At Sierra Gold® we stand by our motto of “it’s about the horse” and we don’t cut corners when it comes to quality. Your horses are important to you like our horses are important to us. You want to feed the best that you can afford and we make the best affordable.
With so many supplements to choose from how can a horse owner choose the right one for their horse? It’s really pretty easy. We have taken the time to break down each of the major brands as to what is in one ounce according to the manufacturer’s guaranteed analysis. Then we placed them side by side with the comparable Sierra Gold® product so that you can see for yourself which is best. Many people are amazed at the difference and end up buying Sierra Gold® over what they were feeding. Contact Dan H. at Sierra Gold for your free product comparison and see for yourself!
We have seen great results in all of our horses with these fantastic products!

Bryan was raised on his family's ranch near Salinas, California. In his teen years he became friends with neighbor Bill Dorrance. He spent all the time he could with Bill, working with horses and braiding rawhide.

After college he worked with Bill steadily, starting and riding colts on Bill's ranch. During this time Bryan met Bill's friend Ray Hunt and Bill's brother Tom Dorrance. He had many opportunities since those years to work for and with these gifted men. They have greatly influenced and helped him learn what he is able to accomplish with a horse and ultimately with parts of his life.

Bryan has spent 20 years cowboying and riding colts on some of the biggest ranches in Nevada and California. Thirteen of those years were spent as cowboss in charge of cattle, horses and the cowboy crew. He has had valuable experience working with wild horses in Nevada, as well as conducting demonstrations on wild horse handling across the country. He has a video titled Wild Horse Handling and was featured in Western Horseman. See the February '96 issue, "Taking the Wild out of Mustangs" by Jim Overstreet.

Bryan and his wife Patty have been married for 27 years and are blessed with three children, Jim, Kate and Luke. They all make their living working with horses.

Since 1992, Bryan calls Alturas, California home. Alturas is located in the northeastern part of the state. He holds clinics at his home for part of the year and travels the United States and Canada the rest of the year helping people and their horses through his colt starting, horsemanship and cow working clinics.

Bryan is eager to share what he has learned. He believes that he is constantly learning and considers himself to be a continual student of horsemanship.

Dan has been riding with and learning from Bryan 2-4 times per year since 2017 and is honored to consider him a friend.

As a former Nevada 4-H member, Kathy has had a long relationship with the Nevada 4-H horse program. Now as professional equestrians, Dan and Kathy are proud to support the next generation of horsemen in Nevada! We have provided guidance for the 4-H Wild Horse Training Program that partners with the BLM to get yearling mustangs out of holding and gentled by committed 4-H participants. 
These participants demonstrated the intent of the 4-H Pledge – pledging their heads, hearts and hands – to raise these magnificent animals. 
We hope to grow this relationship even further in the coming years and provide even more learning opportunities to youth equestrians in Nevada!
