Smokey Mountain Ranch is located in Diamond Fork Canyon in Utah County, Utah. The ranch has a long history of ranching; beginning with sheep, then cattle, and now a large herd of registered Quarter Horses. The surrounding area is full of history enriched with stories of Indian and settler battles, Spanish explorers, Spanish gold, and old railroad towns. The ranch offers a unique mountain atmosphere but still within a convenient distance of the city lifestyle, only 50 miles south of Salt Lake City.
Smokey Mountain Ranch's breeding program has focused on the legendary Mr. Gun Smoke crossed on such lines as Freckles Playboy, Gay Bar King, Doc Tom Tucker, King Fritz, Colonel Freckles, Senor George, Opie News Flash, High Brow Hickory, and many others. This carefully selected choice of foundation line bred horses has resulted in horses that offer extreme athleticism, lots of cow sense, soft eyes, kind dispositions, and plenty of personality. The ranch herd consists of the largest band of Mr. Gun Smoke bred mares in the nation. The brood mare band is ran over several mountain pastures allowing plenty of room and terrain to help raise and strengthen the athletic foals. Smokey Mountain Ranch's philosophy is to allow the horse to be a horse while capturing its natural talents and abilities through natural horsemanship methods.
