A Bar Ranch recognizes the need for good, solid ranch horses and for the past 35 years has worked to build such a program. The ranch became Ranching Heritage Breeder’s in 2012and was awarded2020AQHA’s Best of the Remuda Award which honors the contributions ranch horses have made to the heritage of the American Quarter Horse.

Mike and Martha became Lifetime Members in 1996 and have received awards from AQHA in recognition of Ten, Twenty, and ThirtyYears of Breeding in the American Quarter Horses during the years of 1990-2020.

Mike began serving a five-year term on AQHA’s RanchingHeritage BreedersCouncil in 2015 and now Turner is currently serving on the RHB Council. 5 years ago, Mike created AQHA internships allowing college students the opportunity to experience ranching and livestock marketing firsthand. This endeavor has been rewarding for both the ranch and students.
