Responsibility for the operation of the Gainesville Horseman's Ranch Owners Association transferred from the Developer to the Association in the fall of 2016. In January of 2017, the Association elected the Board of Directors shown below. To help the Board stay on course, they have drafted a vision, mission and set of values for the Association. These principles will help guide the actions of the board as they execute their duties.   

Vision: We envision a community with an inspiring western lifestyle where we can enjoy the advantages of family, friends, neighbors, and horses.


Mission: Our mission is to:

  • Preserve the Horseman’s Ranch quality of life,

  • Foster a sense of community,

  • Increase value for Horseman’s Ranch owners through effective and efficient management of the Association and enforcement of rules and covenants, and

  • Support initiatives and capital improvements that benefit the greater good of the community.


Values: In our activities to achieve our vision and mission we value: integrity, fairness, consistency, common sense, participation, respect, and cooperation—all leading to a sense of community.
