Alicia and Tom

Get to know us

Alicia and Tom have three growing enterprises - DD Gamble Guest Lodge and Ranch, Davidson's Mini Dreams LLC, a miniature horse breeding farm, and DMD Hearts and Hooves, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which brings therapy trained miniature horses to assisted living centers and the VA hospital in Tucson. All of our enterprises are nestled at the foot of the Chiricahua Mountains and entrance to Horseshoe Canyon.

In 2007, Alicia retired after 31 years as a Middle School teacher. In 2005,Tom retired from the U.S. Army as a Chief Warrant Officer 4 after 36 years. We both found retired life boring and started the breeding farm at our original ranch of 80 acres. In 2009, Alicia went to Lockhart, Texas to receive instruction in training miniature horses as therapy horses.

Alicia has just been elected as the School Board president for our one room school house Apache Elementary School District #42.  Apache has eight students in grades 1 through 7.

In 2011, the Guest Lodge property became available. We saw it as a way to expand our ranch and charity organizations.


All beef served at our table is from our own herd.

Our cattle are grass fed and growth hormone and chemical free.
