In 2019, KING RANCH enhanced its rich legacy by winning the American Quarter Horse Association’s Best Remuda Award. “King Ranch is known around the world as an icon of ranching,” said AQHA Director of Ranching Kim Lindsey. “We are proud to present the Best Remuda Award to this storied ranch in recognition of its many achievements and the great ranch horses it is producing.” Vice President Dave Delaney said King Ranch’s goal is “producing the best horses for our 35 cowboys to ride every day in their ranch duties.” King Ranch was founded in 1853 by Captain Richard King, who bred up his stallions and mares as carefully as he did his cattle. The foundation sire of the ranch’s Quarter Horse program, Old Sorrel, was foaled in 1915. Today, every horse on King Ranch is descended from that chestnut stallion. Captain King’s grandson Bob Kleberg considered Old Sorrel to be the best cow horse he had ever ridden.
