Quioak & George Ferrante,
Futurity Finalist

Freckles Bar Bess & Kathie Ferrante,
Futurity Finalist


This year the Ferrante Ranch will be showing at several rein cow horse and cutting events throughout California, Nevada and Arizona. They will return to Italy annually to conduct several cutting and rein cow horse clinics for both open and non-pro riders.

Horses that we have owned, trained and shown have won over $500,000.00 in competitions. Non-Pro and youth riders that we have instructed have won over $50,000.00

We have trained a number of our own champion horses, including "Monta Docs Joe" (PCCHA open futurity cutting champion), "Monta Doc Cola" (NCHA derby cutting finalist), and "Monta Doc Marie" (PCCHA Open Breeders Classic, PCCHA, lassic, Reon Classic Finalist).

We have also trained other champion horses, including "Cutters Smart Star" (NRCHA Gold & Silver Lt. Open Hackamore champion), "Ima Chex Coyote" (NRCHA Amatuer Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion), and "Yellers Golden Lilly" (NRCHA Youth Bridle Champion), plus many other show winners.

In Italy, George has coached top trainers and riders Gianluca Marchesini (winner of the 2002 cutting futurity in Italy), Andera Santini, Carol Telford, and Non-pro riders Nichoel, Michael and Matia Grigolato and many others.

In 1999, George was asked to judge a show in Italy. The Italian Cutters were so happy with the way he judged and conducted himself, and how he helped them to improve their riding, that Guanluca asked if he could come to the Ferrante Ranch in Somis for instruction in cutting. He spent time with George, learning about cutting, good cutting horses, and learning about the cutting industry here in the US.

Guanluca went back to Italy and won the Derby on the stallion "ACH Play with Prizes", the most famous cutting horse in Italy.  

From that time, several Italian Cutting horse riders have come to our ranch for private clinics, and George has conducted five cutting clinics in Italy. We will be going back several times this next year to train and instruct.

Ferrante Ranch now offers a well-rounded training program for everyone. We run some of the best horsemanship programs for riders in California, teaching the fundamentals of horsemanship, safety, cutting, reining and working cow.

With our experience in training, showing and judging we have the ability to make top winners out of good horses and non pro riders.
