Running U Livestock, Inc, is a second generation, family owned and operated working horse and cattle ranch, located in beautiful western Utah. Running U Livestock was founded by Terry & Elaine George, and is now being operated by their daughter and son-in-law, Shamus & Jolyn Haws. Shamus & Jolyn hope to one day pass the business on to their four daughters and many more generations to come.
The Running U brand itself has been in the family for more than 150 years. However, Shamus has been running the day-to-day operations on the ranch for the past 20 years, as well as conducting both public and private Colt Starting and Horsemanship clinics throughout the country. Shamus is an AQHA Professional Horseman & has also been named as the "Best Horse Trainer in Utah" in 2011 & 2012 after winning the Utah's Horse Trainers Challenge. Shamus was chosen as a 2015 Road to the Horse Wild Card & is also a Horsemens Re-Union invitee.
Running U is always striving to produce top bred Quarter Horses with outstanding conformation, disposition, and athletic ability to succeed as both ranch and performance horses in all aspects of the equine industry. Their horses are raised on 30,000+ acres on the Oquirrh Mountain range. Running U Livestock is one of the largest & most reputable Quarter Horse breeders in the western United States, as well as an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder. They have been featured in several nationally recognized publications because of the values and honesty they are known for.
