Cutting Horses was first established in in the
small east coast town of Turkey, North Carolina.
The original farm was home to the Matthews
family for three generations, and is where the
family-owned pork and poultry business
originated decades ago.
Matthews is very connected to his east coast
roots in North Carolina, and feels strongly that
the farm is an ideal location for the Matthews
broodmares and young stock to reside and thrive.
It is where the offspring reside until just
before their 2-year-old year, when they are sent
to the Matthews cutting horses location in
Weatherford, TX, where Jeffrey and Sheri
Matthews reside today.
In Weatherford, the 2-year-olds are started in
the Matthews’ program for 60 – 120 days, and
then are placed with some of the finest trainers
in the performance horse industry today.
Subsequently, in the most elite competitive
environment, Matthews cutting horses has become
a name synonymous with superior performance
horse bloodlines. behind the fine horses bred
and owned by the Matthews ranch is a breeding
program of uncompromising standards and
steadfast values. at its core is the Matthews’
vision for creating an operation built on
extraordinary bloodlines, exceptional
performance and the highest degree of structural
Matthew’s standards for superb quality have been
historically influenced by some of the most
renowned Reinsmen of the west coast…and the
impression their training techniques left on
Jeffrey Matthews years ago. in particular, his
experience with legendary horsemen and mentors
instilled in him an understanding of the
distinct need for structural soundness in the
performance horse. as a result, Matthews' horses
today possess world-class pedigrees along with
the physical components to sustain soundness in
today's intense competition.
