Rance E. Butler

Rance Butler grew up roping in East Texas. In 2003 Rance went to work for Dunn's Outwest Arena in Ardmore Oklahoma. Self taught or better yet horse taught Rance took each horse as an individual and learned from all of them. The horses he trained and sold went on the be everything from USTRC mounts to Rodeo horses. Rance also placed on a couple in Ranch Horse Competitionsadn was a top 10 qualifier at the 2011 Supreme Extreme Mustang Makeover . 

A number 8 heeler and number 7 header Rance knows what it takes for a horse to be something a person can win on. He emphasises a good foundation and a solid start. Patience is the key, and just time spent riding will make a better horse and horseman. Rances colts are started with the intention to teach them to handle their body and their feet confidently. A colt who knows where his feet are can do anything.
