Welcome to Storibook Farm Performance Horses!
Located in Brush Prairie, Washington Storibook Farm is just north of Portland and the Oregon-Washington border.
Storibook Farm Performance Horses is dedicated to producing good minded, athletic, horses for the performance horse industry. Our horses have the conformation, brains, and stamina to stand up to the rigors of every day ranch work and the pedigree to back it up.

Storibook Farm Performance Horses
Becca and Dave King have loved horses since childhood. Luckily, they have been fortunate to be able to have them in their lives for the past 50 years.
While working as the Head Wrangler at Shiloh Ranch summer camp in Agoura, CA, Dave met cow horse trainer Rob Ferber. Dave would take the camp horses down to hold herd or turn back for Rob.
Impressed by the quality of horses and their athletic ability both on and off a cow, the Snaffle Bit Futurity bug bit Dave. He has carried the dream of breeding and raising a Snaffle Bit Futurity winner ever since.
Dave and Becca both worked as wranglers at the Camp O-Ongo summer camp. Dave spent 10 years riding Mounted Patrol horses for the local police department.
Storibook Farm’s cow horse breeding operation has focused raising quality horses with good minds, sound conformation and athletic ability. In 1982, they started their quarter horse breeding program with a race bred quarter mare, Double Bunny Bid. In the early 90’s they moved to Brush Prairie, WA. They have been breeding and raising paints and quarter horses since.
Their foundation mare, Double R Chances, came from Ronnie and Karin Richards in 2005. “Chances” offspring have made the show pen in Oregon, Idaho, Washington and British Columbia, Canada.
Storibook Farm’s horses are versatile and gentle. Dave takes SBF Chances Last Cat to Red Bluff each year to help a friend gather cattle off the winter pasture.
Dandy’s Hot Socks, “Missy”, is not only a great broodmare but also the go to saddle horse when small children come to our place to “ride a horse”. The Kings have sold many horses over years and count many of the owners as close friends.
The Kings cut back their breeding program, and now concentrate on producing the best colts possible with a limited broodmare band.
