About us

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. (We've sold over 217 horses to 131 buyers since 1997 in 29 states and several foreign countries).

Rancho del Lago horses and their offspring have been awarded approximately 850 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 theyd like to breed to outstanding lines, at Rancho del Lago, we stand 3 grand champion stallions, Magivo VIII, Saltador ORO, and Inolvidable RDL, as well as a newly imported black stallion with 3 ANCCE stamps, Persiles YET.  These sires have produced 350 foals including 32 national champions.

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!
