Welcome to Rancho del Lago

We're Glad You're Here!Walter & Judy Henslee


RANCHO DEL LAGO sits nestled in the quaint countryside of McDade, Texas - approximately 35 miles east of Austin. Specializing in producing the pure Spanish Andalusian (Pura Raza Española), Andalusian Crosses, and the Peruvian Paso, Rancho del Lago proudly offers award winning horses at fair prices.

A ranch visitor once asked us, “Why do you suppose you’ve sold so many horses to numerous buyers in recent years?” Our response was simple: “Because they found exactly what they wanted.” (We've sold over 90 horses to 60+ buyers since 2004 in 16 states and even The Netherlands).

Rancho del Lago horses and their offspring have been awarded approximately 300 Championships, Reserve Championships, High Point and Movement Awards in Regional and National Shows.

From this award winning stock, Rancho del Lago offers a very competitive foal crop each spring. For those with adored mares they’d like to breed to outstanding lines, we stand 4 grand champion stallions at Rancho del Lago.

Rancho del Lago strives to produce exceptional horses, offers a considerable range of services, and would love to visit you about your horse needs.

Please give us a call or stop by for a visit!
