About Masterson Farms

The farm began its focus upon breeding with its acquisition of Zippos Sheik in 1993 following a decade of involvement in showing, boarding, and training western pleasure horses. In 2006, great progress was made toward achieving its goals when RL Best Of Sudden was purchased. As well, the farm’s operations moved in 2007 to its new facilities in Somerville, Tennessee.
