Double E Ranch, formerly known as Erickson's Arabians and Miniatures, was formed in October, 2013 when Richard Erickson and Jacob Elliott were wed in Sacramento.
We are located in Galt about 30 mins. south of Sacramento. Double E Ranch consists of about thirty-five miniature horses of varying colors, bloodlines, and personalities. Our breeding program includes the traditional AMHA horse as well as Shetland blends and pony lines in AMHR and ASPC. We have enjoyed tremendous success in the show ring and in our breeding, as we strive for the best possible conformation and movement in our horses.
Before we met, Richard was preparing to retire from the business. That never came to pass, as Jacob bought his first horse, a beautiful chestnut colt, aptly named Pistol for his explosive personality.
After placing him into training, Jacob got the bug and began showing at halter and won several competitions with him and another of our stallions, Mac. From that point, Jacob became addicted and has enjoyed much success showing both in halter and performance both with AMHA and AMHR.
Presently at Double E, we are focusing on breeding our triple registered driving stallion, Mountain Meadows Simply Sensational following a highly a successful trip to the show ring in 2018 with Cassidy Blanton at the whip. We have several foals for sale from our 2016 and 2017 crop, plus some top quality broodmares. Four of Sensa's foals have hit the ground in 2018. The first is a gorgeous filly out of a beautifully moving palomino mare who already rocked it in the show ring in 2019. The second is a flashy bay filly owned by our friend Colette. The third is a solid bay colt with a beautiful head that's owned by Regina Arons. The fourth is a tiny, silver bay colt that is now in Belgium living with our Goddaughter, Rayna!
At this time, all of Sensa's 2019 foals have hit the ground. We have two colts, an two fillies of our own. One of the colts who looks like a miniature Sensa and will remain with us as part of our future breeding program. The other is an exquisite sorrel colt who has sold to our friends, John and Charmay Zucker of Reno! The other filly our of the drop dead gorgeous, Grahams Sunswept Destiny, is now owned by Aimee Davis. We are expecting three more Sensa foals in 2020!
