Due West Ranch  |  A First-Class Equine Facility

Bill Basler and Mary Sharp

Co-Owners of Due West Ranch

Due West Ranch was founded in 2002 by Bill Basler on 80 acres in western Wyandotte County, Kansas. His goal was to develop a family-friendly, multi-discipline boarding facility. Since this welcoming atmosphere drew boarders from all over the Kansas City metropolitan area, the ranch continued to grow and necessitated the addition of barns and larger arenas.
Mary Sharp brought her lesson program and talented herd to Due West Ranch in May of 2011. She built on her program with the addition of camps and the Not Summer Horse Show Series.
Soon after, Bill and Mary decided to merge their businesses and became partners. With their combined efforts and passion for their Due West family, the ranch became well-known for excellence in horse care, well-rounded rider education, and multi-discipline events, all while implementing the highest safety standards for horse and rider.
In June of 2015, Due West Ranch relocated two miles down the road to a beautiful 40-acre property. It was love at first sight and Bill and Mary knew this would be the best place to focus on their dream - operating the premier equine education center in the Midwest. They want to provide horse owners and riders with positive, safe equine activities in multiple disciplines. 
The Building of a Barn
We invite you to scroll through the gallery below to see how far we've come. It was a long journey but, with the help of our family and friends, we made it!
Our gratitude runs deep.
Many months and countless man hours later, our beautiful new barn is complete.
