ABOUT US

 

In the spring of 2003, Gary and Debbie Reynolds, along with others of their family, purchased the ranch land located on Southerland Lane. They began this venture with a small cow/calf operation.

After a short period of time, the Reynolds’s met their new neighbor, Tom Dvorak. He had a talented three-year old gelding in training, and was looking for a buyer for the horse. After much discussion, the Reynolds purchased the gelding. As with the new ranch venture, they were enthralled with the training and prepartion process for the NCHA Futurity, and had much anticipation for the future. Part of this process included hauling the horse, along with other show horses, to prepare for the busy atmosphere of the futurity. Unfortunately, the horse contracted strangles in Reno in the fall of 2004, and therefore, scratched from competing in the futurity. This was the Reynolds first taste of the unforeseen realities of the cutting horse business.

The horse recovered, returned to training, and competed in and advanced to the finals of the NCHA Super Stakes and the fall PCCHA Futurity. The horse was then sold for a nice profit...the Reynolds were hooked!!

They then purchased a promising three-year old show and stud prospect. Once again, natural tragedy struck only sixty days prior to the Futurity. After several surgery attempts to repair his stifle, the stallion was retired before his potential greatness was developed. This disappointment caused the Reynolds to reevaluate their involvement in the cutting horse business, and they then decided to direct their efforts and resources toward the broodmare and foaling portion of the industry.

In 2006, the commitment was made to a 5-year plan to try to develop a successful breeding program. As in any aspect of the equine industry, this too offered challenges to acquire and breed the best quality mares to the numerous stallions available in the cutting industry. The first broodmare was purchased in 2006, two additional mares in 2007, and the 4th mare in 2008. As the 5-year plan began to develop, the entire family, three generations, began to engage in the interest and energy of the ranch. The grandchildren, especially, anxiously anticipated the spring foaling season.

Today, RCJ continues to strive to produce the best and healthiest, quality foals to offer to the public for purchase. We continue to upgrade the broodmare band, and seek the best cross from the numerous sires present in the Cutting Horse world. As such, we present our website, featuring our broodmares and offspring for you to enjoy...
