A Note From The Owner

My first memory of working with horses was riding horse back in the jungle trails and while working cattle with my Dad on his ranch in Paraguay, South America. We lived 1.5 hours from the nearest paved road and had no electricity unless we ran a generator. We had no 4 wheelers only our horses (our favorite was named Pronto, Spanish for quick, because of his quick abilities, speed, and cattle working smarts) along with a little Nissan truck, and a Ford 5000 tractor and Cat D5 bulldozer my father shipped along down from the U.S.A. when he and his brother had moved.

My parents along with my Uncle had moved to a mission and they had taken up
ranching to keep their boys out of trouble. I have many memories from those years, and of later when visiting, of my brothers and I along with our cousins and other friends riding horseback. After only 4 years in Paraguay my parents decided to move back to Pennsylvania, U.S.A. much to, at the time, us boys protests! Back in Pa. my Dad again started his construction and land development business but also bought a farm where we fattened steers and later raised dairy heifers. At the time he also bought a Pinto horse and Welsh Pony for us boys.

I have worked with many horses over the years, along with cattle, and dairy heifers. As much as I enjoy working with them I know the ability of these critters to sometimes get into the dumbest things and situations! As one who understands some of the many challenges that horses at times can present, my goal as the Market President is to design and incorporate into our building those features and safety precautions that are needed for a solid safe Equestrian Facility. Ulrich Horse Barns Barns is owned and manufactured by Ulrich Barn Builders Of California Inc.
