About Us
Who We Are:
Arrow Maker Ranch is fairly new to horse breeding, having set up shop around 2011. My husband and I are both city slickers, gone a little country. We have a young son that makes us laugh every day and we look forward to teaching him the responsibilities that only a farm can provide. While we would love to do this full time, we do both have day jobs that let us live comfortably enough to put food on the table and beer in the fridge. We are both Army veterans of 10+ years and the Army helped shape who we both are today (and helped us meet); and we are both very grateful for all of the blessings and opportunities that we have been provided.
Our last name is Fletcher which is Scottish in heritage. The craft of inserting feathers on the tail end of arrows was known as "fletching." When arrows were the main form of weapon for hunting and defense, there were craftsman whose entire trade was fletching arrows, i.e. a Fletcher or Arrow Maker.
We currently breed Amercian Quarter Horses based on our breeding philosophy with the ultimate goal being a versatile, well minded and well conformed riding horse. We strive for quality of mind and willingness to learn, followed by physical ability. The foundation of our breeding program is AQHA Morgan Dun N Stone, much better known as Zeus.
While I did grow up in the city, I started riding hunter/jumpers when I was 7 years old. They were typically quarter horses or Appendix and my trainer used to say that quarter horses were the only ones with any brains. I rode solidly for about 10 years, then off and on as a working student while in college. I dabbled in other breeds and found out that I agreed with my old trainer, quarter horses really were the only ones with any brains. As I got older, I was also able to appreciate the huge versatility that quarter horses offered, as well as, the actual functional role they played in American history.

Where We Are:
Arrow Maker Ranch recently re-located from a 2 acre parcel in Paso Robles to 50 acres in Bradley, CA. on the Central Coast of California, about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and about 30 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Paso Robles is the home of the California Mid-State Fair, as well as an up and coming wine industry. Despite the quick rise to wine fame, Paso Robles is a great example of agriculture meets haute couture, as it has maintained a bit of its country origins.

We are conventiently located near Hwy 101, Hwy 46, and only a short ride to Interstate 5. See the Contact Us page for a map to our area (Google doesn't get it quite right).
