Good Shepherd Ranch is a perfectly great rescue! Francesca is wonderful! She's very honest about whether or not a horse would be a good fit for you. She also is willing to spend as much time as you need to get to know the horse so you can be sure the horse is the right fit.
I bought a horse from you last year, Duckie. I now call him Reno and I absolutely adore him! Having spent his life doing ranch work it took a while for him to settle in to this semi retired life but he now understands how good life and people can be. Thank you for finding this gem. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this boy and he has his forever home with me!

From Debbie -
I can't thank Good Shepherd enough for their help to give our four horses a new home and brighter future! They meant the world to us and they were well cared for. Our hearts will mend, knowing that someone out there will receive a horse of their Dreams. I know for a fact that Good Shepherd will ensure that they find their soul mates. Thank you Good Shepherd, for your kindness and open arms. Forever Grateful.
From Stephanie -
Can't thank you enough for helping me and my mare. We are lucky to have found you and I will be forever grateful to the people who adopted Maggie.
Hi Good Sheperd,
You guys totally rock! I am so happy with my girl I adopted from you last year!!!!
She is the sweetest, best trail horse that I have ever had the pleasure to ride or be in the presence of.
I know you she was donated to you folks to supplement your rescue program (which I am happy to part of) and you trained her but I hope her previous owners will know that she is greatly loved & will be with me forever!
I feel I have been rescued & its all thanks to you!
Hope all is well Roy and I have been having fun this weekend and just thought I would check in. take care sally
It seems that every time I see one of your videos (bud) I become impressed all over again. Then, to read your inspiring and dedication to our innocent animals just humbles me. you treat animals with kindness and respect and gain results that most other sellers can only hope to aspire.
Fantastic work you do...website is great. Wish more people would teach horses to drive as when there is one for sale appropriate for novices...they sell!
Best wishes for continued success...horses and people connected are fortunate.
All's going well with Pumpkin (now named "Pal"). Have been on a few good rides so far and he has done well. Bonding going ok and we seem to like each other a lot. Thought you might like a picture of us after a great ride!!! glad to share my good luck with everyone!!!
I just had to tell you today I rode up are street and back. He was so smooth it didn't even feel like I was ridding a horse.
He's such a good boy we really love him an the others like him to.
We'll just wanted to say hi and thanks again.
You really have a great gift of matching people up with the right horse.
Don't work to hard an take care keep in touch.
thanks again for another great horse.:-):-):-):-)
keep in touch.
BARB & BOB
You stand behind what you say and your honest and trustworthy. I believe in you, I just wish more people were like you. That is why I am coming back to you.
Hello Good Shepherd!
Thanks again , there is not enough words to explain how awesome you are.
I always enjoy and appreciate your health and training tips. they are
informative and very important, so I just thought I would take the
time to thank you! sincerely, eva baker
Hi.... I've ridden 3 days in a row and riding tomorrow......Zen has been a very good boy and listens. The mounting block lesson took only 1 time for Zen to figure out. Everyone thinks he is fabulous... and very good looking.....and very cute....including his name. He's quiet at feeding time which thrills Frank. Doesn't gobble his food...makes it last. I'm sure there may be a test or two....but we're just taking our time...Together.....
Just thought I’d drop you a few more recent photos of Duece here in Las Vegas. Only one with he and I (can’t seem to find anyone with a camera when I’m riding… ), but thought you'd enjoy seeing him again. The rider is my wife Karla, who keeps sayin' that she'd trade her mare, Rosebud , to me for Duece any time. (I don't think there's really any chance of that, as you can see in the last photo, but...?) We really love this sweet boy, and he seems happy and healthy. Thanks again for getting us together!
Hope all is well with you and David, and your "herd".

Francesca, just wanted to thank you for pairing me with the horse of my dreams. I am 64 years old this yr & have been riding & owned horses just bout all my life, but never loved a horse this much. Not only is this horse everything I wanted but you have really made a difference in boosting my confidence with taking lessons from you.
You have been wonderful & I thank you.
Just wanted to send you a few pictures of Lady Bug and her family. Lady is
everything you said she would be and more. The miniature donkeys just love her
as well as the two other horses. She is such a pleasure to be around at the barn
or on the trails.
Hope all is well with you and the farm!!
Hello Francesca -
I have been meaning to email you on Sassy's progress for a while now.
First off, I did rename her Cherokee. She settled into her new home
nicely and has been introduced to the other older mares she goes out
with. She took to the hot walker right off and goes on it once or twice
a week for a little bit if I do not ride, but I try to ride her in the
arena 5 times a week. With the work & diet she has lost some weight and
is sleeking out, especially since she shed out that long hair coat. Her
mane has grown back out a good inch now.
She is so much queitter than my old horse, so that makes a big
difference for me. I am trying to work on collecting & slowing her down
just a little so I can sit her trot better, although she moves nicely at
the posting trot.
Anyway I am enjoying her & will keep you updated.
know how much I appreciate your teaching ability and horse knowledge, which made for very pleasant and informative classes. And, of course, I wish you well.
I wanted to let you know that cheech is settling in nicely and whata smart lil boy! Real sweet pony and I'm thankful to you for letting him go to me! He hauled home like a quiet little dream and unloaded just fine. Also wanted to let you know that I found a brand on his neck. It's BLM. I can't make it out completely yet. He's still got some shedding to do. But that's a cherry on top! Mustangs are super duper animals. Looking forward to some great yrs with this boy :D.
There is no more professional or honest in this business than you. I recommend your Ranch to all. You & your company stand above all.
Suede is doing well, we love him :)_____________________________________________________
It’s been awhile since my last update, and I have SOO much to share with you!!!
On October 6, Sassy and I attended a NATRC clinic and practice trail ride! The ride itself took almost 4 hours, and it was at up in Desert Hills. It was very challenging, but guess what??? It was just a practice competition ride, but Sassy and I took first place with a score of 99!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was our FIRST real trail ride!!! Well, that boosted my confidence enough to take her out on trails without a big group of other riders. Actually, there were 2 pretty rough spots where another rider was so frightened she got off her horse and was in tears. Sassy and I helped this other gal and her horse, and the riders who were closest to us at the time, all said if Sassy and I hadn’t been so calm, there could have been a serious disaster. J I was calm, though, because Sassy was so calm; I have so much confidence in that horse. She’s taught me SO much, and amazingly, Francesca, I do remain calm in “iffy” situations; I attribute that to Sassy for teaching me how important it is to remain calm. She is one hell of a horse!
Incidentally, I even had a vet ask me if I’d ever consider selling Sassy! She told me she’d buy her in a heartbeat, and that Sassy is one of the most sound horses she’s ever seen! Without even thinking I smiled and politely said, “no way!” That horse is inside my heart, and I wouldn’t sell her for a million dollars! There’s no price on my love for her, and her love for me. Deena still says she’s never seen a bond like Sassy and I have. Even people who we meet out on the trails tell me that horse would do anything for me! I know Sassy’s a gift from God; I just know she is, and I thank Him every single day for her. J
David and I took Sassy and Maverick camping up at Houston Mesa in Payson. There’s a trail up there that’s about 22 miles long; that was our second trail ride!! Sassy SHINES out on the trails! That ride was even more challenging than the one in Desert Hills, but Sassy did absolutely perfect! She is so sure-footed, and there’s no “hill or mountain she won’t climb!” (as the song goes) Honestly, this horse is afraid of NOTHING!
We go out to Coon Bluff every weekend now, and one of Sassy’s favorite things to do is to chase coyotes! LOL Yup! Right through the desert. Oh, and if there’s a bush in the way that she can’t get around fast enough, she jumps it! LOL See how much she’s taught me???
A great thing Sassy will do for me is stay ground tied!!! I will take one of my split reins and put it on the ground in front of her; I say “stand” and honestly, Sassy does not move! We’ve been working on that for awhile; she’s so smart and learns things so well that she amazes me. It’s not just myself who thinks she’s intelligent; I’ve had trainers tell me the same thing about her! She’s a thinker!
We cross the river out at Coon Bluff! This last weekend when we crossed, the water was deeper and my feet were in the stirrups in the water and Sassy never got nervous! She just did her calm, confident walk through the water dodging the fish. J
I’m going to include some url’s of videos showing Sassy and me in different areas, and climbing and descending, etc. When you have time (I know you are very busy, but I just really want to include the videos so you can see how wonderful she is), I’d love for you to view them. Feel free to put them on your website if you’d like to!!
Deena and David and I really want to come see you soon! I am so proud of the accomplishments Sassy and I have achieved, I just can’t wait for you to see her again!!!! There’s not a more perfect horse for me anywhere!!!
By the way, Sassy and I just celebrated our SECOND anniversary! Hard to believe it’s been two years already!!!!!!
Here are the url’s for when you have some time to look at them. J
Not sure if I told you, but I hadn’t ridden a horse in almost 19 years! Never did I think I’d be cantering again, let alone able to gallop!!!! She and I do gallop sometimes! J I know we have a lot more practicing to do, but Deena said in two short years, Sassy and I have literally climbed mountains.
When you do see some of the videos, notice how easily Sassy climbs these hills!! Some of these things are very, very steep! She is so strong, and incredibly sure-footed, and she certainly doesn’t mind blazing our own trail. If there’s not a path already there, she’ll find a way up or down.
Take good care, Francesca; as always, thank you for letting me keep you updated on our beautiful mare.

Recommended first time horse owners to her for sales and training.
I just want you to know that the horse we purchased from you Lady Bug is doing great. She is a wonderful horse and we are enjoying her immensely. She put on some weight and is getting along with her pasture buddies. Two Arabian geldings and Two Sicilian donkeys....
Wanted to thank you again for
your understanding, honesty and great personality. I wish you the very best with your business in 2013. I will highly recommend you to anyone looking for a QH.
I love Butterscotch - he is always ready to ride. Happy New Year and thanks for helping me find a New Horse!
Francesca is the best. She helped me out by taking my old friend Richie Rich who was just about to be put to sleep because of his age and he was just not usable and I was boarding him an unable to have him and a horse that I was able to ride both. I have been through a year of medical issues and now needed to get out and do something to help both my mental and physical health. Francesca had a wonderful mare that will be great for me and she will find a great companion home for Richie. It was a win win for all of us thanks to Good Shephard Ranch and Francesca. Great and honest person. Thanks Eileen
Nice, thanks for sharing, you folks are wonderful, love what you do. ea
Preacher and Baby are awesome horses, we love them!
They have blended in quite well and we are thoroughly enjoying them.
John & Shonda
We have known Francesca and David at the Good Shepherd Rand for over 10 years. They have bought and trained our horses, they have always been there for us, willing to support and assist as best they can. Francesca has paired us up with good solid horses the match our abilities and experience time and time again. and has found good homes for those that we have out grown; you definitely become a part of their extended family, i would recomend them to anyone looking to buy a solid reliable horse.
You have been great people to deal with, thanks for showing and selling the right horse to me!
You are so helpful and honest.
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO THE GOOD SHEPHERD RANCH!
Kelly and Family
This is VERY exciting for me to send to you!!!!!!!!! I’m sending you the video link of my latest accomplishment with my beautiful Sassy. In the video, I am riding her BAREBACK and am reining her with ONLY a ROPE HALTER and LEAD ROPE wrapped around her neck and looped through the rope halter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn’t that fantastic??? She and I have come a LONG way, and I am so proud of her that words cannot even express how I feel.
This video is about 6 ½ minutes long, which I know is probably too long. As soon as I have a few minutes, I will edit it and make it shorter. In the meantime, though, if you have time to watch it, I’d be thrilled to know what you think. Toward the end of the video, I even ask her to back up using only the rope halter/lead rope; several of my friends told me that after she backs up and we proceed forward again, Sassy ‘looks’ like she’s as proud as a peacock of herself. J So cute!!! I actually rein her in circles, change directions, halt, go forward, back up, stop, start, reverse direction, and we are even gaiting, not just walking! I did do a very, very slow canter on her, but my husband missed video taping that part. I’ll have to ask him to take another one. I’m just thrilled; a year ago I was barely learning to canter (again) and this year I’m cantering without a saddle and with only a rope halter/lead rope! And I do give the credit to Sassy! She’s been so patient with me; the bond we share is nothing short of an amazing miracle. J
One more thing…….we were able to have a gooseneck hitch installed in the bed of our truck, which means we are now able to use Deena’s trailer!!!! I would feel SO privileged if I could bring Sassy to see you, and if you may have some time to ride with us, I’d be forever grateful! I think you will be so happy to see how beautiful she looks (we take wonderful care of her, I promise!) and would love for you to see how happy she is and what a bond we share! Deena still insists that in her 30+ years of dealing, owning and showing horses, she’s never seen an owner share such a close, loving, trusting bond with their horse! That makes me appreciate Sassy even more, although I don’t know how that’s possible. LOL I couldn’t love that horse anymore; she means so much to me, it’s difficult to put into words.
Keep selling horses! I always tell people about you!!!! J
Hope you are doing well; just think, the cooler weather is just around the corner now.
Take good care, Francesca,
Carol (and Sassy!) J
Maria looks like another great horse. You all do such a good job. I am always impressed with the horses you give us the opportunity own. Judy Lanning
Just want to let you know how well Bonita is doing. We renamed her Harleigh, and she has been learning Clinton Anderson's method. She still has lots to learn. We recently took both our horses up to Payson, Harleigh was great through all the trails up there and we got many compliments from others about what a quiet, well behaved girl she is. My daughter also recently took her to the salt river and she had a blast splashing around and playing in the water. She's such a silly girl and always makes us laugh with her big personality! She and our other mare totally love each other, the second they are in a pen together they immediately start grooming on each other.
We absolutely love her and wanted to give you a quick update and let you know how glad we are that we found her!
Kristi and Deidra Dunkel
I think she's an amazing, healthy horse! I also know she and I have formed an incredible bond. It's beautiful how much she trusts me now. :)
Of course I give the majority of the credit to Sassy for having patience with me and for teaching me all that she has so far. This past week she gave me a few more lessons on galloping. LOL You know what's amazing? She's succeeding!! I let her gallop a few short distances several times on our morning rides (before it gets to triple digit temperatures!). That little horse absolutely loves to run! I actually had the opportunity to have a trainer ride her about a month ago. He shows in reining classes and cutting competitions as well as trains horses, and we met through a mutual friend. He showed me how to flex Sassy (she learned it within 5 minutes!!) both on the ground and under saddle. I'm doing fine on my riding skills, learning more every day, still have a long way to go! This gentleman, however, is an expert rider and Sassy responded beautifully. It was a treat for me to watch her, because I'm always the one riding her, which means I don't get to 'see' how she does. Anyway, Steve (the trainer) told me that I am extremely fortunate to have found her, especially for my first horse. He said she is extremely smart, and she has a very strong desire to please the rider; additionally, he told me she is a 'go-getter!' She'll walk if you ask her to, but she absolutely LOVES to move out. :)
Hope you are well, and as always, I thank you for continuing to read my ongoing updates on the life of my beautiful, intelligent, talented and affectionate mare! I will also thank you FOREVER for selling me the 'love of my life.' :)
Carol and Sassy
I just appreciate your encouragement and patience (especially answering ALL my questions)!. You are awesome!!!
GOOD SHEPHERD RANCH:
Thank you Francesca for all your great trails, advice when providng lessons and busting my confidence. Through out the 15 years that you and I have been friends you have taught me to be honest, be tough, and never give up. Your wisdom about horses is amazing. I lost a horse named "Wilbur" in 1995 after he was in our family for over 18 years and when he died I thought I had LOST THE WORLD. After that I did what every sad person would do and that was to buy a horse after horse trying to find "Wilbur". Recently you found a match for me when you found "Willy". Him and I are inseparable. He is my best friend. You truly know horses and people. Thank you for all that you have done and do.
*purchased sight unseen*
Had a wonderful ride on Ranger today. He is a joy to ride - so
responsive and smart. He's a real go getter and likes to be in the
front! I already love him and he is getting used to me. We are
becoming close pals. He even let me clean his eyes out this
afternoon. That's pretty trusting.
How are you? I hope you are doing well. :)
February 18 was Sassy's and my one-year anniversary! Yup ~ we brought her home February 18, 2011! I think we've made a lot of progress in one year.....I know this email is going to be kind of long, so I'll apologize right away for that. If you read it a little at a time when you have time, I'd be so grateful. You are going to be SO proud of the INCREDIBLE horse you sold me!
When I'm brushing her, she now takes her head and turns to look at me resting her chin on my shoulder! I stop brushing and tilt my head to be able to just hold the side of my face against the side of hers; she'll stay cuddled like that for maybe a whole minute sometimes! Even my husband has gotten choked up a few times when he's seen that!
I know I've told you before, but I have to tell you again ~ I love that horse more than I can explain. I would not trade her for ANYTHING! Someone teasingly asked me what I would do if somebody offered me a $50,000.00 horse in exchange for Sassy. I looked them straight in the eye and said, "NO WAY." It has nothing to do with money; it has everything to do with Sassy's personality! It's her, it's who she is.......not what she's worth monetarily. It's her heart and soul; to me, she's a very, very special horse .... so hard for me to explain.
We are working on getting a trailer ~ soon! Sassy and I are really bored and need to 'get out' to do some long, challenging trail rides. One of my goals is to be able to come and see you, and maybe if you are going out riding, Sassy and I could follow along sometime? (I wouldn't want to infringe or anything like that; I'm just thinking if you're taking people out trail riding or something, we could go.) If not, I totally understand. It would mean so much to me just to be able to see you again, give you a hug and say thank you again in person, and have you see Sassy!! I promise you she's a happy girl. You are a fabulous horsewoman, and I am SO glad and SO proud to have gotten Sassy from your ranch.
Ok, I'll write again (next week) so that you have time to go through this 'novel.' LOL
Carol Chase (and Sassy!)
I love the horses you present they are so well trained, You do a great job.
I look forward to doing business,
Thank you for all your kindness and taking such wonderful care of
these horses. :-)

I rode Alice last night and she did great. She is very responsive and quick I loved it.
Thank you so much, if I could have another horse I am going to you.
(Purchased sight unseen)
Thank you, again, so much for all you have done for the horses. I am so appreciative. You sure came through in a pinch with my last minute need.
Hi Francesca, thanks for keeping me on your email list. I love looking at the new horses. FYI Peaches is just a doll, doing great, & I am so happy with her. She is being treated like a queen, just ordered her a new pretty blanket.Happy New Year to you all out there.Lark
Just wanted to let you Know Killy's is doing good we went on a few rides one 2 hr ride and one 4 1/2 hr ride with 6 other horses and he did great . Thanks he is a very kind baby .

I have really made progress at riding, and I owe it to Sassy. We canter now just about every single time I ride her, and it gets easier each time. I want to thank you again for re-training her at your ranch, and for selling her to me. To me, she's the very, very best horse in the world; in fact, I think God made her just for me, and I'm so grateful!
Ginger is doing great in her new home! She is all settled in and she is feeling like a horse, or maybe a cow.
Her best trail buddy is an 8 year old black poodle named Shadow. Shadow is my dog and she is literally Ginger's shadow. They get along really well. Ginger is as spoiled as spoiled gets. She sleeps in a blanket and on a hay bed. Remember how you said she was running with cows. Well she sleeps on the ground like one too. She sleeps for hours and hours on the ground. I usually take my homework up with me to the stables and I will lay with her and do my homework. Sometimes I fall asleep up there... She just cuddles with me. I am so thankful that the people at Good Shepard Ranch made this work for me. I'm planning on making a career out of it. The last horse really left a hole in my family and I, but Ginger has been able to fill the gap, and overfill our hearts. This weekend my mom plans on getting on Ginger for the first time. This will be the first time my mom gets on a horse since her bad accident almost 6 years ago she had with my first horse, Pepperjack. If this works out, my mom might end up buying another horse. A real old, calm, big lug of a horse. Thank you so much again, and I will be sending more pictures of Ginger and I.
My husband and I have been looking at your website for months and are so impressed with the quality and philosophy of everything you do! We are interested in taking some horseback riding lessons and then would like to purchase two horses.
I want to really commend you on your wonderful attitude. You and I seem to be the only rescues that actually call people back and have a good attitude. I have run into so many sour and rude people in this work, that it's not even funny. I called other rescue places, and emailed and no one ever got back. You were so bright and cheary and even thanked me, when it's you that deserves the thanks for opening your place to these rescues. I am so proud and happy for the work I've had the privilege to do over the years, and I'm very sad to put it on hold while we make this move, but I have to put my parents' needs first. So again, thank you, and yes, please please do keep in touch.
Warm wishes and hugs,
Sorry it has taken so long to say hello and let you know how Twiggy is doing. She has acclimated very well to her new home and the other horses. She is a great trail mare and I am having a great time riding her now that the weather has cooled off a little. We will be doing some camping up near Mesa and the Salt River with her and the other two next month. Here is a picture from our ride last weekend.
Have a great day,
Diane and Bill Mossbarger
I thought you might like the latest picture of Josie & me. 2 Josie is AWESOME!!! We just love her (Kim too). She does great out on the trail & along the roadside by her self. Just needs lots of wet saddle blanket (which she will get plenty of). Thanks again for letting me buy her. She is great.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for selling me Sugar. Her new name is Josie. It fits her & it is a play on her sire's name of Jose. LOL We all made the HOT trip home just fine. She is a very nice, sweet mare. I think she is just what I have I been looking for - for a long time.
After 19 years away from horses, I am now back into riding and the proud owner of a BEAUTIFUL mare. I bought her from Francesca @ Good Shepherd, and I could NOT be happier! My horse has taught ME how to ride again, and has increased my confidence tenfold! She is WONDERFUL. Francesca truly cares not only about the horses, she honestly cares about her clients. That little gal has answered every email I've sent her ~ I've asked her for suggestions, advice and guidance ~ and bless her heart, if she can't respond right away, she sends me a quick note to say she'll follow-up later! Folks, it gets NO BETTER than that! She is reputable, she is dependable, she is honest, she is genuine, she is dedicated. If you're looking for a new 'best friend' to ride on trails or in the arena, go to Good Shepherd Ranch. Thank you, and God bless you, Francesca! (*>*)

Up date on Ben... Better than ever! Love that little guy. He is exactly what I dreamed of. And Francesca..YOU ARE THE BEST.So honest & truthful. I would advise anyone looking for a horse of any calliber or level to only buy from YOU!!. As for Bruce & me...YOU ARE THE ULTIMATE HORSE GIRL!! THANKS SOOOO MUCH AGAIN, MARLA BEMIS

Oh my gosh, sassy has a beautiful canter! I'm so excited I've gotten to the point where I feel confident to do that with her!!)
we took poco (now little tuck) up to a gymkana this weekend and our 7 yr old nephew rode him all around the horses seemed like he belonged there. marsha took him for a short ride after had a blast. thanks so much
I just want to say that I am very GREATFUL for everything you have done for me and the well being of my horses.
Again THANK YOU, I don't think you know how much I really mean that. Everything you do with your horses definitely shows!
I have been going to good shepherd for all my equine needs for quite some time now. They are always happy to help me in any and every way they can. I have purchased many fine horses from them and they are always 100% honest. I never have any surprises and I put 110% of my trust in the folks at good shepherd ranch. Whatever you need, whether it be a good horse, lessons, advice or just want to go for an excellent trail ride, they are thee only place to go!

here is our "Mr. Freckles" aka Padre. he is doing very well. My kids love him and he fits great into our herd! he welcomes me everytime a walk outside with a deep course "huhuh", its so cute. Thank you for finding such a wonderful horse to fit into our family. Just as I had started to give up on the look for a Pokadot horse too! Thank you for helping to make my little girls dream of a pokadot horse come true. He truely is heaven sent. Funny i have to laugh he is shedding his winter coat and there are several big white patches of hair in the pasture....haha I attached a picture of him with my two girls riding him hope it turns out ok :)
Just wanted to give you an update.
Padre is doing great!
his new name is Freckles, i liked Buzz lightyear but he is Navies horse so i let her name him.
He is getting along great with the rest of my herd and now has marked his roll areas with white patches of hair all over my pasture haha!.
I will get some pictures soon and send them your way.
Thank you again for such a wonderful boy!
I recently purchased a sweet palomino quarter horse at
Good Shepherd Ranch and have enjoyed my lessons there and practicing riding him. Their trail rides are awsome - beautiful sandy washes, lots of variety in desert flora, and great views of the mountains. Soft sand in the washes enhances the ride with nicely "cushioned" trotting and loping opportunities. I plan to take my family there for future rides aslo!

Thank you so much for the pictures of Tumbleweed, she looked right at ease in the water.
Anytime you need a reference, dont hesitate to contact us.
We stopped by the girls late this afternoon, they seem at ease and enjoying their surroundings, they were busy watching some cows and calves off in the distance - Tumbleweed is a very alert horse and doesnt seem to miss much.
We alsowant to thank you and your crew so much for all you did, it made buying our new horses a fun experience.
Roger & Nancy
We have been doing business with Francesca at the Good Shepherd Ranch for 2 years. Our horse journey began when we took in a neglected, "green" 5 year old gelding. He had many behavioral issues and we needed help. Thats when we called Francesca. She came out to our home and taught us how to care for and train a horse. Anytime we had a question---we could always call her---and she would have the answer.
The next step in our journey, would be riding lessons at her ranch. We learned safety, hoof care, the right way to tack a horse, bareback riding, arena work, trail riding and so much more. All of this fun led us to our dream horse Viggo and a best friend for our horse at home. We first saw Viggo on Good Shepherd Ranch web-site. The next day we were dropping off hay for a rescue Francesca took in, and there was Viggo. We spent quality time with him and rode him. We knew instantly he was the horse for us and took him home that week. We couldn't be happier.

Great place to do business

Francisca is great.She has helped me and my family learn so much about horses.I thought I knew a lot already but she has taught us so much more.I bought a horse when first moving here from a private seller, had a lot of problems but I understand the buyer beware rule.Francisca helped me with that horse, then sold the right horse to me for my children.That horse has been a great fit.I highly recommend Francisca to anyone looking for that "RIGHT FIT" in a horse! If it is too late she can help fit you with your horse.They are just good, honest, polite people!The program they run there and the horses they sell are so beautiful and great quality for the price.I have seen Francisca and her staff work long hard hours and they always put the horses before themselves.They are no nonsense trainers,I can't say enough good about them!They put so much time and effort into every horse before it can be available for sale. I think they rock the horse world and are a credit to the equine industry!

Hi guys. Wow, I can't beleve I purchased a horse sight unseen. I was a nervous wreck that week I waited for her to get here. Everyone told me not to get the horse, especially without seeing her in person first. I new for sure I made a huge mistake that I would regret. I have to say that not only is she a beautiful mare, she is an awesome mare. Everyone rides her including my 5 year old son. I laugh at all my friends who doubted my decision & doubted you. Now my friends are going to you for horses & they owe me big for the great horses the now have. HA. Now they are actually able to ride the horses they have. Goodbye to the crazy rodeos they used have. Now we are all happy, go on big group rides every sunday & as much as I would like to take credit for it all we owe it all to the Good shepher ranch, thanks!
You wont find anyone else worth buying horses from. Good shepherd is worthy of your trust. They are professional & extremley kind. You will not be dissapointed, They are wonderful!

Wow, I am beyond words with the good shapard ranch. They are such great folks & do great things with horses & do only great things for their clients also. I have been a long time customer of theirs for many years now! I have purchased 3 horses from them & I have referred MANY friends to them. Every friend that has purchased from them has been nothing but pleased with their honesty & quality of horse they have purchased. I have never seen so many quality horses sold to so many folks. I am so amazed also with the rescue work they do. They give so many horses out there a 2nd chance to live & have a new life! If it were not for the good shapard every horse they sell might not have the quality of life they now have but thanks to them those horses won't have to be in limbo anymore. I don't know what me & my friends would have done if it were not for the honesty & compassion they have at the good shapard ranch. Good shapard is highly respected in the horse community & VERY LOVED/APPRECIATED!

It's been a while since my last letter to you, so I wanted to write and let you know that "Lucky Boy" formerly Bugs is doing great! He is enjoying his home with us and our rides every other day around our 6 acres. He has made it through a rough winter without a blanket in fine condition. He is very personable and likes to join us in our inner property when we allow him over, but he tends to drink all of the Bird Bath water even though we set out several buckets of water for him. We think he is a very special boy. We have an automatic Watering system in his stall/corral so he is always able to get as much water as he needs. He likes to run and has made several soft dirt areas where he likes to lay down during the day and evening. We can watch him enjoying his corral from our kitchen window.
We took him to get his teeth floated 2/16. He now has good, healthy teeth. I always learn so much from other horse owners and that appointment was no different. Lots of good advise and valuable practices are exchanged.
I am enjoying my boy so much thanks to you. Lucky has been the perfect addition to our family.
Take care of yourself,
Well, I broke the 1st rule to 1st horse ownership, considering I purchased my horse Lily sight unseen from Francesca. As a newbie I really wanted to make sure that the horse I was getting was going to suit my riding style/ability and Lily did just that! Here in CA, there were many 'beginner' horses available but when I went to see them they were nothing like what was advertised! When I told 'horse people' that I had purchased a mare unseen they all gave me very skeptical eyes. Now Lily is the talk of the barn, she is SO calm and very forgiving of my mistakes that everyone is quite impressed (and maybe a bit jealous). I also appreciate the fact that Francesca still helps me with all my questions even though we are 400 miles apart. For what it is worth, I would do this all over again and I recommend this ranch to people everywhere. Genuine HONESTY and QUALITY are things Francesca offers with all her horses. Lily has a great home, now if I can convince her she is a horse and not a puppy!
January 23, 2011 by Megan in Spring Valley, CA
Lily is the talk of the ranch, everyone is very impressed with her calmness and gentle manner! They all say I am very lucky to get such a good horse, sight unseen. If anyone is looking for a horse around here I will definitely recommend you!
I am a horse trainer from the east coast and spent some time in AZ where I found these Ladies from a news paper article. I went out to their ranch and in a short time got to know them. I have very high standards when it comes to the care and emotional state of horses, so when I was there for a few times I knew I found myself an outstanding facility. These Ladies are great caring and accommodating to clients. There is no way that you will not be satisfied with your ride out in the great wild west.

I REALLY love Rowdy (Howdy)! Even my husband has fallen for him and my daughter is enjoying coming out and riding. I really hope my neighbor Peggy will get a horse from you just like him.
I spent a lot of time trying to find the right horse for me. That meant a lot of things including gentle, sound, smaller and most importantly one that I felt a connection to. It took a while and the good shepherd was very helpful, patient and always there to allow me to come out and try several different horses. When I met Rowdy (Howdy) I knew right away that he was the one for me. I finally made the decision and now I am so happy with him and am enjoying every bit of time out at the barn riding and taking care of him. Thank you - Francesca and Julie.

I bought my first horse from Good Shepherd Ranch last year. He is such an incredible horse, we returned to Good Shepherd to add another to the family and ended up with two more! They are everything Francesca promised they would be. I would recommend them to anyone.
Sparky, Teddy, Ashley and I went out for an amazing trail ride today. He is a great horse!!! I rode him with the hackamore like you recommended and he was great. He is gaining weight and is already spoiled : ) He gets along great with teddy too. My son is in absolute love with Apache too. I really can't thank you enough.
I found that they were very honest when it came to finding the right horse for the right person! I would recommend them to anyone!

Hey guys! We are having a great first week with the new additions. I can't believe how much more work it is and I can't imagine how you take care of all of the horses you have. I thought you might like to have some some pictures of your very happy clients with their horses. Hope to see you all again soon, Heather
We purchased a pony for our granddaughters from you "sight unseen" based on your ad in Dream horse and the video you had posted. WE could not be happier with this sweet little girl. She was everything you represented her to be and more. It is such a breath of fresh air to deal with honest people in the world today. This pony is sound, sane and just perfect for our purpose. I woud encourage anyone who want to buy from you to trust your assesment of your horses completely. Thank You! I would not hesitate to purchase a horse from Good Shepard in the future. You even delivered her to our ranch!!

Thanks Good Shephard for selling me a fantastic horse.
I understand that there is never such a thing as the perfect horse but I just about have one now thanks to you all there!
I see how hard you folks work & it shows. Your efforts show in everything you guys touch. You are amazing hard working very polite people. I did my checking on you before I purchased & The horse community is so brutal, crap talking, soap opera like but despite the awful community I can see You have a lot of people who respect you & great reputaion out in the horse community. Now you have another client who loves you & will spread the word about the Good shepard ranch. I wasn't sure about buying a horse sight unseen but all went well & franchesca did great at sending me the right horse for me.
Everyone on the horse world pretty much sucks but I have found a light (franchesca/good shepard) in the soap opera known as (as the hoof turns). You are great fran & I love that you won't talk bad about anyone!

I was very new to horses and had a six month old filly that was giving me problems. I was referred to Good Shepard through the feed store and had a great experience. Francine thought me how to deal with the problems I was having and thought me not to be affraid. I really enjoyed the training sessions and am very happy with the experience. I highly recommend Good Shepard Ranch and will use them in the future for anything to do with hourses.

Jr, (aka Jake) is doing very well in his new home. I rode him the day he arrived and he did great. He is a really sweet horse and Suzy is absolutely in love with him, she follows him everywhere. It is nice having a horse out back that has a mellow personality to match hers.
Thank you for a great morning. I feel so much more relaxed knowing that my biggest childhood dream is on the not-too-distant horizon.
You guys are great.
I would like to spread the work about the Good Shepherd Ranch. These are caring people who rescue horses to rehibilitate and place into loving homes, which is how I came to know them. I recently adopted one of their recent rescued horses, and was given expert riding lessons to assure that I, as well as my new horse would start out with complete comfort and safety to begin learning about each other on our Ranch. The trainers were very professional as well as warm and friendly. They left me feeling that I have good friends I can turn to if I have any questions about how to care for my horse in the future. I am truly thankful to have found their web site and finally found the right horse for me to enjoy and care for. I recommend the Good Shepherd Ranch as a wonderful training center and a place you may want to check out for your next or new horse. They always have horses needing loving homes.

I purchased a horse a few days ago from the good shepard ranch & I worried I paid a little too much but when I took that mare home & starting working her & roping off of her I was excited but I had no idea what was in store for us! I took this mare to her 1st jack pot roping a few days after buying her & WON a pretty good jack pot just a little over $2500!!!! I have never purchased a horse of this caliber for what I now know was a VERY fair amount of money on a well bred, gentle quiet roping son of a gun! I am just so greatful for good shepard being honest about this mare but really didn't give her enough credit! I have been roping for many years & never purchased a horse that works for me the way this mare has without a few years training! This mare & I are gonna do great I think & I am very greatful for good shepard giving a deal on her or I would have never been able to take her home & win the jack pot. I can't wait to breed this mare to their stallion & win on her some more!

GSR is such a great friendly place to go . My husband & I just love Francyne & Dave, they are just good people. Their ranch is beautiful & clean. They always have great quality horses & are always honest. We purchased some great horses from GSR, they are great horses & have never done us wrong. We trust & highly recommend the GSR. Anytime we have had questions they have been there for us & tolerate us no matter how annoying we have been! You won't go wrong by purchasing a horse from the GSR. They are great with horses & put their for sale horses through certian test's they need to pass before they are ready for sale, so you know you are getting a great horse. We have known GSR for 8 years now & we are always impressed with them & how they conduct their busness. You can be sure that if you are buying a horse from them or sending one of your horses to them for training they will do a great job! Runnig a business is not easy we run 3 & people can be ridiculous but GSR handles all well!

We can not say enough great things about Francesca & her hubby @ the Good Shepherd Ranch.
We first went on trail ride, which was wonderful!
Then when we were ready to buy our first horse, she really spent time with us making sure he was the right one. She really listened to out needs too. I took lessons from her and she was so patient and gentle with me, what a great teacher.
When we were ready for horse # 2 we knew just who to call. So she found us two great wonderful horses! They were everything thing she said they would be, an extremely honest lady. She is such a delight to do business with. We have also purchased saddles and tack from her. We loved everything we bought! We also used her to delivery our first horse, and she helped us load our second horse.
Her stables were clean and all the horses were well cared for.
We would defiantly do business with her again and we recommend her to anyone looking to buy a horse, trail ride, purchase tack, or lessons, etc...

Francine and our Ranch have been doing business for about 6 years now. We have had many horses trained by her and have been very pleased. She has a very gentle hand and way with horses and we have never seen her lose her temper at a difficult horse. We have had a colt and a filly from her stallion Patriot and they are just beautiful with gentle spirits. I bought one of Francines' personal horses and just love her to death. I would and do recommend Francine to everyone for training and breeding. We also buy and sell horses from each other. Try Francine out and I am sure you will be pleased with her!!!!!

This is Amy Mayfield, a client of mine purchased Joey from you a few months ago. I wanted to let you know that he has just been WONDERFUL. I couldn't have asked for a better match for her daughter. She is totally confident on him and he is always rock solid for her on the trails or the arena. He is shedding out his coat beautifully and he is just coming along wonderfully. We are getting him ready for Fair this April and I expect them to do very well together :) Just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you being honest about him and selling quality horses. Good old horses like him are hard to come by and are worth their weight in gold.
We have used Good Shepherd Ranch on many occasions at our church. The covered wagon rides are always the hit with all of our families. The Christmas Carol hayride was awesome! I would highly recommend Good Shepherd Ranch for any and all events. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I am writing to recommend Francesca & Good Shepherd Ranch. I purchased a wonderful horse from her a year ago. We were looking for a safe, sound, well-broke trail horse that could accomodate both beginners & experienced riders. This horse is exactly what we needed. He is kind, gentle. beautiful, & bombproof. This horse was honestly represented to us &, although we did not meet him before he was delivered to by Fran, there was no doubt that she was honest about my horse & concerned that we received exactly the horse we wanted. He was delivered safe to the stables in Flagstaff where I board & the whole business deal was professional & carried out in an exemplary manner. I was absolutely satisfied with the service she gave to myself & my family. In buying horses, the purchaser needs to be so careful! There are so many dishonest "horse traders" out there that it is easy to make a mistake & end up with a horse that is nothing but a problem. With Fran you will get honesty & someone who cares!

First thanks for all your help and being so nice, even when you were busy! I
think Linda is going to miss your place and visiting you all more than Billy or
myself combined. I know we'll be up to visit, if just to trailer Billy for practice for a
short trip. Any excuse will do and whenever you get the chance you should
drop in and we will be thrilled to see you &
catch up. When ever the topic comes up where and how we found Bill I can't
say enough about the whole experience and The Good Shepherd Ranch I'm
sure you will continue to do well. You can always find a sterling
recommendation should a need arise. I look forward to seeing you soon and at
every opportunity. Thanks again! Keith

Francesa thanks for selling me a great horse! you are VERY sweet & represented the horse honestly which is a very hard thing to find.
I have purchased & sold many horses over the years, now am just looking for a good horse to retire with. At my age after getting thrown & kicked I was very picky & hard to deal with but you did. So thanks for providing for me the right horse.
You know, I have seen how much good you have done for horses & your clients, you are wonderful.
With my experience I know it is impossible to please everyone out there especially with horse people! But I can see & have heard how much you try.
You tried very hard to find me the horse I wanted & needed, you gave such a great effort to help me & I can't thank you enough.
No one else has ever given me the time & help you did, so again thank you & I will ALWAYS recommend you to anyone I can!
PLEASE continue to do what you do so I can send more folks your way because you are the only one I trust in this market

Just want to thank you again for Smokey. He has been alot of fun and everyone here likes him as much as I do. My daughter rode him along side a busy road and he never even flinched.

You have the most beautiful trail land I have ever rode on. Thanks for the ride on your beautiful horses!
you guys sell really nice horses & do great rescue work.
We have purchased horses, sold horses, used Good Shepherd (Francesca) as a Trainer, for lessons, breeding her study to our mare, purchasing tack and just plain, good old advice. She has been totally honest with us and has gone out of her way to accommodate us with all of our needs. It has been a great pleasure to do business with Good Shepherd and Fracesca. You can't go wrong using Good Shepherd for all of your horse related needs.

I purchased a horse from a private seller in my area. They lied to me & sold me a terrible horse. I wished I would have known about the good sheppherd ranch back then. If I would have known about them back then I would have not got screwed with this horse.
But thank God for good folks at the good sheppherd ranch, they sold me a good horse that I could use right away & trained my previous one that was terrible. Now I own both horses & am happy with both. If it were not for franchesca at the good sheppherd ranch I would be at a loss with the first horse I purcased & would never trust anyone in the horse industry again. They are a heaven sent.
They are a good place to deal with. Good people!

just wanted to say that I have sent 8 of my horses to the good sheperd ranch for training & they have done a spectacular job with every one of them.
I was a professional trainer in Montana before coming to Tucson & am now to old to train my own. They train them the way I like & are always honest & fair.
I have also bred several of my mares with their stallions & I am always pleased with the quality of crop their stallions produce with my quarter horse mares. I am a quarter horse fan, don't care for fancy color too much but am a big fan of paints since breeding to their stallions. Their stallions have great minds & amaze me every time I use them or spend time with them. One of the foals from their stallions I have put into reining & am very pleased.

Cool - So nice to deal with you Franchessca. You are such a nice gal! Thanks for helping me & my wife out so much. Thanks for selling us a horse my wife would be safe & comfortable on. The lessons really helped her out so much, you did such a good with her & I can not beleive you got her riding again after her accident. We are so happy & could not have done it without your help & our new boy Jack.

WOW! - Good Shephard ranch has been so pleasant to deal with. I have been an experienced horse woman now for 40+ years. They placed me with the right horse & helped me find the right gear for me & my horse at such great prices & really great quality. They are so helpful & so friendly always.
They are honest & I love their policy with the horses they sell, if you buy the horse & it doesn't work out just bring the horse back to them & they will resell it & search until they find you the right horse. They really care for the horses & their customers! They have a very nice user friendly facility with GREAT trails out of their back yard! I bred my broodmare to their stallion last year & was so pleased with the quality & demeanor of the foal. I will be using GSR for as long as I can. They are so resourceful & helpful in every way. I HIGHLY recommend them for any or all of your equine needs!
I have had MANY bad experiences in the equine industy & they are a breath of fresh air to deal with.

Trail Ride - Loved the trail ride on Sunday it was so nice!
Horses - Our family has purchased 3 horses from the Good Shepherd Ranch & I have to say that we are so pleased! They are great horses. We highly recommend them.
They also did a great job breaking my colt.
Oh Boy! - Have to say I am so pleased with how thay do business. I bought the horse I wanted from them, that they tried to talk me out of because they knew she wasn't right for me. But despite my stupid effort to pick the most pretty one, I picked wrong. The horse was exactly what they said. Which I was surprised to meet an honest horse person. So even though I did not listen to them they were not mad & still took the horse back. They honored their bring back garuntee even though it was my mistake not theirs. So they sold that horse for me & have since personally picked out the right horse for me. I can't beleive how much they did for me & have been there for me every step of the way, despite my stupidity.
I highly recommend Good Shephard ranch to anyone for all their horsey needs.
Thanks so much.
P.S. I am so happy with my new horse, you were right all along he is exactly what I needed & wanted after all.
by Lynette AZ
I bought a mare & a gelding from the Good Shepherd Ranch & we are so pleased with the quality of their animals for the price! They have great facilities & they have helped me out so much. They found me a great deal on a saddle & tack, they even delivered the horses for me. I had to do nothing, they took care of everything for me & my new horses.
They are very knowledable & me being a horseman for over 30 years now have learned some things from them.
I highly recommend them, especially if you are a 1st time horse buyer they will really help you & guide you in the right direction.

Good Shepherd Ranch is the best place I have ever dealt with. I am a first time horse owner & they have more then helped me every step of the way. They helped find me the perfect horse oor me & the right tack. They helped find me everything I needed under my small budget I had saved up. They are always here for me when I need them, even when I have the dumbest questions they make me feel good about it.
They are great people!
I have been with Good Shepherd Ranch for 3 years now & continue to be happy with them, my horse, everything!
Thanks guys for making me a very happy horseman!
