We raise and sell horses with the speed, athletic ability and minds needed to excel in today’s arena as barrel horses, rope horses, English Event horses and more. Stop by our ranch near Hebron, North Dakota and pick your next winner from our many outstanding prospects. ~ Bonnie & Paul Orvedahl
Selected for their outstanding pedigrees, conformation, performance records, and disposition, the stallions compliment our great broodmare band. Our mares are daughters of proven sires of speed and performance horses~Roll the Cash, Panther Mountain, Royal Shake Em, Treasured APHA, Cherokee Treasured APHA, Angels Policy, Bullys on Fire, Hard Cash Dash, Mia Cash Too, Red Eye Special, Proper Reality TB, Western Bugs APHA, and Big Country APHA.
All foals by our stallions, past and present, are eligible for our Flying O Ranch Barrel Incentive Program. It’s simple, no fees to pay, no ‘special’ events to attend–each year, the horse with the most reported verifiable barrel winnings, wins $1000. Just make a copy of the check or the official form listing times, names etc. from the event and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your horse’s registered name….and that’s it.
New to our program in 2015 is Furrtreeous First, black 2012 AQHA son of Furrtreeous SI-102/AAAT/ROM/Superior (SW)6 wins to 4, $424,651 and out of a daughter of what many consider one of the best sons of First Down Dash, First Place Dash SI-99/AAA/ROM
(SW) 14-6(1)-1(0)-0(0), $64,160. Thank you to Schwartz Quarter Horses from Dickinson, ND for making it possible to own this well bred individual. Furry, as he’s known here at the ranch, brings much in superior genetics, conformation, and is “Mr. Personality” also. We’re looking forward to his first foals. See his photo and pedigree below.
To Be Announced, aka Chrome, joined the stallion line up in 2013. He is a son of Splash Bac, SI-93/AAA/ROM, $135,505, Champion 2yr Old Racing Colt and out of a daughter of All American winner Merganser SI-105/AAAT/ROM, (SW)23-13(4)-3(0)-2(0), $1,373,704; he sired 10 foal crops that earned $1.8+ million including AQHA Barrel Racing & Pole Bending World Champions MISS MERGIE & THE MONEY MERGER. Chrome’s first foals will be born this season, and we can’t wait! Chrome’s a big bay horse, with perfect conformation and an impeccable pedigree!
Rock Climb TB, a winning son of the World Champion Sprinter Gulch (Mr Prospector x Jameela) brings race winnings of over 8 million dollars in the first four generations of his pedigree. His first TB daughter to the track is a winner on her first out. He’s pictured below on the left. Rock Climb’s foals out of APHA and QH mares are gorgeous. We expect great things from them. He crosses especially well on cowbred mares!
Flashy Bugs APHA, pictured below on the right, is a barrel horse himself, a 1d, APHA World Show Top Ten sire, and Dixie Nationals winning sire. He’s the son of our reference sire, Western Bugs APHA who was also a 1d barrel sire, had ROMS in multiple events and was AA race.

And, in partnership with our friends Bruce and Kristin at Aus Ranch Performance Horses, we recently purchased Ata Boy James, by Ivory James and out of a daughter of Heza Fast Man! Thank you Bruce and Kristin for entering this ‘venture’ with us…or shall we call it an ‘adventure?’ And thank you to the Newcombs from Oklahoma for raising this nice colt! Ata Boy James will be siring some nice barrel prospects in the northern states!!
