Welcome To McLaughlin Ranch

McLaughlin Ranch Cutting Horses was established in Wilton California in 1994. The Ranch is owned by Jeff & Kay Barnes, and was developed with a vision to breed and raise Cutting Horses of uncompromising standards.

The Barnes family designed and built the Ranch in Wilton California as a complete facility, not only housing the broodmares and foals, but also a complete training facility for the show horses set up for a professional trainer.

The prospects are raised at the ranch, at which time they are prepared for sale as yearlings or sent on to training programs in both California and Texas to establish a show career. Brent Erickson handles the California horses at the Wilton facility, and Gary Gonsalves trains the Barnes Texas horses at his Millsap facility.

Proudly, the Barnes cutting horse operation has many noteworthy achievements proving the success of the bloodlines developed over time.
