About Ranch Tours and Demonstrations

let us entertain you  

IXL offers the opportunity for group tours to visit the ranch.

We have a program designed to both entertain and educate

HISTORY OF THE PASO: The Paso Fino is America's 500 year old breed. Although the Paso Fino has been bred in Latin America since the days of the Conquistadors, this unique horse was virtually unknown in the United States until the late 1940’s.  A mixture of three European breeds-the Andalusia, the Barb, and the now extinct Spanish Jennet-the descendants of today’s Paso Finos were transported to the New World on the second voyage of Christopher Columbus. Used as foundation stock for the remount stations of the Conquistador, they carried their rider for days over mountains, open ranges, and dense jungles, paving the way for exploration and conquest.  Over time the horses came to be known as Los Caballos de Paso Fino,“the horse with the fine step.”
arena seatingWe are happy to meet the bus at the front gate on an elegant Paso Fino that is representative of the breed. Join us for refreshments in the lounge and walk about the stables enjoying a country atmosphere. Then join us at the covered arena as we demonstrate the versatility of the "Rolls Royce" of horses.
We are hosting Houston County Precinct Buses with groups from Churches, Retirement Homes, Commerce Chambers, Special Interests, Clubs and Community organizations. The Red "Hatters," Antique Car Clubs and Commercial Tour Agencies have enjoyed our show.
