At M&R Ranch all horses were born here at the stables with foal imprinting and raised in a loving environment so children and adults alike would feel comfortable and safe around them. The horses were trained at a young age to be “bombproof” and to endure all situations that may arise. All horses have their own unique characters and can really be enjoyed fully when seen at the ranch. With this philosophy in mind, Maria Pruden, the owner of M&R Ranch who has 40 years experience in the horse industry wanted to incorporate the same theory of teaching children and adults horseback riding lessons, not only the basics of riding English and Western but also the whole equestrian picture of ground work, the anatomy of the horse, grooming, how to saddle a horse English and Western, the upkeep of a horse, barn management, how to care for a horse, safety precautions of riding and being around a horse, helmets, and chest protectors. Memberships include the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), the American Paint Horse Association (AQHA), the Georgia Quarter Horse Association, and the Georgia Hunter Circuit.

M & R Ranch is the 4-H Barn for Bryan County, Georgia. 



M & R Ranch will provide a comprehensive riding program offering an extensive range of group and private lesson options as well as growth opportunities in the areas of horsemanship, competition, and equestrian discipline that will create an environment in which all participants are welcome to visit.
