opportunity to purchase a 4-year-old gelding that is bay roan, been to 
the World AQHA Ranching Heritage show in Oklahoma, and ridden by trainer 
Becky Amio. TWO BOYS PEPPY PLAY, “Boss” is the right size, stout, very 
athletic gelding. This gelding is pretty and has a quiet nature. his

used him moving cattle, taken him to brandings, absolutely no buck here, 
and 100% sound. If you’re looking for a horse that will turn heads, we 
feel he’ll work for just about any level of rider.  Checking out Becky

Welcome to Lauing Ranch

Our horses and their pedigrees carry significant percentages of the blood of many legendary sires. Our goal is to produce top quality performance, using-type Quarter Horses for the ranch and the arena. We specialize in horses with good conformation with an emphasis on good feet, legs, athletic ability, good dispositions, and trainability. Our family began ranching in Central South Dakota in the early 1900s and as the third and fourth generations ranching here, it has taken years for us to build our program to the place where it stand today. Foals from our ranch go on to other breeding programs, to the arena for team roping, calf roping, team roping, team penning, barrel racing, cutting, and to be used as working ranch horses. These horses are mounting competitors from 4-H and Little Britches, High School and college, to the PRCA all across the country. They are cowy horses that are smooth moving across the pasture and quick on their feet in the arena. Horses raised here will do well anywhere.

To produce these kinds of horses takes some pretty special mares. Our broodmares consist of a high percentage of roans with a gray and a buckskin here and there. The mares will typically stand 15 hands and 1100-1300 pounds, all of it on good feet and bone.

We fully believe in the ability, disposition, and the usefulness of the breeding program we have put together over the past several years. We try to raise stout horses with good bone that can handle a full day's work, cover a lot of miles and be able to pull from the horn. The best way to find out what Lauing Ranch has to offer is to see the horse for yourself. Visitors are always welcome. We would love to show you our horses.


Lauing Quarter Horse News!!

Proud and extremely excited for Becky Amio Horse Training, LLC 
qualifying two 2015 Lauing Ranch roan geldings in Ranching Heritage 
Challenge Ranch Riding Class at the 2019 AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse 
World Championships in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Becky started this two big 
roan boys in 2017 and has given them an outstanding start. Such a great 
Beck Amio says, "What a fantastic experience for myself and these two. I 
have a saying that has really stuck in the last few months and it goes 
“You would have never known if you hadn’t of rode them”. I would have 
never known how they would have performed if I never took them off the 
Ranch. I’ve drug calves with them, I’ve gathered horses with them, I’ve 
given riding lessons on them and now they’ve been to the big city with 
hundreds of other show horses and endured extreme heat and rode the best 
they could on the day of the show. I’ve learned so much in the last week 
I can hardly wait to apply it the next horse and I can’t wait to do it
