Where there is a will, there is a way.

When I started barrel racing, I had no arena, no cowboy boots, no barrel racing saddle and no entry fee money. But I hunted up three old trash cans and put them on a little spot of ground in my grandmother's meadow. Grandma's hay crop was not too good that year, but my barrel racing sure improved!

Being a goal setter is a must for every barrel racer. You've got to WANT the win! You have to set the goal, want it and then go for it.

Keep These Simple Principles In Mind So You Will Enjoy Your Barrel Racing

  1. Be prepared. Do your homework and then let your training work for you.

  1. Back off when things are not going as you have planned. This will allow you to gain the proper perspective needed to find the solution to your problems.

  1. Convert mistakes into learning opportunities.

  1. Haul with people who enjoy the sport and make it enjoyable for you.

We always have something exciting going on at the Ranch: Barrel Racing or Calf Roping Clinics, the famous World Champion Jr. Barrel Race or our fun filled Reunion Round-Up for former students.

We have a large selection of quality horses, saddles and equipment for sale year-round.

Make plans to attend one of our clinics or week long schools.

Make new friends and benefit from the experience we've gained through years of competition.

             Best Wishes & God Bless

Please Note: GPS frequently takes our guests to the wrong place.

If you want to use your GPS-type in Marshall Lakeside Country Club, Marshall, TX

We are exactly 3 miles past it on HWY 43N. The ranch will be on the Left.

Or Use the Following Directions to the Ranch:

From Dallas or Shreveport, LA take I-20 to the HWY 59 exit in Marshall, TX. Go North on Hwy 59 approximately 4 miles. You will pass HWY 43S continuing on to cross over HWY 80. At the very next light (Lowe’s on the corner) you will turn onto HWY 43 N-Karnack/Caddo Lake. You will drive approximately 6 miles out to Josey Ranch(passing the Marshall Lakeside Country Club). The ranch entrance will be on your left with white pipe fence and signage as you come out of a right curve.

If traveling in on HWY 59 from the south use the same directions as above or if coming from the North on HWY 59-the HWY 43 N/Lowe’s traffic light will be right after you pass Wal-mart (at the 2nd light).
