Comanche Oar Lock Ranch

This is a premier equine training property but also offers great opportunities for the outdoorsman, farmer and rancher as well.

The Shoemaker/Eddleman family has a long history of producing quality equine livestock. From humble beginnings almost one hundred years ago, Warren Shoemaker along with his grandson, Dan Eddleman, established a well-known and respected blood line of horses.  Today, Comanche Oar Lock Ranch serves as a training facility for the Shoemaker breed under the watchful eyes of the Eddleman family.

This 312 acre ranch is conveniently located 1.5 hours from Ft. Worth, 1.5 hours from Abilene and 30 minutes to Stephenville.

Comanche Oar Lock Ranch includes the following:

An inviting wrap-around porch with original beaded ceiling overlooks the stone patio leading to the custom unground pool with waterfall. The original brick and stone exterior is complimented by the newly installed metal roof.

The remaining barn area contains two large stalls and 8 small stalls divided by a concrete alley. Each stall has automatic watering and spray systems.
