Scott and Kerry Bradac have been breeding quarter horses since 1995. Scott’s dad, Henry (H.R) Bradac had a love for horses and brought one of the first AQHA Registered Quarter Horses to the state of ND! In 2012, they relocated their horse breeding program to an 80-acre facility in the heart of Ocala’s horse country. The ranch boasts three barns with a total of 45 stalls, pastures and turnout and a 150-foot by 200-foot outdoor pen.
“In 1995, Scott and I began raising pleasure bred horses. The horses from our program have done well on both a National and Regional Level, with a Congress Champion, multiple Congress Top Ten Champions, a Top Five AQHA World Show Champion, an NSBA World Champion, a Reserve Tom Powers Champion, a Reichert Celebration Champion, several Canadian National Champions, an ABRA World Champion, an IBHA World Champion and a PHBA Reserve World Champion, along with numerous futurity champions, AQHA point earners and Regional Championship Show Champions! We are excited to continue raising quality horses in Ocala, what is dubbed the Horse Capital of The World!”
Along with the move, Bradac Ranch South has made some changes! In addition to Congress Champion, HOT DIGGITY JOE, they have acquired Congress Top Ten WP Champion, OPEN FOR SUGGESTION!
Scott and Kerry Bradac are very excited that Mitch, Jennifer and Chase Leckey are moving back to Ocala and are looking forward to what the future holds.
If you are ever in the area, we would love to have you stop by our farm!
Bradac Ranch South is excited to be welcoming The Leckey Family back home to Ocala!
AQHA and NSBA trainers Mitch and Jennifer Leckey will be relocating their Leckey Quarter Horses training operation to Ocala, Florida, where they will also manage the Bradac Ranch South.
“We are all excited about entering this new chapter,” says Kerry Bradac, who made the announcement today.
Mitch and Jennifer Leckey started training in Ocala and worked for Tim and Lou Petty from 1998 to 2002, when they moved to Richmond, Indiana. Over the past 17 years they have trained and coached multiple AQHA and NSBA World Champions, Quarter Horse Congress Champions and major futurity winners.
Mitch, Jennifer and their son, Chase, will move from their current Richmond, Indiana facility to Ocala at the conclusion of the 2015 Quarter Horse Congress. In their new role they will train Bradac-bred foals as well as maintain their own training operation.
