About the Farm

In 1965 Dee Bar Farms was created. Don Avila and Sheri started the Powell Butte farm which is named after AQHA Hall of Fame stallion, Docs Dee Bar. Don built each barn, dug every post hole and secured every pen. With daughter Sheri by his side and the support of a loving wife, Dee Bar Farms grew into one of the most beloved and sought after horse training facilities in the Pacific Northwest. 


These days, Sheri and husband Ronnie take ownership, chore responsibility, and great pride in keeping the farm top notch. They also host the property as a wedding venue, Dee Bar Weddings →

Please take a moment and visit our In Memory page, as we bid 'Happy Trails' to a loving husband, father and mentor, Don Avila. 

Sheri & Ronnie


Sheri has been around horses her entire life, and once you step foot into the stables, you'll see the legacy that has been built by her, her father Don and Dee Bar Farms. 

​Ronnie and Sheri come together to make all business and marketing decisions. Ronnie oversees the maintenance and hay programs. He takes pride in making sure of the quality that goes into the feed program and growing the most nutrient rich hay for all the horses boarded at Dee Bar Farms and of course is always ready when it comes time for chores.
