Freeman Ranch Welcomes Award-winning Horse Trainer Dev Branham

By admin | Uncategorized

Dev Branham bio:

Dev has spent his lifetime working with horses, having grown up immersed in his parents’, Don and Terry Branham, training stable.

During his grade school years he actively competed in the USEF “A” and AQHA show circuits on his jumper Dash and many of his parents’ sales horses, working closely along the way with H/J trainer Shane George.

After graduating from TCU in 2004 with a BS in Psychology, Dev began his professional training career in Beaumont, TX working with his parents. During this time Dev soaked in his parents’ 50 combined years of horsemanship knowledge, learning the skills and attention to detail necessary to run a successful show barn.

In addition to his parents’ knowledge, he worked closely with Janet Christie whose vast knowledge and excellent teaching style further developed Dev as a trainer and instructor. When Hurricane Rita came and ousted him from Beaumont, Dev relocated in Brenham, working out of the beautiful Southwind Farms. While at Southwind Dev continued to develop horses and riders competing on the local Houston and THJA “A” show circuits. Also during his tenure at Southwind he actively participated in the Independence Foxhounds Hunt, riding young hunt horses and sometimes leading second field. In May of 2007 Dev opened Devereaux Sporthorses in Tomball in order to focus more on developing a competitive string of “A” show horses and riders.

The last few years have proved very successful for DSH, with multiple USEF “A” and “AA” rated championships, high Medal/Maclay placings, GHHJA Year End Champions, USEF Jumper classic wins, and an AQHYA World Show champion in Jumping.  Dev is very excited about the new relationship with Freeman Ranch and the opportunity to expand DSH’s success into the Katy equine market through this beautiful and superbly run facility.
