The Art in Our House one of the perks of working for aqha is being surrounded by some great

western art. Every day, I pass a bronze of Wimpy, donated by the King Ranch, on my way to the front door of the office. Through the years, AQHA has been loaned and given some fabulous art. Our walls are festooned, and it has been remarkably easy to become accustomed to standing in front of world-class pieces as I wait for the elevator. Naturally, I’ve developed a favorite, and every time I see the Orren Mixer painting of Kid Meyers, I smile, like I’m seeing an old friend. Kid Meyers was a 1963 stallion by Three Bars (TB) and out of Miss Meyers by Leo. All three of those ancestors have been inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame, and Kid Meyers was worthy to follow in their footsteps, becoming the first AQHA open Supreme Champion, an accomplishment that takes years and is still so difficult to achieve that AQHA has awarded only 48 Supreme Champion titles. Kid Meyers’ breeder and owner, the late A.B. Green of Purcell, Oklahoma, raced the sorrel stallion to six wins and $11,155 in earnings before sending him to the show pen to earn grand championships in halter plus points in tie-down roping and western pleasure. What a great horse! And I get to walk past his portrait every day. Through July 27, you can see it, too. Visitors to the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum can say hello to my painted friend as the exhibit “Orren Mixer: Artist of the American Quarter Horse” hangs in the Scharbauer Gallery and the Kenneth Banks Theater. Kid Meyers is just one of the Mixer paintings in the exhibit presented by the Dogwood Foundation. Orren, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993, is probably best known for creating the painting of the ideal American Quarter Horse, but he painted a broad spectrum of Quarter Horses, many on commission. While AQHA owns many paintings by Mixer, who died in 2008, many more are in private collections, and I have never seen them. The Mixer exhibit includes many rarely displayed pieces, like paintings of Prissy Gold Digger and Teques Ben 13, which have been loaned for the occasion. I hope you’ll make time on your travels to stop by and see this exhibit. Many of these paintings might never hang in public view again. While I’ll never outgrow my love for the Kid Meyers painting, I have a new favorite – the one of two racing broodmares in a bucolic pasture. Both mares are in the Hall of Fame. One, Barbara L, was inducted in 2009. The other, Miss Meyers – the dam of Kid Meyers – was inducted in 2009. Year-End Winners

This month, the Journal recognizes the horses and exhibitors who had a terrific 2012. The year-end high-point award winners quietly pursued excellence for an entire year, and we want to acknowledge their accomplishments and determination. Please flip to Page 46 to start reading about these hard-working individuals. As a bonus, we’re including a little bit about the first high-point winners on Page 44. There were only six open high-point award winners recognized 60 years ago. larri jo starkey Journal Editor

Trailer Health By Dr. Thomas R. Lenz show season is just around the corner,

and even for experienced horse owners, transporting horses can be stressful. Close confinement, disruption in horses’ eating and drinking habits, different sights and sounds, envikey to transporting ronmental stressors such as hot or cold weather, and the increased risk for injury or illness make hauling horses an “adventure” many would your horse in good like to avoid. Whether transporting your horse a short distance or across the country, good preparahealth during the tion is the key to trouble-free travel and keeping your horses healthy. Rotten floors, worn tires, sharp edges or summer show season. faulty equipment are disasters waiting to happen, so take the time before the trip to thoroughly inspect your truck and trailer to ensure it is in good working condition. Travel stresses horses and puts them at greater risk for injury and respiratory disease, colic and laminitis (founder). Vaccinate your horses against equine influenza (flu) and equine herpes virus (rhino) at least two weeks before the scheduled trip. If you are traveling to a large show where your horse will mingle with other horses, it is also a good idea to ask your veterinarian to administer an immune-stimulant four to five days prior to departure. It is essential that your horse is healthy, well-rested and accusRest stops are good times to offer your horses water. tomed to loading and standing

in the trailer prior to departure. It’s also a good idea to teach your horse to stand tied to the side of the trailer in case he has to be unloaded temporarily during the trip due to a flat tire or mechanical problems. Use rubber mats and ample bedding to cushion the ride on long trips. To prevent head injuries, the trailer should be at least 10 inches taller than the horse being hauled. Horses spread their legs to maintain balance, so make sure they have enough leg room to do so. Use shipping boots and head bumpers or learn to wrap your horse’s legs. Leather halters are generally safer because they will usually break if the horse becomes entangled or choked. Using a quick release or “panic” snap to tie the horse is another good safety precaution in case they have to be released quickly. If a quick release snap is not available, make sure that a quick-release knot is used. When tying a horse in a trailer, allow enough rope length so he can maintain his balance, but cannot turn his head to the rear or get his head too low. If the weather is hot, provide good ventilation and avoid hauling in the heat of the day because the inside of most trailers is often 10-15 degrees warmer than the outside air. Check with your veterinarian for recommendations on electrolytes to maintain the horse’s vital body chemistry and fluid balance. If the horse is a finicky drinker and refuses to drink enough water during trips, camouflage the taste of unfamiliar water by mixing ¼ cup of vinegar or molasses in 5 gallons of water at home, then on the road you can mask the taste of strange water. Although many horses are hauled long perods of time without resting, I believe horses arrive fresher and healthier if the trailer is stopped and the horses are allowed to rest 20 to 30 minutes for every four hours of road time. They don’t have to be unloaded, as just stopping the constant motion of a moving trailer allows them to rest. Keep your horses on a consistent feeding schedule throughout the trip, and take along enough feed for the entire trip. Drive carefully, remain attentive and pull over when you need to make a telephone call. And finally, upon arrival, check your horses over thoroughly for signs of lameness, injury or illness. Happy trailering! Thomas R. Lenz, DVM, M.S., Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists, is a trustee of the American Horse Council, chairman of AQHA’s research committee and is past president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners.

Chicks Beduino By Richard Chamberlain

AQHA F ILE PH OTO

twenty seven years ago a gray flash

streaked to a stakes record in the season’s first Grade 1 test for 2-year-olds. On April 20, 1986, Chicks Beduino sprinted 350 yards in :17.66 in the Bay Meadows Futurity. “That colt was always a standout,” says John Creager, who was in the saddle for trainer Connie Hall. “The day of the trials, he was on his feet, and in the Futurity, he was really on top of it. He was an awful good horse. Horses like that don’t come along all the time.” The Futurity was the third consecutive vicThe flashy gray tory for the colt by Beduino (TB). A career earner of $412,099, Chicks Beduino went on to win the Governor’s Cup Futurity (RG3), flashes on. finish second in the Dash For Cash Futurity (G1), run third in the Laddie Handicap (G2), and light the board in the Kindergarten Futurity (G1) and Golden State Derby (G1). Bred by Joe Muniz of Templeton, California, and son-in-law John Bobenrieth of Costa Mesa, Chicks Beduino was out of the Chick’s Deck mare A Classy Chick, a half sister to the stakes-winning Easy Dozen mare Easily A Twelve ($357,732). Joe and John claimed A Classy Chick for $12,500 in January 1981 at Los Alamitos, at which point the mare had won once in five attempts. “Denny Ekins was our trainer then, and it was really him who picked her out,” says John’s wife Kathie. “Denny told us about her, said she was a really well-bred horse and the claiming price was really good for her. He thought it was the (previous) trainer’s fault that she hadn’t run better.” Denny took A Classy Chick to St. George, Utah, Chicks Beduino wins the Bay Meadows Futurity. for the trials to the Dixie Downs Derby.

“That’s when she slab-fractured her knee, jumping over a little puddle,” Kathie recalls. “So then as a broodmare, she tried to stay up and run with ‘Chick’ when he was running in the pasture. We finally had to put her down because she got so crippled.” “Chick really stood out in the pasture,” remembers Kathie. “Chick always wanted to be in front. When all the horses were running, he always wanted to get out in front.” Besides being a gray flash at home and work, there was something else about Chicks Beduino. “Chick was a very friendly horse, a people horse,” she says. “He loved to have his picture taken. You’d say, ‘You’re going to have your picture taken’ and he’d turn and look and prick his ears: ‘Here I am!’ It was amazing that when he was developing as a stallion, he was so good with people, just a very special horse.” Sent to Blane Schvaneveldt Ranch at Romoland, California, Chicks Beduino developed into the fifth-all-time leading sire, with eight champions, 133 other stakes winners and the earners of more than $35.4 million. “He turned out to be a heckuva a sire,” says Creager, who manages “Doc” Allred’s Rolling A Ranch at Atascadero, California. “Joe (Muniz) turned down some awful good offers at the time. He could have sold that horse for a lot of money. Joe made him pretty affordable to people when he took him to stud. He was a nice horse, for sure, and he got some pretty good numbers.” And that was without a lot of effort on the part of his connections. “Chick was real easy to handle, great to handle, even after he went to stud – that’s what Dale (Badon, Schvaneveldt’s stallion manager) always used to say,” Kathie says. “They had this connection that was pretty awesome. Chick and Dale just loved each other.” Chicks Beduino died in September 2003. But he still is flashing in world champion One Dashing Eagle, through his sire One Famous Eagle; champion Hez Our Secret, through his dam’s sire, Separatist; and champion Prospect To The Top, through his sire’s sire, Corona Cartel. “Chicks Beduino sure helped the industry a lot,” Creager says. “And he just keeps comin’.” Flash on.

handled underwear winter and summer. It worked like a thermos, he claimed: cold in the summer and warm in the winter. His old Blanchard spurs left tracks in the dirt when he walked because the heels were so worn down on his boots. Otis showed up at Barry’s place one morning to help him gather a cow and calf that had been missed. Otis is a real ol’ timer, a typical Arizona no-nonsense cowboy. “Is that a new horse?” asked Barry. “You bet,” said Otis. “Best horse on the ranch, goes back on a direct line to Man o’

War (TB), Yellow Jacket and Hancock. Why, Cody Ohl’s cousin-in-law almost bought him for Cody to ride at the Finals!” Barry was impressed. They set out on a high trot. However, about the third stride, Barry said he witnessed one of the most interesting bronc rides he’d ever seen. Otis went up and down for about four jumps and then the horse took off for the walnut grove doing 160 mph. WHAM! BAM! SLAM! Barry said he’d never seen anyone on a horse peel so much bark off of so many trees. Otis was hanging in there despite the fat lip, torn clothes and blood dripping from assorted contusions, abrasions and lacerations. He looked like he’d spent 15 minutes in a clothes dryer with a bear and 50 horse shoes. His horse was just getting warmed up as he squealed and bucked so high Barry could see the frogs in his feet. They came down in a heap, driving Otis’ head down in the dirt and adding more “crash marks” to his old Stetson, leaving it looking like something a hippopotamus regurgitated. After reviving, recovering, restanding and remounting, both cowboys resumed their search and found the missing pair. Otis immediately threw and caught the calf, and half-hitched the rope to the saddle horn. Then using the tried and true vaquero technique (although most tie the rein to the rope), he tied his left split rein around his leg as he dismounted to flank the calf. The calf did not cooperate. Having never seen a human up this close, he bawled and kicked. The mama cow was incensed and charged Otis. This “best horse on the ranch” saw a wreck coming and wheeled for home. He was accompanied by the calf, still tied to the horn, and Otis, still tied to the rein. Barry later remarked that he’d never seen such a strong split rein, as Otis, the horse and the calf careened through the junipers and banged over the rocks. Barry finally caught up with this cowboy version of the potato sack race and got ’em stopped, whereupon the cow laid a track up his back as he was cutting the rope and the rein. True to his cowboy nature, when he regained consciousness, Otis dressed Barry down for cutting his favorite rope and ruining his brand-new split rein. EPILOGUE: Barry said the last time he saw the “best horse on the ranch” was at the National High School Rodeo Finals in Rock Springs, Wyoming. They’d named him Otis.

leads to infertility.

Hemorrhagic follicle Day 3

14 A P R I L

mare was presented for breeding and eventual embryo transfer. The mare was in good physical condition. She was ultrasounded to monitor her ovarian function and to determine when she was coming into heat. A normal cycling mare should ovulate repeatedly during the breeding season at an interval of approximately 21 days. A single dominant follicle 20 to 25 mm in diameter is usually present when she first comes into heat. The follicle should grow at a rate of 3 to 5 mm per day in response to follicle-stimulating hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland. After three to four days of heat, the mare should have a dominant follicle about 35 to 40 mm in diameter. A prolonged surge of luteinizing hormone, is responsible for maturation of the dominant follicle and induction of ovulation. Ovulation consists of collapse of the dominant follicle, release of follicular fluid and expulsion of the oocyte or egg. The oocyte is collected by the oviduct and transported where fertilization may occur if the mare has been bred. Meanwhile, the collapsed follicle refills with blood from small capillaries around the outside of the follicle. The eventual blood clot provides the framework for cells that invade, multiply and eventually build the corpus luteum that will produce progesterone necessary to take the mare out of heat and support a pregnancy. The mare in our clinic initially

had a 25-mm follicle on her left ovary and multiple small follicles on her right ovary. Two days later, she had a 36-mm follicle on her left ovary and edema in her uterus, indicating that she was in the estrous or heat phase of her cycle. Once the semen order was confirmed, the mare was administered a dose of deslorelin acetate to induce a timed ovulation. The next day, the semen arrived and the mare was inseminated. The follicle had increased in diameter to 41 mm and appeared normal, and we anticipated that she would ovulate that evening. However, the mare had other plans. The following day, an ultrasound examination revealed that the mare had not ovulated and instead had evidence of bleeding into the follicle. As noted above, hemorrhage is normally a post-ovulation event. Hemorrhage into a dominant follicle is associated with ovulation failure and retention of the oocyte within the follicle. Despite the fact that the mare was inseminated, failure to expel the oocyte would make pregnancy impossible during that cycle. During the next few days, the hemorrhagic follicle exhibited a progressive increase in the amount of echogenic material in the lumen as the blood clotted and fibrin strands developed. Eventually, this structure developed into a “luteinized anovulatory follicle” and produced progesterone similar to that of a normal corpus luteum. The mare received a dose of prostaglandins nine days after initial formation of the luteinized structure, which should result in complete regression of that structure and allow the mare an opportunity to come back into heat. We are crossing our collective fingers and toes that she will actually ovulate next cycle. Approximately 8 percent of mare cycles result in ovulation failure. The percentage is highest in older mares and quite low in young mares. Unfortunately, mares that exhibit ovulation failure during one cycle are likely to repeat the event in subsequent cycles. Of all the potential reproductive issues encountered in broodmares, failure of ovulation may be the most frustrating for owners and their veterinarians. Patrick M.

Detail The hind limb – looking at the stifle

the horse’s hind limb supports just 30 to 40 percent of his body weight;

unlike the front limb, its main function is not weight-bearing. “We have to keep in mind with the hind limb that its primary function is to propel the horse forward,” says Dr. Jerry Black, veterinarian and director of Colorado State University’s Equine Reproduction Laboratory and Equine Sciences Teaching and Research Center. The ability of the limb to propel the horse has everything to do with the quality of its muscling and bone and how the angles of those bones join together – and the largest bones and muscles responsible for the power of the hind limb come together in the stifle. The conformation trends that begin in a horse’s croup (last month’s topic) continue in the stifle, the largest joint in the equine anatomy.

Stifle “the stifle joint is made up of three bones, the femur (thigh), tibia and

patella (kneecap); it corresponds to the human knee,” Dr. Black explains. “It’s very flexible and produces a tremendous amount of stress and concussion during the process of extension and moving the horse forward. The ligaments in the stifle are dense ligaments because of the pressure placed on them.”

A stifle joint with good angulation

He adds that “ligamentous injury in the stifle” is one of the most common injuries in the western performance horse, which is also true of knee injuries in the human athlete. “Fortunately, veterinarians now have the capability to evaluate stifle injuries in a much better fashion than in the past,” Dr. Black says. “We can pinpoint specific ligament injuries using a variety of imaging options.” He adds that developmental bone lesions in the stifle are another problem common to all breeds, such as subchondral lesions some of which lead to osteochondritis dissecans. To evaluate the stifle, Dr. Black looks at three things. “First, it’s critically important that the entire stifle region has well-developed muscles,” he says. “That would include the musculature in the area of the thigh, the triangular area made between the stifle itself up to the point of the hip (tuber coxae) and back to the pin bones (tuber ischii).” AQHA and World Conformation Horse Association judge Tim Finkenbinder adds that muscling in the stifle region is best seen standing behind the horse. From the rear, the stifles

should be the widest part of the hindquarters. “You want to see the power down low,” Tim explains. “You don’t want a horse that is wider across up at the hip than he is lower, at the stifles. You want a good, rounded hip coming down into bulging stifles, a pear shape.” Second is angulation. “Good angulation between the femur and the tibia allows a horse to be more flexible and better able to pull his legs up underneath himself,” Dr. Black explains. “In a working stock horse, a good angle in the stifle enables him to stop and turn athletically. “If that angle is open too much – excessively straight – it hampers the horse’s ability to do that,” he says. In addition, too little angle in the stifle can lead to a tendency to experience conditions such as upward fixation of the patella. “The angle from the point of the hip to the stifle correspondingly carries on down from the stifle to the hock,” he adds. The limb as a whole will trend toward slightly wider, straighter angles, or slightly more closed angles. THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL A P R I L 2 0 1 3

A slight opening up or widening of the stifle angle (left) straightens the limb and hampers the hind limb’s ability to flex. On the right – a stifle angle slightly more closed.

Finally, Dr. Black wants “all of those bony structures to be strong with good bone.” The lower end of the femur and the upper end of the tibia should be broad so the stifle joint has increased surface area for strength. He adds that a too-narrow and weak stifle in terms of bone

and musculature is not commonly found in Quarter Horses, as a breed. “The stifle and hock work in unison,” Dr. Black says. “They are part of the ‘reciprocal apparatus,’ they flex and extend at the same time.” Musculature and bone remain important throughout the hind limb, and the angulation trends that start in the stifle continue on down the hind leg.

BORR≤W A TR AINER Lengthening stride at any gait. By AQHA Professional Horseman Michael Colvin with Christine Hamilton Illustration by Jean Abernethy

the western pleasure class is intended as a basic class

that prepares a horse to move into other western events, and asking for a lengthened stride in all gaits plays right in with this goal. If you have a solid base of work at the walk, jog and lope, with both control and extension of gaits, it’s easier for a horse to move on to all-around events like horsemanship, trail and western riding. All of those events require a horse to have elasticity, the ability to expand and contract his stride as his rider maneuvers him around a pattern. He has to have control, but must move forward when his rider needs him to.

You have to understand, however, that lengthening a horse’s stride or extending the gait is not about going faster. You cover more ground because you’ve asked for a longer stride while maintaining the same tempo. A horse that keeps the same length of stride but increases his tempo – he just goes faster in his legs – is not what we are looking for. The lengthened stride I expect for western pleasure is a definite lengthening, but it’s not the full-fledged extension that I expect in a horsemanship pattern. The extended gaits asked for in the horsemanship are fundamentally the same, but are a more aggressive, bigger, bolder lengthening. The basic thing that you are asking for from your horse is the same, you just carry it farther.

Lengthening when you watch a horse lengthen his stride, it will look

like the horse opens up in his stride, in his legs. The actual length of the stride will grow, as will the amount of ground he covers at that moment. Riding, you’ll feel that, too, but you’ll also feel your horse start to relax and let go, and the stride will open underneath you. Done properly, it’s not a feeling of him running off or increasing his tempo, but of him coming more underneath himself in the hindquarters. The transition from a normal stride to the lengthened stride should feel smooth, like the feel of an automatic transmission in your car shifting.

Starting the Lengthening when working on your horse’s elasticity, the gait where

you can get the most accomplished is a medium trot or jog. At that gait, you can really work on getting a horse to respect the boundary you set with your hand and the bridle, and yet not be intimidated by it. I think it’s because the legs move in even, diagonal pairs at the jog – the body mechanics are more simple and bilateral. It’s not so fast or forward a gait that a horse or rider tend to get worried or rushed. It’s a good pace for both horse and rider: more forward than the walk, but not so forward as the lope. What a horse learns at the jog easily carries over to the other gaits. For a horse to lengthen, you have to have a little feel with his mouth as a starting point. That doesn’t mean a tight contact, but a connection with your hand – you can be on a longer rein and have your horse connected to your hand. With your hand, you activate a boundary with the bit and bridle, just by holding steady in your feel with his mouth. Then you ask the horse to move up with your leg, voice, an active seat, whatever is the way you’ve trained your horse; I use my leg and voice. You are asking him to add energy to the situation. If he is balanced in your hand and you add the energy, then that stride is going to lengthen underneath you. When you add energy, the idea is that the horse’s body in motion stays contained behind that boundary, but his legs move up and have the freedom to go through it. If you don’t set that boundary with your hand and you add energy, the horse’s body will lengthen and that’s not what you want. You want him to maintain his In a lengthened stride at any gait, the horse doesn’t get longer in his body, but in his legs. At the jog, you would see the legs open up underneath the body, so the front legs step more forward and the hind legs step more forward.

frame in his body, but extend his legs and lengthen that stride. When I do clinics, people often have control issues one way or the other. They either send everything through that boundary – legs, body weight, everything – or they keep everything behind the boundary and the horse is shut down in his stride. Riders sometimes “chase” a horse to get him to lengthen his stride, but that causes him to get hurried and quick with his legs. He might start pulling himself along in the front and his back end might even go out behind him. If you let him relax and ask him to move up to your hand using your seat and leg and voice, driving him to that opened stride, you’ll feel him come underneath you and move out in front of your leg. It is especially important with a green horse to allow the horse to learn how to walk, jog and lope in a quiet manner first, at his own pace, before you ever ask him to extend any gait. A horse must develop his own self-carriage and good, correct, balanced gaits before you can ask him to lengthen. If you ask him to lengthen before he has gained his own self-carriage, then he never learns to be settled in that gait. Let him learn confidence and self-carriage first.

Practicing the Lengthening i do a lot of work on a circle, asking for transitions:

jog, to extended jog, back to jog. Then, later, I ask for lope, to extended lope, back to lope. I typically start by asking for transitions in full-circle or half-circle increments: for example, I jog one half circle, then extend the jog for a half circle and back down to the jog. Once he’s hooked into that exercise and gives a good effort, I walk as a release, still on the circle. The stronger and more confident he gets and the more elastic his stride becomes, I’ll do any combination of transitions you can think of on that circle to make it more challenging. Maybe I will make the transitions closer together, or make the circle larger or smaller. Working on transitions between gaits – such as walk to jog, or lope to jog – will also help a horse’s elasticity. On that circle, you can ask him to lengthen his stride and

UNLOCKING Some horses have been locked down to go slow and short so much that you have to really work to get them to release their stride to go forward. It can be especially true of a horse that has had a strong spur stop put on him. In a spur stop, riders will “ride the brakes” with their spurs on a horse, and the horse is trained to hold that controlled stride, so the more you push with your legs, the slower and shorter he goes. In that case, you have to work on retraining your horse to a new cue. Get your horse to release from your leg, to think forward when you cue. Instead of a constant pressure with my legs, I’ll flag or wave my legs at his sides, or I’ll bump him with my feet to ask him to go forward. You have to be patient as you work on getting him to release his stride. Again, the jog is the best gait to start work on this. Eventually, when he learns he can go forward, you’ll be able to press in with your leg and send him forward, but you have to unlock him first and change what the cue of steady pressure from your leg means.

maintain some shape and form to his body. Then I might add some straight-line work to practice the feel of going through the bridle, getting that connection where he respects the bridle in his face and body, but is not intimidated by the bridle, and feels the freedom to let his legs go through that boundary. That freedom is the first step toward great western riding lead changes (see sidebar). And that elasticity and lengthening you gain will serve you well, not only in western pleasure, but when you do the all-around events as well. Christine Hamilton is an editor of The American Quarter Horse Journal. To comment, write to chamilton@aqha.org.

OPEN UP TO LEAD CHANGES I like for a horse to always step up to the lope. For example, to enter a horsemanship pattern really nicely at the cone, as a rider walks to the cone anticipating a lope-off, I want the horse to step up to that lope, to lengthen his stride. Not to run to it, not to ball up his body and hop up to it, but to allow his legs to step up and forward in that moment of the lope-off. We want that for horsemanship and certainly for western riding. When you watch the best western riding horses in the country, they actually open up for the lead change. When you watch them lope across the arena to prepare to change, those horses actually step up to the lead change … that is a piece of lengthening the stride. One of the most common mistakes I see in a lead change is closing the stride. As the rider prepares the horse for the lead change, putting him in the right position, the rider has to use his hand and leg and move the horse over and in that process, the horse will often close down a stride or shorten the stride. If you chase the horse, he doesn’t open his stride, and you’ll get a quicker, shorter change. The way that a rider is able to make his horse change so nicely is that in that process of setting up the change, he can actually open the stride instead of closing the stride. In the lengthening of the stride is when that pretty change appears.

Two-Rein Symbiosis of the mecate and bridle reins has enhanced training since the vaqueros developed it into an art form.

it has been more than a year since aqha added the two-

rein rig as an option in working cow horse classes. AQHA Professional Horseman Jimmy Stickler, San Luis Obispo, California, has taken full advantage of the accoutrement. “I’m very happy with being able to show in the two-rein and think it is a great addition,” Jimmy says. “I hope people use the option as a training technique.” Jimmy has used the two-rein as a training tool for some time and finds the traditional rig helps finish better bridle horses and ultimately produces horses that anyone, including amateurs, can show successfully. A Shining Spark stallion came into Jimmy’s barn as a green 7-year-old. The flashy American Quarter Horse was fluent in the hackamore, but at an age that required he be shown in the bridle. Jimmy originally predicted the horse would not be ready to show until summer 2012, but by grabbing an extra set of reins, he was doing well in the show pen by March. “I just put the two-rein on him and started riding,” Jimmy says. “The two-rein keeps horses steering and light in the face and gets them into the bridle so much faster. If the two-rein is tradition, I want to keep tradition going; it helps me tremendously.”

Like Drunken Sailors most of jimmy’s young bridle horses are schooled in the

two-rein on a daily basis. Call the two-rein old fashioned or a lost art, it is a serious part of his program. The hackamore teaches a horse to respond to outside rein pressure and is a first step in neck reining. The two-rein is the buffer that transitions a horse from the hackamore into a solid bridle horse. Jimmy starts by using a small hackamore, the two-rein mecate, more than his bridle reins on greener horses. Horses that were not exceptional hackamore horses often excel with the addition of a bridle, according to Jimmy. The trainer starts off steering the horse in many directions around the working area at varying speeds maneuvering them around like “drunken sailors,” until they respond to outside rein pressure as a conditioned reflex. “Once you get them to start looking away from that outside rein, then life becomes really easy when it is time to go down the fence,” Jimmy says. “We don’t have to handle straight reiners as much as cow horses. But, when you’ve got to pick your hand up and go right and left in a hurry, you’ve got to have that response – the response the two-rein teaches.” Jimmy uses an outside leg to help the horse look into the turn in the direction it is traveling. Looking away from outside pressure, he says, keeps the horse looking toward where he is headed, not where he has been. “I move him around, making him look away from my outside leg,” Jimmy explains. “I’ll use both legs to keep the horse squeezed up and going forward while I’m collecting him with

Bridle horses that respond to outside leg and rein pressure simplify cow work, Jimmy says – especially going down the fence.

Keeping the rein hand centered at the neck is important; crossing across the plane of the neck tips the head in the wrong direction.

Jimmy says the two-rein teaches horses to move away from outside pressure, causing them to look where they are going, not where they’ve been.

my hands. At the same time, I want him to simultaneously move away and look away from that outside pressure.” “When I’m going down the fence I use the outside leg, not the cow-side leg,” Jimmy adds. “Hopefully that is going to kick their hip in and make them look at that cow even more.” Keeping his hands close to the center of his saddle horn is crucial to Jimmy. He tries not to pull his hand beyond his hip when riding one-handed in the two-rein, incorporating both reins and constantly making sure the horse doesn’t cock its head toward the outside rein. When a horse responds to inside pressure, its nose will tip to the outside, which is not acceptable. “I have to think of the future,” Jimmy says of his training. “There is probably going to be a non-pro riding these horses at some point in time. I get them as broke as I can to simplify things for the horse and amateur later on. The best results come from getting them through the hackamore and the two-rein before they step up to the bridle – the traditional route.”

Rein in Success most of jimmy’s amateur clients show in reining or cow

horse bridle classes, so they are riding one-handed all the time. Because most amateurs tend to contract an occasional case of brain freeze when showing, Jimmy believes their horses “darn sure better know their job and respond when something happens.” Riders, he says, can also benefit from practicing and showing in a two-rein rig. “When you put that many reins in non-pro hands they can get a little overwhelmed,” Jimmy says. “It takes some getting used to, so you have to ride in it every day and practice with

it. Getting that feel for knowing if you need more or less bridle rein as compared to the mecate is the experience that comes from being familiar with the two-rein.” One of Jimmy’s pet peeves are people who school and warm up in a snaffle, correction bit or similar, then throw the tworein rig on and head into the show pen. They do the same in the hackamore classes, appearing not to realize they have left their horse clueless. “I don’t know if I’m old fashioned or I just want more control,” Jimmy says shaking his head. “I want to know that my horse is broke to whatever I have on his head; I want to know that he knows what it means and what to do with it.” Riding off the bridle reins as the two-rein flaps in the breeze does not sync with tradition either. Jimmy tries to keep the mecate and bridle reins playing equal roles when schooling at home or showing. The horse just shows better when he is used to the feel, he says. There may be an infrequent exception when schooling. “When I’m schooling, I try not to do much different than showing, because in the long run, my goal is to get horses broke so anybody can ride them,” Jimmy says. “But one thing about the two-rein – when you need a little help – is being able to reach down with your free hand and take hold of the mecate. It can help get a horse looking into where he’s going a little. “I try to stay away from that as much as possible, but on a young horse, doing that does teach them to look away from the pressure, because the hackamore teaches them that. It is a much better fix than trying to pull them around with bridle reins; you don’t want to be using that direct rein. But using my other hand isn’t something I do often.”

AQHA Professional Horseman JIMMY STICKLER, 46, grew up riding, roping and showing horses. The son of AQHA trainers Harry and Lynn Stickler, Jimmy rode and showed Quarter Horses in all disciplines, although he preferred roping. He was reserve champion in tie-down roping at the 1981 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show. Jimmy says he has learned from many people, including his parents and AQHA Professional Horsemen Don Murphy and Todd Crawford. Jimmy also has a lot of cowboying and ranching experience, which helped him enter the reined cow horse industry with early success. Jimmy, an AQHA judge, serves on the National Reined Cow Horse Association judges committee and also holds that group’s judging card. He is a serial major event finalist and has won numerous events including the 2005 NRCHA Limited Open Derby. Jimmy’s teaching skills find him with a sizeable amateur and non-pro following as well. “AQHA has just been really good to me and has been my background,” Jimmy says. “I have some very nice bridle horses to show NRCHA and also haul horses and non-pros to AQHA shows.” Jimmy trains in San Luis Obispo, California, where he resides with his wife Kim. Their children, Taite, 13, and Shaley, 15, are both competitive riders.

Jimmy likes to have a goal with a planned course of action when training horses and non-pros, which he says, “is not rocket science,” but it does involve spending some time. “The two-rein is a big weapon in our arsenal; we just need to take advantage of it,” Jimmy says. “There has been a generation that basically skipped that part of the training process and I was darn sure guilty of that. We got so intent on hurrying to get them broke that we kind of forgot about the horse. People want results from their dollars. But, if you can talk owners into taking time and doing things right, they’re going to be a lot happier riding their horse.” Annie Lambert is a special contributor to The American Quarter Horse Journal. To comment, write to aqhajrnl@aqha.org. Putting a fistful of reins in the hands of non-pros can be overwhelming, but learning to ride and show in the two-rein improves horse and rider performances.

THE RIGHT FIT Jimmy Stickler, an AQHA Professional Horseman, values the two-rein rig in his training program. The San Luis Obispo, California, trainer, however, stressed the importance of fitting the equine headgear properly. Having a bosal that is too light, too soft or too long does not demand an equine response, according to Jimmy. The bit must be one the horse is happy wearing. Jimmy recalls one horse he was trying to ride using lighter bits in conjunction with the two-rein. When nothing was working he went back to his oldfashioned spade and the horse packed it perfectly – a vaquero horse to be sure. “Sometimes you can have a problem with the horse’s face being pinched between the bosal and the bit,” Jimmy says. “Maybe your headstall is too thick, for example. Normally the two-rein lies right in the little groove where your headstall attaches to the bit.” Finding the right fit might entail moving the bosal up and down until you find the correct fit. But, Jimmy warns against getting it too low on a horse’s nose where it can cut the air off, causing distress. “Everything has to fit for many reasons,” Jimmy reiterates. “I think if people would take the time to learn how to fit and use the two-rein it would become second nature and improve their horsemanship. If they would really understand and use the two-rein for training, it could benefit everybody’s program.”

Jimmy fits the bridle and hackamore together carefully to avoid pinching and ensuring equine comfort.

Plymouth, Michigan, and now of Florida. Colleen, who sold “Silky” to Jan, immediately wrote to the Journal about her memories of the talented and occasionally difficult sorrel horse. Silky’s long road to the world championship started, Colleen says, because she had been loaning a horse to a couple of local boys to show in youth classes and they tipped her off. “They were such good kids,” she says. “They knew I liked Doty’s Socks, Silky’s sire, and they knew of a horse I would like. They said the horse is going to need some training, but he’s really built to be a working horse.” Colleen had a real weakness for Doty’s Socks, so she put $500 down for Silky and paid off the rest of the $1,300 price tag – a

on him, but he got scared because the horse actually started running backward.” Besides running backward when he was being ridden, Silky Socks ran backward when he was being mounted, sometimes falling over. And then there was the cough that turned out to be emphysema. Silky Socks wasn’t looking like much of a bargain. But Colleen and her husband, Gary, were nothing if not stubborn and hopeful. They put the 9-year-old on a powerful course of antibiotics to help his cough, got him on a healthier diet, and then Colleen went to work teaching him manners. “I spent several days, mounting him dozens of times, holding and using a dressage whip to prevent him from running back,” she says. “I didn’t have an indoor arena, so I would take him out and gallop him clear around our fourmile block on muddy, dirt roads before I’d even start working with him.” The first time she made that gallop, she discovered yet another hole in his training: He’d lived his whole life in stables and had never been around insects. “We had him outdoors, and the bugs started biting him,” Colleen says. “He went ballistic. So I turned him out with the bugs for a while to get used to it.” And then he wouldn’t change leads behind when he was on a jump course. That wasn’t going to fly with Colleen, either. She got out her dressage whip again and took Silky over a little jump course she had set up in her front pen. “I brought him around a corner, and he didn’t change his hind lead,” she says. “I took that whip and flicked him in the hocks from the outside, and he kicked out and tore out 10 feet of 5-foot fence, boards and all. But he never dropped a hind lead after that, and I’m still here.” A month later, Colleen was showing Silky – and winning – in working hunter, jumping and hunter under saddle, then known as bridle path hack. Out in the show world, Silky would meet his greatest competition – Ojibway. Ojibway and Silky had a lot in common. Ojibway was a 1963 sorrel gelding. Silky was a 1964 sorrel gelding. Ojibway’s sire was a reining horse; Silky’s sire was a rope horse. Both Silky and Ojibway were stout horses, and they both could jump. “I owned Ojibway as a yearling, 2- and 3-year-old,” Colleen says. “I showed him in halter and western pleasure, and he was entered in the reining futurity at the All American Quarter Horse Congress, but I had to scratch him when they asked his rider, John Stutzeman, to judge it.” Jan Thompson, then of Plymouth, Michigan, bought Ojibway for her daughters, Lindy and Susan, to share, but he had turned out to be mostly Susan’s horse, and Jan wanted another horse for Lindy. “Silky was third in the nation, and he was giving Susan a lot of competition in working hunter and jumping,” Colleen says. At one particular show in Wayland, Michigan, she says, the two horses were evenly matched. “It was almost dark,” she remembers, “and we had a jumpoff with Ojibway. (Show officials) had to use the lights of cars (to light the working area) because there were no lights in the arena. And they had to use one 2x4 (board) that was the jump. My husband made them turn it so the wide edge showed. Back then, you had to show until someone bumped


THE REST OF THE STORY • Silky Socks tore a suspensory ligament at 17 and retired from competition. He was donated to a barn down the road where he was used for grooming lessons for children. “He’d just stand there and let them climb on and off,” Colleen says. • Colleen and Gary Miller have retired, but they still keep their hand in working with their own horses. They ended up buying Doty’s Socks – the stallion that Colleen loved – when he was 19, and they got two foal crops from him before he died of cancer at age 21. • Ojibway and Susan Thompson won the youth world championship in jumping in 1974. Ojibway was in the top five in year-end standings in working hunter throughout the 1970s and in 1975 was third at the World Show in senior working hunter. • In addition to winning a world championship with Silky Socks, Jan Thompson was world champion in amateur western pleasure in 1976 with Buckeye Leo San and world champion in hunter under saddle in 1978 with Come Qua. She was also the year-end high-point hunter under saddle with Come Qua that same year. She was world champion in hunter under saddle in 1980 with On The Money. She moved to Florida, where she now shows Border Collies. • Lindy Thompson – now Linda Grosvenor – has two daughters of her own who are showing ponies in Florida. After Silky Socks retired, Lindy went on to win a youth world championship in hunt seat equitation and a reserve youth world championship in hunter under saddle with Come Qua.

a rail. They had to keep raising it.” Silky Socks won, and Colleen thinks that’s when Jan made up her mind to buy him. Jan doesn’t remember it quite that way. “People thought we were absolutely crazy, buying this big, old gelding for this little teeny girl. I mean, he was big and stout,” Jan says. “I had been watching him at different places. He looked like a really reliable horse for her, and he was so gorgeous over a fence.” Colleen didn’t want to sell him, but she needed a new indoor arena if she wanted her Michigan-based horse training business to move ahead, so she sold Silky and a little 2-yearold Poco Pine filly. “I cried the day the Thompsons picked him up, because they let me show him at a couple more shows in Berrien Springs, (Michigan),” Colleen says. “They were going to take him after that last show, and wouldn’t you know, he went and won the jumping in the open part against the Thoroughbreds, and I was, ‘Oh, no, all I wanted to do was get past the last day. Don’t do something spectacular!’ ” The magic between Silky and Lindy was near-instantaneous. “He was a project, he really was,” Jan says. “He was super awesome, but he was a coward, basically. He was scared of a lot of things. At that time, (citizen band radios) were prevalent. He picked up the name ‘Super Chicken,’ and so that became my CB handle.” But that didn’t apply when Lindy was on him. “Once I saw her just climb up the side of his leg and get on – no mounting block or anything,” Colleen says. “He just stood there. And I saw him quit (a fence) with the professional rider, but I never saw him quit with Lindy.” The 45-pound girl had been riding fearlessly since age 3. She showed the gelding in everything, youth classes and open ones, even riding him in western occasionally. “He was just a great guy, he really was,” Lindy remembers. “When we first got him, a lot of people said, ‘Oh, that horse is terrible; I can’t believe you bought him for your child. He’s going to kill her. He’s real spooky.’ But he and I got along great.” Their relationship was special, Jan says. “He carried Lindy for a couple of years, he really did,” Jan says. “He took care of her. But then when she got to where she knew what she was doing a little more, if he just didn’t like that jump, he’d run right up to it and shut down.” Lindy has a long list of Silky’s quirks. “He wouldn’t step off the trailer,” she says. “He wouldn’t walk into the wash rack. When you washed him, he was afraid of the soap bubbles. “As he got older, he did get better. He would stop quite often at horse shows. He would always stop at the first jump or the last one. If you could make it around, you were good. You were golden. He did have quite a peek in him. But he taught me how to ride, so it was great.” Still, he continued to amass points, and he qualified for the 1974 AQHA World Championship Show in bridle path hack with Jan, who decided to enter. At the time, no one knew that a world championship would become such a prestigious honor. Jan just knew the Louisville, Kentucky, location was within her driving range, and bridle path hack was a class that Silky was good at – sort of. “If you rode him on the flat, you had to – well, you didn’t throw his reins away,” Colleen admits. “She said the last thing (the judges) did (at the World Show) was call for a hand gallop,

Doty’s Socks

and they wanted them to run when they called for a hand gallop back then. Then they said, ‘Stop and drop your reins.’ ” Jan’s heart was in her throat, but she stopped Silky’s gallop and dropped her reins. Silky stood quietly. And together they were the first amateur world champions in what’s now known as hunter under saddle. “You know, English was brand-new then, and when you went to a (Quarter Horse) show, nobody really knew how to set courses or anything,” Jan says. “But it was fun. It was pioneering.” THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL A P R I L 2 0 1 3

Jan eventually quit riding Silky Socks, but with Lindy, he was year-end high-point youth working hunter in 1975, 1976 and 1977 in AQHA competition in addition to their successes on the hunter-jumper circuit. And in 1977, Lindy showed him in open working hunter at the World Show against all the adults and trainers to a reserve world championship. The 1974 gelding by Doty’s Socks and out of Coker’s Troubles by Hank H – the troubled gelding who feared bug bites and soap bubbles and would spook whenever he darn well felt like it – ended his AQHA career with 280 points in youth, open and amateur, a world championship, a reserve world championship, multiple appearances at the world shows and three year-end high-point awards. And he gave Colleen one more little bit of satisfaction. Remember that trainer from the original barn who didn’t care for Quarter Horses? At a big show in Detroit that included A-level hunter classes and a few Quarter Horse classes, that trainer pulled up in a trailer with a dozen high-dollar, high-caliber, highly maintained horses with absolutely no Quarter Horse blood in them. “We put (Silky Socks) in all the working hunter classes, the A circuit ones that weren’t Quarter Horse classes, and he won six straight and beat (that trainer) in every class,” Colleen says. “And he came up to me and said, ‘That’s Silky Socks? We couldn’t even get him over a fence!’ ” She smiles. “It’s extra-rewarding to rehab one and have him become a star.” Larri Jo Starkey is an editor for The American Quarter Horse Journal.

back on top of the 2012 bank of america all-around amateur standings is Kaleena Weakly and Hours Yours And

Mine. In 2011, the duo set their sights on the award and hauled to earn it. In 2012, they reaped the reward of the previous year’s hard work and solid foundation and found themselves back on top in the standings. “To be 100 percent honest, we had no intention of hauling for the all-around this year,” Kaleena says. “The year before when we did it, she was so green, and we were still teaching her a lot. “This year, she was a lot more seasoned,” Kaleena adds. “We went out, and we did really well. We didn’t go to as many shows. We went to larger shows, and we did well. The points just piled up so at the end of the year, we were able to sit home and not go to shows like we had to before when we were chasing points.” Hours Yours And Mine is a 2006 sorrel mare by The Radical Hour and out of the Blazing Hot mare One Pretty Blaze. Kaleena is thankful for her husband and fellow horse show enthusiast, Josh Weakly, for his support helping her earn another all-around amateur award. “Josh is my biggest thank you for the year,” she says. “We

bought the horse together when she was a 2-year-old. We’ve done it all together.” Josh and Kaleena live in Shelbyville, Illinois, and met at a show in 2002. Josh shows halter horses, and Kaleena focuses on a variety of classes. Kaleena’s favorite class is showmanship. That’s reflected in the success that Kaleena and “Blondie” have had in that class. Together, they have earned 737 lifetime points in showmanship. In addition to winning the all-around amateur title, the pair also picked up the 2012 high-point amateur showmanship award and high-point amateur performance halter mares award. Blondie was also the 2012 high-point senior performance halter mare. One of the highlights of the 2012 show year was placing sixth at the Bank of America Amateur AQHA World Championship Show in horsemanship. “We are really proud that we were sixth at the World in horsemanship,” Kaleena says. “Sixth place felt like winning to me because we were really proud of her pattern. It was a great show for us.” Kaleena says that Hours Yours And Mine has developed quite a following at the horse shows, but hardly anyone knows the mare by her registered name.

“Everybody at the shows and a lot of judges know her as Blondie,” Kaleena says. “It’s pretty cute. It’s probably due to Facebook because I’m kind of a Facebook freak with photos. “We do a lot photo shoots with my really good friend Mallory Beinborn, who has Impulse Photography,” she continues. “We have a blast, and we do crazy things. We will turn Blondie loose, and she loves having her picture taken. She loves the camera. It’s funny because she acts like a person. People tease us because we are always getting our pictures taken, but it’s a fun pastime for us.” Kaleena also credits trainers Jason and Jessica Gilliam for her success in 2012. “Jason and Jessica have been behind us all the way,” she says. “All three of us taught her everything she knows.” In the future, Kaleena hopes to share Blondie with the Gilliams’ 2-year-old daughter Shayne for lead-line classes. As far as Blondie’s immediate future, she’s spending a little time early in 2013 in the breeding shed. “We’re going to pull embryos,” Kaleena says. “We are doing that now.” Hours Yours And Mine will be bred to Lazy Loper, but Kaleena plans to continue showing her in 2013. “I have a couple of young projects that I am trying to show, too, but it’s a lot of fun to have an old broke horse that you can rely on,” Kaleena says. “We’re going to keep showing her at the big shows and keep having fun.” Kaleena and Josh are also trying to start a family of their own, so they are not planning on hauling for the all-around title again this year. But, then again, that wasn’t the plan for 2012, either. “Whatever happens, happens,” Kaleena says optimisticly. “The future is full of possibilities.”

RODENSKI Erika and her best friend, ‘Winslow,’ had smooth sailing to the 2012 A≤HA-Markel youth high-point title. By Jennifer K. Hancock

Y

you might say that erika rodenski and good time to win

licked the competition in the race to be the Markel youth highpoint winners in 2012. But that’s just what “Winslow” does. He licks everything, and his favorite thing to lick, it seems, is his 18-year-old show partner. “He’s just like a dog,” Erika says with a laugh. “Whenever I am not paying attention to him, he tries to lick me to get my attention – whether it’s on my arm or my face, he doesn’t seem to mind.” And what better time to get in some licks than during practice? “During showmanship practice, he will get bored and lick me – almost like, ‘Are we done yet?’ ” Erika says. “He’s one of those who’s too smart for his own good,” Erika continues. “He can do a lot of things, but when it comes down to easy tasks, it’s like brain surgery for him.” Looking at Good Time To Win’s show record and seeing the 300 points that he and Erika have accumulated during the past few years in showmanship, you’d think that the gelding was an old pro in the class. But when Erika’s family purchased the now 13-year-old gelding, showmanship wasn’t in his bag of tricks. “When we got him and we were doing the vet check, they had to chase him to get him to trot,” Erika recalls. Now that he has learned the skills, he’d rather not practice too much, but he and Erika are doing something right. In 2012, Erika and Good Time To Win were the youth trail high-point winners. They also finished second in the year-end youth standings in showmanship, western riding and performance halter geldings. They were fourth in the year-end

standings in horsemanship. They also had two top-10 finishes at the 2012 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show, finishing fifth in trail and eighth in western riding. The many accomplishments of 2012 took years of hard work and dedication. When an 8-year-old girl arrived at Jim and Linda Becker’s Becker Show Horses 10 years ago with little horse experience and no show experience, it was impossible to know the success that she would achieve. Today, that little girl is a high school senior, and the Beckers consider her family. Together they have traveled many miles and made many memories thanks to American Quarter Horses. “She’s a great student, and she has done very, very well,” Linda says. “She has had a great show career. I don’t know if she has ever been to an AQHA show where she didn’t earn a point. “She’s a great kid who never gives you one second of problems,” Linda adds. “She’s always on time for her lessons; she’s very conscientious on the care of her horse. She’s been with us since she was 8 years old, and we’ve never had one iota of a problem with her.” James Collier Jr. of Loxahatchee, Florida, bred Good Time To Win. The gray gelding is by Good Time To Shine and is the only foal out of the Winchester mare Winchesters Baby, who qualified to open, amateur, Select and youth world shows in multiple classes during her show career. Foals by Good Time To Shine, who is by Zippos Mr Good Bar, have earned more than 3,000 AQHA points all divisions combined and more than $23,000 in National Snaffle Bit Association earn-

“She likes to go first if she can,” Linda says. “She always volunteers to go first. She’s done that since she was little. She’s really secure in what she’s doing. She’ll step right up and go first if they need someone to go. It would be great if every kid was that good.” Erika’s passion for horses is taking her from her hometown of Hickory, Pennsylvania, to Waco, Texas, in the fall, where she’ll be part of the Baylor University women’s equestrian team. “She moved way up in the horsemanship this year, and she got a scholarship to Baylor,” Linda says. Baylor is part of the National Collegiate Equestrian Association, and Erika will be riding for Cindy Walquist, Baylor’s western coach. Erika plans to enroll in the Baylor nursing program. “We went and visited this fall, and I really liked it there,” Erika says. “Cindy Walquist is awesome.” The award-winning year or her entire show career wouldn’t have been possible without her parents, Vickie and James Rodenski. “My parents have been big supporters in everything,” Erika says. She’s also appreciative of her horse show family. “I’ve been riding with Jim and Linda since I was 8,” Erika adds. “They’ve done a lot. They have shaped me into the rider that I am.” She’s also thankful for Angela Gay and Patty Vatterott for selling her Good Time To Win, “because that was a big portion” of winning the title. Erika has enjoyed the family time that showing horses has given her. She has been able to spend time with her younger brother, Victor, at shows. He doesn’t show horses but driving the golf carts is his favorite part of the shows. Linda describes Erika and Winslow as best friends, and Erika agrees. “I love him to death, but he’s a strange character.” Jennifer K.

ings. Of his 115 foals, Good Time To Shine has sired four AQHA Champions all divisions combined. Winslow is a true all-around horse, and is shown in both western and English classes. Erika has earned youth points in halter, showmanship, trail, reining, western riding, horsemanship, western pleasure, hunter under saddle and hunt seat equitation. “He’s good at everything, but trail, showmanship and western riding are his strongest classes,” Linda says. What’s Erika’s favorite class? It’s a tie between trail and western riding. “ ‘Win’ likes trail a lot,” Erika explains. “He was born to do that. It’s his class. I like to do it because he likes it. I like western riding because it’s challenging. You have to go in and lay down your best pattern because if you are off on one (maneuver), the whole rest of the pattern is going to be downhill.” The only downside to winning the all-around title seems to be the coast to the finish. “We started in Florida, and we had a good show there,” Erika says of how the year began. “We took a two-month break. Then we went to March to the Arch, and I had a pretty good show there. By mid-July, we started doing really well. One weekend, I accumulated 70 points, so we just kept going at it. In July, we decided that winning the all-around was probably within reach, and we should probably try for it.” If they had a crystal ball to see into the future, they would have known that the title wasn’t only in reach, it was almost secured. “We did the math at the end of the year to see where I could have stopped and still won the award,” Erika explains. “At the end of July, I could have quit showing and still won.” “She’s done fabulously,” Linda says. “She’s had smooth sailing all along really.” Linda and Jim have developed Erika into a confident competitor who’s not afraid to lead the way.

Catichi Phenomenal is the word that best

describes the 2012 Bank of America high-point junior horse.

S

some people in the horse industry might say that it takes

a miracle to win a year-end award and that the stars have to align just right. Darling Catichi’s connections have proof in a walking little sorrel phenomenon. It’s really no wonder that the word “phenomenal” comes up a lot in conversations about the now 6-year-old mare. “She’s just a phenomenal individual,” says AQHA Professional Horseman Chris Anderson of Merino, Colorado, who trains “Darling” for Linnea and Herman Zueck of Golden, Colorado. Part of sire Cat Ichi’s freshman foal crop, the mare is out of the Colonel Freckles mare Colonels Darling. A son of High Brow Cat, Cat Ichi himself has nearly $240,000 in National Cutting Horse Association earnings. He won the 2004 NCHA Derby and was reserve in the 2004 NCHA Super Stakes. He is listed as the 2009 AQHA leading NCHA freshman sire. His progeny have won more than $1.8 million in NCHA competition, $8,000 in National Reined Cow Horse Association competition and nearly $12,000 in AQHA World Show competition. The Zuecks took a chance on Darling, who was in training to be a cutter when they purchased her in the spring of her 3-year-old year. Chris had just sold some horses for the Zuecks, and they were in the market for “a nice one.”

“A friend told me that this mare might be for sale,” Chris says. “I tried her and really liked her. Day 1, that mare just wanted to try. It didn’t matter what you were doing, she just wanted to try. It doesn’t matter if you are practicing on her or showing her, that mare’s always giving you 110 percent.” Chris capitalized on the small mare’s cutting training and introduced her to working cow horse, but his specialty is roping so it wasn’t long before he was swinging a rope off her. “We started heeling on her late that fall, and she wanted to be phenomenal in the roping,” Chris says. Phenomenal. See a pattern? “As a 4-year-old, we continued to heel on her, and I started roping calves on her, and she was outstanding,” Chris says. “We qualified her for the (AQHA) World (Championship) Show her 4-year-old year in heeling and tie-down roping. She was still just a touch green as a 4-year-old in the tie-down so we didn’t show her at the World Show. But we showed her in heeling.” Enter AQHA Professional Horseman J.D. Yates, who is no stranger to the all-around title. “J.D. is a good friend, and we were practicing together at the World Show,” Chris says. “J.D. said, ‘You know if you picked your spots with that mare, you could head on her.’ When we came home, I started working on her in heading. All of a sudden, we were heading. We went to Denver. I

caught my finger dallying in Denver and hurt my finger. J.D. showed her the last day in Denver, and he told me, ‘That’s a hell of a mare.’ ” And the phenom was just getting started. When Chris and Darling left the horse show at Denver, they had racked up more than 40 points. “From what I won in Denver and then the next show (the Black Hills Stock Show), we had more than 80 points,” Chris says. “I asked J.D., ‘Do you think I could win that all-around deal on that mare?’ “When I told him how many points we had, he said, ‘You gotta hell of a chance, but if you’re going to do it, you better keep going.’ ” So go they did. With the blessing of Herman and Linnea, Chris and Darling hit the road, often with fellow Coloradoan and J.D.’s cousin Jay Wadhams, who is also an AQHA Professional Horseman. “It wasn’t necessarily a goal to start with,” Chris explains. The goal for 2012 was actually to get Darling Catichi qualified for the World Show. “When we left Denver, she was qualified in all three events,” he continues. “We got her qualified in one show.” When you reach one goal – set the bar a bit higher. “Jay Wadhams showed her quite a bit at some of the big

horse shows,” Chris says. “She just fit Jay phenomenally. I showed her in heading and (tie-down) roping, and Jay showed her in heeling. He won the (All American Quarter Horse) Congress on her in heeling.” In addition to the Congress win, she also finished fifth at the World Show in junior heeling and was second at the Oklahoma Redbud Spectacular in junior heeling. She also won the heading and tie-down futurities at the Black Hills Stock Show and was the champion in the Intermediate heading at Battle in the Saddle. She finished at the top of the year-end standings in junior heading and junior heeling, and she was third in the year-end standings for junior tie-down. She was the all-around junior high-point horse and was second in the overall all-around standings. Overall, when age is not considered, she also was third in the year-end standings in tie-down roping, third in heading and second in heeling. Herman credits the horse and her trainer. “Chris did an outstanding job with this mare,” Herman says. “Chris will go rope a steer on her and come back and hand her to Linnea. When Linnea gets on her, she walks away like she’s 18 years old and been doing it all her life. She can change her personality from being a performance horse to just being a horse. It’s just amazing. “We met Chris when he was a student at the Colorado School THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL A P R I L 2 0 1 3

of Mines,” he adds. “He has a great personality and has a great work ethic. Chris has done a wonderful job for us. Chris and Darling surprised us. They didn’t surprise themselves because they knew what they were doing, but they surprised us.” Of course, Chris always brags on the horse. “She would do whatever anybody wanted her to do,” Chris says. “If the cutters would have kept her, she would have been a great cutter; if we would have taken her down the road as a cow horse, she would have been a great cow horse; she would have been a great mare no matter where she was. She’s just a phenomenal individual. It just so happens that Herman and Linnea bought her, and she ended up with a roping trainer so now she’s a great rope horse.” Bred by Thomas and Suzanne Gowan of San Antonio, Darling Catichi has amassed 377.5 points. She has earned 231 points in heeling, 105.5 points in heading, 33 points in tie-down roping, seven points in performance halter, five points in barrel racing and three points in pole bending. “I messed around and ran some barrels on her at home because I needed something else to fulfill the all-around,” Chris says. “When I was a kid growing up, I ran barrels and poles at all the 4-H events, so I had a pretty good understanding of what I was doing. The way she is bred, she has phenomenal speed.” “She wanted to be pretty good at home so I just started paying attention to when the barrel entries were pretty good,” he explains. “When we were in Iowa, they had a bunch of barrel racers show up, so I entered. And sure enough, we earned some points. So we entered the next day. And we won some more. I wasn’t sure that I had the right points because this was the first time that we had tried to win this award. Someone told me that we didn’t have the right points so I entered the pole bending because I thought we needed more points. But it turned out we didn’t need any more, but we got them.”

As well as the mare adapts to new challenges, Herman and Linnea are considering using her in Versatility Ranch Horse competition. “Linnea and I show a little bit,” Herman says, “so Linnea may take her and show her. Chris is going to show her in cow horse this year and see how she does. We’ll probably end up keeping her and raising some colts out of her. We think she has a lot of potential.” So while most of Darling’s story sounds like a typical talented American Quarter Horse wins year-end award story, there is a twist. Chris and Darling were returning home from Battle in the Saddle with another of the Zuecks’ horses, and when they topped a hill about 20 miles from home, the trio encountered some wayward cattle. “He ended up destroying his truck, destroying his trailer,” Herman recalls. “Darling was in the trailer along with another one of our horses. When Chris got it sorted out and got out of the truck, the truck was in one bar ditch and the trailer was in the other.” Miraculously, Chris was able to get the end gate open and remove the horses from the wreckage. “The only part of the truck and trailer that wasn’t hurt was where he was sitting and where the horses were,” Herman says. “He unloaded them, and they had a few nicks and cuts on them, but nothing that required a vet. Chris’ girlfriend brought another truck and trailer, and Darling jumped right in and the other horse jumped right in behind her. It was amazing that Chris didn’t get hurt, No. 1, and the horses didn’t get hurt, No. 2.” Phenomenal indeed. Jennifer K. Hancock is a special contributor to The American Quarter Horse Journal.

All-around high-point horse has an all-around great personality.

By Jennifer K. Hancock

when you earn more than 100 points in a month, the

AQHA all-around award that began as a dream becomes a more realistic goal. And when you have a stallion, actively used in breeding, yet he’ll stand in the middle of the arena with the reins draped over the saddle horn like a gentleman with all kinds of pretty mares and other commotion all around him, you know that you’ve got a special individual that has the temperament and intelligence to carry you all the way to end. Hard To Get Playboy embodies the characteristics that have made the American Quarter Horse known as the world’s most versatile horse. It’s no wonder that this all-around athlete is also the 2012 all-around high-point horse. Owned by Corey and Marquette Powell of Abilene, Kansas, “Playboy” is by American Quarter Horse Hall of Famer Freckles Playboy and out of the Smart Little Uno mare Uno Bonita Gal. The Powells purchased the stallion on the advice of AQHA Professional Horseman Jamie Stover, also of Abilene. About four years ago, Corey met Jamie through his grandparents, Bill and Carole James. The Jameses own 3J Ranch in Abilene, where Corey learned to rope. “I actually purchased him through a sale,” Corey says. “Jamie Stover, who is my trainer, actually had him since he was a young horse. Jamie told me to buy him when he went through the sale.” “I got to ride him for a guy that was local and trusted me to ride him,” Jamie says. “Playboy stayed at the ranch. Even when he wasn’t in training, he was boarded here. The (former

owner) took a new job and moved out of state so he wanted to sell him. We put him in a public auction, and I talked to the Powells about buying him. Corey was looking for a nice horse. He sure has been one of my favorite horses.” Jamie gives good advice, and he’s a good teacher. Corey has a reserve world championship title to his credit and owns the 2012 all-around high-point horse. Not too bad for someone who has been in the Quarter Horse business about four years. Corey is a fast learner. In 2011, he and Hard To Get Playboy were the reserve champions at the Bank of America Amateur World Championship Show in amateur heeling. So following on that success, Playboy’s connections decided to pursue the all-around title. “We went to Denver, and we won the circuit in the heeling,” Jamie says. “We put 31 points on him. I had a pretty good notion that I wanted to show him for high-point last fall. I’ve always wanted to do that and I never had. It’s hard on a horse, because you have to go a lot of miles and go a lot of places. Playboy is getting older.” The now 12-year-old bay stallion wasn’t showing any signs of slowing down, though, and from Denver, they set their sights on South Dakota. “At the beginning of the year, Jamie put 100 points on him at in just one month,” Corey remembers. “We go to Rapid City and I enter him in the heading,” Jamie says. “He’s a little horse, and everybody thought that was wild.

I don’t remember what we won, but we won a lot. We had a few dry stretches where he didn’t win as much as I thought he should have and then there were times when he won more than he deserved. It’s a balance throughout the year.” Bred by Dr. Ernest H. Harper of North Little Rock, Arkansas, Playboy’s genetics say cutter and so does his size. But his heart and attitude are willing to tackle just about any task thrown at him. “He’s little bitty,” Jamie says. “He’s not very big. He was supposed to be a cutter, but he never went that route. I do cow horse on him, rope off him and show him in some ranch horse competitions.” While some journeys to the year-end awards are filled with rocky roads, Playboy’s was pretty smooth. “He took it really good because I probably asked him for more than I should have, especially showing in heading as much as I did,” Jamie says. “I didn’t show him in cow horse a lot. I tried to keep him pretty fresh for the World Show because the cow horse is so tough there. I showed him in heading, heeling and tie-down everywhere we went and sometimes the steers were about as big as he was. “His heart is big,” Jamie adds. “He has never quit, and he has never really been sore. We are lucky that he has been as sound as he is. For as much as I’ve asked him to do, we’ve never had to lay him off. I didn’t train on him or rope on him at home. If I did anything with him, I’d just lope him down the road. He stayed really good all year that way. He got to rest when he was home.” Playboy and Jamie’s all-around skills had them representing the American Rope Horse Futurities in the World’s Greatest Horseman Shootout at the Battle in the Saddle Shootout in 2012. And Playboy continues to gather awards and prizes with his connections. He has earned 633.5 points, 433.5 of which have been in heeling, but he also has points in heading, tie-down, cow horse, halter, pole bending and barrel racing. Playboy and Corey have amassed 126 points in amateur heeling. “This year, I was high-point Nebraska rope horse,” Corey says. “I picked up my saddle this weekend that I won for that, and I ended up second high-point amateur in heeling for the year-end awards.” Corey describes Playboy as a cross between a gelding and human. “That’s why everyone likes that horse,” Corey explains. “At the horse shows, we take him out in the ropings to the middle of the arena and throw the reins over the saddle horn and leave him. He won’t bug anyone. He’ll stand there all day long. A lot of the horse show people like him because of his disposition and personality.” There was a time when he acted differently and was misjudged. “He’s real personable, but he didn’t have the best start in the world,” Jamie says. “A guy bought him when he was a young horse and rode him himself and did a good job, but the horse wasn’t exposed to other horses until he was about 4 or 5 years old. A lot of people would have thought that he was ‘studdy.’ But I think that he was lonely. He was awful ‘squealy.’ Most people would have misunderstood him because he was so noisy. They would have treated him like a stud, but that’s not his personality. It’s not that he’s a stud – he’s just excited to be around horses and people. “He finds people that he likes and he gets attached,” Jamie continues. “When I go to load my trailer, if he’s not getting

in the trailer, he gets all excited about it. If I haven’t hauled him in a while and you go to load him, he wants to be the first one in. He’s a pretty neat horse.” And how has Playboy adjusted to being the award winner and not the award chaser? “He’s not liking it a great deal,” Jamie says of Playboy staying home more this year. “I didn’t take him to Denver, and he was banging on his stall door wanting to go when I left. You can tell that he’s happier when he’s going.” Jennifer K. Hancock is a special contributor to The American Quarter Horse Journal. To comment, write to aqhajrnl@aqha.org.

THE PEDIGREE If the name Freckles Playboy sounds familiar, well, you’re right. He was featured in the March issue of the Journal because he was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame at the AQHA convention last month. Terry Riddle started the sorrel colt and trained him for breeder and owner Marion Flynt, a Texas oilman. The two men pointed “Playboy” to the 1976 National Cutting Horse Association Futurity, where he was the co-reserve champion. At the 1977 NCHA Derby, he was third, and he also won an AQHA world championship in junior cutting that year. In 1978, he was second in the NCHA Finals and third at the AQHA World Championship Show in senior cutting. He earned 25 AQHA cutting points and $59,976 in NCHA competition. After Freckles Playboy was diagnosed with navicular syndrome in 1979, he began a fulltime breeding career. From 2,084 foals in 26 foal crops, Freckles Playboy sired 13 AQHA world champions and 17 reserve world champions. In NCHA, Freckles Playboy is ranked third on the list of all-time leading sires, by offspring earnings. His sons and daughters tallied an amazing $24.5 million in NCHA earnings. Freckles Playboy offspring also earned more than $285,000 in the National Reined Cow Horse Association, more than $125,000 in the National Reining Horse Association and nearly $177,000 at the AQHA World Championship Show. The Dam Side While Uno Bonita Gal didn’t garner any points in an AQHA show pen, five of her 11 foals have done well for themselves, predominantly in the cutting pen. Of course, you know all about Hard To Get Playboy, but then there’s HL Bonita Boon by Blue Bayou Boon who has more than $20,000 in NCHA earnings; Unos Instant Choice by SR Instant Choice with more than $6,000 in NCHA earnings; and Unos Holidoc by Holidoc with nearly $7,500 in NCHA earnings. Uno Bonita Gal is by Smart Little Uno and out of the Doc’s Oak mare Pam Oak. With more than $100,000 in NCHA earnings, Smart Little Uno also has an AQHA open world championship in junior cutting. He won the NCHA Super Stakes in 1992, as well. The sire of 360 foals, Smart Little Uno’s foals have earned nearly 1,400 AQHA points all divisions combined. His foals’ competition earnings are nearly $1.5 million in NCHA, a little more than $10,000 in NRHA, a little over $112,000 in NRCHA and more than $20,000 in AQHA world show winnings.

Follow along with 2-year-olds on the track. Part of a continuing series By Richard Chamberlain

T

the journal each month looks at the development of freshmen racehorses. in 2013, the

Journal is following 2-year-olds conditioned by C.W. “Bubba” Cascio and Mike Robbins, both of whom have returned to training after years away from the Quarter tracks. A member of the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame, Bubba trained many of the breed’s legendary sprinters, including two-time world champion Dash For Cash, world champion Dashingly, and All American Futurity winners Three Oh’s and Rocket Wrangler. Mike from 1977 to 1994 sent out the earners of more than $5.3 million, including world champions Sgt Pepper Feature, Dashs Dream and Special Leader. The latter two were homebreds racing for Joe Kirk Fulton’s Quien Sabe Ranch. Mike conditions horses exclusively for the Fulton Quien Sabe Stonewall Ranch. The Journal spoke February 18 with Mike and February 11 with jockey Cody Wainscott, who is breaking and riding 2-year-olds for Bubba.

Cody Wainscott Riding for Bubba Cascio we worked two colts this morning, and we worked three colts yesterday. the last

two weeks since I’ve been here, we’ve just been riding them around, getting them used to me being on them, getting them used to carrying weight and everything.

Before I got here, Bubba drove them off a horse, with driving lines for two or three weeks, and got them knowing everything they needed to do when a rider got on them. So they knew what was going on when I stepped a foot up on them, and I didn’t have to reteach them. I’m 27 years old, from Allen, Oklahoma. When I was little, my dad used to break a bunch of horses, and I’d seen him (drive colts horseback), but I hadn’t ever seen anybody else do that. The horses are a lot more broke when you get on them. Bubba bits them out for a few days in a stall, to teach them to tuck their heads a little bit. Then, whenever he drives them, he makes them turn left and right and back up, so when I get on them they know what to do. If you don’t do that, when somebody gets on them, they’re kind of wild and you have to fight them here and there. It makes it a lot easier on a guy – and on the colt, too, who knows what’s going on before you ever get on them. It’s less likely to get me or the colt hurt. It puts us so much farther ahead, too. Doing it this way, it’s like they already have three weeks of riding before I ever get on them the first time. They learn a whole lot in that first week, (more) than most would in just getting on them and going in a month. It saves a lot of time. I’d been riding the colts in a barrel (racing) saddle, getting them used to me being on them, and I’d been riding them in the arena. Yesterday was the first time any of them had been in a flat saddle and out on the track, and they went out like old horses. For me, “breaking” a colt is getting him used to me personally, letting him know me and getting him to do every-

thing right. We take our time with them and show them what we want, so they’re not scared of this or that. When we take them somewhere, they’ll relax a lot better than most horses because we don’t rush them. On race day, you want them to relax so they don’t wash out, or duck or dive from something they haven’t seen before. I think a colt is broke when he’s relaxing and showing us that he can relax without getting hyped up, showing us that he’s doing everything that we’re wanting him to do. Today and yesterday was the first time we really let them stretch out, and they went out as straight as a string and did everything right – even going around the turn. Going around a turn, most babies want to shy out. We got them to where we can just barely touch them and they’ll glide on around there. Instead of throwing their heads up and wanting to bolt out, they’ll tuck their heads and go on around with no problem. I’m learning a lot, riding for Bubba. I’m still young, and there are a lot of guys out there with a lot more experience than I have. For him to notice the things I’ve done over the past year, and want me to come and work for him, it means a lot. I sure appreciate him giving me the chance to work for him.

in flat tack. We went from there to doing some gate work. I breezed them twice with company in the past two weeks. They’re coming right along. Our next deal with them will be to hand-open the gate on them a time or two. Then we’ll go to working them away from the gate. We finished reworking the track and we’ve got the gate out on it. While we were revamping the track, we had the starting gate set up near the barn, where we would ride the babies through it going out and coming back in from the pasture. Now we take them in going to the track and back through coming off it, every time we take them. The babies are all pretty much on the same schedule. We were riding them every day for a while, until we got them fit. We were doing that in stock saddles, and then once we put them in flat tack, we were still riding them every day except Sunday. Now they’re being galloped an average of four times a week, every other day. It’s a five-eighths-mile track. When we take them out on the track, we jog them close to half a mile, then we gallop them three-quarters of a mile, not quite a full mile. Then we pull them up, we turn them and slow-trot them back around, let them walk up to the gate, walk them through the gate and take them to the barn. So far, we haven’t had a minute’s problem with any of them. They just fell right into the routine and they’re doing great. During the next three or four weeks, we’ll hand-open the gate on them either once or twice, depending on how they leave, how they break. If they break good like that set last year did, I won’t hand-open them again. Last year, some of

them, when we hand-opened them, just immediately left there. If they do that, I’ll just go ahead and kick the gate on them, and I’ll work them in pairs every time. If they don’t (break and leave), then I’d bring them back and do it again the next time I breeze them – hand-open them again until they kind of figure it out. Usually, after the second time, they’ve pretty much got it down. What has been most pleasing to me so far is how willing these horses are to train. Used to, I’d run into the hard-head or two. These colts that I have are just all really willing and sure-nuff want to go do it. Big, nice horses, too, that’s what’s good. Lots of breeding, lots of looks and they’re showing some ability. I’ve got several I really like. The two PYC Paint Your Wagon fillies are doing great. The Corona Cartel filly and the two First Down Dash fillies are doing great. Those five are really standing out right now. Among them, I really can’t separate any one as being the top, because I haven’t done enough with them yet. They’ll all go to Houston. I’ve got a couple that are in the Sam Houston Futurity (G2) – whether I run them in it, I don’t know yet. But I’ll try to give them all an out there toward the end of the meet before we go to Ruidoso. I have a limited barn, a small inventory. I’m not one of those guys with 30 to 60 head of 2-year-olds. I’ve got nine, so I’ve got to take care of what I’ve got. I have to pick my spots. Each one has to count. When I trained for Joe Kirk (Fulton) before, I’d only have six, seven, eight head of babies for him, but we always came with one that could run.

Ricky

R

Ramirez

ricky ramirez is doing what he believes he was born to

do: ride racehorses. At 27 years old, he is already one of American Quarter Horse racing’s top jockeys, and he’s just starting to check marks beside his long list of goals. The amiable Odessa, Texas, native started his journey to the winners circle at a very young age. “My dad always had Quarter Horses in the barn and there were match races nearby,” Ricky remembers. “When I was about 13 years old, a jockey didn’t show up for a race and my dad asked if I wanted to ride. All my friends said, ‘Do it!’ “I was really nervous, but I rode and we won. I made $50 and thought I was rich! Now I was the one who could buy sodas for my friends. I liked that, and I liked the adrenaline rush. So I started to ride in match races on weekends – my dad wouldn’t let me take time off from school for it – but he never tried to talk me out of my goal to be a jockey, either. He’s always supported me 100 percent, whatever I wanted to do.” Today, Ricky is a proud family man whose wife, Alejandra, and young son, Santiago, travel with him to races around the country. “It means everything to have them with me,” he says. “Now our motorhome makes it possible to be together. When it’s time for Santiago to begin school, we’ll think about buying a home. My family is the greatest gift life has given me.” Ricky’s extended family also includes the father-and-son team of racehorse trainers Blane and Trey Wood. In 2010, Trey sent Ricky out aboard Johnny Trotter’s Bodacious Dash to win the richest horse race in Texas, the $1,036,612 Texas Classic Futurity (G1). Last year, he rode Hez Our Secret, champion 3-year-old colt, for the same connections. “As a jockey, Ricky is a natural with amazing ability,” Trey says. “And he’s always looking for ways to improve. “Beyond that, Ricky is like a brother to me,” he adds. “He’s a great guy and a family man, and he’s as close as family to us. Fish, hunt: we do it all together.” There’s little time off in a jockey’s schedule that includes riding, racing and travel almost 365 days a year, but Ricky appreciates the variety of his days and the variety in the

68 A P R I L

2 0 1 3 THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL

horses that he rides. “Every horse has a different personality,” he says. “When you exercise them, you can feel how they’re doing and what they’re thinking.” When his schedule permits, Ricky goes to the horse sales, always looking for the next racing superstar. What does a jockey look for in a prospect? “Speed, of course. Heart – because it’s key for a horse to want to win. And good sense – because smart horses win races.” The words that best describe me:

Goal oriented

Yes, my dad, Hector, is the biggest horseracing fan that I know! And his father was also. When my dad was young, he rode in match races, but he didn’t make a career out of it.

Did you grow up in a “horsey” family?

When did you first know that you wanted to be a jockey? I was born to do it. Ever since I can remember, I

wanted to be on a horse. When I was growing up, every Labor Day our family went to Ruidoso Downs to see the running of the (Grade 1) All American Futurity. So I grew up with the goal to ride in the All American – it’s the Super Bowl for jockeys. I’m the youngest of four children, and today my entire family, including my nieces and nephews, come to watch Uncle Ricky ride in the All American.

How did you get started professionally? A friend of my dad’s was a trainer at the track, and he introduced me to a jockey’s agent named Dominic Rivera. I started riding match races at 13 and was able to get my professional license by the time I was 18. Do you have a real-life hero – someone in racing that you greatly admire? My idol is Jacky Martin, in my opin-

ion the greatest Quarter Horse jockey ever. He won the All American seven times. At the track, he was quiet and kept to himself; I didn’t get to know him well, and I’d say we were rivals but also friends. I greatly admired the way he rode. Sadly, in 2011, he was paralyzed when a horse he was riding fell.

This young jockey is going places – fast. Ricky Ramirez

If you could invite any anyone – living or dead – to join you for an evening around a campfire, who would you invite? I’d invite both of my grandfathers

because in life I had too little time with them. I’d have my dad’s father, Manuel, and my mother’s father, Ricardo. I’m named after him. They were both horsemen, and I know they would have stories to tell and advice to give. And I’d have a lot of questions to ask. We’d have a lot of catching up to do! Being healthy and successful in both my professional and my family life

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Ricky Ramirez rides Bodacious Dash home in the 2010 Texas Classic Futurity. It was Ramirez’s first win in a million-dollar race. What’s it like to be in the starting gate, waiting to take off? It’s part adrenaline rush; part making sure I get

a good start. The starting gate can win you the race or it can cost you the race. Any mistake there is costly because a Quarter Horse race is a sprint and you need to get out first – you only have a few hundred yards to make it up – not much time.

What’s the biggest thrill of riding racehorses? Winning! What was your most memorable win? My first big futurity win was special: the 2008 New Mexico Spring Futurity (RG1) on Hearts Runaway. It was one of my goals, and it was especially great to have my dad there to see it.

Bodacious Dash, a real smart horse who liked his job. He was cool, calm and easy to get along with – and I rode him to win my first $1 million race.

What horse will you never forget?

What is the greatest race you’ve ever watched?

Probably the first All American Futurity I saw with my family. It was a big deal for a young boy. Is it hard to maintain your riding weight when your wife is a great cook? Fortunately, weight is not a big issue

for me. I race four days a week and I watch my diet on those days, but I’m usually able to eat whatever I want.

I’ve been very fortunate not to have bad spills with major injuries. Once, I broke my hand and was off three weeks. Jockeys are very aware that trainers need to go forward with training – that’s just business – so if a jockey is laid-up too long, a horse can be taken away from you. How does a race injury impact you?

Healthy and riding. Now, I’m in the top five riders in the nation; in 10 years, I hope to be the top rider. About seven of the top 10 jockeys are in their 40s and 50s, and that’s because experience helps a jockey have the right reaction – and that wins races. So with 10 more years of experience, I hope to be riding even better.

Where would you like to be in 10 years?

What qualities do you most admire in a friend?

Loyalty, honesty, a sense of humor

How did you meet your wife, Alejandra? Was it love at first sight? We met during our sophomore year in high

school. She caught my eye and we became friends right away, but I definitely had to convince her that I was the one for her. We were married in 2008. That was a really good year for me: I married Alejandra, was the leading jockey at three tracks and got with trainers Blane and Trey Wood. He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. This morning, I only had to get on one horse, so I took him to the barn. Some days there are 10, 12 or 15 horses to ride – I’m busy and he can’t go. But when he can, he loves all the attention a 2-year-old gets, and he does his best to make people laugh.

Tell us about your son, Santiago?

When you have time off, what’s your favorite thing to do? I like the outdoors and, if time and weather permit, I

If you had a different job, what would it be? Probably a veterinarian because I’d still have the opportunity to be around horses. What achievement are you most proud of? Winning three $1 million races – in 2010, 2011 and 2012 – and qualifying for the All American for the last four years. What’s the best advice anyone’s ever given you for being a jockey? Mark Villa told me, “Always listen to the

advice others give you. Don’t argue. Listen. If you can use it – do.” What’s the best advice you’d give to someone who wants to be a jockey, too? I would pass on Mark Villa’s

good advice and add: Never think you know it all. Always be open to learning something new.

Do you have any special routine right before a race?

Tuf Cooper and Twisters Enola Gay

RODEO’S YOUNGEST MILLIONAIRE Tuf Cooper is good with numbers. From memory, he can tell you how much he won at the first rodeo on his PRCA permit ($743.37, Hattiesburg, Mississippi), how much he won in his first PRCA rodeo as a card holder ($1,023, Huntsville, Texas) and how much he got for his first rodeo win ($5,371.03, Logandale, Nevada). Now he has a new milestone to commit to memory. And it’s a big one. On February 22, Tuf became the youngest cowboy to reach $1 million in career earnings, surpassing that milestone at the San Angelo Rodeo just 22 days after his 23rd birthday. It broke the 20-year-old record of 23 years, 9 months, set by ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee Ty Murray during the Fourth of July run in 1993. “That is a very cool thing to be in the same category with Ty Murray at least once in my career, considering all that he has accomplished in the sport,” Tuf said. “It’s amazing. It means a lot to me. I can still remember when I was about 9 years old and it was between him and my dad (Hall of Famer Roy Cooper) for who was going to become the first $2 million cowboy.” Roy won that, and Tuf surpassed the $1 million milestone by winning the third round of the tie-down roping in San Angelo, worth $2,981, and, ironically, the first check he has won at that rodeo. “I did the math a couple of years ago,” Tuf said, “and figured out that I had a chance to break Ty’s record in the winter of 2013 if I kept doing the job. I turned out to be pretty much on the money. I guess I stayed the course all right.”

KUDOS! “I just read the article ‘Extension at all Gaits’ in the February Journal. It’s the most promising thing I have ever read in regards to western pleasure. As an exhibitor, I am excited for the changes in judging the discipline, and it was nice to know that all the negative aspects were getting noticed.” Charlotte Creek Stables of Davenport Center, New York, posted this comment on AQHA’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/aqha1).

PERFORMANCE HALTER REVIEW As you hit the show road again, please review the performance halter qualifying rules. Briefly, horses are required to earn 10 performance points during the respective 2013 world show qualifying period in order to earn an invitation to compete in performance halter at that world show. Performance points must be earned in addition to the requisite performance halter points. For specific rules regarding which divisions performance points must be earned in, read more at www.aqha.com/performancehalter.


Oklahoma City Leading Owner

Kevin McCary’s halter horses earned him one last AQHA World Show award.

Dan E. Fox, left, and AQHA Professional Horseman Jack Brizendine accept the 2012 Reserve Leading Owner award.

With less than 200 days before the start of the 2013 AQHA World Championship Show, we thought we’d take a look back at a memorable moment from the 2012 show: the awarding of the 2012 Oklahoma City Leading Owner award: “We had a very good World Show,” said Kevin McCary of Mansfield, Texas. He just didn’t know quite how good until he learned that he had been named the 2012 Oklahoma City Leading Owner, an award given to the owner who earns the most points at the AQHA World Championship Show. To be eligible for the award, at least three horses must be entered and shown under the same ownership. Kevin had six horses qualified and earned 75 points competing in six classes during Bank of America Amateur Week and six classes during Open Week. His horses earned world championship titles in weanling mares, 3-year-old mares and aged mares; and reserve world championship titles in amateur weanling mares, amateur 3-year-old mares and amateur aged mares. Other McCary horses placed third in yearling stallions, third in amateur yearling stallions and ninth in amateur 3-year-old geldings. “We were very surprised that we earned this award. We didn’t even know that we were in the hunt,” Kevin said. “It was just a little extra something there at the end of the show.” Kevin and his wife, Shirley, who is the amateur exhibitor in the family, were first introduced to the halter industry just four years ago by Kevin’s business partner, David Williams, and his wife, Kathy. Three years ago, the McCarys bought their first halter horse, a weanling gelding that netted them a world championship. “So we’ve been coming here three years, and it has been exciting,” Kevin said. “It’s a new passion.” He credits their trainer, AQHA Professional Horseman Luke Castle of Wayne, Oklahoma, as well as the Williamses for introducing them to this world. Still smiling after receiving a Leading Owner prize package that included a specially commissioned bronze and a rose bouquet, Kevin said, “This keeps us encouraged, and again, we’ve met a lot of nice people, a lot of other trainers. It’s an extended family is what it is, and we really enjoy this.” So, as a relative newcomer to the industry, what advice might Kevin give others looking for an entrance? “If you’re passionate about it, find you a good trainer, get you some horses and keep coming at ’em,” he said. “If you keep coming, there’s an opportunity for people to win.” Dan E. Fox of Chino, California, was named the 2012 Reserve Leading Owner. Dan qualified eight horses, earning a total of 71 points competing in six classes during Bank of America Amateur Week and eight classes during Open Week. Dan won world championships in amateur performance halter stallions and performance halter stallions, in addition to the reserve world champion title in amateur performance halter mares. His horses also placed third in weanling mares, third in performance halter mares, fifth in amateur 3-year-old mares, fifth in amateur weanling mares, sixth in amateur aged mares, seventh in aged mares, ninth in weanling geldings, ninth in amateur weanling geldings and 10th in amateur weanling stallions, as well as two finalists in 3-year-old mares. The Reserve Leading Owner received a silver cup, presented by The American Quarter Horse Journal. BY HOLLY CLANAHAN THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL A P R I L 2 0 1 3

Whoever said long-distance relationships are tough hit the nail right on the head. At least with human-to-human connections, you have the great inventions of phone calls, online video chatting and various forms of social media. Horse owners aren’t that lucky. One of my sweet mares, Blues Nu Boon, made the journey back to Washington State a few weeks ago. In the interim, I’ve been missing “Bunny” something bad. Who knew that I’d yearn for her morning routine of gnashing teeth and pinning ears? Granted, it wasn’t aimed at me – my other mare, Lenas Fillynic or “Nikki,” received those unwarranted ghastly stares. No, all I got were precious come-hither-with-that-Safechoice looks. Now my sassy Bunny is 1,826 miles away. And while I’m certain she’s running, free as a bird, through my parents’ green – albeit muddy – pastures in Snohomish, Washington, I can’t help but pine for the pony I have lost. I know I should console myself with the thought that my parents now share the joy of Bunny’s daily antics and that our gelding, TC Lena, has rekindled his old flame with my gray mare. I try to remind myself of the cherry on top of the sundae – Bunny’s got a date with some frozen semen and, fingers crossed, a 2014 foal on the way. But none of this really softens the blow that I no longer get Bunny’s warm alfalfa-laced breath in my ear on a cold Texas Panhandle evening, nor am I able to enjoy her quick cow sense and smooth little sashay of a jog. (No offense, Nikki, but your trot is nothing short of teeth-jarring.) Don’t think that I’m selling Nikki short in this deal – I’m not. You see, my mares are like ying and yang – quite similar in some respects, but polar opposites in others. Together, they made our horsey family whole. There is a silver lining to this cloud of missing Bunny, though. This is what gets me through each day: While Bunny journeyed back to the homeland, I luckily received a gift in her stead. Soula Boon, aka “Jules,” is Bunny in miniature – seriously. As Bunny’s first born, 4-year-old Jules is a bit more like Bunny than I initially gave her credit for. Thankfully, all that I learned from training and showing Bunny is easily applied to her “Mini Me”; a fact I’m sure will save both me and Jules a lot of headache. Each day I ride Jules, peeling back the layers of sassiness, I rediscover again and again her similarities to her dam. I had an epiphany – it healed my broken heart and dried my teary eyes. All I had to do was remember our logic behind breeding Bunny: When she’s gone, her legacy will live on. Although I can’t dial up Bunny’s cell phone number, send her a personal Facebook message or call her up on Skype, I do have a direct line to her DNA on a daily basis. I thank God for Jules, also known as Bunny 2.0.

WORTH REPEATING “Every person in the world – what is most important is that we want to be cared about. We aspire to work ethic, integrity, courage, the desire to excel. That’s a cowboy. I don’t think we should lose that. A culture needs to identify with its history, because it plays a role in us and where we are going together. And if it’s the West that inspires us, so be it.”

AQHA Professional Horseman Ed Dufurrena of Gainesville, Texas, quoted in Texas Monthly magazine in February, talking about horse competition and maintaining the values of the West. Ed’s common-sense approach to cutting and training was featured in the November and December 2012 Journals.


LEVEL WITH ME

J I M J EN N I N GS

The new AQHA leveling program hit the ground running January 1, 2013. The Journal will feature questions answered monthly by AQHA Executive Director of Shows Patti Carter-Pratt. To submit a question, write to Patti at pcpratt@aqha.org. Q. Under the leveling program, exhibitors can now earn up to 40 points in showmanship before they move out of Novice. Under the old system, exhibitors moved out of Novice after they earned 25 points in a class. With the new leveling system, is the old Novice system completely gone? If it is not completely gone, then can a Novice amateur only show Novice at shows that offer leveling? A. Any time a show offers a Novice class they are leveling; even the old show system was “leveled” when Novice classes were offered. The main changes to the system were how the levels, such as Novice, are figured; we also added a midlevel, known as Intermediate/Progressive. As you noted, the 2013 level point cap for Novice amateur showmanship is 40 points. If a competitor has not earned more than 40 points, the competitor may show in Novice, as long as he or she is eligible under Rule SHW245 in the AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations. Novice exhibitors also have the ability to show up in the Intermediate and Open levels, if those levels are offered. Learn more about the leveling program and find your level at www.aqha.com/leveling.

AQHA Shows Most AQHA shows offer a variety of classes (English, Halter, Western) and divisions (youth, amateur, open) for competitors of different skill levels. Some shows may offer novice classes for the youth and amateur divisions and some offer the special Select classes for amateur exhibitors who are 50 years of age and older. Below are additional show formats which various show managements offer to meet exhibitors’ needs. Double Judged/Double Point (**DJ/DP*) Want to earn points fast? Then a double judged/double point show might just be the ticket for you. This format features one show with two judges, meaning that your top placings could earn two sets of points without having to exhibit twice. Double judged/double point shows are primarily found at major livestock shows where there are a large number of exhibitors. The majority of exhibitors who attend these shows are highly competitive, so expect top-quality exhibitors and American Quarter Horses. Expect to pay two entry fees. Split/Combined (**S/C**) Another efficient way for exhibitors to rack up more points is to attend a split/combined show. Any two consecutive shows (like a Saturday and Sunday show) can be combined into one show and split over two days. There are two judges and two sets of points and the class is held only once - a real bonus for exhibitors who are trying to qualify for the World Shows or earn year-end awards. Expect to pay two entry fees. Special Events (**SpEv**) Want to meet more people who show in the same event as you? A special event just might be the ticket. Special events – as the name implies – may feature two single events like team penning and cutting, barrel racing and

Class Codes

AQHA is currently in the process of updating computer systems which entails class codes being adjusted for the new system and to accommodate the new leveling classes. The codes shown here are the new class offerings and codes which include the leveling classes being offered as of January 2013. The following monthly show calendar will list the current (old) class code for classes, excluding leveling classes. We will have a short period of time when the new codes are not available on the show calendar; however, the base code remains the same. For example – if you are looking for Jr Tie-Down Roping. The old code is 181, the new code is 118100 – the first digit “1” indicates Open division and the last two digits “00” indicates an all age class. Another example – Youth Cutting, old code is 140; new code is 414000 – first digit “4” indicates Youth division. Please see the key below. We apologize for the inconvenience and trust you will contact AQHA with any questions regarding classes being offered at any particular show. 1 Open; 2 Amateur; 4 Youth. Last two digits of code: 00 all ages (not a leveling class – traditional class); 01 Rookie; 02 Novice; 03 Intermediate; 04 Green; 05 Progressive; 06 Open.

pole bending or roping events like team roping and calf roping. The serious and the casual competitors attend these special events. A single set of points is awarded at each special event. Livestock Shows & Fairs Some of the largest AQHA shows are held during livestock shows and fairs. These collective events, which feature shows for other livestock, offer all levels of competition including youth classes. The number of entries may be high, and you can find seasoned and casual exhibitors. All-Novice Shows (**All Nov**) Have some fun showing while getting your feet wet at all-novice shows. These events are specially designed for exhibitors who have not yet earned the maximum amount of points allotted per skill set, which means that you’ll compete with people of similar skill levels. An instructional clinic/seminar must be held in conjunction with the show. All-novice shows can be managed by anyone, and are usually held as stand-alone events. Alliance Shows (**AL EV**) You can earn AQHA points by competing at shows hosted by AQHA Alliance members - National Cutting Horse Association, National Reining Horse Association, National Reined Cow Horse Association and National Snaffle Bit Association. Approved events award points based on the AQHA system to those exhibitors who like to show in both organizations. You can expect all levels of competitors. AQHA rules are applicable, and exhibitors must meet AQHA ownership and eligibility requirements.

riding, ranch trail, ranch cutting, working ranch horse and ranch conformation. To be eligible for points in the Versatility Ranch competition one rider/one horse must enter all five classes. Credits will be applied per class according to the placing received based on the number of horses competing in that particular class. AQHA points are awarded based on the total earned credits from each class that determine the final placing. There is an open division for horses shown by the recorded owner or by immediate family members or shown by a full-time employee (six months or more). A Youth division also is offered to exhibitors 18 or younger (age as of January 1) as long as they are the recorded owner or exhibit a horse owned by their immediate family members. Youth exhibitors may show horses owned by a ranch where the exhibitor’s family is a full-time employee (for six months or more). The Versatility Ranch Horse competition promotes the athletic ability and versatility of the horse. AQHA Equestrians with Disabilities The Equestrians with Disabilities is for those who wish to compete regardless of their physical or mental abilities. The competition consists of three classes:­walk and trot hunt seat equitation on the flat, walk and jog western horsemanship, and walk and jog trail. The classes can be held at AQHA-approved shows or can be stand-alone competitions. An Equestrian Proficiency Card from the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) and/or a special adaptive equipment and riding ability form can help exhibitors when entering these events since the card provides show managers information about their abilities.

LAST LOOK at the

High-Point Tidbit COURTESY OF COLL E E N M IL L E R

Sixty years ago, there were only six AQHA open high-point award winners recognized (see them on Page 44). AQHA didn’t begin recognizing youth high-point exhibitors until 1966 or amateur high-point exhibitors until after the Association established the amateur division in the late 1970s.

SILKY SOCKS We’re always happy to hear from our readers. Often, an article takes on a whole new meaning for them. That happened in December when Journal Editor Larri Jo Starkey wrote about how rules are made for AQHA. She included a photo of the first amateur world champion in hunter under saddle, Jan Thompson and her horse Silky Socks. In January, Larri Jo received a fat package in the mail from Colleen Miller of DeWitt, Michigan. Colleen hand-wrote a long letter on a yellow legal pad about Silky Socks and stuffed the envelope with some old magazine clippings of “Silky” jumping and winning. Colleen, who rehabbed Silky from some difficult behaviors, was thrilled to see the picture of the gelding in the Journal. Larri Jo called Colleen to let her know she received the package, and they started chatting. About an hour later, Larri Jo got off the phone and started writing. Turn to Page 38 to read more about Silky Socks, a challenging horse who wasn’t really a model citizen. Thanks to Colleen, Jan and Jan’s daughter, Lindy, though, he was a champion who by retirement had learned to take life just a little easier.
