Founded in 2000, the Sleepy P Ranch fulfills a lifelong dream of BG and Suzanne Porter to add horses to their lives. 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 have always shared a passion for horses. Their first ranch property got their sons Wilton & Lucas hooked through trail rides and roping lessons. A subsequent property near Dallas, Texas allowed horses to be a part of their day to day life while the boys attended school and BG worked in Dallas. From ponies to children’s jumpers, the Porter family focused on the Texas and Colorado circuits. In 2007 they made their first trip east where Wilton won the Children’s Jumper Final in Harrisburg and was WEF Circuit Champion in Florida. After several seasons commuting, the Porters moved the Sleepy P Ranch to Wellington. In 2018, they established a European base by purchasing the neighboring property to Jeroen Dubbeldam’s Stal de Sjiem. The team now is based in Wellington in the fall and winter and Weerselo in the spring and summer. Suzanne & BG continue to love the equestrian life – especially the thrill of watching their sons compete. Suzanne now serves as a Director of the United States Equestrian Team and is happy to be giving back to a sport that has brought such joy to their family’s world.
