The Spiller Ranch is located south of the Steamboat Mountains between Abilene and San Angelo, where the Big Country region of West Texas unfolds into the Concho Valley. The landscape is a mosaic of rolling hills and rocky breaks, rich farmland and native prairie grass pastures, mesquite and live oak, prickly pear and yucca. It is here, that good horses are made.

A look at Spiller Ranch pedigrees will reveal why our horses have good bone, excellent feet, substance, ability, speed, cow, and traffice-stopping good looks. These enduring qualities have sustained the popularity of Hancock & Driftwood horses for eight decades. In today's world of specialization, thousands of horses are bred each year with hopes of winning a single event, be it racing's All-American Futurity, cutting's NCHA Futurity, reining's NRHA Championship, NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, or an AQHA World Championship. The Spiller Ranch horse program holds true to the original vision of the all-around performance horse and just might provide your next Versatility Ranch Horse Champion or Supreme Stock Horse Champion. That is the kind of horse we strive to produce.
