Home of Icelandic Horses, Hanging Valley Ranch is a 55 acre ranch just 9 miles from Carbondale. We raise and sell Icelandic Horses using our 4 First Prize Mares at our ranch and breeding them with First Prize Stallions from around the U.S. Our mission, with the help of our ranch manager, Oak Applegate and Trainer, Florie Miller, is to strive to breed the best possible foals. So far we have been very successful in this mission, as 4 out of the top 5 young Icelandic horses bred in the U.S. for the last four years have come from our ranch.
We believe the Icelandic Horse is the "Golden Retriever" of horses because of their loyalty, steadfastness, gentle disposition, willingness to please and sturdiness. They are purebred, as no other horse has been allowed on Iceland's shore for over 1000 years. They are use to working in a harsh and unforgiving environment and do not spook easily. They are wonderful for both children and adults.
