About Us

Dick and Nan WaldenRancho Soñado is home to award winning Arabian and Half-Arabian horses. At both of its facilities in Amado, Arizona and Santa Ynez, California, Rancho Soñado has large arenas and quality boarding facilities. Training, lessons and other horse care services are also available.


Dick and Nan Walden own Rancho Soñado and they have won a number of championship titles. They are also the owners of the Green Valley Pecan Company, a successful pecan farm and processing operation in Sahuarita, Arizona.


The ethic they employ in their family farm carries through to their Arabian lifestyle. No one cares more than Nan and Dick about the care and well being of the horses, the staff and all the wild and domestic critters on their ranch.






"You can never rely on a horse that is educated by fear. There will always be something that he fears more than you. But, when he trusts you, he will ask you, what to do when he is afraid."

~ Antoine de Pluvinel
16th century equerry to King of France
