Bruce has specialized in starting, training, and showing reining horses since 1986. He is an NRHA Res. World CH, multiple Futurity finalist, World CH finalists, Regional CH, State CH, etc. His non pros have been qualified for Regional Finals many times, and his horses have won multiple year end awards for their owners in the Open and Non Pro venues.
Michelle, or Shelly, as most people know her, runs a full service, custom saddle shop at the ranch. A rawhide braider most of her life, she also makes the custom saddles and show tack, chaps, working gear, and personal items, down to spur straps and business cards - visitors are always welcome to stop in the shop and see some of the work she is doing. She also helps out by handling the photography, marketing, and editing of video, pics, etc, for the Stable and her own business, as well as taking care of the billing. She also shows a non pro horse now and then, as time allows!
Bruce's parents, Doris and Speck, have been an integral part of his success over the years - they help out wherever they can, and are a mainstay at our home and the facility.
The facility offers a 20 stall barn, most stalls are 10x23, all are matted, with a misting system, timed lighting, auto waterers, and pine shavings. An indoor arena, round pen, track and riding trails round out the facility. Centrally located in N Texas, Bruce is 50 miles to the Will Rogers Complex in Ft Worth, and 3 hrs to OKC. Now accepting a few aged event horses for Open level competition, and Non Pros - give Bruce a call today, come on out and visit us - it's reining in Mineral Wells!!
