We welcome endurance and Arabian sport horse enthusiasts to our website. Running Thunder Ranch offers an Arabian performance horse program featuring proven performance and racing bloodlines of Bezatal, Sierra Fadwah+/, Fadjur, and LAS Talasman+/ with selected out crosses to other proven racing stallions. See our history page to learn the history of these great sires.

Running Thunder Ranch is a small family owned operation breeding a select group of mares every year. We breed for conformation and athleticism. Our stallions actively compete in dressage and endurance, while producing foals bred specifically to compete in performance / sport horse events. Our foals are raised on the high altitude pastures of western Nevada until they are old enough to start saddle training. Our horses are then schooled in basic dressage principles while gradually being introduced to the trail.

RTR Rimfire excelled in the dressage arena. At 16h Rimfire is a big beautiful stallion with awesome athleticism. In 2007, Rimfire was Region III Arabian Sport Horse Reserve Champion Training Level Open and earned a California Dressage Society training level plate with seven rosettes. Rimfire’s superior size and conformation complimenting the depth and breath of his athletic frame makes this stallion an excellent choice for all your performance and sport horse ambitions.

Running Thunder Ranch welcomes future owners looking for a life long companion to reach their competitive goals with. While we sell young horses and breeding, we have a few older horses in varying degrees of training available for sale.
