Shadow Hills Ranch
From the Desert to the Bluegrass
Shadow Hills is more than a working ranch- its a brand. Our goal is to be the go-to for all working ranch needs: providing high quality and practical horse training, sales horses, and events geared towards the western horse world.
Established in 2018, Shadow Hills Ranch is a 138 acre working cattle ranch located in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Starting with a small affordable herd but a big dream, we have grown into a competitive operation striving to provide the highest quality beef cattle possible.
Our equine operation started small: only taking in two or three horses that needed miles put on and a more consistent work schedule. From there we have expanded into the realm of problem horses, starting horses, and performance horses.
In early 2020 we started the next chapter of our operation: Western Horse Events. We started hosting a variety of equine events: Sorting and roping practices, a sorting buckle event, an introduction to working ranch cattle clinics, and many other educational opportunities.
In Spring of 2022, Sean was asked to take over as the Team Roping Coach for the University of Kentucky Rodeo Team.
Rebranding the Ranch 2023
Every business will get to the point where things grow, change, and turn the page. Our beloved Shadow Hills Ranch, we are pleased to say, has reached that point. It has become time to progress into the future. That means new look, new model, new location, and new operations.
In 2023, Shadow Hills Ranch transitioned away from a public facility and into a private operation. For the end user, this means training spots are extremely limited and offer a more involving experience to the client. Additionally, this means that the Ranch is no longer in the lesson/clinic and educational field, primarily to focus on the two new operations: S & H Performance Horses and Shadow Consulting and Design.
It Takes A Village

In the equine business, it takes a village! We are so very thankful to have the support that we have! This support comes in many forms- from arena and event sponsors to feed companies, and all else in between! Listed below are the businesses that have helped make our brand what it is today! Thank you for your continuous support!
Whether you have an older horse that suffers from joint pain or you want to protect the joints of your competition athlete, LubriSynHA is the best and safest option on the market. LubriSynHA is vet-developed and family owned, started by Dr. Steven Allday, renowned veterinarian specializing in joint care. Dr. Allday sought to protect joints in a safer and less-invasive way than injections or harmful medications. LubriSynHA was his solution. An easy-to-use liquid is simply top-dressed on food once a day and results are seen in less than a week. LubriSynHA is also available with MSM, LubriSynHA Plus, for added joint support.
