Founded by Finis Welch in 1987, and managed by Jay Dickson since 1992, Center Ranch is located near Centerville - among the piney woods and rolling hills of East Central Texas.
Over the past twenty-five years, Center Ranch has grown from a 130 acre property to a 10,600 acre thriving hay operation, cattle business, training facility, and equine veterinary center. The Ranch has balanced a combination of traditional Texas cattle ranching with some of the most technologically advanced agricultural services available to make it a leader in the ranching industry.
Center Ranch’s experience, selective breeding, and equine care have allowed them to produce and sell top quality cutting and ranch horses to their clients. NCHA Hall of Famer, Ronnie Rice manages the 2 and 3 year-old training program giving each of the started cutting prospects and ranch horses, as well as the riders who ride them, a distinct advantage in the cutting arena and on the ranch.
