About Us at AK Paint Ranch
Welcome to AK Paint Ranch, where our primary dedication is offering the exceptional stallion "Echo" for stud services. Breeding with Echo ensures that your favorite mare produces a foal of outstanding quality, correctness, substance and a wonderful demeanor.
As breeding manager, my focus revolves around two key goals: ensuring your mare receives care as if she were one of our own and ensuring your satisfaction with the arrival of your new foal.
My journey with horses began at the age of nine, working alongside equine veterinarians. With a degree in Equine Science and Breeding Management, I managed an Arabian farm in Rancho Sante Fe, CA, followed by managing *Ambition 1995 3 gaited National Champion Saddlebred in Sussex, NJ, before returning to college to further my education.
The story of Echo's lineage is rooted in thoughtful choices. After admiring Echo's sire, Diesel (BBF Dr Dixon), for a year, Kevin and I purchased Diesel at the age of 5. Diesel became a cherished part of our lives, and after breeding him for 17 years, we sadly lost him in 2018. Echo (BBF Dr Dixon X Prissy Puddin), born at AK Paint Ranch in 2014, emerged as a beacon of promise, and was purchased in-utero by Theresa Jenkins. Echo was nurtured by Theresa for 7 years until he returned home to us in 2021.
Echo embodies the remarkable qualities of his sire, displaying a remarkable willingness and disposition. Despite having a late start entering the show ring in 2022 as an 8 year old, his accomplishments include 3x Grand Champion Stallion. We will continue to support Echo and his progeny under the guidance of our dedicated trainer, Ashley Miller.
Registered with both APHA and Pinto Horse, as well as an APHA Breeders Trust Stallion, Echo ensures the registration advocacy and value for your foal. We love maintaining connections through pictures and stories and eagerly anticipate Echo producing the foal of your dreams.
At AK Paint Ranch, our clients become cherished friends. Please let us know how we can be of help.
