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 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 who has become one of the most famous miniature horses in the industry, especially with our friends the Paul and Ailene Tarap who bought him and have taken him to new heights! 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 2016 with Casey Campbell and in 2018 with Cassidy Blanton at the whip. With Casey returning to the whip, Sensa created a sensation when he returned to the ring in 2021 and went undefeated in Pleasure Driving at the AMHR National show.
In 2020, we purchased the above-featured stallion, At Last Remington, bred by Teri Silva of At Lasts Surastars LIl Rebel fame. "Remi" tore it up at AMHR Nationals going undefeated in Roadster and Pleasure Driving 36 - 38" with three different exhibitors for a total of seven National Championships. He has one filly on the ground with four more expected later this year. We are so grateful to co-own these two amazing stallions with Casey and Kelly Campbell! Thanks to Cindy McPike and Cameron Nelson for allowing us to purchase this super-sweet and talented boy!
