Circle C’s Ranch is owned and operated by Cheryl Carreno. Growing up on a farm in Ohio, Cheryl learned to love outdoor life and developed the know-how for running a ranch.

Later, Cheryl moved to Florida where she met and married Tampa native Tony Carreno. They made their home in Lutz, where Cheryl’s love for horses and her passion for barrel racing led her to establish Circle C’s Ranch in 2002.

A skilled horsewoman with over 25 years’ experience caring for horses, Cheryl and her staff run Circle C’s Ranch with professional attention and a steadfast commitment to the welfare of horses.


Cheryl and Tony live on the property and enjoy maintaining the beauty of their family home and ranch, and are dedicated to the upkeep and improvement of their property. As the owner and operator of T. Carreno Fill Haulers, Tony makes sure that the farm is always properly graded for excellent drainage, and the arena is regularly dragged for optimum footing.

The Carreno family enjoys cheering for their grandson, Colton, at dirt kart racetracks, cheering Cheryl on at barrel racing competitions, and relaxing with visits from their daughters and extended family at their bucolic Lutz home and ranch.
