Our Breeding History

Ledford Quarter Horses was started by Raymond and Margaret Ledford. Marshall and Rhonda have continued the breeding operation. Our horses are used for ranch, performance, versatility and have proven to be excellent roping horses.

During the 1940s Cowboy P-12 was considered one of the finest horses that ever lived earning him the honor of being the twelfth horse registered by the AQHA.  The Ledford's have been raising quality quarter horses since the 1950s. Pictured is a daughter of Cowboy P-12 and Raymond Ledford.

Pictured is Toots Stevens who was one of the first mares in our breeding program. Toots had a huge impact on our program.  Raymond Ledford thought she was the best mare he ever owned.  She was athletic and good minded. 

Cowboy Double was one of our stallion during the 1970s.  His sire was a grandson of Bar Mount out of a granddaughter of Cowboy P-12.    We have several mares that trace back to him.

Bar O Brand was our primary stallion from 1987 through 1992. Pictured here at hunting camp. We used him for his sire grandson of Sir Chance and his dam was a granddaughter of Cowboy Double and Toots Stevens.


Zanderford Cowboy was by Alexander's Hand a King Ranch Horse by El Vaiven and his dam was a littler Cowboy, Granddaughter.  We used him in the 1990's.


Venturing Cowboy is a little Cowboy Grandson out of a Alexander's Hand daughter we've used him since 1998.
