NRCHA STAFF

DEAR NRCHA MEMBERS, It is hard to believe we are already at the mid-point of 2015. The first two quarters of the year brought continued success and growth to the association. We have two robust Premier Events behind us – the Celebration of Champions/ World’s Greatest Horseman in Fort Worth, and the NRCHA Stallion Stakes in Las Vegas. This issue of Reined Cow Horse News is timed to coincide with the NRCHA Derby in Paso Robles. I am proud of the way our NRCHA team has performed thus far in 2015. We continue to become a more cohesive group, and the value of our event production grows by leaps and bounds. I have noticed other equine associations attempting to meet the high standard we have set with our video wrap-up show coverage this year, which calls to mind the old saying, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” We welcomed Smart Boons as a sponsor of our video wrap-ups at the first of the year, and the people behind this exceptional American Quarter Horse stallion, Eric and Wendy Dunn, have become wonderfully enthusiastic NRCHA supporters. Eric’s excitement

about our sport is nothing short of contagious, and we look forward to a productive relationship with him and his family’s Hooray Ranch going forward. The heart of the NRCHA shined brighter than ever this spring, following the news that Idaho horsewoman Jackie Roeser was battling cancer – a fight she ultimately lost in April. Jackie’s husband, Dan, is one of the strongest cornerstones of our association, as is Dan’s brother, Jon. The Roesers’ cow horse family responded with an outpouring of generosity, participating in a spontaneous fund raiser at the NRCHA Stakes to help offset medical costs. Looking ahead to the rest of the year, we are thrilled about the National High School Rodeo Finals in July, with reined cow horse in the event lineup for the first time. This could potentially be the biggest youth cow horse class in NRCHA history, with 100-120 contestants expected to take part. I appreciate everyone who makes our association great. Let’s make the second half of 2015 even better than the first. All the best! Jay Winborn

///////// FROM THE NRCHA PRESIDENT

Q&A with THE NRCHA PRESIDENT incentive program offers a lot of value, and I would encourage breeders to take a close look at the program and enroll their stallions, if they haven’t already. All the information you need is right here in every issue of the Reined Cow Horse News.

RCHN: We are already looking ahead to the fall, and another major focus right now is getting those horses ready for the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales. What’s special about that marketplace as a source for great cow horses? TB: The Futurity Sales have developed such a solid reputation, and it is well-deserved. We have seen so many champions come through that sale ring in Reno. The Open Futurity Champions in 2012 and 2013 were both

sale alumni. I can personally attest to the caliber of horses sold there. I helped Cable Creek Ranch purchase Smart Luck through the Select 2-YearOld Sale in 2008. He’s gone on to be an exceptional performer and is also just starting his career as a sire. Parnell Dickinson, the sale management company, is constantly looking for ways to make it a better experience for buyers and consignors. We changed up the schedule last year, which was very well-received. The horse market is strong and improving right now, the Sale Incentives are a great reason to buy a 2-year-old and bring it back next year to show at the Futurity, and there is a big group of buyers right there in Reno every year. Whether you are buying or selling, it is definitely a worthwhile venue.

/////////ABOUT TODD BERGEN JEREMY HEID

Reined Cow Horse News: Let’s talk about the NRCHA Stakes, which has now been in Las Vegas for three years. What are some of your thoughts following the 2015 edition of the show? Todd Bergen: The South Point Equestrian Center is such a first-class facility. It’s easy to put on an event in a place like that, with amenities that make it enjoyable for everyone, whether you’re showing or just there to watch. It was also a lot of fun to add the Smart Boons Fence Challenge to the Stakes this year. Everyone loves the fence work, and this was a great, spectator-friendly event. The added drama of the four-way tie and the work-off made it even more of a crowd pleaser. We want to extend a huge thanks to Eric and Wendy Dunn, owners of Smart Boons, for sponsoring the Fence Challenge. Eric is a great person to have on board with the NRCHA. He has lots of energy and great ideas, and we look forward to working with him in the future. The Stakes itself, along with the NRCHA Subscribed Stallion Program, has a significant purpose, which is to promote horses specifically being bred to do the reined cow horse. It is very important for us to showcase those horses at one event, and really promote those stallions that keep our cow horse program strong. The Stakes

N

ational Reined Cow Horse Association President Todd Bergen, Eagle Point, Oregon, has a history of service on the NRCHA Board of Directors. In his highly decorated show career, he has captured nearly every major accolade in both the reined cow horse and the reining arenas. He is a two-time NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion and is on the brink of achieving Two Million Dollar Rider status. He will be only the second person in NRCHA history to reach that milestone; the first is Bergen’s predecessor in the NRCHA President’s office, Todd Crawford. Our NRCHA President welcomes your feedback! He can be reached via email at toddbergen@hughes.net.

REINED COW HORSE AT NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL RODEO FINALS RAMONA WOLD

Youth riders participated in a November National High School Rodeo cow horse clinic and show in Red Bluff, California. Reined cow horse will be one of the events at the 2015 National High School Rodeo Finals in July.

T

he Sweetwater Events Complex in Rock Springs, Wyoming, will host more than 1,500 contestants from 41 U.S. states and five provinces in Canada and Australia for the National

High School Rodeo Finals, July 12-18. The National High School Rodeo Finals is the largest rodeo in the world, with 13 performances over seven days. For the first time, reined cow horse will be included in the event lineup. The National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA) added reined cow horse last

year, and has been working in partnership with the NRCHA to implement the event at the regional and national levels. The National High School Rodeo Finals cow horse could potentially be the largest youth reined cow horse class in the sport’s history, with 100 - 120 contestants expected to run for the National Championship. A webcast of the National High School Rodeo Finals can be found at NHSRATV. com. For more information, support and resource materials to assist in implementing reined cow horse classes at National High School Rodeo Association events, visit the NRCHA’s website at www. nrcha.com/nhsra-reined-cowhorse/.

QUOTABLE “I’m not going to say he’s the best horse there ever was, but he’s the best horse I ever rode. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to ride another horse like him. He’s not just a horse to me. He’s more like family to me. There are people who go their whole lifetime and never have a horse like him.” —NRCHA Professional Kelby Phillips, describing Hickory Holly Time (One Time Pepto x Hickorys Holly Cee x Doc’s Hickory), the 2010 stallion he trained and showed to the 2014 NRCHA Derby Open Championship. “Oliver” is owned by Garth and Amanda Gardiner, Ashland, Kansas.

AQHA RANCHING HERITAGE CHALLENGE RETURNS TO THE SNAFFLE BIT FUTURITY

The NRCHA and AQHA teamed up in 2014 to offer the first Ranching Heritage Challenge at the Snaffle Bit Futurity. The 4-Year-Old Ranching Heritage Challenge Open Champion was Royal Smart Fletch (Royal Fletch x Little Smart Ginger x Smart Little Lena), shown by NRCHA Million Dollar Rider Boyd Rice. Royal Smart Fletch is bred and owned by Kit and Charlie Moncrief. He scored total 217 on the three events – reining, cow work and roping. The championship came with a check for $2,800.

A

fter a successful debut in 2014, the National Reined Cow Horse Association is teaming up with its alliance partner, the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), to produce another Ranching Heritage Challenge at the 2015 Snaffle Bit Futurity in Reno, Nevada. The event, which offers Working Ranch Horse, Boxing and Ranch Horse Pleasure classes, will be held Sept. 26 at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center. There are Open and Non Pro divisions, and the 2014 event had an impressive $15,000 added. To be eligible for the Ranching Heritage Challenge, a horse must have been foaled at an AQHA Ranching

Heritage Breeder’s ranch and nominated by that ranch. The AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenge highlights the versatility, soundness, and willing attitude of American Quarter Horses that are ranch-born and -raised. The AQHA, with sponsor support from Zoetis, produces a series of Ranching Heritage Challenge events intended to grow demand for ranch horses by providing an opportunity for ranches and owners to compete in a unique competition for a significant purse. As interest in the program increases, the AQHA anticipates having six regional events around the United States, each with a purse in excess of

$100,000. The Ranching Heritage Challenge is linked to the AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders program, established to recognize AQHA’s ranching members who have steadfastly continued to maintain the ranching tradition by raising American Quarter Horses for use in working cattle. Wagonhound Land & Livestock, an NRCHA Breeder Sponsor, is also an AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder. NRCHA breeders – you may be eligible for the AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders program, too!

WARD RANCH RAFFLE FILLY

The 2014 raffle filly winner, Christina Ceresa, Willits, California, was thrilled to be named the new owner of Cute Little Pepinic. This year’s raffle filly is So Cute, a full sister to Cute Little Pepinic.

T

he 2015 National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity Raffle Filly has been revealed, and she could be yours for just $10, the price of a raffle ticket. This fall, one lucky winner will take home So Cute (Smart Little Pepinic x Mister Im Cute x Mister Dual Pep), a 2013 mare and a full sibling to the past two years’ raffle fillies, Cute Pepinic and Cute Little Pepinic. The raffle filly is donated annually by NRCHA Breeder Sponsor Ward Ranch. Like all Ward Ranch raffle horses, So Cute comes with a paid entry to the 2016 Snaffle Bit Futurity in the new owner’s choice of the Open, Non Pro or Amateur divisions. She will also be well-started under saddle.

There is no limit to the number of raffle filly tickets per buyer. Tickets can be purchased through the NRCHA office by calling 940-488-1500. The winning ticket will be drawn Oct. 3 during the Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Finals in Reno. Ticket buyers do not need to be present to win. The Ward Ranch has contributed a total of 29 royally bred 2-year-old raffle candidates from its historic reined cow horse breeding program. Built in 1972 by the late Greg Ward, a member of the NRCHA Hall of Fame, Ward Ranch has raised numerous champions, many of them descended from the famous mare, Fillinic. All of the money from raffle ticket sales goes to support the NRCHA

Futurity. Half of the proceeds are put into the NRCHA 2-Year-Old Select Sale Incentive Purse, a program which pays the highest-scoring Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale horses at the following year’s Futurity. Several Ward Ranch Raffle alumni have returned to Reno as 3-year-olds to claim their own Futurity paychecks. The most successful was Gypsy Reminic (Reminic x Tontos Gypsy Bar x Tonto Bars Folly), the 1988 raffle filly. She became the 1989 Futurity Open Reserve Champion with Ted Robinson aboard. Gypsy Reminic has $37,406 in cow horse money. She also went on to produce 10 performing foals that have earned nearly $75,000 in cutting, cow horse and reining.

OBITUARY: JACKIE ROESER

J

acklin Marie Roeser, 60, Marsing, Idaho, passed away April 14 after a brief battle with cancer. She was an accomplished barrel horse trainer and competitor with close ties to the National Reined Cow Horse Association. Jackie, the daughter of Elmer and Ruth Ellen Parke, was born Feb. 5, 1955, in Gooding, Idaho. Jackie and her younger brother, Walter, grew up on the family farm in Gooding. Jackie’s love for horses was evident at an early age. As a child, she showed horses in 4-H and American Quarter Horse Association breed shows and competed in high school rodeo. After high school, she attended the University of Idaho (UI) and Eastern Oregon University (EOU), where she graduated with a degree in education. While in college, Jackie was a member of the UI gymnastics team, but decided to devote her energy to rodeo.

She was president of the EOU rodeo team and qualified for the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Finals in 1976 in goat tying. Her time spent rodeoing in college, and the friends she made while competing on the rodeo team, would always be some of her most cherished memories. After college, Jackie moved to Filer, Idaho, where she began her teaching career. During that time, she began dating her brother’s friend and team-roping partner, Dan Roeser. Dan and Jackie were married on June 5, 1979. Settling in Caldwell, they spent the early years of their marriage training horses and rodeoing together all over the Northwest. While competing in barrel racing and goat tying, Jackie won numerous year-end individual and all-around titles in the Idaho Cowboys Association and the Eastern Idaho Rodeo Association. During her 20-year teaching career, Jackie taught reading, speech, and English to students ranging from fourth grade through college. Jackie and Dan’s daughter, Annie, was born July 5, 1984. Shortly after, Dan shifted his training program to reined cow horses and Jackie focused on barrel horses. In 1987, the Roesers bought property in Marsing, Idaho. Over the next 28 years, with every fence built, pasture or tree planted, and weed pulled, Jackie would build one of her greatest masterpieces: Roeser Ranch. The beautiful house and barns there today are a result of Jackie’s flair for color and meticulous eye for detail. Jackie trained 22 barrel racing futurity and derby champions; several went on to win at the amateur and pro rodeo

levels. She qualified for the both the Wilderness and Columbia River Circuit Finals during her career and helped countless individuals with their own horses. She took great pride in the horse she trained and all of the riders that would go on to win on them. Some of Jackie’s favorite and most accomplished horses include Hula Rap, Azure Bid, Fantastic Rocket, Sovereign Judgment, Circles Top Illusion, Miss Might Flight, Jimmy Some Sugar, and CT Tres (a daughter of Circles Top Illusion). Over the years, as Jackie and Dan built their business and welcomed customers from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, they also expanded their circle of friends. Jackie’s warm and infectious sense of family quickly “adopted” each person who visited or worked at Roeser Ranch. Jackie often said, “Our lifestyle of training and showing horses has not always been easy, but it has been rewarding. We have built our business ourselves, we have been our own boss, and we have been rewarded by the true friends we have made along the way.” Jackie is survived by her husband, Dan; daughter, Annie (Elissa); nephews Justin, Jared, and Jett; as well as numerous Parke and Roeser family brothersand sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Elmer; her mother, Ruth Ellen; and her brother, Walter.

t was over the fence instead of down the fence for NRCHA Professional Brandon Buttars, who, with his Swiss show jumping partner Steve Guerdat, won the discipline-swapping “Duel In The Desert” April 18 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. The event was held in conjunction with the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) World Cup Finals. The riders traded horses and tackled each others’ events, with the cow horse trainers going over a jumping course and the jumpers working a cow down the fence in front of a packed house in the Thomas and Mack. Buttars and Guerdat competed

against two other teams: NRCHA Million Dollar Rider Zane Davis and show jumper Tanya Levorchick; and NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion Tucker Robinson and show jumper Lucy Davis. “It was an opportunity I’ll probably never get in my life again. It was unreal,” Buttars said. This was not the first time the Snowville, Utah, horseman swung a leg over an English saddle. He and Davis were both racehorse jockeys in years past, and Buttars said neither of them liked the experience. “Zane called me and asked if I wanted to ride my flat saddle again. I said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Well, this time it’s on a jumper,’ and I said ‘Yes!’ I’ve

always wanted to ride a jumper, and never had the opportunity,” Buttars said. He and Guerdat coached each other a little before the event. The Swiss show jumper shared some wisdom that Buttars said helped him clinch the championship. “I told Steve I wanted to win this, and I needed some advice. He told me, ‘You’ll win if you go fast.’ I went fast, and I guess it worked. I’ve never been known to go slow!” Buttars said with a laugh. Guerdat’s prior exposure to reined cow horse consisted of watching a YouTube video that Tucker Robinson’s wife, Tina, played for him on her smartphone. He enjoyed his turn aboard champion cow horse Lenas Buddy Nic (PT) (Nic It In The Bud x Dual Lena [PT] x Lethal Lena). “I like it! Honestly, the horses are amazing. It’s very different – the way the horses react. I really enjoyed it. I am ready to do it again,” Guerdat said. Both riders intend to stick with their chosen discipline, although Buttars admits, “I would dang sure jump again. I thought it was a blast. I don’t know if I could get in the tights and the helmet, but I could be a jumper. I probably don’t have very good form, but that’s okay,” he added with a smile.

With a double-digit victory, Blind Sided and Jay McLaughlin won the NRCHA Stakes. By Jennifer K. Hancock Photos by Primo Morales

Almost perfect” is how Jay McLaughlin described Blind Sided’s fence work in the Open Finals at the National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA)’s Stallion Stakes in Las Vegas. Adding the 227.5 fence work score to the red roan stallion’s 220 in the herd work and 220.5 in the rein work, Blind Sided (Peptoboonsmal x Lil Miss Shiney Chex x Shining Spark) earned a composite score of 668 to give his owners, Aaron Ranch, the winner’s purse of $31,047.26. The April 4 finals wrapped up the NRCHA Stallion Stakes, which began March 29. McLaughlin has trained the stallion from the start, and the duo led the preliminaries at the 2013 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open and took Reserve Championship honors in the Finals. Last year, Blind Sided’s connections set their sights on the future and only showed him at the major events. “He ended up winning about $30,000 last year as a 4-year-old,” McLaughlin said. “He was trying to compete with the 5-year-olds and hanging out there. This year he came out with a bang. He showed awesomely. We ended up winning the year-end last year in the Hackamore. He’s just an all-around good horse.” After finishing third at the 2014 NRCHA Derby, McLaughlin sensed a change in the horse’s maturity level. “When we came out of the Derby, I don’t know what it was, but he just felt all of the sudden like he was a grown up,” McLaughlin explains. “I cruised him through the go-rounds in Vegas, and he made the finals. He was awesome in the herd on Friday night – he was unbelievable and had the high score in the herd. He tied to be the highest score in the rein work the next morning.” The pair were sixth to work in the finals in the fence work, and with so

many horses left to work, McLaughlin didn’t want to be conservative. “There were three bunches yet to go, and you can’t really cruise down the fence, you have to go,” McLaughlin said. “I went in, wiped my hands off on my chaps, and we went down the fence. There’s not a cow that can outrun him.

He was almost as perfect as you can be down the fence. I’ve marked a lot of 227s and 228s in my life, but to be honest with you, it felt pretty close to a 230. It was pretty awesome.” The champions were more than 10 points ahead of Reserve Champions Hickory Holly Time (One Time Pepto x REINED COW HORSE NEWS | MAY/JUNE 2015

I was glad he was on the money that night. We drew the right cow, and everything fell into place.” McLaughlin describes Blind Sided as “very, very pleasant to train” and says he’s always willing to get along. “I don’t think that I’ve ever had a bad day on him,” McLaughlin said. “He’ll give you everything that he’s got – sometimes he will give you a little more than what you ask. I don’t think that I’ve ever ridden him twice in a day except for finals days. He’s just one of those kinds of horses that you work him and he retains everything you show him.”

Winning the title for Aaron Ranch, Commerce, Texas, was an added bonus. “The Aarons are good people, and they sure support the reined cow horse just as much as I do,” McLaughlin said. “I love the reined cow horse. It’s just a big family. It’s us against the cows. It was a big honor to have all those guys in the finals to tell me congratulations.”

REBOUND FOR THE WIN Justin Wright and Eric M. Freitas’ Im Countin Chics (Im Countin Checks x Dixie Chic Please x Chic Please) proved that you can’t keep a good horse down in the Intermediate Open. “He was really good in the prelims,” Wright said. “In the fence work for the prelims, he fell down. He stood back up and finished the run. I was lucky enough to make the intermediate finals.”

“big hearts and lots of guts” is what makes Peptoboonsmal’s offspring successful. “They are really strong horses,” McLaughlin said after his latest victory. McLaughlin described Blind Sided as “not a real big horse, but he rides really big.” Ranked fourth on the NRCHA sires list for foal earnings from 1998 to 2013, Peptoboonsmal’s offspring have earned more than $1.5 million in reined cow horse competitions.

His composite score of 650.5 earned him the winner’s purse of $6,642.99. “He’s a really neat little gelding,” Wright said. “He’s kind of a laidback dude. He’s pretty easy going.” Wright says the 4-year-old gelding has a big stop and is starting to mature into his talent. “I showed him at the Futurity last year, and he was a little bit green,” Wright said. “But this year, it seems like he’s catching up to where he needs to be. He was terrific in the finals. He was real easy to show. “I drew up late in the herd on him, and he just wanted to be real good,” Wright added. “He’s got a good stop. He wants to be real cool out of the herd. He’s real bendy and neat out of the herd. He was just always green everywhere just a little bit, but he’s starting to figure it out. He’s been steady. He’s a fun little horse.”

DOUBLE DUTY Jayson “J.J.” Fisher knows what it feels like to win at the NRCHA Stakes from both sides of the fence. He was on the edge of his seat watching Russell Probert ride Justa Doin It (Smart Little Pepinic x Justa Hot Chic x Just Plain Colonel) to the Limited Open title, and he was in the saddle for the victory in the Non Pro. Fisher owns the 4-year-old stallion with his wife, Teresa. Fisher enjoys training his own horses, but with his construction company booming, he brought Probert on board at the beginning of 2015. “I’ve always trained my own horses and with work this year, I just haven’t had the time,” Fisher said. When asked which is more difficult watching a winning run or riding it, he answers with a laugh – watching.

///////// NRCHA STAKES “It’s a little bit difficult I must say, just because I want to be the one out there pulling them around and riding them,” Fisher said. “I enjoy that part – the training – so much. It’s a little hard to step away, but we’ve been so busy at work that I had to. “I’m actually really proud of Russell,” Fisher added. “He’s got limited show experience – I could probably count on one hand how many times he has shown. He is an excellent trainer. I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s only been with me for four months, and he’s already made a big difference. I’m pretty excited to see what the future holds for us.” Probert and Justa Doin It might have advanced into the finals of another division if the cow they were working down the fence in the prelims hadn’t fallen down. “It really took away from the run,” Fisher said. “He was lining up to be big, and the cow just kind of fell down. He barely missed the Intermediate Finals, and he was only six points out of the Open. He could have very easily done that on that run.” Doing double duty, Justa Doin It marked a 213.5 in the herd work, a 213.5 in the rein work and a 218 in the fence work for a total of 645 in the Limited Open with Probert. He picked up the winner’s check of $5,220.88. “That gives us a lot of hope,” Fisher said. “He’s the type of horse that can go out and compete at the top of the Open division as well. It’s not always the best horse that wins, and I say that at every show. There are so many factors and two events with cows that can dictate the outcome. When everything lines up, you still have to make sure you have a horse that is broke and ready to handle every situation. That’s what makes the cow horse the top of the line for me. This is the start of my 11th year and when we

started, I could have gone into cutting or reining, but I thought this is the best of all of it. If you are good at the cow horse, I just feel like you can be successful in any of those because it dabbles in everything.

The broke horses usually rise to the top just like the cream rises to the top.” Fisher describes Justa Doin It as “pretty casual.” He purchased the horse in August before the Snaffle Bit Futurity.

///////// NRCHA STAKES “He’s kind of a laid-back horse and will do just about anything that you ask him to do,” Fisher said. “We went to Reno and didn’t have the best of luck. We just went home and have been practicing and waited for the Stakes and here we are.” Fisher entered the herd as the 15th draw out of 16 to work, so he relied heavily on his herd help. “In the prelims, I had a pretty bad draw,” Fisher said. “They still got me some fresh cows and it worked out pretty good. Being late, I was happy with what the outcome was. I had a hot quit in the prelims. They reviewed it because it was so close, but they got me for it. I went from a 215.5 down to a 206. It actually made me almost not make it back.” Fisher made it back to the finals tied for the last spot. “It kept us on the edge of our seats,” he said of waiting for the results. “I actually thought that I wasn’t going to make it watching all the way to the end. I knew he was a good horse, and I was the one that messed up. “In the rein work, he was solid in both the finals and the prelims,” Fisher added. “Russell had him tuned up really well. The one area that we’ve been working on the most with this horse is down the fence. He was a little disconnected when we got him. He wasn’t matured yet, and now he’s starting to figure out exactly what we’re wanting. He just keeps getting better and better.” In the finals, Fisher and Justa Doin It marked a 211.5 in the herd work, a 212 in the rein work and a 221 fence work. Their total of 644.5 earned them a payday of $7,716.10. “He was spectacular down the fence,” Fisher said. “He’s figured that part out really well. That was my whole thing with this horse to begin with. I knew that it was there. He’s so broke and Russell has done a good job of finishing him and connecting all the dots. I think now that

the horse is maturing, it’s all lining up. He’s just such a pleasure to ride, too. He makes you look forward to going out and riding him. I knew that horse was in there, I just had to get him shown.” The Fisher family fared well in Vegas. In addition to Just Doin It’s success, J.J.’s son Wyatt was the Amateur Reserve Champion aboard Kellis Shady Lady (Shady Lil Starlight x Kellis Lil Freckle x Lena My Way). “It’s part of everything that we do at the Fisher household,” Fisher said. “We love doing it and it’s a blast. We are cow horse people through and through.”

ROWDY AND CONSISTENT In the Level 1 Limited Open, Jason Gay’s game plan for Remedys Shinin Cash (Very Smart Remedy x Cashs Shining Spark x Shining Spark) focused on consistency, and they didn’t let a bobble in the fence work slow them down. “Going into it, I just wanted to be consistent and have a good run in each

event,” Gay said. “I knew that would get me to the Limited finals. I just missed the Intermediate finals by a point and a half. She was good in the reining – she felt good and stopped good for me. She was good in the circles even though she’s a little bit limited turner. I felt like she turned good for me there in the prelims. The next day was the herd work, and she was trying to be good, I felt. That’s where I’m a little limited, but she was good there. Down the fence we marked a [2]17, and I felt confident going into that because I knew that she’s a really good fence horse. “In the first turn, we got real tight with that cow, and we kind of bumped,” Gay added. “I thought I was going to come out of the buggy there for a second. That cow stumbled and she stumbled a little bit and we kind of hit feet, but we recovered and had a good fence run. It felt really good. I was really happy with it.” Owned by Julie Strenge, the 4-yearold mare, who is known at the barn

OPEN ENROLLMENT Corey Cushing had a dilemma about 10 days prior to the NRCHA Stakes. He received a phone call informing him that High Brow Cat, the sire of Smart Crackin Cat, was not enrolled in the program thus making the 4-year-old mare ineligible unless the stallion was enrolled. In stepped Darren Blanton, who owns High Brow Cat. The stallion was paid up, and Cushing could focus on the event. “A big thanks to him for doing that because that mare needed to be there,” Cushing said. “I knew that she could be a finalist, I just needed to have a little bit of luck on my side.” Owned by Eric Dunn, Smart Crackin Cat (High Brow Cat x Smart Crackin Chic by Smart Chic Olena) is called “Bella” at the barn and can also be called the Open Novice Champion of the NRCHA Stakes. She earned a 217 in the herd work, a 214.5 in the rein work and a 219 in the fence work for a total of 650.5.

The fence run was the highlight for me. I was really happy in the finals of the Limited Open with my herd work run. I really worked at that to get better and I kind of struggled with it before. She’s a really cowy mare and she wants to be good. She’s a good circler and a good stopper in the reining. I wanted to show those off a little bit in the pattern, but I really knew that she would excel in the fence work because she’s always been really good at that. I’d like to thank her owner, Julie Strenge, for giving me the opportunity to show the horse and Jake and Jessie Telford for giving me the opportunity to show their horses.”

V

eteran professional John Ward, an NRCHA Million Dollar Rider and two-time Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion, demonstrated grace under pressure when his bridle fell apart during the NRCHA Stakes herd work preliminaries, forcing him to finish most of the run bridleless. It happened, appropriately enough, on April Fool’s Day. “I really don’t like it when something new happens in the show pen,” the Kingsburg, California, horseman said with a laugh. “That was one of a kind. But what are you gonna do? You’ve got to keep showing.” Ward was riding Smashingly Smart (Smart Little Pepinic x Montanas Fox x Montana Doc), a 2010 gelding owned by Tom and Lorie Fox. As the pair worked their first cow, one side of the headstall detached from the snaffle bit, which gradually slid all the way out of Smashingly Smart’s mouth. Ward still had about a minute and a half left to work. Guided only with the bit and reins under his neck, the sorrel gelding, nicknamed “Ben,” went back into the herd not just once, but twice, as if nothing was amiss. “I figured we’re in the bridleless class, so let’s just go do it. And, bless his heart, ol’ ‘Ben,’ he just throws down and goes to working that cow and we end up marking a 213.5. Everybody’s cheering, and I throw my hands up,” Ward said. He admitted he had only himself to blame for the malfunction. “Most people know I’m not real good at polishing or cleaning tack, and I’m the one who put [the bridle] together, and I can’t fire myself,” he said, good-naturedly. Despite the April Fool’s herd work surprise, Ward and Smashingly Smart went on to a strong finish at the Stakes, qualifying for a berth in the Intermediate Open Finals. —Stephanie Duquette

We had a weak cow down the fence, and it fell down and didn’t have enough to finish the run. She’s a really, really nice horse. She tries really hard. She might not be the most talented thing in the world, but her heart is what makes up for it. She rides really easy and she shows good for me. She always has good intentions whether you are going to show or work her.”

Lyn Anderson and Tuckers Smart Cat, a horse she said is “made for the fence,” won the Smart Boons $10,000 Fence Challenge.

R

eined cow horse fans love the versatility of the equine athletes, but what packs the seats is the excitement of the mano a mano duel between horse and cow down the fence. On April 3, fans were given a treat with the Smart Boons $10,000 Fence Challenge at the South Point Equestrian Center.

Not only did the 23 horses and riders competing in the challenge provide excitement, they also gave the crowd a thrilling four-horse run-off to determine the champion after the top horses marked a 148. When the dust finally settled, Tuckers Smart Cat (WR This Cats Smart x Smoke Time Tuck x Doc Tom

Tucker) and Lyn Anderson, Madera, California, were crowned the champions. Anderson purchased the horse as a yearling at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales for Dave and Barbara Archer. The 8-year-old is familiar with championship honors. He made the Open Finals at the 2010 Snaffle Bit Futurity and won the Open Hackamore World Championship in 2012 and 2013 at the NRCHA Celebration of Champions. “The horse was made for the fence,” Anderson said. “He loves the fence and has made lots of good fence runs. It was the last thing to do in the week, and I was going home the next day so I said, ‘I’ll stay around for the run at $10,000.’ I’ve been in lots of fence challenges that are for saddles or something and people just absolutely love to watch them. It’s just fun. You go in, you get out and the best cow wins. They are really just a fun thing to do. I asked Dave and he said it sounded good to him so away we went.” Anderson says the cow dictates your game plan. “I was the last one to go so I had seen that the cattle didn’t need to be boxed much,” Anderson said. “The guys had told me that they didn’t have much air so I was going to go in and get what you needed to get done as fast as you can and get out. ‘Tucker’ loves to dominate a cow, and he loves to run.”

This is my horse

Horses are part of our lifestyle on the ranch. Showing is just an extension of that. It's basically a test for my horse and me. I use a tailor-made training program to fit each individual horse's needs, whether he is destined for ranch work or the show pen. Nutrition is the same. Every horse is a bit different. With Cactapuss, I knew that if I did my job showing him, he had the talent to win the Snaffle Bit Futurity. But if your horses aren't fit come finals night in Reno, you aren't going to be competitive. To keep your horse strong and sound, you have to be on the right program- for me, that's Platinum.

///////// NRCHA STAKES In the finals for the herd work, we were at the end of the set. I didn’t get my first cow driven out very well so we didn’t have a super great herd work but after that I was just wanting the other two events to be good so that I could do as well as I could. She was OK in the dry work and then in the fence work, I wanted to fix what I had screwed up in the prelims. I think we ended up doing that so the finals of the fence work was definitely a highlight. We got to end on a good note.” In the fall, Kania will be attending graduate school and studying physical therapy. She plans to breed Flo next year. “She’s going to have a few years off while I’m at school,” Kania said. “Hopefully when I am all done with that, I can start showing her again as a bridle horse. She’s going to stay in the family for a very long time.” After spending the winter working on a ranch, Goldies Boss Man returned to the show pen with Jamie Schrack to win the Amateur with a 634 composite.

Cushing points to the mare’s consistency in all three events as her biggest strength. “She cuts really good and she’s good with her ears,” he said. “In the reining, she presents a real pretty picture. She stops big and turns around nice. Down the fence, if you show her the right spot and the right opportunity, she’s going to give it to you every single time. She’s really, really nice that way.”

VEGAS TIME Visitors to Las Vegas often find it hard to keep track of time. For Elizabeth Kania and Uno What Time It Flo (Uno What Time It Is x Dew It Flo x Mr Peponita Flo), Vegas and the NRCHA Stakes was their time to shine. The duo picked up Championships in the Intermediate Non Pro and the Novice Non Pro while also

garnering Non Pro Reserve Champion honors. “She’s got a huge personality,” Kania said of the 5-year-old mare, who is owned by Kania’s mother, Renee DuBois. “She’s the sweetest horse at the barn. Everyone loves her. There’s nothing not to like about that horse.” In the Non Pro finals, Kania and “Flo” marked a 207 in the herd work, a 213.5 in the rein work and a 219 fence work for a total of 639.5, but their entry into the finals wasn’t guaranteed. “I had just kind of squeaked into the finals of the Non Pro,” Kania said. “They took 12 of the Non Pros and I was sitting 10th. I didn’t have a real great fence work in the prelims. It was all my fault. I knew exactly what I had done wrong right after I did it. Flo was listening to me, but I was just putting her in the wrong spot.

WORKING COW HORSE Goldies Boss Man (CD Lights x Shiners Goldielocks x Shining Spark) earns his keep inside the show pen and out. Jamie Schrack’s parents, Jim and Linda Schrack, decided to let their daughter try the horse after he was campaigned by Phillip Ralls. “I got him in November,” Schrack remembers. “My parents let me try him to see if we got along. We did. He’s awesome.” But Jamie wasn’t the only one trying out the horse. Her fiancé, Bobby Roberts, was also testing the horse. “All winter long, my fiancé branded on him and gathered on him and used him,” Schrack said. “He even team roped on him a little bit. He’s just a really cool horse. You can go do whatever you want on him, and he’s going to be there for you.” In the NRCHA Stakes Amateur, Schrack’s goal with “Leo” was to mark a 200 in each event.

“I wanted to be around a 610, but I didn’t want to push it,” Schrack said. “If I could just get three scores above a 200, I would be really happy. I wanted to give him the best opportunity to do good and do what he knows how to do.” Mission accomplished. The duo marked a 215.5 in the herd, a 214 in the reining and a 204.5 in the cow work. “Reining was the first event, and when I walked out, I couldn’t even believe it,” Schrack recalled. I didn’t feel like we got our stops as good as we can and there were some spots that we could improve so I was amazed at my score. The same for my herd work. I didn’t feel like the cows moved around very much so I didn’t feel like I could get a cow that would allow me to mark very good and we didn’t have a very good opportunity, but it worked out really well for us.

“The cow work could have gone a little bit better, but I still stayed above my 200 mark,” she added. “I really just wanted to go out there and see what would happen.” She exceeded her goal and ended with a composite score of 634. “Jake Gorrell has helped me so, so much,” Schrack said. “I couldn’t have done any of this without Jake. We had to go back to square one on the fence work even though I’ve been doing this forever. There’s no way I could have done this without his help and the support of my parents and my fiancé, Bobby Roberts. They are all there for me and helped me out a lot.”

HERE COMES TROUBLE It’s not often that trouble can win you a champion title, but that’s what Reys Stylish Bell did for Farrah Roberts. Reys

Stylish Bell (Dual Rey x Blues Stylish Bell x Docs Stylish Oak) is described by his owner as funny and very quirky. “We call him “Trouble,” Roberts said. He’s the funniest horse that we’ve been around. Within the first week, he ripped apart three sheets, pulled his boots off, and kept getting into trouble. We kept trying to find a name for him, and Trouble is his name. Other than that, he’s been a really, really good horse.” Roberts and Trouble earned the Non Pro Limited Championship with a score of 238.5 (213 herd/213.5 rein/212 cow). Even more impressive knowing that Roberts came very close to scratching the horse before his first run in Vegas. “He’s just been wonderful and really easy to work with,” Roberts said. “He is so easy to show. He might be a brat to warm up and school right before you go in, but when you go in there, he just does his job. He makes showing really easy. I just wanted to put a nice run together because we found out the day before that he has EPM. We were going to scratch him because he hadn’t been the best that he had been for us and things had kind of been falling apart steadily. We were going to scratch him the night before, but we decided we would warm him up and see how he was the morning of. I just wanted to put a nice run together.” The plan worked. “His strengths are his lead changes, and he’s a big stopper,” Roberts said. “We went out there and he was so good. His biggest weakness is his spins. He went out there and spun just fine. I was really impressed with him after that.” Trouble is a fighter and the prognosis for the newly crowned champion is good. “He is responding to the medication,” Roberts said. “We started him on the medication in Vegas. It’s looking good for him.”

Farrah Roberts found out Reys Stylish Bell has EPM and won the Non Pro Limited Championship, all at the same show. REINED COW HORSE NEWS | MAY/JUNE 2015

HORSE THIEF! Trainer Jay McLaughlin stole a horse from his son, Cutter, to win the Open Bridle Spectacular with CD Dee Vee Dee.

By Jennifer K. Hancock

Ten-year-old CD Dee Vee Dee and Jay McLaughlin won the Open Bridle Spectacular in Las Vegas with a composite score of 661.

J

ay McLaughlin readily admits to stealing a horse. But that’s probably because the stolen horse first stole a special place in McLaughlin’s heart. In the Open Bridle Spectacular, CD Dee Vee Dee (CD Lights x Shiners Missy Jay x Shining Spark) and Jay McLaughlin added to their storied history, but that’s not why “DVD” was in Vegas. He was there as the mount for Jay and Wendy McLaughlin’s 11-yearold son, Cutter. “I stole that horse from my son,” McLaughlin said with a laugh. “DVD

has always been special to me. I showed him as a 4-year-old, and I won $100,000 on him.” When the horse that McLaughlin planned to show got hurt, he hatched the perfect back-up plan. “I thought there was no reason for DVD to sit out there all week for Cutter to show him only on the weekend, so I entered him in the Open Bridle,” McLaughlin said. “That horse deserves every picture that he gets to take. He’s just one of those kind. He just wants to get along. He and Cutter really get along very well and I always

knew that they would. He’s just one of those good horses.” McLaughlin and his trusty mount marked a 219 in the herd, a 220.5 in the reining and 221.5 on the fence for a total of 661. “His trick is his running stop,” McLaughlin said. “I don’t care how fast you’re running, he stops. It’s like he has a vendetta against the ground he hits it so hard, but he sure takes care of Cutter. There wouldn’t be another horse that I would get for him to go down the fence on because I know that horse is safe. He’s not a manufactured

///////// NRCHA STAKES BRIDLE SPECTACULAR

Kassi Ryff and Chico Flo got to know each other on the ranch before teaming up in the show pen, where they recently won the Non Pro Bridle Spectacular at the NRCHA Stakes.

horse. He is who he is. I wouldn’t say that I taught him anything – he just does it. I’m just proud to have my brand on him.” McLaughlin is proud of DVD because at 10, the horse is a testament to the horsemanship involved in reined cow horse. “It’s something that you always strive to do,” McLaughlin explained. “You just strive to be the best and see who can be the best cowman as well as horseman that day. First, the horse has got to be really broke, but not overdone. That’s the toughest part. Then you’ve got to pick the cows and know how to work ‘em and then you’ve got to hope for the best one. I strive to be as good as the old bridle horsemen. If I can have a horse that goes through all

the phases, and steps from the snaffle to the hackamore to the two-rein to the bridle and I end up with a sound horse as a 9-year-old, I’ve done a really good job. There are some great horsemen that had DVD before and after me, and this horse is still at the top of his game. That’s a big fluffy feeling in my stomach because he’s not lame, he’s not sore, he’s not sour, he’s not over thinking. He’s just going through the motions and doing what you tell him and that’s a true bridle horse to me. The horse is the gift.”

HORSE TRADED Kassi Ryff didn’t hear the horror stories about Chico Flo (Chic Please x Scarlet Flo x Mr Peponita Flo) until it was too late. But that’s probably

best because Ryff and “Howard” have written their own story, and it has a happy ending. Ryff bought the gelding in 2012 on the advice of her trainer, who described the horse as “been trained on for a long time and needing some ranching time.” Since Ryff’s family ranches, she thought it would be a good fit. “I hopped on him, and I didn’t know anything,” Ryff said, who had ridden with a cow horse trainer a couple times at that point. “I rode the horse and thought, ‘How bad can he be? He turns when I turn. He stops when I stop. We can work with this.’ I get him and he’s real laid back and just cool.” After spending a few months at the ranch, she took him to a show and the talk began. “And then I heard all the stories about him,” Ryff said. “People said good luck with that because he can run off, and he’s a jerk and this and that. He’s never – not one single time – acted that way with me, but it was shocking. He’s just the perfect horse.” Howard’s perfection was displayed in the Non Pro Bridle Spectacular. The pair marked a 210 in the herd, a 216.5 in reining and a 222 in the cow work for a 648.5 composite. Ryff and Howard did it without their usual support system. “I didn’t have any of my family there,” Ryff said. “I ride with Don Murphy, and he wasn’t there because he had to have hip replacement surgery. I felt just a little bit all by myself. I had no expectations. I just wanted to do the best that I could do. I know that horse is amazing if I can just stay out of his way. He’s super fun to do the cow work on because you are not going to get beat. He’s real fast. You just point him where he needs to go and he’ll get the job done. It feels amazing to ride a horse like that.”

he National Reined Cow Horse Association returns to its roots for the Jack & Phoebe Cooke Memorial Derby June 15-20 in Paso Robles, California, the heart of cow horse country. California’s central coast is rich with the history of the Spanish vaqueros who, in the 1700s, developed the reined cow horse training methods that later evolved into the modern version of the sport. A formidable field of equine triathletes converges upon the Paso Robles Event Center each year for the NRCHA’s largest and richest 4- and 5-year-old cow horse event. The draw sheet for the Derby Open Finals typically represents a “who’s who” of cow horse champions, both human and equine. Last year’s field of 20 Open finalist contained seven NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity and two National Reining Horse Association Futurity Champion riders; two Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion horses; five NRCHA Million Dollar Riders; three NRCHA World’s Greatest Horseman Champions; and two NRCHA Hall of Fame horsemen. Also in the mix were the 2014 NRCHA Stakes and Hackamore Classic Champion horses. The $50,000-added CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, sponsored by Nancy Crawford-Hall’s Holy Cow Performance Horses, of Santa Ynez,

California, and Weatherford, Texas, is another major focal point of Derby week in Paso Robles. Crawford-Hall established the class, which awards the CD Survivor Memorial Trophy to the Open Champion, as a tribute to her beloved stallion (CD Olena x Have A Lil Lena x Peppy San Badger), who was euthanized in 2009 at age 8 following injuries sustained in an accident.

HE RIGHT FIT

By Bridget Kirkwood

Properly fitting a sale horse allows that horse to be presented at its absolute best on sale day.

Fitting a yearling for sale helps attract the eye of the buyer.

H

ave you ever walked into a horse sale and wondered why some horse shine more than others? Why some horses are fat, fit and sleek and others aren’t? Or have you ever wondered why your horse’s presentation in the sale ring hasn’t matched it’s pedigree? Chances are that the horses with the glossy locks have had the benefit of professional help or, in horse sale terms, they’ve been “fitted” for the sale.

Jeff Oswood focuses his sales fitting efforts on three things – hair coat, weight and physical fitness – to help each horse shine in the sale ring.

Sales fitting, or sales prepping, is a 60-90 day turn-key service that helps horses look their best on sale day by focusing on the horse’s coat, weight and physical fitness. Professional sales fitter Jeff Oswood, of Oswood Stallion Station in Weatherford, Texas, has developed a successful sales fitting program that consistently results in horses that look their absolute best on sale day. According to Oswood, the most important thing a person can do to get a horse ready for a sale is to start early. He believes the process takes a minimum of 60 days, and that the better the horse looks at the start of the process, the better

it will be at the end. Horses destined for the NRCHA Futurity Snaffle Bit Sales, to be held Oct. 1-3 this year, should commence their fitting program no later than Aug. 1. Presentation in the sale ring, which can result in a higher sales price, is often influenced by the horse’s manners as much as the condition it is in. Before arriving at the fitting center, young horses should be halter broke, easy to handle and in good body condition. Oswood makes sure his yearlings meet the following criteria before they enter the fitting program: • Halter broke • Leads well

• Picks up all four feet for trimming and has had its feet trimmed before • Ties up and stands to be groomed • Works in a round pen Yearlings that are born at Oswood Stallion Station begin preparation for the sale ring from the day they are born. They are constantly handled, and are caught every 30 days for maintenance such as worming, vaccinations and trims. When an outside horse arrives at Oswood’s fitting facility, it is weighed and given a score on its physical condition. The yearling is then taken to the round pen, where it is worked individually and its manners assessed.

///////// NRCHA SNAFFLE BIT FUTURITY SALES

Yearlings may start their sale fitting journey in a pasture before transitioning to a barn for the final stages of sale prepping.

Round pen work is usually done on a lunge line, where the yearling learns to work at the walk, trot and lope. It takes most horses about four days to learn how to quietly move up and down through the gaits. The daily round pen work continues for up to two weeks. Once the yearling is working well in the round pen and is able to be easily caught, it is introduced to the Equicizer. An Equicizer is similar to a hot walker, but instead of being tied to the walker, each horse is loose in a moving pen, allowing it to walk and trot freely. Oswood’s Equicizer accomodates six horses, but each yearling is initially worked by itself. After the yearling becomes comfortable in the Equicizer –

which generally takes two to three days – horses are added to other pens until a group of six can be worked together. The yearlings are organized into sets according to their sex and the amount of exercise they will need to achieve ultimate sale ring condition and fitness. Exercise periods on the Equicizer range from 15-30 minutes and are conducted five days a week. Every yearling is also worked individually in the round pen once each week. After a yearling is exercised, it is tied up for grooming. Tying the yearlings up helps them learn to be patience, gets them prepared for the waiting that will occur at the sale and helps prepare them for their future training.

Every horse is groomed six days a week in one of Oswood’s three grooming stations. The horse is either vacuumed or bathed, depending on what the handler feels it requires that day. Vacuuming is good for the hair coat, helps the yearling become more broke and is enjoyable for the horses. Many yearlings nap while being vacuumed. The fitting process gives yearlings many new experiences from which to learn. Oswood has found that the more calm and relaxed a horse is during the fitting period, the better it looks at sale time. To that end, he works toward reducing anxiety in the horses he raises from the time they are weanlings. Weaning occurs when the colts are 5 to

6 months old. They are then put in groups of 8-12 horses. The horses in each group will be of the same sex and destined for the same sale; reined cow horses are with reined cow horses, reiners are with reiners and cutters are with cutters. Grouping the horses keeps the yearlings more comfortable when they are brought up to the barn to begin sales prep. In the barn, they are stalled separately, but are housed next to other horses from their group. They will also be next to those same horses when they go to the sale. Once the yearlings transition from pasture to barn, they stay in stalls until sale day to protect their hair coat from getting bleached by the sun. Oswood has seen hair coats get burned after just a few

Young horses that are raised at Oswood are handled early on, making sale prep easier as they age.

Yearlings are extensively handled to assure their manners are impeccable on sale day. The extra training pays off with a pretty presentation for prospective buyers.

Broodmares that are headed to a sale are often left on pasture, as their level of physical fitness is not as important as it is for young stock.

hours of exposure to the hot Texas sun. Being inside also gets yearlings used to regular foot traffic from people who work in the barn and from prospective buyers, along with the noise and bustle of a busy barn. Lights are utilized to help the yearlings maintain short coats with good color. The growth of a horse’s hair coat is regulated by the amount of daylight. As the days get shorter, the horse starts to grow hair. Oswood’s light program, which starts on Sept. 1, provides horses with 16 hours of light per day, which tricks the horse’s body into thinking it is June instead of September. For the horse’s health and the sake of the hair coat, the yearlings are never allowed to get too hot or too cold.

Oswood’s barn is screened rather than being fully enclosed, which allows for good airflow throughout the barn. While that airflow is important to a horse’s health, it also means that the temperature of the barn fluctuates more readily with outside environment. So when in the barn, yearlings learn to accept a blanket. August and September can be too warm for a blanket, but sheets will be put on and off the yearlings on an as-needed basis. Blanketing during the sale prep period is also necessary so that a horse can be easily blanketed in Reno’s often cooler climate. Broodmares go through a fitting process similar to that of yearlings. While they must be well-presented and carrying optimal weight, not as much empha-

sis is put on their hair coat and physical fitness. This is mainly due to the fact that many broodmares are retired show horses and their level of soundness may prevent them from handling a lot of structured exercise. For this reason, whenever the weather permits, Oswood allows the broodmares to go out in the pastures. About Jeff Oswood and Oswood Stallion Station: Oswood Stallion Station is a turn-key facility for stallions, broodmares, foals, weanlings and yearlings owned and operated by Jeff Oswood. It was initially established as a stallion station and mare care facility, and fitting sale yearlings was a natural progression from there. Many of the foals that are conceived and born at Oswood remain

there until they are presented for sale as a yearling. Oswood prepares broodmares and yearlings for three sales each year – the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales in Reno; the National Reining Horse Association Futurity Sales in Oklahoma City; and the National Cutting Horse Association Futurity Sales in Fort Worth, Texas. Once a horse has been dropped off at Oswood, the owner does not need to handle it again. Oswood provides everything required to get the horse ready for the sale, takes them to the sale and prepares them for the sale ring on sale day. Find out more by visiting www. OswoodStallionStation.com

Oswood keeps young horses in the same groups throughout the sales prep process.

///////// FEED & WEIGHT

P

roviding the horse with high-quality feed and adjusting the horse’s caloric intake according to its requirements is one of the most important aspects of fitting a yearling. As the yearling’s weight fluctuates throughout the 60-90 day fitting process, so too should its diet. The majority of yearlings and broodmares at Oswood Stallion Station are fed Purina Strategy and alfalfa hay. Grass hay may be substituted for horses that need to lose weight; Weight gain supplements and coat supplements may be given to horses that require it. Each horse’s physical condition is continuously assessed and dietary adjustments may be made as often as every 10 days, depending on how the horse is metabolizing its ration. Oswood stresses the importance of having a horse look as good as it possibly can, with the best manners it can have, prior to starting the fitting process. He has found that horses that start well end up looking the best on sale day. Yearlings that are underweight or overweight at the start of sales prepping are at a disadvantage. Adding weight to a horse has to be a relatively slow process or the horse will gain weight in undesirable areas, such as the stomach and neck. While Oswood prefers to receive an overweight horse than one that’s underweight, dropping an extra 100 pounds can also be difficult due to the amount exercise a yearling can handle. Every horse at Oswood is on a mineral and joint supplement. More than 90 percent of their sale yearlings are x-rayed prior to the sale. Oswood attributes their high rate of clean x-rays to their feed and supplement regime.

n the world of stocks and investments, a “bull market” is used to describe a period of months, or even years, when asset prices consistently rise. Many professionals say this is the current trend in the reined cow horse industry, which bodes well for the highly anticipated National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales, held during finals weekend of the Futurity each fall in Reno.

BY THE NUMBERS

The Futurity Sales have been around almost as long as the Futurity itself. The first Snaffle Bit Futurity was held in Sacramento, California, in 1970, and the horse sale joined the event lineup in 1971, quickly gaining a reputation as a premier marketplace for talented horseflesh. Eventually, what was first known as the Snaffle Bit Futurity Performance Horse Sale branched out into four separate sales that have steadily gained prestige over time. For many cow horse fans who make the annual trip to Reno, the sales carry as much excitement as the competition in the show arena. Parnell pointed to the sale numbers for 2014 as evidence of the growing value of the quality reined cow horse. Overall, the sales grossed At $102,000, the overall high-selling horse at the 2014 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales was Miss Peptoleno (One Time Pepto x Starleno $2,268,500 – an increase of x Gray Starlight), a 2013 filly consigned by Circle Y Ranch.

orse owners looking to consign horses to the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Select Yearling and Broodmare Sale might want to consider consigning to the Classic sale, suggested Dar Hanson, manager of Ward River Ranch and a member of the NRCHA sale committee. Although the Classic sale does not carry the prestige of the Select sale, Hanson said it can be a very good option for some horses. Simply put, Hanson prefers to be at the top end of the Classic sale instead of the middle to lower end of the Select sale. “There are certain horses that could qualify for the Select sale, but would have sold better in the Thursday (Classic) sale,” he said. “There’s a different group

of people looking at those horses on Thursday. I think most of them are looking to spend between $3,500 and $18,000 to $20,000 on a horse. We’ve done really well in that sale with horses. It’s where some of them belong.” Hanson believes there’s a horse for every market, and getting your horse in the top end of that market is the ideal situation. He said there is more demand for horses in that price range in the Classic sale, and holding a horse over for the Select sale could reduce the number of potential buyers for a horse in that market. “Some of the people who might buy your horse will have already bought a horse in the Classic sale. They are simply not shopping the Select sale, and by putting a horse that fits in the $3,500 to $20,000 market in the Select sale, you’re reducing the number of potential buyers,” he said. Everyone wants to be a part of the select horses he said, but financially speaking, often it is more profitable to sell on Thursday. Hanson said it boils down to making a living in the horse

business, and he believes some horses will bring more on Thursday than if they fall to the middle or bottom of the sale on Saturday. Another factor to consider is the competitiveness of getting into the Select sale on Saturday. “The criteria for the Select Sale can change year to year, depending on the horses. We have a limited amount of time to conduct the sale, so we have to stick to a certain number of horses. Because of that, the criteria to get in the Saturday sale can shift,” he said. “Some years, you might get a horse in the Select sale whose dam won $15,000 in NRCHA. But in some years, it’s harder to get that horse in.” Part of Hanson’s job on the sale committee is to notify people if their horses did not get in the Select sale. ”People are usually really bummed, but that’s not the end of the road. Everybody wants to be accepted, but I think you can do yourself a real disservice by not considering the Classic sale. I’m a big supporter of the Thursday sale.” Last year, Ward River Ranch consigned 13 horses to the Classic sale and two yearlings to the Select sale. The NRCHA Yearling Purse applies to both the Classic and Select sales, and the percentage of horses that sell are very similar. This year’s Classic sale will be held on Thursday, Oct. 1, and the Select sale will be Saturday, Oct. 3, before the Futurity finals.

///////// FROM THE JUDGE’S CHAIR

During a fence work, is it good or bad to turn the cow and then continue circling it the same direction? NRCHA Director of Judges Bill Enk has the answer.

A

few years ago, the National Reined Cow Horse Association Judges Committee took up the debate: Was it a fence turn or not? The answer is defined in the National Reined Cow Horse Association rule book on page 75. The horse and rider must be far enough forward on the cow to be the cause of the turn. This is not to say it was an average, good or excellent turn; only that it was a qualified turn. Next, the committee addressed the “circling turn” issue, which arises when horse and rider turn the cow and then immediately circle in the same direction. Judges are confronted with this situation when the exhibitor makes only one fence turn each direction, and the second turn transitions into the first set of circles. First of all, were the horse and rider far enough forward on the animal to be considered a qualified turn? If so, when did the turn finish and the circle start? In a two-turn fence work, we want the exhibitor to separate the turn and circle manuevers. It is easier to gain credit in the circles when the judge knows where they start and where they conclude. The preferred method of separating the turn and circles is to change to the other side of the cow and do the first set of circles in the other direction. This will potentially earn the most credit if the exhibitor can demonstrate control. Another way to separate the maneuvers

is to briefly hesitate after the fence turn, then continue with the circles. We routinely see cattle attempting to get out in the open field after the first If the judge can easily tell when the fence turn ends and the circles begin, it is more likely to be a credit-earning situation for the exhibitor. turn. This could be due to Pictured: NRCHA Professional Jay Holmes and Yep Pretty Purdy (Pretty a poor finish to the turn or Boy Cat x Purdy Pistol x Peppy San Badger). the cow presenting a high degree of difficulty. Once the animal unless the exhibitor switched sides and makes an attempt to get to the open circled the opposite direction as the field, the exhibitor has two choices to turn.

STALLION SUBSCRIPTION RULES 1. By nomination of a foal crop, offspring of a subscribed stallion from the nominated foal crop are eligible to show in the NRCHA Stakes both as 4-year-olds and 5-year-olds. Offspring from a nominated foal crop of a subscribed stallion are also eligible for consideration for the NRCHA Select Yearling and Select 2-Year-Old Sales. Broodmares in foal to stallions subscribed for the current breeding year (next year’s foal crop) are eligible for consideration for the NRCHA Select Broodmare Sale. 2. Any stallion of any breed may be subscribed to the NRCHA Stakes program, subject to provisions as set forth in these rules and stipulated on the entry form. 3. Nominations must be postmarked and paid by February 1 of the following year for each calendar year to avoid paying the higher fee of the following year. However, to make yearlings, 2-year-olds, and/or bred mares eligible for consideration for the NRCHA Select Sales, those stallions must be subscribed by June 1 of that particular sale year. 4. Nomination fees will be as follows: a. Paid during the breeding year (the next year’s foal crop) - $750 (or $2,500 for current breeding year and next four consecutive breeding years) b. Weanling year - $1,000 c. Yearling year - $1,250 d. 2-year-old year - $1,500 e. 3-year-old year - $1,750   5.   4-year-old year: Nominations received between February 1 of the 4-year-old year and the final entry deadline for that NRCHA  Stakes event will be accepted at the rate of $2,500. 5-year-old foal crops that have not been previously subscribed may also be paid in for $2,500. 6. All nominators of stallions must be members in good standing of the NRCHA. 7. Nominators may be persons other than the owner or syndicate manager of the stallion in the event the stallion owner or syndicate manager chooses not to enroll the stallion. In the event that the nominator is someone other than the owner or syndicate manager of the stallion, the nominator represents that they are authorized to nominate the stallion. 8. All subscription fees will be made payable to the NRCHA in US funds or its equivalent. 9. The added purse for the NRCHA Stakes will consist of not less than the total stallion nomination fees received less 20% for NRCHA administration. The remaining 80% will be divided between the Open and Non Pro divisions in accordance with NRCHA Board policy. The NRCHA shall have the right to supplement the added-money purse for the event, but shall be under no obligation to do so. A minimum of 5% of the total purse will be used for the Stallion Nominator Award as described below. 10. There shall be no refunds of the nomination fee paid for any reason, and the fee (less 20% for NRCHA administration as set forth above) will become part of the purse for the NRCHA Stakes. 11. In the event a subscribed stallion changes ownership, any previously paid foal crops will remain eligible under the new owner. Nominator Awards will be paid to the original nominator unless otherwise specified in writing to the NRCHA and signed by  both the original nominator and the new owner. 12. Stallion Nominator Award: The nominator of the stallion siring the winners of the NRCHA Stakes will receive a monetary award as set by the NRCHA Board of Directors. 13. A list of subscribed stallions nominated to this program and their eligible foal crops will be posted on the NRCHA website, and will be available upon request from the NRCHA. 14. These rules are subject to change at any time by the NRCHA Board of Directors.
