The Pine Hill RanchOur Staff
Bob Mullenax is the founder and owner of The Pine Hill Ranch. LLC. Bob fell in love with horses as a six year old little boy on the back of a Shetland pony named Dobber. As an adult, his fondness for horses was rekindled and he purchased a young American saddlebred named Red Hot Mamma. Red hot Mamma, aka “Girlfriend” would go on to become a show horse and earn Bob Six world championship titles. As a result, Bob’s fondness for horses became a passion for excellence.
As an entrepreneur, Bob is familiar with both failure and success. He has had his share of both. Today Bob owns several companies which provide health related services to nursing home residents. He attributes his successes to God’s blessings in his life.
Bob’s passion for excellence has become the standard for everything at the Pine Hill Ranch.
