THE RANCH

‘As my partner Caroline took me to Amerika 10 years ago, I fell in love with Texas, says owner Pim. Together we like the western lifestyle a lot along with the Texan people and climate. Our life motto is 'Living the dream'.  Therefor we bought a piece of property in 2007 and built our own ranch. At the Pica Ranch we are now living our dream in Texas. We are hoping to meet everybody who would like to get a taste of this life style at our ranch.'

  • MEET THE STAFF PIM

    Pim de Lange: In 2006 I traded in my motorcycle for an Quarter horse named Dudes Lucky Award (aka Gray). The love for Quarters came thru my wife Caroline. By going to shows and training sessions with her I fell head over heels for this very special breed. I was especially attracted by the trail class and together with my horse Gray I even became Dutch Champion in that class in 2010. As we were on vacation in Texas in 2007 I made my mind up. This is where I want to grow old with my wife, our horses and dogs. Originally by profession I am a financial controller but now I have turned into a real ranch owner. It is my dream to share this life with as many people as possible. The great temperature, the totally beautiful surroundings, the ton of things to go visit and the totally relaxed life style are absolutely worth to experience yourself!

  • MEET THE STAFF CAROLINE

    Caroline Schoneveld: for almost 28 years I worked as trainer on the job/coördinator implementations  Gids and Autoline with VW/Audi dealers and importer Pon. When Pim asked me to start a “new” life with him in Texas I did not hesitate and said yes immediately. Love for the great Quarter horses I already had. Showing them for years with the western organizations in Pleasure and Halter classes gave my horses and me 3 Dutch National Titles and one Belgium National Title. As of 2012 a new project at work ate up all of my time so unfortunately there was no time left for showing. However the love for Texas was also already given to me by my dad. As a teenager he took me with him to San Antonio Texas as he needed to work for a company there. I would love to show everybody the awesome scenery by showing guests car- and motorcycle tours thru the Texas Hill Country. Also I would love to take guests on  typical Texan activities. Come and experience it all yourself!

  • MEET THE STAFF BOBBY

    Bobby Garner: one of the last old fashion cowboys. ‘Raised as a cowboy I worked with cattle and horses as of a young boy. I specialized in Team Roping and as a Header I became Reserve World Champion Team Roping. On the ranch I take care of the animals and I control the weeds. Would you like to learn how to rope? I would certainly like to teach you the basics of roping!’

  • MEET THE DONKEYS

    Bonny, Clyde and Smokey (aka Junior): these three donkeys are Bobby’s and live on the Pica Ranch. Clyde is the oldest four footer on the Pica Ranch. He is definitely a lot older then 20,  is very sweet and gray of color. Clyde took care of a descendant with Bonny the dark brown mare. Their son is called Smokey. All together they now proudly walk around on the ranch and they are protecting all the horses. Donkeys can be  pretty important for a group of horses. They make sure it is difficult for a mountain lion or bobcat to hunt any of the horses. They make a loud alarming noise when a big cat is around and they will kick the light out of the eyes of the cat if it decides to attack. Smokey is slowly getting used to being padded. He loves to play with his dad and sometimes they get pretty rough with each other but it sure is fun to watch them.
