About Us

Box K Horton Ranch

Sturgis, South Dakota


I have been involved with riding and using ranch and performance horses all of my life (fifty plus years.)  My focus has primarily been in arena (timed event) performance horses.  During that time a number of bloodlines have had their periods of success and fame.  The horses that were the most successful in the timed events tended to have the ability to perform in other areas as well.  Of all the horses (and their offspring) that have come and gone the ones that have made the greatest impression in my life have been Leo, Driftwood, Freckles Playboy, and Sunfrost.  In 2006, an opportunity became available for my family to get involved in the ranching business.  We decided the best use of our resources (number of acres, location, finances, and passion) was to raise performance horses.  Since that time we have never looked back.  We have been fortunate enough to put together an outstanding representation of the bloodlines we believe will provide you the best equine partners available.

We are currently standing Play Gunsmoke, an own son of Playgun; Flashing Frenchman; and Cerveza Dinero

Our broodmares include: Daughters of Sunfrost, Peppy San Badger, Haidas Little Pep, MP Thriftwood, PC Frenchmans Hayday, and Lone Drifter. Granddaughters of Sunfrost, Leo, Driftwood Ike, Peppy San Badger, Dash for Cash, Miss N Cash, Doc Bar, Docs Oak Sugar, Caseys Charm, Lay a Patch, Drifts Chip, and Mr San Peppy.
