THE PINE HILL RANCH
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.

Nearly 20 years of equestrian experience originating in Pinehurst, North Carolina, ranging from jumping and equitation, polocrosse, barrel racing, and trails. Lindsey would say her favorite event would be jumping but does not object to any specific discipline. She has always been interested in veterinary medicine and has worked closely with veterinarians over the years to gain extensive experience and knowledge, being able to provide the best care possible for the animals under her watch. Gaining her Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 2021 after taking a few years off from school to get married and start a life with her husband, moving state to state due to the military, she is excited to use the business side of her brain to run The Pine Hill Ranch. Outside of work she is spending time with her three horses and mini donkey. When she actually has a spare hour in her day, she enjoys lounging with her husband, three dogs and three barn cats.
Born and raised in rural Eastern North Carolina, McKayla has always had a passion for animals. She set her sights on going back to school soon to become a Vet Tech and wants to specialize in livestock and equine. In her spare time, she enjoys a variety of hobbies which include crafting, riding motorcycles, finding and exploring museums and aquariums, and most of all just spending time with her husband, German Sheppard, Sheppard Lab, and Doxie Spaniel. She lives by the motto “Home is where the heart is.” And Arkansas is quicky becoming home after her recent move here back in May of 2023. However, she swears that no body of water will ever replace the beaches of North Carolina!

Lifelong horsewoman and competitor, Raegan has been showing horses since the age of 7 in rodeo events, western pleasure, and the working cow horse. She has also shown in the AHCA obstacles competitions. Raegan has an incredibly high drive for making sure she is always learning and becoming a better horseman. She gave up showing for the past two years to instead choosing to teach and instill her competitiveness and drive in young horsemen and women. Raegan has had the opportunity to train under many talented horsemen and carries their knowledge with her into her personal and professional equine life. When not giving lessons at the barn, she enjoys spending time with her own show horses and her two dogs Delta and Wheeze.
