About Us

Phillips Ranch LLC  was established in 2013 by John and Mary Phillips.

The Phillips are avid team ropers enjoying their hobby while working full time running their stained glass business. After retiring in Jan 2022 they wanted to further their involvement in the team roping industry. Sid Sporer a close family friend suggested and then facilitated them getting involved in the fast growing rope horse futurities. John and Mary always appreciated quality horses and decided to get involved.

As successful business owners the Phillips knew the importance of creating alliances with experts in the field. After some research John and Mary reached out to the most talented horsemen and roper they knew to build the program. Cesar de la Cruz is not only are accomplished horseman, he also shares the same vision and values as the Phillips.
