What We Do

Arabian Horse Breeding

"Quality over quantity, run it like a business and always think of your herd as building a great athletic team" is a philosophy learned from our mentors. The solid foundation for Uptown Arabians was set by acquiring exceptional broodmares and top breedings.

Raising young stock

Our horses are our passion. We love the Arabian breed because of their speed, refinement, endurance and  strong bones. "I definitely feel a connection with all of our horses having spent many hours working with each and every one of them since foaling."- Krista Henningsgard

Working for the Horse industry

Jon Henningsgard serves on the board of directors for Texas Arabian Breeders Association. He is also a liaison for the state of Texas with the U.S. National Arabian Horse Racing Organization, the Arabian Jockey Club.

Arabian track Racing

Texas is home to three class-one paramutual horse racing tracks for Arabian Horses, and Uptown Ranch also races outside the state of Texas at Delaware Park.

Endurance riding and Show

Uptown Ranch horses are not only fast, they are beautiful Arabians suitable for the show ring and with heart and temperament excellent for endurance riding.
