Carter Acres Quarter Horses at Work

We're always excited and pleased when people share their successes with us. As you'll see, the disciplines range from youth projects to ranch use, barrel racing, ranch versatility events, team roping, clinics and even glamour jobs for advertising, making them truly....VERSATILE!  Congratulations to all these individuals! If you have photos to share, please email them to To view this page's performance horses in more defined disciplines, click on the drop down menus.

and CA Morganite

Kudos for the tremendous showing of CA Morganite for the Billings Livestock Sale in October 2021. Though she didn't sell, she commanded an impressive $6000 bid, the best seen for a two year old while we watched. We'll look forward to seeing more of her as her training continues! (CA Morganite is eligible for the Ranch Horse Extravaganza in Mason City Iowa in September 2022. Idaho is a long way to come, but maybe!!)

and Frost My Sterling
A Carter Acres bred gelding made the cut into the prestigious Diamond McNabb gelding sale! We sold Four L Lady Jackie in foal to LJSR Sterling Roan and "Cherry Bomb" was the resulting foal. He didn't grow up here, but he was bred here! Congratulations to Houck Horse Company for making him into the horse he is today and for the impressive top 20% sale price of $23,000 as just a four-year-old!
