The Sleepy P Ranch is the sponsor of US riders Wilton & Lucas Porter, Todd Minikus and Aaron Vale. From Suzanne’s teenage years as an American, living in England, racing around on pony jumpers – to BG’s early years on ranch horses and polo ponies, they share a passion for horses. Their first ranch property got their sons Wilton & Lucas hooked through trail rides and roping lessons. In 2006, the Porters launched an equestrian enterprise to include horse farms, horse investments and a boarding and training business. The first commercial property was located near Dallas, Texas. In 2008 they made their first trip east where Wilton won the Children’s Jumper Final in Harrisburg and was WEF Circuit Champion in Florida. Sleepy P Ranch Texas became the development base for their horses and riders and the home of the SMU Equestrian team until the sale in 2015. In 2012, the enterprise expanded to Wellington, Florida with the purchase of a farm in the exclusive Mallet Hill. In 2018, they established a European base by purchasing the neighboring property to Jeroen Dubbeldam’s Stal de Sjiem. The business is now based in Wellington in the fall and winter and Weerselo in the spring and summer. Sleepy P with its iconic brand of a P on its back “sleeping” has developed a reputation for show jumping horses. In addition to sponsoring Wilton & Lucas, Sleepy P owns shares of Quality Girl (the winningest US grand prix jumper in 2014) ridden by Todd Minikus, and Major (over $100,000 in grand prix prix money to date in 2018) ridden by Aaron Vale. Suzanne is a past director of the Washington International Horse Show and now serves as a Director of the United States Equestrian Team.
