Welcome to our Wyoming registered Foundation Quarter Horse ranch. Powder River Horses is located in the Powder River Breaks of Arvada Wyoming near the Powder River. The ranch is owned and operated by Brett Sorenson. The Powder River country has always been known for its good, stout ranch horses and cattle. The area has a rich history of cattle ranching. Big, athletic, heavy boned horses with a lot of speed and endurance where needed for the open range roping and the daily cattle work in the early years. These horses covered a lot of country and needed a lot of bottom to them. Today not much has changed we still like a horse who is well built, quick, athletic, heavy muscled, good conformation bone and feet. The temperament should be friendly, gentle, big hearted and willing to work. These are the attributes we look and breed for. Our Blue Valentine and Joe Hancock horses are raised in herds on native range grasses. They are allowed to develop and mature naturally, growing to their potential and exhibiting the hardiness and natural cow sense legendary to the Joe Hancock and Blue Valentine bloodlines.

We believe in our bloodlines and value the strength of our broodmares. Many of the Triangle lady and Burnett mares crowd our pedigrees as they are the lines who produced Buck Hancock, Belle Burnett, Anne Joe, Roan Lady, Baldy Joe and Pepper Hancock.
Our mares have the genetic makeup to produce champions, just read their pedigrees. Physically, they are a powerful set of mares that pass these characteristics on to their foals.
We have outstanding young stallion

Capture a piece of American Quarter Horse History.
of our Hancock breeding program is founded on 2 stallions that not only
put size and cow in their colts and fillies, but also color them in
beautiful shades of blue roan and grulla roan.
Powder River Valentine is a big stout blue roan Hancock stallion. Who is Blue Valentine and Hancocks Blue Boy breeding and is double bred Leo Hancock Hayes. He is a true blue roan. He faithfully reproduces his blue roan color on his blue roan sons and daughters. Powder River Valentine is bred to a herd of true blue roan mares that are also Blue Valentine breeding. These Blue roan mares produce a very high percentage of blue roan foals of excellent quality. Their size and gentle dispositions set them apart. The offspring of this stallion are built for ranch work and roping, yet fast enough for the rodeo arena.
JJ Crowheart Grullo is a chunky built athlete who loves to chase cows. He is a silvery grullo roan Hancock stallion. His breeding is Buck Hancock, Plenty Try and Blue Bonnet. This stallion produces quiet minded, quick and cowy offspring who have the beautiful grullo roan or blue roan coloration. We breed him to some of our blue roan, Blue Valentine mares. He never fails to produce us some very nice foals. We have retained some of his daughters and look forward to crossing them with our silver dapple stallion that is a Hancock and Leo cross stallion.
Performance horses that have athletic ability. Joe Hancock offspring have found their way into the rodeos arenas, calf, team & break away roping. They are superior pick up horses. Many have become successful at barrel racing, cutting, showing, reining, racing and team penning. Many of the greatest ranch and arena horses have had the bloodline of Blue Valentine in them who was a grandson of Joe Hancock. Long known for rugged durability the Joe Hancock bred horses are the choice of horseman.
