The Zimmerman family has been involved in several facets of the horse industry for well over 35 years. Their involvement has included Reining, Reined Cow Horse, Cutting, Racing, Halter and Western Pleasure. In 1993, Vaughn and Justin Zimmerman consolidated their experience and past success with a business plan of acquiring a top performance horse breeding stallion with the lineage to produce quality performers with the athletic ability it requires to win the major open events in Reining, Reined Cow Horse and Cutting.

In 1997 they purchased a brilliant young stallion, Skeets Peppy, an own son of Peppy San Badger (Little Peppy) at the 1997 NCHA 2 YO Select Sale. After a very successful show career in Reining, Skeets Peppy was retired to stud at Cedar Ridge Stallion Station in Whitesboro, Texas.

Zimmerman Performance Horses is located on 150 acres just outside Springfield, Missouri. With a brand new 40,000 square foot, state of the art facility, they can easily accommodate not only the breeding and foaling of their broodmares, but also the training of their 2 year olds and several personal show horses. With the assistance of Zimmerman Performance Horse's resident trainer, Bobby Avila Jr, the 2 year olds are started, evaluated, and sent on to the top open trainer that can best develop the abilities of each young prospect.

You are welcome to visit the ranch and/or keep in touch with us about the future of your Skeets Peppy offspring. Thank you for your interests in the Skeets Peppy program.
