The Tommy Manion Ranch is located in “Horse Country USA” – Aubrey, Texas. You can’t drive up Highway 377 without noticing the beautiful Spanish style home and the infamous stallion names listed at their front gate.
The Manion familys vision of becoming a world class breeding operation came to light as they narrowed their focus to breeding the best and most prominent cutting horse stallions in the industry.
For over 35 years, Manion Ranch has stood many of the leading cutting sires including the legendary SMART LITTLE LENA who spent his life at the Tommy Manion Ranch until his passing. In his show career he earned $743,000.00, and he is only 1 of 3 horses to ever win the Triple Crown of Cutting, To date his offspring have earned more than $39 million.
Tommy Manion began his career showing American Quarter Horses in various events including halter, western pleasure, western riding and reining.
Since November 2014 the Manion stud and one of the industries leading cutting horse sires SMOOTH AS A CAT is standing at WEATHERFORD EQUINE BREEDING CENTER.
SMOOTH AS A CAT is HIGH BROW CATs leading siring son and the only NCHA Horse of the Year to sire not only one, but two NCHA Open Horses of the Year. Only 3 Stallions have ever sired an NCHA Horse of the Year and sired an NCHA World Champion Open or Non-Pro Horse. They are: SMART LITTLE LENA, HIGH BROW CAT and SMOOTH AS A CAT.
At Aged Events in 2017 alone, SMOOTH AS A CAT has sired 58 Champions & Reserve Champions, and 185+ Finalists, resulting in total offspring earnings of $21,900.00+ Million (as of June 2017).
With a vision to provide the best and most prominent bloodlines in the cutting horse industry, the Manion family continues their success story with more than 41 World Championships to date, many of them with horses from their own breeding program.
The Manion Ranch breeding program consists of a carefully selected broodmare band and today’s most sought after cutting bloodlines.
