expanding herd of prize-winning barrel horses. The queen is undoubtedly Insane For Fame, my Craig’s List find that turned into a $180,000 Champion. We’ve added a King to the mix—Epic Leader, a talented young stallion that competed against, and occasionally bested, our Queen. We are anxiously awaiting their foal due in the spring of 2014.

Much to John’s chagrin, we’ve run out of room and are adding on to our barns. We have a training barn, a.k.a. Latricia Duke’s barn, where the competition horses and the horses in training reside. We also have, and are expanding the breeding barn, a.k.a. Donna Hanover’s barn, where the mares foal, babies are raised and our new stallion Epic resides with his companion Mighty Man, the miniature pony.

Simply put there are horses everywhere!
