Welcome to Watlington Ranch!!
Our facility is located north of Falls City, Nebraska by the small town of Barada. We are surrounded by gently rolling hills, miles of gravel & dirt roads, acres of row crop and hay, cattle and a close knit community. Just a few miles down the road is Indian Cave State Park, where all year round there are miles of trails open to the public for riding horses, biking, hiking, tours, and guided trail rides-horses provided by the park.
We have stalls for our client horses with daily turnout or, if the client prefers, a small lot with shelter. Currently we have temporary, but safe, stalls & runs as we get permanent ones built in our "new" barn and new fences built for an arena, turn out pens, and a cattle lot in 2017. Every training horse is started in our round pen but as soon as they are ready; we are out riding in the pastures, fields, down the roads, and hauled to Indian Cave to ride the trails or to arenas for exposure to cattle, competitions, etc. During the winter months, our round pen is moved indoors so we can work with horses when the weather gets bad. After a few rides we are outside riding but do haul to a couple close indoor arenas a few days a week.
John & Jo Watlington have many years of breeding, raising, training, and competing horses and cattle. We specialize in starting under saddle, training the all around using horse for trails and cattle work, and correcting issues both on the ground and under saddle. We also offer limited specialized advanced training for barrel racing, pole bending, cow work and cutting; as well as legging up, seasoning, and hauling for those horses. We have prospects and riding horses for sale, check out our For Sale page. Make sure you check out all pages of our website! Let us know of any questions you may have. We are currently working on getting recent videos to show the progress of our personal and client horses. See our current videos on our new YouTube channel "Watlington Ranch: Training Horses". Please friend us on FB so you can stay updated on what is going on with us, client training updates as well as our personal ones, and pictures and videos. We update FB every week, where as the website we only update once or twice a month. Click on the FB icon on the top right hand corner of this page.
Thank you to all our past, present, and future clients for trusting us with the training of your horses, ponies, and mules!!
