Producing premier Cutting and Cowhorses.

Hall Performance Horses/Nine K Land and Cattle is a diversified performance horse and cattle operation located in the southern black hills of South Dakota. We specialize in reined cowhorses, cutters, reiners, ranch horses and colts.  We also run over 120 head of Black Angus cattle, instruct clinics at the ranch and around the world, host guests at our Cowhorse Camp and offer an internship program.  Here at Hall Performance Horses our focus is to produce solid horses that can win in the arena and work on the ranch.


Kirk focuses his attention on making a versatile mount, using low stress techniques, that will excel in and out of the arena. Colts who are started at the ranch, are also used on the ranch, and gain exposure to cattle, ropes, the mechanical cow, and many miles outside. We take colts from start to finish, many being shown in the reined cowhorse, reining & cutting by Kirk or his customers. Feel free to stop by the ranch to say hello, take a lesson, and see how we do things here.

Kirk is a two time World Champion, an AQHA World Show level two finalist, a multiple time world show qualifier in reining, ranch riding and cowhorse, including placing 8th in the world in limited open bridle.  He is the AQHA region 2 all around champion and reserve champion, the north central regional champion in the limited open bridle, as well as the Cathy Coleman open bridle spectacular champion.  He has numerous futurity, derby, and horse show titles to his credit.  Kirk has even traveled to France, Italy, Spain, and Australia to judge and instruct clinics. He is originally from Oregon and attended the University of Montana. He spends his free time with his sons and practicing the guitar.
