About Us

Founded in 2005 amid the picturesque landscapes of Tucson, Arizona, Heaven Sent Ranch emerged with a profound dedication to horses. What began with two cherished equines unveiled our enduring passion. From that moment, our journey has been defined by desire, inspiration, and an unwavering love for the horse. At the heart of Heaven Sent Ranch are exceptional equine personalities: Voodoo Chic, Shiners Madam, Shining Miss Lena, A Nic O Chic, and Shiners Bandalero, a striking palomino stallion sired by Shining Spark. Under the guidance of Kevin Stallings Performance Horses, a renowned figure in the equestrian world with a litany of accolades, our training program took flight. Kevin's achievements include titles like NRCHA Open Hackamore National Champion, NRCHA Open Bridle World Champion, and NSHA Open Bridle Champion.

Our breeding ethos remains steadfast: we meticulously assess bloodlines prevalent in reined cow horse, reining, and cutting competitions, constantly striving for excellence with each successive generation. In 2006, the union of Voodoo Chic and Shining Spark heralded the birth of Shiners Voodoo Dr, a name crafted with care by Suzanne, our dedicated breeder. From his formative years grazing the pastures of Tucson to his training under Kevin Stallings, the promise of Shiners Voodoo Dr was palpable. Though parting with him was arduous, we entrusted him to a destiny of greatness, marked by the brand on his right hip. Through the years, Heaven Sent Ranch has been honored to collaborate with accomplished riders like Corey Cushing, whose expertise shone brightly in his partnership with Shiney Dual Rey (Shiners Madam X Dual Rey), securing a Reserve at the AQHA World Show Finals in Senior Working Cow Horse in 2015. The arrival of Ricky Nicolazzi in 2019 has enriched our program immeasurably, his wealth of experience and profound knowledge of bloodlines invigorating our pursuit of excellence in the show arena.

The future of our breeding program is defined by a relentless pursuit of excellence, a commitment to innovation, and a deep-seated reverence for the remarkable equine partners that inspire our journey. As we embark on this exciting odyssey, we remain steadfast in our dedication to producing horses of unparalleled quality, character, and distinction. The future show horses at Heaven Sent Ranch will continue to be characterized by a steadfast commitment to excellence, integrity, and the pursuit of competitive success. Through selective breeding, comprehensive training, strategic partnerships, and unwavering ethical standards, we are poised to achieve new heights of achievement and distinction in the show arena.
