About us

Our Award Winning Program

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 Espaola) and Andalusian Crosses, Rancho del Lago proudly offers award winning horses at fair prices.

A ranch visitor once asked us, Why do you suppose youve sold so many horses to numerous buyers in recent years? Our response was simple: Because they found exactly what they wanted. Great horses at competitive prices.  (We've sold 240 horses to 143 buyers since 1997 in 31 states and several foreign countries).

Rancho del Lago horses and their offspring have been awarded over 1000 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, at Rancho del Lago, we stand 3 grand champion stallions, Saltador ORO, and Inolvidable RDL, RDL Venerable PLC, as well as a newly imported black stallion with 3 ANCCE stamps, Persiles YET.  These sires have produced nearly 400 foals including 36 national champions. Our program has received 3 breeding excellenc awards in the past 8 years. We only charge the stud fee when your mare is in foal with a heartbeat.

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