Here at Tate Farms….

We have a variety of events that take place on our beautiful 600 acre ranch.

Our goal is to emphasize the importance of educated horsemanship. To do so, we generally host only a few clinics that we reserve especially for our boarders, and a select group of outside people. We have cattle working clinics,  colt starting clinics, and we continue to host a number of world renowned trainers such as Buster & Sheryl McLaury, who emphasize on the Ray Hunt Method.

Also, each spring season, we conduct our Annual Spring Roundup in which we bring up all of our cattle to sort and doctor them. Check out our album from 2016!


Trail Riding

We host a variety of trail rides. It is easy to relax and unwind with friends on the luscious pastures of Tate Farms. Our boarders frequently schedule group trail rides, picnics, and we occasionally have sponsored trail rides like our Susan G Komen Ride for the Cure hosted in 2014.



Aside from the horse business, we also have a unique and charming event center referred to as Summerfield at Tate Farms.

Nestled in horse and cattle country, Summerfield at Tate Farms offers a charming venue for your wedding or special event. Though it is only 30 minutes east of downtown Dallas, this 3rd generation Rockwall ranch allows guests to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Over the more than 600 acres you find endless photo opportunities. Gather in the 3,400 square foot barn built by hand by the Tate family with repurposed wood and metal and topped with our signature piece, a vintage wagon wheel chandelier. The west side of the barn opens up to a beautiful wooden deck perfectly placed to watch the magnificent Texas sunset.
