My family has had the pleasure of buying a horse from Solo Select Horses who was everything they said he was and more. He’s been a great addition to our family and we look forward to his future. This past year we’ve also been blessed with the opportunity to bred our mare to Hired Gun. When a hand written thank you card came in the mail - I was shocked! Such a little thing means so much. Wonderful business people and incredible humans! Thank you for the past, present and future encounters. - Whitney Reilly October 2018

Melanie has been great to work with! Quality horses and very good customer service. -Cindy Malott September 2018

Melanie is the best! I’ve bought 3 horses on the internet from her and everyone has been more than I expected them to be. I love the auctions and follow all of them. Best place to keep up with the true value of great horses!
I live in Virginia but have made it a point to visit her ranch, see her horses and meet her ranch hands in person. 
Very impressive! -Jim Manning, September 2018

Awesome people, great experience. Very available to chat about a horse, high quality horses, honest people. Highly recommend and have and would go here first to look for more horses. - Katie Martin, August 2018

My mare arrived today and we love her. Can't wait til our Hired Gun baby arrives next spring! Melanie was extremely helpful throughout the purchase and breeding process and we look forward to doing more business with Lowrance Horses in the future. Thanks again! -Dana Voorhis August 2018

Bought a very nice filly from Melanie a year ago. Qualified for the world on her this year! I would recommend anyone looking for a great horse to contact Lowrance Horses and talk to Melanie.-Justin Jenkins 

It’s been a great experience working with Melanie and Lowrance Horses. They’ve been very patient, accommodating and helpful. They have some of the most beautiful and talented horses I’ve seen. I look forward to buying from them again in the future! Definitely 5 stars! -Ellen Neal 

We recently won Little Joe in an auction and he is everything that was promised! I highly recommend these guys! They were extremely nice and definitely delivered what was promised! Facilities were very clean and all the horses looked great!

Great lady to work with! She is honest and up front. Bought one horse from her and can't wait to buy another . She has nothing but top notch horses that are breed to the top. Absolute pleasure to work it. - Kimberly Maurine, June 2018

Melanie always has high quality horses for sale/for stud & handles business with integrity. She’s helpful, kind, easy to work with, and honest. Whether you are buying from her or breeding to one of her elite stallions - you can not go wrong! I’m blown away with how well she handles business. Professionally run every which way. Highly recommend this ranch to anyone for your cow horse / ranch versatility needs!! - Lily Bragg June 2018

I recently bought a 2 year old filly from Melanie and absolutely love her! This girl is everything Melanie said she was and more! Melanie was even kind enough to take my sister and I on a tour of her ranch where we got to visit with all the mares and foals. Super great experience! I would recommend Lowrance Horses to anyone and everyone! -Sheryll Whitney, June 2018

This was the first time ever purchasing a horse online. I was nervous about the whole process, but let me say that after my experience with Melanie and Lowrance Horses I would not hesitate to do it again! I did spend a few months watching the type of horses that were being offered and could tell that they were quality and well represented with videos and Melanie's input on each horse. Lowrance Horses walked me through the entire process, beginning with the purchase, an equine insurance agent, then keeping the mare in training for approximately a month and a half, (which I highly recommend, Jimmy is an excellent hand) and finally the horse transporters who kept in touch with me over the 1900 mile haul. Thank you Melanie for such a good "buyers" experience and most of all thank you for my Mobsta Chic, I just love her! -Eileen Daniel January 2018

I've been watching Lowrance Horses for awhile waiting for the right time and right horse for us. Melanie answered many questions on multiple horses before we decided on a colored up yearling filly. If your looking for a well bred, high caliber horse, I would keep an eye on here because they have plenty of top notch horses to sale ya! -Tanner Lowe

​We purchased a pregnant mare and just recently got to meet her! She's a beauty and has a pedigree to match! Melanie was more than accomadating while we made the decision to purchase her. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of her Automatic Cat foal! We had the pleasure of meeting Melanie, Hired Gun, and seeing Lowrance Ranch a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to doing more business with Lowrance Horses in the future and especially value making a new friend.- Sarah Kearl 

 I bought one horse out of Woody Be Tuff and at age 6 she is the most amazing mare! I could not be more pleased and everyone who see’s her tells me what a nice mare she is - Level headed and aims to please. She really takes care of me! She is everything and more than what was I told. You represented her well and I’m extremely satisfied! You also handled all the transport to California and it went so smooth. Thank you! I tell everyone about your FB page and my experience.  -Trish Hafely

I just bought my first horse at auction, great experience. All happened fast and Melanie was GREAT! All arrangements made in less that 30 minutes and filly was on a rig heading west the next morning. Filly is all and more than she said. We couldn’t be happier!!! And... I would do again and again!- Tia Capp

I contacted Melanie late in the season in reference to obtaining a breeding to Automatic Cat. She responded quickly and was great to work with. She and the staff at The Ranch made this breeding season easy. Tomorrow is the day we find out if we have a little Automatic Cat of our own to look forward to next year. Thank you for great service Melanie. -Halli Jackson

I purchased a 2015 Stallion by One Time Pepto from the Lowrances, it was my first time buying a horse site unseen. He was exactly what they said he would be, I am very pleased with him! I don’t think I would go anywhere else in search of a serious performance prospect!
- Vanessa Andorfer

We have purchased two great horses from Lowrances. Melanie is always quick to respond to questions and always very friendly. Highly recommended!!-Chas Crago

I’ve bought three broodmares from Melanie and they’ve all been exactly as described. She’s always super responsive to questions and takes pride in her reputation. It’s very hard to find a great partner like Lowrance Horses!- Ken Leroux

We bought 3 horses from Mel in the last 6 months and there where all exactly the way she represented them and she has really helped our horse herd- Colby Hunt & Bonds Ranch- Ft Worth, TX 

Just bought horse number 2 from Melanie and I couldn't be any more please! She was exactly what she told me she would be, and I absolutely love her already! 
Second one I practically bought sight unseen because I had so much trust in her after the first deal and watching how she runs her business! In a world where so many people are shady, It's so refreshing to know there are trustworthy honest people that really love what they do! 
I'm very certain I will continue to buy horses in the future from Lowrance Horse! Thank you Mel for all your help! -Karlie Boles

I bought two pregnant mares from Lowrance horses in January. They have been and are outstanding people to work with. From answering all my questions about the horses, arranging transport, obtaining breeders certificate, and marketing advise, John and Melanie are top of the line. I would recommend them to anyone. -Gordon Amstutz

We bought a Rockin W stud colt from Lowrance's and they were awesome to work with! He was the first horse we have ever bought sight unseen and they sent video after video as well as pics of everything I feared could be a conformational flaw and when our colt arrived he was just as perfect and sound as each video and pic!! Not to mention the purchase process was all very simple and easy!! Thanks for our great new stud!! -Katy Hughbanks

We have bought two very nice geldings from the Lowrances. They are exactly what Melanie said they were. We will definitely be back for more. It is refreshing to deal with amazing people! -Amy Moon Hunter

I recently purchased a horse from Melanie, and honestly, it's been one of the best purchases I've made. Melanie knew what I was looking for, and went above and beyond to find the perfect fit. I am the proud owner of a gorgeous, young gelding whose future is extremely bright. I'm positive I will make more purchases through Lowrance Horses. Thank you, Melanie -Jolene Lamb

I have purchased 4 horses in the last couple months from Lowrance horses. Melanie is so easy to deal with and the quality and genetics are like no other. Super impressed and looking forward to spending the rest of my children's inheritance with Lowrance Horses. -Lisa Messerly

We have bought several horses from John and Melanie. In the beginning the whole internet horse purchasing thing was pretty scary. Lorance Horses has been so straight up with all of the information on everything we’ve looked at. Melanie has helped us tirelessly with all phases of purchasing, housing , shipping, insurance, etc. In all of our businesses it is rare that we have an opportunity to deal with folks with as much personal integrity as John and Melanie. We cherish our relationship with all the folks at Lowrance Horses and look forward to doing business with them for years to come. -Ken Law

We bought a 2yr old from Melanie and her crew pretty much over the phone then drove 4hrs to her place and he was EXACTLY what she said he was. When they tell you something about their horses you can take it to the bank. We plan to continue to purchase prospects from her for heel horses and barrel horses. Great people and awesome horses! ~Cody Watson

Bought a horse off their auction page sight unseen, one of the best horses I've bought. Easy to do business with. ~Kortney Cleavland

Good people. Good horses. Not very often in this business do the two get put together. ~Trey Wasserburger

We have bought several horses through Mel and John and have loved all of them! They are extremely knowledgeable about horses, honest as the day is long and will work very hard to find a horse to fit even the most discriminating and picky buyer. They stand behind their horses and, unlike some other horse sellers, are not prideful and pretensions - the customer definitely comes first with them! ~Sarah Barber

We bought a colt from the Lowrance in December. It was hassle free and very straight forward. He was exactly as they explained and they gave us the option to return him after his pre purchase if we weren't comfortable with the findings. Great people and honest as can be. Our colt won't be going anywhere. We adore him! ~Erin Beason

I purchased my first Lowrance Horse this year sight unseen for ranch sorting and could not be happier with how she is coming along! I was first attracted to the caliber of horses they were advertising, and when I saw her, I fell in love. She is everything they said and more! Melanie was very approachable, forthcoming and honest with answering all of my questions about her (trust me, there were a lot...). They were also very accommodating and prompt with making arrangements to get my filly hauled to her destination safely. Upon arrival, she was in great condition and had been represented by them just as she was in the flesh (perfect!). I had my reservations at first about purchasing a horse online, but Lowrance Horses has proved to be a reputable and honest pillar in the horse community. I would definitely do it all over again and would not hesitate to contact them again when I am looking for another quality horse! Thank you! ~Nicole Studenberg

I bought a filly, for a client, in November. We won an online facebook auction. The filly was everything advertised. Melanie was extreamly helpful finding us a hauler and even finding us a second hauler when the first had truck trouble. She was an advocate for us and our new pony from the moment we bought her. Buying on line is scarey in todays scam/buyer beware world. But the Lowrance Horse experience was easy and stress free. Honesty and integrity are the keys words i would use to describe this business and its owners. ~Andrea Rossmeier

Outstanding horses, honestly represented, quality reviews and descriptions, absolute integrity. So proud to have purchased from you. ~Michelle Lemley

I am very satisfied with the buying experience I had. Sight unseen (all the way up in Manitoba, Canada) I received exactly what I was expecting. I recommend anyone looking to give Mel a call! ~Miranda Rusinowicz

Gorgeous gelding!!! We invest alot of time with our geldings so they have to be the whole package!!! This little gelding is everything he was supposed to be and more!! Thank you Melanie!!! ~Wendi Jordan

I bought a sight unseen gelding from Melanie in the spring. I told her it was important that he was well broke, easy going, not going to get me in trouble, and beautiful. She hit all marks on the target. Trust goes along way in this business, and I will indeed buy from her again. Thanks Lowrance Horses! ~Laura Teauge

We bought 3 mares from them . One of them wasn't right they took her back and sent us one that was . Great people to do business with. ~Cody Resor

Great horses and great people! Not many people I would trust buying a horse sight unseen from but Melanie is 100% honest. I look forward to doing business again in the future! ~Kasey Hiatt

We have had a great experience with Lowrance Horses. These are top-notch horses and they will be exactly what Melanie says. She has been awesome to work with. ~Tori Smith

Super honest and super nice horse people! You describe what you are looking for and if they don't have it, when they do they will let you know! We have a great Nitaswood/CD Olena mare we bought from Lowrance horses and she is the best on the place! UPDATE! We bought another mare she's Third cutting/Docs Quixote and she's amazing, everything Mel described!! Both of my mares are athletic & so honest!! Let Mel find you a horse you won't regret it! ~Kaylee Patrick

Bought the 2yo Highbrow CD gelding. He is just as portrayed, maybe even better! Lowrance is very easy to work with in all aspects of the purchase. ~Linda Lee

Such a pleasure to work with! They provide a very honest representation of their horses; I highly recommend them! ~Sarah Senn

Top quality performance bred horses, Lowrance Horses has what you are looking for. If they don't have they will get it for you. Started or broke, top notch is what you will get if you purchase from her. They will be just like she says they are. ~Amy Lewis

Melanie w/Lowrance Horses helped us sell our mare Boonlight Bay. BB got the kind of home you hope all horses get. I appreciate when someone is honest & runs a business professionally. From the showing of our horse, vet check, payment & transportation, everything went perfect. Highly recommend Lowrance Horses to buy & sell. ~Felicia Taylor


Fantastic horses & honest people to boot !! Whether buying sight unseen or visiting the ranch, these folks go above & beyond in every way possible. I would recommend them to anyone searching for a quality prospect.~Shaun Rigby

We had an incredible experience. Our Rey Dual daughter is everything and more then what they told us she would be. Melanie and John are honest, fair and knowledgable! We won't hesitate to do business with them again. ~Salye Coles

We purchased a Lowrance horse 2 yrs ago(sight unseen, had her hauled to Oregon) & have been winning checks in the cutting pen since! Great horses & great people!!!~Annie Ellis

I just purchased a horse from Lowrance Horses, sight unseen. She is a 2 y.o. outstanding bred filly with 45 days start. I am delighted with my purchase, beautiful TR Duel Rey daughter that has a great foundation, she already has an awesome little handle on her. She was started right, cant wait til I can purchase another one from Lowrance Horses. Very easy transaction via auction. ~Dana Frymoyer

I was super nervous when looking for my next horse. A friend recommended Lowrance and I couldn't believe how fast I found my perfect horse. As a 3 year old he takes everything in with a cool head and he's gorgeous to boot. Vet Checked and xrayed clean. Will be a repeat customer! ~Vicki Balthrop

I have never bought an animal sight unseen before I bought a one time pepto from you. I could not believe how honest and easy you were to do business with. I promise I am a repeat customer when I have the money. ~Aaron Shahan

We bought a 2 year old. We love our colt he is everything that was advertised and has a amazing mind. We are very excited to take this little horse to the roping pen eventually. ~Amy Mahon

Melanie sold me a 2yo filly by Nic It In The Bud that we absolutely love! She's one of the few horses we will never sell, so gentle and good minded, we couldn't of asked for a nicer horse! We definitely will be buying more from her! ~Alicia Kilgus

Ive bought one horse from them, and he's turning out nicely! Very obliging and smooth when I picked him up. ~Angel Arreola

These horses will be just what they say and maybe even more! Definitely recommend doing business with Lowrance Horses, I know we will again! ~Braden Widener

I will definitely have them on my list to check if I am ever in the market again. If your lookin for a cutter or cutter reject this is where to find one! ~Kora Bower

This young lady has been whispering to horses ever since I've known her. That's been since she was 12... There's not more honest and trustworthy individual when it comes to horses. She helped train both of my girls and helped me both buy and sell horses for over 10 years. You can't go wrong with these folks!! ~Brent Slatter
