Celebrating over 97 years in Business......

The TC Ranch is an old family ranch established in 1915, owned and operated by the Carter family. We are located in East Texas 20 miles North West of Clevelend and 75 miles North of Houston.

The TC Ranch breeds horses for Disposition, Conformation, and Future Champions in Quarter Horses, Paint Horses, and Thoroughbred mixes in both breeds. We are raising Great horses from Great bloodlines and offering Horses For Sale.

We have 600 acres to explore that backs up to the National Forest!

On March 16th 2012, Owner and beloved husband, Tom Carter went to be with the Lord he served for 78 years. It is our hope to continue in the traditions of Tom Carter's legacy on the TC Ranch.

However at this time we have suspended all activities with the exception of Trail Rides. We will continue to offer trail rides on Saturdays & Sundays. Depending on the number of riders coming out we have 1 to 4 trail guides to accommodate those guests.

Go to our Trail Ride page for more information!
