Dove Creek Ranch

Dove Creek Ranch is a place teeming with animals both domestic and wild – from horses and barnyard animals to coyotes and red-tailed hawks, all inhabitants enjoy the harmony of the natural world in the beautiful Tierra Blanca Canyon.

Leaving the city behind, you find yourself in a wonderfully relaxing and healing oasis on the High Plains; nestled in an awe-inspiring ancient canyon system, just south of Amarillo, TX and 20 miles west of the 2nd largest canyon in America, Palo Duro Canyon, lies a beautiful place called Dove Creek Ranch and Equine Rescue.

Dove Creek Ranch is family owned and operated ranch that has been treasured by the Higgins family since 1993, as well as home to Dove Creek Equine Rescue, a non-profit (501c3). Laurie Higgins-Kerley remarried in 2015, and she and her husband Greg are the stewards of this healing place. Both appreciate the beauty of our Texas Panhandle and are committed to rehabilitating, retraining, and rehoming animals and humans while taking conscientious care of the land.

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
John Muir

“Rode there for the first time and absolutely LOVED it! It has great hills if you want to work on hills and tons of flat land if you want to just move out. Either way, it was beautiful out there. Seeing the rescued ‘animals’ (horses, donkeys, llamas, buffalo, goats, and sheep) grazing on that much land made my heart happy. Please support this wonderful organization that saves our equine friends and if you want somewhere to ride you MUST visit this place!”
