Based in the Northern Rocky mountains of Gallatin County, Montana, Copper Spring Ranch breeds, raises, trains and sells speed-bred American Quarter Horses that carry popular speed-bred and classic blood lines. This traditional working ranch also raises and sells hay and Corriente cattle. In addition, the ranch stages regional barrel races, team ropings, sales and clinics at the ranch’s modern indoor and outdoor arenas.  Owned by the Gilhousen Family, this contemporary ranch takes pride in following the true Montana ranching lifestyle and helps support this state’s ranching and equine industry.
