Double E Ranch, formerly known as Erickson's Arabians and Miniatures, was formed in October, 2013 when Richard Erickson and Jacob Elliott were wed in Sacramento.
We are located in Galt about 30 mins. south of Sacramento. Double E Ranch consists of about thirty miniature horses of varying colors, bloodlines, and personalities. Our breeding program includes the traditional AMHA horse as well as Shetland blends and pony lines in AMHR and ASPC. We have enjoyed tremendous success in the show ring and in our breeding, as we strive for the best possible conformation and movement in our horses.
Before we met, Richard was preparing to retire from the business. That never came to pass, as Jacob bought his first horse, a beautiful chestnut colt, aptly named Pistol for his explosive personality. After placing him into training, Jacob got the bug and began showing at halter and won several competitions with him and another of our stallions, Mac who has become one of the most famous miniature horses in the industry, especially with our friends the Paul and Ailene Tarap who bought him and have taken him to new heights! From that point, Jacob became addicted and has enjoyed much success showing both in halter and performance both with AMHA and AMHR.
Presently at Double E, we are focusing on breeding our triple registered driving stallion, Mountain Meadows Simply Sensational whom we co-own with Casey and Kelly Campbell. Following an incredible debut as three-year old during which he was multi-national champion in pleasure driving as well as reserve GRAND stallion, "Sensa" returned to the ring in 2021 in style winning grands in pleasure driving "34-36," as well as his stakes class. After standing at stud at Mountain Meadows, the place of his birth, Sensa will go to the Bondes of South Dakota for the 2023 breeding season.
In 2020, we purchased the above-featured stallion, At Last Remington, bred by Teri Silva of At Lasts Surastars LIl Rebel fame. "Remi" tore it up at AMHR Nationals going undefeated in Roadster and Pleasure Driving 36 - 38" with three different exhibitors for a total of seven National Championships. He has one filly on the ground with four more expected later this year. We are so grateful to co-own these two amazing stallions with Casey and Kelly Campbell! Thanks to Cindy McPike and Cameron Nelson for allowing us to purchase this super-sweet and talented boy!
Finally, 2022 has led to some unexpected and surprising results! Although we were not planning to attend AMHA worlds, we opted to follow up our successful national show by attending and showing four double E bred studs. Each came away with at least one world championship. Jacob enjoyed the surprise of his life by winning back to back world championships, one with Rebbie in Country Pleasure Driving, and the other with Monday (Sensa "Mini Me") in a large halter class - so exciting! Speaking of Monday, He will become a Danish citizen in 2023 as he goes to his new home at Highlight Miniatures with our good friends Gitten and Katja Bager.
