///////// From The Executive Director

Dear NRCHA Members, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” -Henry Ford One of the most gratifying elements of my role as the National Reined Cow Horse Association Executive Director has been my relationship with the talented individuals who make up our NRCHA staff. You already know that our staff operates the NRCHA office, as well as produces and promotes our Premier Events. What you may not know is that we have fewer people on staff than before I came on board with the NRCHA, and for the past three years, this lean and efficient group has been proving that less really is more. With cheerfulness and aplomb, this staff has helped our association thrive during a dynamic period of growth and change. Many of our members, owners, sponsors, and exhibitors routinely thank our staff for their good work, particularly during our shows, and I want to do the same. They are the backbone of our association and integral to our success. The full-time employees in the NRCHA Office are Senior Administrator

Carrie McBride, Show Coordinator Allison Walker, Membership and Trade Show Coordinator Barbara Nahlik, and Accounting Manager Joy Galvan. These ladies provide exceptional customer service, whether they are at the home office in Pilot Point, Texas, or on site at our NRCHA Premier Events. We also enjoy a great relationship with our contract employees. You see these people at our Premier Events, and I guarantee that two of them in particular work very hard on the association’s behalf all year round. Show Secretary Kelley Hartranft and Communications Manager Stephanie Duquette are as valuable to the team as the staff in Pilot Point. It is no secret that without our facility management and cattle crew, our Premier Events would be a mess. But thanks to the team that includes Mike Lund, Morgan Tweedy, Pat Russell, Billy Mello, Andi Paul, Cecil Hillerman, and more, the big NRCHA shows are more than just smoothly executed events - they are something to be proud of. These stalwart people work in the heat and cold, through early dawn and dark of night, to bring you the best experience possible. And last, but certainly not least, the individuals who capture the memorable moments at our shows and broadcast our sport worldwide deserve a round of applause: our Official Photographer, Primo Morales; and our Official Videographer, Equine Promotion, with Jeremy Olsen at the helm. To everyone on the NRCHA staff, I want to say a sincere and personal thanks. You are valued and appreciated! All the best! Jay Winborn

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

Q&A with THE NRCHA PRESIDENT

RCHN: We also saw the firstever reined cow horse champion

crowned at the National High School Finals Rodeo in July. What is this partnership between the NRCHA and the National High School Rodeo Association going to do for our industry? TB: Bringing reined cow horse to the National High School Rodeo Association has been a process several years in the making, and it was outstanding to see about 100 kids competing at the National Finals for that first reined cow horse championship. It’s obvious that these youth represent the future success of our whole industry, so the fact that we can invite a new group of kids into the NRCHA is critical. We saw quite a few familiar faces from the NRCHA Youth Association competing there in Rock Springs, Wyoming, and there was also a whole different segment of

kids from a strong rodeo background taking part in the cow horse. There were a lot of people in awe of those young riders, some of whom were tackling a brand new discipline the cow horse - for the first time. I think it’s a very positive and natural connection for our two worlds. I also want to thank and recognize our NRCHA professionals - Matt Koch, Zane Davis and Chris Dawson - who went to the National Finals to help out with a clinic that drew more than 70 kids. Our staff also did a terrific job getting this event off the ground for the first time and coordinating with the National High School Rodeo Association to make it happen, and we had excellent coverage by our official videographer, Equine Promotion, as well. I think great things are ahead for this alliance.

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

Reined Cow Horse News: The 2015 Snaffle Bit Futurity is right around the corner, which will wrap up our Premier Event schedule for the year. What are some of your thoughts as we head into this much anticipated show? Todd Bergen: Futurity season is full of ups and downs. Like everyone else, I am excited about this upcoming trip to Reno. Our NRCHA staff has been working harder than ever to make this year’s Futurity a great experience for everyone. Whether you are coming to Reno as a rider, owner, sponsor, spectator, horse sale customer, or some combination of those things, I’m confident that the time will be very well spent and enjoyable. We are expecting big things out of the Futurity Sales, and buyer confidence should be even higher this year due to the addition of the Asteris x-ray repository. Thanks to that brand-new system, buyers can quickly and easily have their veterinarian look at the x-rays for all the Select 2-Year-Olds, as well as the Select Yearling and Broodmare Sale consignments. The system is accessible whether you are in Reno or halfway across the country during the sale. We feel good about putting this technology in place for our sale and are looking forward to a positive effect for consignors and buyers alike.

N

RCHA 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.

Olena Oak Becomes New Leading NRCHA Money Earner Stephanie Duquette

The 13-year-old stallion, Olena Oak, became the new NRCHA leading money-earning horse, following his fourthplace finish at the 2015 CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular at the NRCHA Derby in Paso Robles, California.

W

hen Olena Oak (Smart Chic Olena x Fritzs Oak E Doakie x Doc’s Oak) placed fourth in the CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular at the NRCHA Derby in Paso Robles, California, on June 19, the $10,200 paycheck made him the No. 1 money-earning horse in the NRCHA. The 2002 stallion has career NRCHA earnings of $339,898. “ I’m tickled to death,” Olena Oak’s trainer, Ron Emmons, Ione, California, said. “It’s something I’ve been trying to do. I knew, coming to Paso Robles, that I needed like $4,000. I just wanted to come place in the Bridle Spectacular, and luckily, out of these tough buggers, I got to place! It’s been a goal. When he got to the point when he was 9 and 10 years old, I knew he had a lot left in him. We had won a lot, and I thought, gosh,

I’d sure like to make him the No. 1 horse.” Olena Oak, known as “Ernie” around the barn, is owned by Nichole Scott and Ron’s wife, LaDona Emmons. Both women were thrilled by the news. “I am in awe. The bridle horses are so amazing. I think it speaks for all of our horses that are clearly great, and the people riding them. It is a team effort. To own one of them, and have it be one that has gone this far and had this much success, you’re just so happy,” LaDona Emmons said. “I’m just excited. I’m excited for Ron on a huge accomplishment, and the horse.” Scott admitted the news hadn’t quite sunk in yet, and acknowledged the efforts of her fellow owners who all strive for their horses’ success. “I think in a way, it’s maybe a little unfair because so many other owners

have had 10, 20, 30, hundreds of horses, and here I have a handful, and one of them happens to be him. In another way, I feel like this is where he is supposed to be. I want to thank Ron and LaDona for everything they have done, and for loving him and taking care of him. This has always been, and always will be, a partnership between Ron and LaDona and I. This was a big goal, and I don’t know where we will go from here, but I know he will always be very well taken care of,” Scott said. Since the summer of 2010, the NRCHA’s No. 1 money-earner had been Topsails Rien Maker (Topsail Cody x Jameen Gay x Toby Gay Bar), whose official NRCHA earnings are $335,612. The 1999 stallion is shown by Russell Dilday, Wynnewood, Oklahoma, and owned in partnership between Dilday and Kevin Cantrelle. “I want to thank Russell for setting the standard we had to go chase. Hopefully we have set it for someone else to chase,” Emmons said. Even though Olena Oak has reached the top of the all-time money-earners list, Emmons assured his fans that the stallion will not fade out of the spotlight. “He’s never going to retire. I’m not, so why should he? We’ve got to go back to the World’s Greatest one more time!” Emmons said, laughing. He and Olena Oak have won the World’s Greatest Horseman Championship together twice, while Dilday and Topsails Rien Maker have won it three times.

Carol Rose Quarter Horses Sponsors NRCHA/National High School Rodeo Alliance Courtesy of Carol Rose

Leading performance horse breeder Carol Rose

S

he has achieved nearly every major accolade in the Western performance horse industry, and now, legendary horsewoman and NRCHA Hall of Fame member Carol Rose has become the official sponsor of the NRCHA’s alliance with the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA). Rose, whose Gainesville, Texas, breeding operation is the home of champion Quarter Horses including NRCHA $3.7 Million Sire Shining Spark (Genuine Doc x Diamonds Sparkle x Mr Diamond Dude), has announced a five-year commitment to fund the implementation of NHSRA Cow Horse, newly added to the high school rodeo

event lineup in 2014. The first NHSRA Cow Horse Champion was crowned at the National High School Rodeo Finals, July 13-19, in Rock Springs, Wyoming. R ose’s late mother, Elizabeth McCabe, was deeply committed to youth horsemanship, and co-founded the 4-H horse program in the early 1950s. Rose shares her mother’s passion, and the NRCHA Youth program has been a priority throughout her long history with the association. “When I was on the NRCHA Board of Directors, I wanted to do everything we could to make the Youth bigger and better. I thought about it non-stop. When I found out about the new program between the NRCHA and the High School Rodeo Association, I got very excited about it. I knew right away that I wanted to be involved,” she said. The desire to unite rodeo and reined cow horse is natural for Rose, who appreciates the rough-and-ready qualities of both disciplines. “Our reined cow horse event fits with rodeo. This event is for serious cowboys. You’ve got to be able to ride. It’s exciting to do and exciting to watch. I have seen those high school rodeo contestants make some fabulous runs down the fence. They don’t have any fear!” she said. Rose also regards the NRCHA/ NHSRA partnership as an opportunity to rejuvenate the versatility of the

American Quarter Horse and encourage growth in the NRCHA. “These sports are so family-friendly and accessible. All you need are a saddle and bridle, a pair of chaps and a hat, and a horse. This program gives us an opportunity to bring back the versatility of the Quarter Horse and encourage the whole family to get involved by doing multiple events like barrel racing, roping, and cow horse on the same horse. It’s not impossible. It takes a good-minded horse to do it, but that’s what we raise – good-minded horses,” she said. “I feel that, by adding the reined cow horse event to high school rodeo, we have created the largest opportunity in a long time for the entire cow horse industry to grow.” To read more about Carol Rose Quarter Horses and the indelible impression Rose has made on the equine industry, visit her website at www.CarolRose.com. The National High School Rodeo Association has more than 10,500 members from 41 states, five Canadian provinces and Australia.

Ward Ranch Raffle Filly

So Cute will go to her new owner well started under saddle by Ward Ranch assistant trainer Chris Krieg and with a paid entry to the 2016 Snaffle Bit Futurity.

The 2015 Raffle Filly, donated by the historic Ward Ranch, is So Cute.

T

he 2015 NRCHA 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 the 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 division. 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, Nevada. Ticket buyers do not need to be present to win. The Ward Ranch has contributed a total of 27 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 Snaffle Bit Futurity, half of which is put into the

NRCHA 2-Year-Old Select Sale Purse, an incentive 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 Tonto’s 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, according to EquiStat. She also went on to produce 10 performing foals that have earned nearly $75,000 in cutting, cow horse. and reining.

“I’m just so proud because of all the circumstances that have happened around this horse. I thank Chris so much for the outstanding job.”–Carol Rose

T

A 223.5 in the cow work clinched Reys A Shine and Chris Dawson’s NRCHA Derby Open Championship.

he National Reined Cow Horse Association rolled into Paso Robles, Calif., for the NRCHA Derby June 15-20 and the action would have made the vaqueros that inspired the equine discipline proud. The Paso Robles Event Center hosted the largest and richest cow horse event for 4- and 5-year-olds, and nine divisions offered a competitive place for all levels of horsemen. The $50,000-added CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, sponsored by Holy Cow Performance Horses, enticed some of the best bridle horses to California and provided fans the opportunity to cheer on runs that lived up to the spectacular billing. In the middle of California horse country, the nation’s best 4- and 5-year-old reined cow horses descended to showcase their talents in hopes of taking home a title and their share of the limitedage event’s added money that totaled $130,000. With $100,000 added in the Open and $25,000 added in the Non Pro, the competition in the arena rose to the occasion. It took a 651.5 or better to advance to the clean-slate finals for the Open. The talented field of 20 Open finalists included a list of the best horses and riders including 2014 Derby Open Champions Hickory Holly Time and

Kelby Phillips. They topped the preliminaries, but a tough run down the fence ended their hopes of repeating.

Open Champion Chris Dawson started the year with Reys A Shine (Dual Rey x Lil Miss Shiney Chex x Shining Spark) at a bit of a disadvantage. Dawson showed the horse for the first time at the Sun Circuit in January, and he described him as acting like a 2-year-old. But in the horse’s defense, while most of his competition prepped for the major events, Reys A Shine made laps on the walker with his future tied up in the courts. Bred by Carol Rose, the stallion was auctioned at Rose’s dispersal sale, but lack of payment left the horse in litigation. “I’m just so proud because of all the circumstances that have happened around this horse,” Rose said. “I thank Chris so much for the outstanding job. If it wasn’t for Don Murphy and Guillermo Perez, this wouldn’t have happened. “For 15 months this horse was tied up in litigation, and Don coached Guillermo to get him broke,” Rose added. “This is the horse’s third horse show. I think this is the first horse that I’ve owned - that I still owned - that won a major event. I’m just so proud of Chris and Sarah and Chris’ help at home.”

///////// NRCHA Derby Reys A Shine’s finals composite score of 666.5 (219.5 herd/223.5 rein/223.5 cow) won the Derby Open title after he and Dawson picked up the Open Novice title earlier in the week. “I know he’s an awfully good horse, and we’ve just been trying to figure out how to get him at the shows as good as he’s been at home - he’s just so green,” Dawson said. “We’ve been trying to work on that plan. He’s real quiet and a goodminded horse.” Dawson brought the horse out to California early to school on herd work with Justin Wright and he also got some advice at the Derby from Murphy. “He’s real quiet and a good minded horse,” Dawson said. “Don Murphy told me to make sure that I woke that rascal up before I showed him, and he was on the money in the herd yesterday.” Dawson and Reys A Shine, who earned the winner’s share $31,408.14, sealed the championship with the fence work.

“That cow came out in the fence work tonight and I knew that we needed to be good because there had been a lot of good runs,” Dawson said. “We were sitting in a good place. I just tried to be as smart as I could right there. It’s real easy to get yourself in a bind when you get ready to go down the fence in that position. I knew that cow from the herd and I liked him in the settle but he ended up being kind of stupid and I remembered that he was stupid and he acted stupid on the end because he wouldn’t ever get ahold of my horse very good so I stayed there a little longer than probably people expected me to. He’s been a pleasure to train and I’m really excited about showing him next year.” Rose and Dawson think they might have found the secret to success. “Gabriel Gonzalez worked for Carol for 27 years, and he worked there when I worked there,” Dawson said. “He came out here as kind of a special trip with

Sonita Lena Rey and Nicholas Barthelemy had the highest score in the herd work and also topped the cow work before finishing as the Derby Open Reserve Championships. They won the Intermediate Open for owner Sheri Jamieson.

Carol, and he put a little magic on that rascal, I think.”

Intermediate Open Nicolas Barthelemy was more than 6,000 miles from his native New Caledonia, French islands in the southwest Pacific Ocean, but he looked right at home riding Sheri Jamieson’s Sonita Lena Rey (Dual Rey x Sonita Lena Chick x Smart Chic Olena) to the Reserve Championship in the Derby Open and the Intermediate Open Championship. Barthelemy and Sonita Lena Rey earned the highest marks in the finals in the herd and fence work, ending their run circling nose-to-nose with the cow. They ended just one and one-half points behind the leaders with a composite score of 664 (223 herd/ 216 rein/ 225 cow). The 4-year-old stallion earned $29,685.87 for the effort. Discovered by the late Yvon Mathieu at a clinic in New Caledonia, Bathelemy received an invitation to come train with Mathieu in the United States, and he planned to return home after a short stay. After Mathieu passed away from Lou Gehrig’s disease, a disorder also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Jamieson asked Bathelemy to continue training for her. Since then, Bathelemy’s roots have grown deeper, just like his slides, into the United States reined cow horse family. Jamieson purchased the stallion, who was bred by Jim Holmes of Colorado, as a late yearling from Cottonwood Springs Ranch’s dispersal sale. “As soon as we got him out, we knew that we had something there,” Barthelemy said. “We knew that was a horse that we wanted to get. Since then it’s been a blast training him. We’re looking forward to more.” Barthelemy and Sonita Lena Rey captivated the crowd with their cow work and the judges rewarded the effort.

“He’s a big stopping horse and if he can stay together mentally with me, then he can be good.” –Richard Winters

Richard Winters kept Bugs Boony calm and collected during the rein work to mark a 218, contributing to their Limited Open Championship with a composite score of 647.5.

“When the cow came out, I just wanted to make sure that the cow would get a hold of him and he was right with it,” Barthelemy said. “As soon as the cow came out, his ears went forward and when the cow broke, he went right with it. I knew we had a game going on. I can’t give you the rest of it because I was just riding along. You couldn’t ask any more of that horse today. He gave everything that he had, and I’m really grateful.” Following his success at the Derby, Barthelemy expressed his appreciation to Jamieson for her unending support and confidence and also his herd help, Brad Barkemeyer, Chris Dawson, Corey Cushing and Todd Bergen. “It was the opportunity of a lifetime,” Bathelemy said of the opportunity to train for Jamieson. “Today, I can finally say thank you in my own way.”

Limited Open Chris Dawson won the Open title, but he also got kudos from his father-in-law, Richard Winters, for his part in starting Bugs Boony (Peptoboonsmal x Shiney Tari x Shining Spark). Winters, who won the 2009 Road to the Horse - Colt Starting Challenge, showed Bugs Boony to the Limited Open title. “This is a horse that we acquired from what was to be my future son-in-law at the end of his 3-year-old year,” Winters said. “Our daughter Sarah married Chris Dawson. He showed this horse very successfully at the Futurity. We were looking for an aged-event horse, and purchased the horse from him. We’ve been showing him this last year and trying to get to know him. I had some good success at the Hackamore Classic with him a few weeks ago.

“To come here and get a little piece of it in the Limited Open is exciting,” Winters added. “I certainly want to thank Chris and Sarah for not only all the hard work that they’ve done with that horse, but coaching me with the horse since I’ve had him. The tables have been turned.” Winters and Bugs Boony earned $5,510.40 after compiling a composite score of 647.5 (210 herd/ 218 rein/ 219.5 cow). Winters describes the 5-year-old gelding as a “pistol.” “He’s just a pocket rocket wired into 220 all the time, and it’s taken me really over a year just to get to know him and learn how to manage him,” Winters said. “There’s no cow that will beat him down the fence. He’s got plenty of speed, but to keep him quiet and calm during the rein work can be a little bit tricky. Today he went out there and did it so that was pretty cool. “He could be a really great cutting horse,” Winters added. “That’s probably my weakest event so we just got by and kept our head above water and marked a 210. We didn’t get in any trouble. I thought for the Limited Open, that’s fine, but I knew that I’d have to step up my game when we went into the reining He’s a big stopping horse and if he can stay together mentally with me, then he can be good.” With the Limited Open title secured and their partnership gelling, Winters has even bigger plans for Bugs Boony’s future. “We’re anxious later in the year to start riding him in the two rein following the vaquero tradition there and make a bridle horse out of him. I’ve only made

At the NRCHA Derby, the 4-year-old gelding made double runs on the final day of the Derby, with Russell Probert in the Limited Open finals and with J.J. in the Non Pro finals. Earlier in the week Justa Doin It and Probert won the Level 1 Limited Open with a composite score of 640.5 (212 herd/213 rein/215.5 cow).

“Reined Cow Horse competitions can be grueling. It takes a mentally and physically tough horse to make it to the finals.”

Justa Doin It and Russell Probert just keep winning. They followed up wins at the NRCHA Stallion Stakes with the Level 1 Limited Open title in Paso Robles.

–Jayson Fisher J.J. describes the horse as “pretty casual,” which helps him do double duty. With the Level 1 Limited Open title, Justa Doin It added $3,444 to his earnings. At the NRCHA Stallion Stakes in Las Vegas, the 4-year old won the Limited Open title with Probert and also won the Non Pro title with J.J. “Reined Cow Horse competitions can be grueling,” J.J. said following the Non Pro finals in Paso Robles. “It takes a mentally and physically tough horse to make it to the finals.” It takes an even more exceptional horse to do that times two. “He’s a great horse,” J.J. said. “He’s the same horse every time. He’s just a little bit tired today so he didn’t show as well as he could have. I plan on keeping him. We’re just going to go to me and my family showing him from now on.

we have instead of him doing double duty.” Justa Doin It’s trademark is his consistency. “He was solid in all three events,” J.J. said. “He’s not anything that’s going to be huge in any one event, but he’s good in all of them. He’s consistent. He’s a ’13, ’14, ’15 every time in the reining. His herd work is probably the most difficult for him that he struggles with, but you know it could be partly me being nervous a little bit out there, too, and riding a little different. I don’t blame it all on him. He’s a great horse. “If they can withstand this stuff that we do to them, they are great,” J.J. added.

“He’s got to perform at a different level for Russell, and he made it back in the Limited Open, and he was a half point out of the Intermediate this time.” Reined cow horse competitions are a family affair for the Fishers, and Justa Doin It will continue training and showing with the family. “He’s a good horse,” J.J. said. “He’s got a good mind. He’s fun to ride – he’s easy. He’s easygoing. Peponic horses are normally a little bit hotter, but he’s not. He’s the right kind for sure. We’re going to make him a bridle horse for my wife because hers is getting older so we’re going to try to make another one. Normally we ride them young and sell

them because we like doing the younger aged events, but he might be a keeper that we keep for a while. And he’s gorgeous and that doesn’t hurt.”

///////// NRCHA Derby

Amateur

Gregg Lafitte’s hard work in learning to show a horse two-handed paid off when he piloted Shes Playin Rey to the NRCHA Derby Amateur Championship.

picking up the Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro and the Novice Non Pro titles. Earlier in the year at the NRCHA Stallion Stakes in Las Vegas, the team finished as reserve champs in the Non Pro and won the Intermediate and Novice titles. Due to a 187 in the preliminary herd work, Kania was left wondering if she’d make the finals at all in Paso Robles. When the preliminary scores were tallied, she and Uno What Time It Flo ranked ninth, and the clean-slate finals gave the pair a fresh start to shine. “The finals herd work was better than the prelims,” Kania said with a laugh when running through her finals classes. “I had a disaster in the prelims so I’m lucky that I even made the finals.”

The 5-year-old mare had a composite score of 645.5 (214.5 herd/ 217 rein/ 214 cow), and her three titles came with combined earnings of $12,451.51. Owned by Elizabeth’s mother, Renee DuBois, Uno What Time It Flo was trained by Todd Crawford and purchased from Crawford in December of her 3-year-old year. “He showed her as a 3-year-old, and I’ve been showing her ever since,” Kania said. Kania says the mare is a favorite in the barn and describes her as being easy going and a quick learner. Kania will be doing her own learning for the next few years, but she’s definitely got future plans for her champion mare. “I want to ride her in the bridle when I get done with school,” Kania said.

While Gregg Lafitte’s non-horse friends might not quite understand what he does at NRCHA events, Laffitte and Shes Playin Rey (TR Dual Rey x Playin Acre x Playin Stylish) are doing just fine in the arena. Lafitte’s friends are known to wish him well at his “barrel races,” and he has another trophy as proof of his success. Lafitte and Shes Playin Rey won the NRCHA Derby Amateur title with a composite score of 633.5 (207 herd/212.5 rein/214 cow). The 5-year-old mare added $1,363.80 to her bankroll and also punched a ticket to the finals in the Derby Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro and Novice Non Pro finals at the event. Not too bad for an exhibitor who traded his hobbies of golf and spending time at the lake for horses nine years ago at the age of 50. Lafitte, who lives near Dallas, Texas, wasn’t planning on making the trip to California, but a successful show in Colorado changed his mind. “I’ve been struggling along trying to learn the two-handed thing, and it just wasn’t coming easy, Lafitte said. “We decided to go to Pueblo and had a good show there – I won the Amateur there and made the Non Pro finals. We decided to come, and I’m glad we did.” Lafitte purchased “Jessie” from Don Murphy, who describes the mare as one of the “quicker footed horses” that he’s ever had in his barn. “It’s good and bad,” Lafitte said of the mare’s quickness. “What’s been so difficult for me is trying to stay on her. Last summer, when I was trying to start riding her a little bit, she spun me off twice in one day, and then stood there and laughed at me. She’s extremely athletic and quick-footed, but easy. Her mind is just incredible. She’s learning what it’s like when we’re going into the show pen she changes her attitude a little bit. She’s a great little horse. ”

///////// NRCHA Derby

Claire Armstrong followed up a successful showing at the NRCHA Hackamore Classic with a win in the Non Pro Limited at the NRCHA Derby aboard Hal O Matic.

Lafitte thanked his wife, Jahn, for supporting him and said that the adjustment from riding a bridle horse to two-handed has been an adjustment. “I’ve had a couple of bridle horses that I’ve shown, but moving into this two-handed hackamore and snaffle bit has been a change – a big change. It’s quite a challenge for me,” Lafitte said. “I’ve been struggling along trying to learn the two-handed thing and it just wasn’t coming easy.” Lafitte’s obviously figuring things out and he’s got a new trophy to prove it.

Non Pro Limited Social media has fans and detractors, and is credited with starting many relationships. Claire Armstrong found a partner through Facebook, and judging by her smile and her trophy, she’s happy with the connection although she wasn’t completely sold at first. Armstrong and Hal O Matic (Halreycious x Miss Hickory Hill x Doc’s Hickory) earned a composite score of 643 (213 herd/209.5 rein/220.5 cow) to win the Non Pro Limited title. “I found her on Facebook,” Armstrong said. “I went to look at her at the National Cutting Horse [Association] Futurity. Tom

(Neel) and I went out and looked at her. I had a couple of test rides on her and I wasn’t really sure, but they had a lot of confidence in her. Tom taught her everything. She didn’t know anything about the reining or any of that. I’ve had her about a year and a half now. “To be honest, when I looked at her she wasn’t real smooth to lope in the reining,” Armstrong added. “I rode reiners growing up and she wasn’t super pretty to look at at first in my opinion. She was kind of the ugly duckling, but I think that she’s beautiful now. I was just used to more finesse with the reiners. When I went to look at a cutter it was a huge difference. She wasn’t clipped or anything. Now I love her to pieces.” Hal O Matic, who picked up a check for $1,876.20, now has the distinction of being the first cow horse money earner for Halreycious. “It’s a dream come true,” Armstrong said. “I’ve had her a year and a half, and I’ve learned all the way. I had never done herd work until I got this horse. It’s been awesome learning. Tom has taught me everything that I know, and it’s been great.” The pair won the same title at the NRCHA Hackamore Classic. “Everybody here is just super friendly and encouraging,” Armstrong said. “Some of my competitors went out and took a picture with me. I’ve done all around a long time with palominos and paints and this group here is the most supportive group of people. It really is. I know that you hear that a lot, but it’s impressive. “I want to say a big thank you to Tom, Lorna, Jennifer and James Neel and my husband,” Armstrong added. “He goes to all these horse shows with me and he’s not a big horse person. He’s just super supportive and keeps up with the scores and always just helps. The Neels are just an awesome family. They are like a second family to me.”

here’s a saying about Jay McLaughlin and CD Dee a broken record playVee Dee are dominating the Open Bridle Spectacular ing the same old song, ranks in 2015. but for Jay McLaughlin and CD Dee Vee Dee, winning bridle events is sweet music. Jay McLaughlin and CD Dee Vee Dee (CD Lights x Shiners Missy Jay x Shining Spark) added a third verse to their 2015 winning song. The duo added the CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, sponsored by Holy Cow Performance Horses, to their impressive resumés. “I blew a left stirrup on the first turn, Coming into the cow work in third and going to the second turn off the place after marking a 219 in the herd fence, I told him I’d look for my stirrup and a 220.5 in the reining, the 10-year- if he’d turn it,” McLaughlin said with old gelding trotted to the end of the a laugh. arena with his ears pricked and ready After spending his early career with to showcase his ability to spellbind a the McLaughlins, CD Dee Vee Dee cow. And perform he did. As the horn rejoined the family as 11-year-old Cutter blew, CD Dee Vee Dee had the cow McLaughlin’s partner and mentor. Jay performing tight circles in the middle and his wife, Wendy, are listed as the of the arena, and McLaughlin raised horse’s owners, and the first words one finger above his head to signify McLaughlin said to reporters after the that regardless of what scores would victory was, “He paid for himself in soon be announced, he believed CD three horse shows.” McLaughlin didn’t Dee Vee Dee was No. 1. disclose the horse’s sale price to his wife Earning a 227 for the cow work, the until she wrote the check to purchase judges agreed.

the McLaughlin family is happy to have CD Dee Vee Dee back in the barn. “The only reason I show him at these shows is to have an excuse for Cutter to bring him,” McLaughlin said. “We’ve had some luck. We’re not trying to win every one of them, but we get here, ride him around, he feels good, so OK, let’s go. I’m just tickled pink. Cutter’s won two world titles on him, and that’s fine by me. When we haul him around, it’s for him to show, not for me to show. He loves this horse.” While McLaughlin wants to showcase CD Dee Vee Dee’s best, he always keeps in mind that Cutter will be the next to step into the saddle. “The herd work was the same as he is everywhere,” McLaughlin said. “He has been a 73 in the herd every time we’ve shown this year. He’s not like your typical cutter, but you can’t kick him by a cow so you’re pretty safe that way. I always try to think about Cutter showing him next. He has the AQHA Youth World coming up, and so I didn’t mash the gas in the reining. I was trying to be a little conservative. I didn’t want to get the motor running too much because we only have a month to fix it.” With $50,000 added, the CD Survivor Memorial Open Bridle Spectacular victory added $25,500 to the accomplished gelding’s lifetime earnings.

///////// NRCHA Hackamore Classic

I

n the competitive reined cow horse arena, fortunes can rise or fall faster than the flick of a heifer’s ear. Husband-and-wife team Shawn and Tammy Jo Hays - he is a professional trainer; she is the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s (NRCHA) current No. 1 Non Pro - know that as well as anyone. When the couple arrived in Pueblo, Colorado, for the NRCHA Hackamore Classic, April 29-May 3, they were intent on rebounding from the disappointment each had felt at the last Premier Event, the NRCHA Stakes, a month earlier in Las Vegas. Shawn and Tammy Jo also realized that the quickest path out of a slump is a positive outlook and single-minded focus on the task at hand. These mental techniques, along with some superior performances, helped the couple collect multiple championships at the NRCHA’s Premier Event for 4- and 5-year-old hackamore horses.

Bouncing Back Shawn and Red River Rivalry (Soula Jule Star x Shiners Miss Lena x Shining Spark), a 2011 stallion owned by Tammy Jo and her father, Walt Greeman, won every Open and Intermediate Open class they entered in Pueblo. In addition to the Hackamore Classic Open and Intermediate Open titles, Shawn and “Red” also collected wins in the new ancillary Pueblo Derby, which could be entered concurrently with the Hackamore Classic or separately for horses showing in the snaffle bit; and the Open Hackamore horse show class, which ran concurrently with the Hackamore Classic. Including go-round money, Red River Rivalry’s overall winnings totaled $21,900. It was the first Hackamore Classic title for Shawn, a Nocona, Texas, professional with more than $384,000 in NRCHA earnings. The success validated his belief in Red River Rivalry. While the stal-

lion’s ability was never in question, Red encountered some hard luck at other major shows in his young career. Shawn debuted the stallion at the 2014 Southwest Reined Cow Horse Association Futurity, where he won the Open Championship and had the high score in all three events. However, Lady Luck did not smile on the pair at the Snaffle Bit Futurity in Reno, Nevada, last year. “We were sitting real good. We just had to be a 209 or 210 down the fence to make the finals, but we hung up on the fence [incurring a 3-point penalty per judge] and didn’t make the finals,” Shawn said. In February, at the Celebration of Champions Derby, Shawn and Red River Rivalry made the finals, but again had trouble down the fence, which cost them the championship. The pair made the Open and Intermediate Open finals at the NRCHA Stakes in Las Vegas, but a lead-change bobble in the rein work cost them a spot among the top money-earners. That mistake was in Shawn’s mind as he showed Red in Pueblo. The Hackamore Classic required exhibitors to show first in the rein work, then the herd work, and finally, the prelims cow work. The three preliminary scores carried over into the cow-work-only finals. Without a clean slate for the championship, Hays knew every point counted.

“It doesn’t matter if you win by 10 points or a half a point. A win’s a win.”—Shawn Hays “I was a little nervous to run him real hard here [at the Hackamore Classic] in the reining. I was conservative and only marked a 143. I had one miss in the cutting and went from a 146 to a 144, so I gave up a couple of points there. Especially at these events with just one

go round and the fence-only finals, it’s not like everybody starts back from zero. I was thinking, shoot, I have quite a bit of ground to make up, and then I drew a real good cow in the prelims fence work and that little horse was really good. That helped us jump up.” The 150 score in the cow work prelims put Shawn and Red in first place by a half-point heading into the cow-workonly finals, where they scored a 145, maintaining that half-point margin for the win. “I was hoping to be a little bigger in the finals. You always want to finish up with a huge bang. I feel like I had a good right turn, my left turn was pretty good, and I kind of lost a little bit of power steering circling to the right. I didn’t get circled as

well as I wanted to that direction. Then he came back and circled huge to the left. That cow was pushing on us the whole time, and the degree of difficulty was there. It doesn’t matter if you win by 10 points or a half a point. A win’s a win,” Shawn said, smiling. He first saw Red River Rivalry on paper when his breeder, legendary horsewoman Carol Rose, published the catalog for her October 2012 production sale in Gainesville, Texas. Shawn had a feeling he would click with the royally bred yearling, whose pedigree reminded him of CGS Starscommand (Soula Jule Star x Sparkcommand x Shining Spark). Shawn trained and showed successfully that 2007 gelding, winning the 2012 Celebration of Champions Derby Open and Intermediate Open in San Angelo, Texas. “That cross has worked well for me - Soula Jule Star and Shining Spark on the bottom. [Red River Rivalry] has been easy from the get go. He doesn’t want to get in trouble, he’s real athletic, got a good move, he’s just been an easy horse to train, and it’s kind of spoiled me,”

Shawn Hays and Red River Rivalry collected the Hackamore Classic Open and Intermediate Open Championships, highlighted by a 150 score in the preliminary cow work.

The Hackamore Classic Open Reserve Champion was Reys Stressin Melody (Reys Dual Badgers x Playguns Melody x Playgun), a 2011 mare shown by Matt Koch for breeder/ owner Wagonhound Land and Livestock, also an NRCHA Breeder Sponsor. The pair won the cow work prelims with a big 152 score.

Shawn said. “He’s finally starting to get solid, and I’m finding all the holes I need to fix.” He started Red in the hackamore last winter, and was pleased with the stallion’s response. “He’s wanted to be soft and light in his nose from the get-go. I just had to show him how to find the middle of it. He’s had maybe 120 days in the hackamore, at most. I like the hackamore. It dang sure finds your holes. It gets the horses more broke and ready for a bridle, and that transition’s a good deal,” he said. Shawn thanked his herd help, his wife, and his father-in-law for the partnership on Red River Rivalry. He also appreciated the guidance of NRCHA Hall of Fame horseman Don Murphy, who has advised and coached him for years.

A Matter of Trust Developing Truly Screyumptious (Dual Smart Rey x Meleena Olena x Smart Chic Olena) into a champion reined cow horse has been the greatest thrill and the greatest challenge Wade Meador

has encountered in his horse training career. “She’s by far the best horse I’ve ever had to show to this point, but she’s been a project, because she’s super feely and sensitive. It took a long time to get her trust and get her solid. She’s always been real cow smart and athletic, but she’s also like my nemesis, because if one little thing goes wrong, it takes away from the big picture,” Meador said. “Trudy” reads a cow brilliantly, and after Meador started off her Hackamore Classic performance with a a 139.5 in the rein work, he knew the little mare’s best two events were yet to come. She did not disappoint, working her way to a solid 145 in the herd work and making jaws drop with a stunning 151 run in the cow work prelim - the second-highest Open fence work score overall. “She’s so quick footed and cowy. You just put her on that cow and wait, and she takes care of the rest of it. It’s easy for her, and she’s smart,” Meador said. “The good ones teach you what it’s supposed to be like. They teach you how to stay out of their way and let

them do their job. You don’t teach that. You just put them in the right spot and they take care of the rest of it. It feels amazing.” The former assistant trainer to NRCHA Two Million Dollar Rider Todd Crawford picked Truly Screyumptious out of the crowd at the 2012 National Cutting Horse Association Futurity Sales in Fort Worth, Texas, when she was a yearling. On Meador’s advice, Larry and Michelle Rice of Flag Ranch, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, purchased her. “She went fairly cheap. Larry put his trust in me,” Meador said, adding that although the filly was agitated and fractious at the sale, she had an unforgettable quality. “When you find that special one that grabs you and says, ‘Look at me. Come back to me…’ that’s what she was.” Meador thanked his wife, Kori, and the Rices for being “some of the most outstanding owners you could ever have.” He also appreciated the profes-

“I can’t complain. She didn’t really do much wrong. The mistakes in the herd were all my own.” —Tammy Jo Hays

Tammy Jo Hays kept her head in the game and SDP Got Fancy Genes kept her eye on the cow. The result was the Hackamore Classic Non Pro Championship. Primo Morales

Championship on her stellar performer Two Kitties (Smooth As A Cat x SR Jaguar x Doc O’Lena), the mare she had guided to the 2013 NRCHA Stakes Non Pro Championship a few short weeks before. Tammy Jo admitted she did not ride that same wave of confidence into Pueblo in 2015. “It was a little different this time around,” she said. “This horse-showing thing is a roller coaster!” The NRCHA Stakes, where she had fallen short of her goal to capture a third consecutive Non Pro Championship and instead settled for eighth place on SDP Got Fancy Genes, her Hackamore Classic mount, was still fresh in Tammy Jo’s mind. Her herd work aboard “Fancy” in Pueblo also left her disappointed - she chose her first cow poorly, and the difficult animal hurt her score and left her with some ground to make up heading into the finals. “I got humbled the last time I showed [at the Stakes]. I got a little humble about my run in the herd work here. I had to have a little talk with myself about that. I told myself to keep plodding on and keep going after it.” Tammy Jo said her 2010 mare SDP Got Fancy Genes (RC Fancy Step x SDP I Got Good Genes x Dual Rey), proved herself in Pueblo. “I didn’t show her here last year. She surprised me. I didn’t think she would be a good hackamore horse. I should have spent more time on her. We only had about three weeks. I was pleasantly surprised, so we entered up. I can’t complain. She didn’t really do much wrong. The mistakes in the herd were all my own,” Tammy Jo said.

The success was even sweeter for Bill Tointon, who rode homebred Shinee Hot Wheels to the winner’s circle in Pueblo.

A strong finals cow work score was mandatory for Tammy Jo to capture the Championship, and she delivered under pressure, earning a 146.5 to win the Non Pro title. “I was really delighted with her tonight. She did everything she was supposed to,” Tammy Jo said.

The mother of two, whose lifetime NRCHA earnings are at the $225,000 mark, was visibly thrilled about her own championship, but only became tearful when asked about her husband’s success in Pueblo. “I am so excited for him. This is a big deal. It means way more to me to see him

Greg Lafitte and Shes Playin Rey (TR Dual Rey x Playin Acre x Playin Stylish) not only earned a spot in the Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro and Novice Non Pro finals, they also won the Hackamore Classic Amateur Championship. They scored a composite 424 (140.5 herd/138 rein/145.5 cow). The win paid $1,013. Primo Morales

Her Hackamore Classic title paid $1,395, and the Pueblo Derby Non Pro Limited win added another $543 to her earnings.

Murphy, fresh from hip replacement surgery, for being arena-side to coach her and her husband. “And I always have to thank God. Things could have gone differently for me - and I know it was Him,” she said.

A homebred horse with a special history carried Bill Tointon to the top in the Hackamore Classic Intermediate Non Pro and Novice Non Pro divisions, and to the Reserve Championship position in the Non Pro. Shinee Hot Wheels (Shining Lil Nic x Paymethemoney x Lena My Way) and Tointon were tied for the lead in the preliminaries with a 422 (138 herd/141.5 rein/144.5 cow), and then scored a 138 in the finals fence work for a 562 composite. Tointon also swept all three Non Pro divisions of the concurrent Pueblo Derby, along with the Non Pro Hackamore class. All told, he collected seven paychecks worth more than $7,100. “I can’t stress enough how grateful I am to my wife, Janiejill. She is the one who has made all of this possible. She introduced me to the sport, and she encourages me and supports me. None of this would be possible without her,” Tointon said. Shinee Hot Wheels was raised at Diamond Double T Ranch, the Tointons’ Longmont, Colorado, performance horse facility. He is sired by the couple’s stallion, Shining Lil Nic (Smart Shiner x Dig A Lil Nic x Diggers Rest), and is out of the first cow horse Bill ever showed. “Paymethemoney was a gift to me from Janiejill. She bought her for me and gave her to me as a surprise. I had no idea. She had the mare delivered and put a big ribbon on her stall and that was how I got started with reined cow horses,” he said. The Lena My Way daughter is also the dam of another horse Bill has showed very successfully, Chex Viva Las Vegas, by NMSU Truckin Chex. Besides his wife, Tointon also thanked Murphy and Alzada, Montana, professional Justin Lawrence, who trained Shinee Hot Wheels.

lthough the 4- and 5-year-old hackamore horses received top billing at the NRCHA Hackamore Classic, they share part of the spotlight with the cow horse world’s most highly trained athletes, the bridle horses. These seasoned show veterans competed in the Shining Lil Nic Bridle Spectacular on May 1-2. The event offered $12,500 in added money thanks to a sponsorship by Shining Lil Nic’s owners, Janiejill and Bill Tointon of Diamond Double T Ranch, Longmont, Colo. Competitors showed in three demanding events: herd work, rein work and cow work. The combined score determined the champions in the Open, Non Pro, Novice Non Pro and Non Pro Limited divisions. Shining Lil Nic (Smart Shiner x Dig A Lil Nic x Diggers Rest) is a 2003 stallion with more than $100,000 in NRCHA earnings. He has sired champions, including Hackamore Classic Novice Non Pro and Intermediate Non Pro Champion Shinee Hot Wheels, a homebred gelding shown by Bill Tointon.

The Non Pro Limited Bridle Spectacular Champion was Kristy Miller, who rode Glamors Bling Bling (Shiners Diamond Sun x CD Glamorous Girl x CD Olena) to a total 428.5 (142.5 herd/141.5 rein/144.5 cow), earning $900. Miller also took home a Gist buckle and a custom sheet from Classic Equine. She also won the Non Pro Limited horse show class, augmenting her winnings by another $630.

Rios of Mercedes is one of the last truly handmade all leather boots produced in the United States. There is no secret to making top quality boots. All you need is the finest leather and true bootmakers with years of experience and the desire to be the best at their craft. Rios has remained true to its roots by making boots for folks who are involved in performance and working horses, raise livestock and in general make their living outdoors. Rios has never cheapened their product by taking shortcuts, lowering standards or chasing fashion trends. We make boots for people who know what a pair of boots is intended for: all day comfort whether horseback or afoot. Rios of Mercedes is famous for fit. Most people who experience the fit of a pair of Rios are customers for life. The lasts, dies and cutting patterns used by Rios of Mercedes have developed over the last 150 years until we now have refined the fit to one of comfort yet the boot is not loose on the foot. But these refinements are not only in lasts and patterns but are evident in the details of fine stitching, the hand lasting and the care in sole trimming, heel shape and the balance of the boot. The old fashioned channeled leather welt is the only method that will give a boot that slim profile to the foot that all too often is lost when the maker uses synthetic insoles and synthetic box toes. To our way of thinking this is what gives value to our product and renders it unique in today¹s cookie cutter world. Visit riosofmercedes.com to see some of the styles we offer through our retailers. If you are looking for a retailer one can be found on that same website. Rios of Mercedes, the Official Boot of the National Reined Cow Horse Association.

prevention

Stephanie Duquette

The two main methods of prevention to help avoid disease outbreak on ranches or at shows are vaccination and biosecurity protection.

With fresh cases of EHV-1 cropping up across the country, the official NRCHA veterinarian urges caution, not panic, and offers simple preventative measures.

I

t is a perennial story, sometimes accompanied by terrifying images of debilitated horses in the throes of neurological symptoms resulting from Equine Herpes Virus type-1 (EHV-1). In the worst cases, it results in death or

euthanasia. It’s a horse owner’s nightmare, but according to the NRCHA’s official veterinarian, Joe Carter, DVM, panic and hysteria should take a back seat to prevention and hygiene when addressing horse health during show season. EHV-1 is a contagious virus that can cause respiratory disease, abortion, and occasionally neurologic disease. Most horses have been exposed to it at some point in their lives, and it can lie dormant until stress weakens the immune system.

Carter noted that EHV-1 is nothing new - he’s seen it throughout his 30 years of veterinary practice - but social media has called greater attention to it in recent years. “It’s a type of herpes virus. Your horse can be a herpes carrier. If it gets stressed the right way, all of a sudden it starts showing the symptoms. It may not have caught it from another horse; it may be a carrier. When it flares up, it then can spread from horse to horse,” Carter said. “It’s a common virus that we are accustomed to dealing with as veteri-

Almost all horses have been infected with the EHV virus at some point in their lives, and have no serious side effects. It is unknown what causes some of the horses to develop the serious neurological forms that may be fatal.

narians and horse show managers. We get excited when we hear about the nervous system form of the disease.” Common sense and simple prevention are effective weapons against not only EHV-1, but also against other communicable illnesses, he said.

“Anything that we consider standard biosecurity measures helps to control EHV-1. All the major horse show facilities disinfect, but it doesn’t hurt to do another little round, whether it’s with bleach, Pine-Sol®, or some other disinfectant you buy from your feed store

EHV-1 can be spread indirectly through contact with physical objects like buckets and bits. Veterinarians recommend disinfecting these items as a preventative measure.

///////// FAQ: Equine Herpes Virus Type-1 Courtesy of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (www.aaep.org) What is equine herpes virus (EHV)? EHV are viruses that are found in most horses all over the world. Almost all horses have been infected with the virus and have no serious side effects. It is unknown what causes some horses to develop the serious neurological forms that may be fatal. To date, nine EHVs have been identified worldwide. Three of these - EHV-1, EHV-3, and EHV-4 - pose the most serious health risks for domesticated horses. Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) is another name for the neurologic disease associated with equine herpesvirus (EHV) infections. How does EHV-1 spread? EHV-1 is contagious and spread by direct horse-to-horse contact via the respiratory tract through nasal secretions. This disease can also be spread indirectly through contact with physical objects contaminated with the virus, such as water buckets, tack, trailers, etc. The virus can be airborne, although it is difficult to establish how far it can spread in this manner. It is estimated to be viable for up

to seven days in the environment under normal circumstances, but may remain alive for a maximum of one month under perfect environmental conditions. What are some of the signs of EHV? After infection, the incubation period may be as short as 24 hours. Incubation is typically four to six days, but can be longer. EHV-1 typically causes a biphasic (two-phase) fever, peaking on day one or two, and again on day six or seven. With respiratory infections, there is often nasal discharge, but not much coughing. With the neurologic form, there are typically minimal respiratory signs, with fever (rectal temperature greater than 102 degrees F) being the only warning sign. Neurologic disease appears suddenly and is usually rapidly progressing, reaching its peak intensity within 24 to 48 hours from onset of neurologic signs. Clinical signs of the neurologic disease may include nasal discharge, incoordination, hind limb weakness, loss of tail tone, lethargy, urine dribbling, head tilt, difficulty balancing, and inability to rise.

or vet. Cleaning and disinfecting your stalls is always good, because there are other diseases we’re trying to prevent, like flu and strangles. Bring your own clean and disinfected feed and water

tubs, and disinfect bits between horses,” Carter said. While there is no specific, approved vaccine against EHV-1, Carter said the consensus in the veterinary community is that keeping horses current on their influenza and rhinopneumonitis vaccines help them fight off the virus. “Make sure your horse has booster shots, make sure you disinfect, make sure you go to events that disinfect their facilities. These are all measures you can take to make sure your horse stays healthy,” he said. “If your horse looks like it’s getting sick when you’re getting ready to go to the horse show, obviously you don’t want to haul them sick. A little common sense goes a long way toward keeping horses healthy,” Carter said. The Paso Robles Event Center (PREC), home of the NRCHA Derby, has never had a neurologic EHV-1 case, according to the facility’s Chief Operating Officer, Vivian Robertson. She said the PREC has “religiously” used the agricultural disinfectant SynBioNT since 2011, when EHV-1 concerns prompted the NRCHA

to move the Derby from its customary June date in Paso Robles to an October date in Queen Creek, Arizona. “The Paso Robles Event Center does everything that we can to try to eliminate the virus from even starting here. SynBioNT is a very strong product, and it’s costly for us, but we take extreme measures because because we care about our partners. Whether it be the NRCHA, the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association, or the National Stock Horse Association - we feel like we’re in partnership with you, and we want to have a clean environment. We go above and beyond to keep that virus out of here,” Robertson said. The entire facility is sprayed thoroughly between events, including the stalls, barns, and common areas where horses congregate while warming up and waiting to show. Signage confirming that the stalls and grounds have been treated with SynBioNT will help reassure exhibitors, Robertson said. “When one show goes out, and before another one comes in, we spray.”

Many show facilites are turning to products such as SynBioNT to disinfect stalls and barns between events. 74 August/September 2015 | Reined Cow Horse News

Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale buyers will have a powerful new tool in 2015 with the unveiling of the Asteris radiograph repository.

T

he anticipation of bidding and buying at the annual NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales can rival the excitement of watching the action in the show pen. Long before arriving in Reno, Nevada, each fall, many shoppers memorize the hip numbers of their favorite yearlings, 2-year-olds, and broodmares, eagerly awaiting the chance to raise their hand at sale time until the gavel falls in their favor. Even the most savvy shoppers know that any horse purchase, whether private or through a sale, comes with some risk. The NRCHA has taken strides toward

Evaluating x-rays before bidding has become the industry standard among horse sale shoppers of nearly every discipline, including reined cow horse.

eliminating that risk and boosting buyer confidence by introducing a new radiograph repository at the upcoming 2015 Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales. The Asteris system, new for the NRCHA in 2015, makes x-rays of sale horses instantly accessible to veterinarians anywhere in the world. Shoppers can make educated decisions using the expert of their choice, according to Joe Carter, DVM, the NRCHA veterinarian and member of the Board of Directors. “It’s awesome. The system allows your hometown veterinarian to access the x-rays at the Futurity Sales and give you advice on whether or not you

should purchase the horse. It will make buyers much more informed and allow them to use their hometown vet, whether or not that vet is physically present at the sale in Reno. Your confidence is always highest with your hometown vet. This is a wonderful service that the sale is providing.” It’s nothing new for horse sale shoppers to perform due diligence by studying x-rays in advance. The radiograph repository practice originated in the racehorse industry and migrated into the Western performance horse world a decade or more ago. The ability to access radiographs at a moment’s notice

via the Asteris repository is a fresh injection of technology for the NRCHA, and it’s expected to benefit both consignors and buyers. Until last year, radiographs were only available on-site at the NRCHA sale. Now, the Asteris system allows veterinarians with login credentials to view x-rays via smartphone, tablet, or computer, anywhere in the world, Carter said. A vet can still do it the old-fashioned way, by viewing x-rays at the kiosk in Reno. With images at their fingertips, buyers will have the freedom to evaluate a horse up until the moment it steps into the sale ring, and then bid with confidence.

With x-rays instantly available via smartphone, tablet or computer, buyers can make snap decisions moments before a horse steps into the sale ring.

“ If you’re at the sale and you see something at the last second, you can literally, three horses before it goes through the ring, pull up the x-rays on your phone and decide if you want to buy it or not, which will be a great service to buyer and seller. When people are able to access that information more easily, and have it in the hands of their trusted veterinarian, they feel more confident. At the sales where they’ve implemented it, the average price improved. It was used at the [National Reining Horse Association Futurity Sale] last year for the first time and was a smashing success,” Carter said. As far as consignors are concerned, nothing has changed, according to Carter. Owners who enroll their reined cow horses in the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales are subject to the same radiograph standards as in years past, which call for 20 total views of the front and hind legs, all taken on the same day, within 30 days of the sale. Images must be digital and placed on one disc. Complete radiograph requirements, sale entry forms, and other information can be found at www.SnaffleBitSales.com.

///////// Hurry, Consignors! Sale Entries Closing Soon

T

he early deadline for Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale entries was July 15, but there is still time to make the catalog, according to Jake Parnell of Parnell Dickinson, the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale management company. “We want people to know that the sooner they enter, the more we can help them by getting their horses in the catalog and promoting them before the sale on our website and Facebook,” he said. “There are some exceptional early consignments, and we are very excited about the quality of cow horses that will be offered at Reno this year.” Two big reasons to buy and sell at the Futurity sales are the incentive purses, which apply to the Select 2-Year-Old Sale horses and to the yearlings in both the Select and Classic sales. A rich $30,000 incentive purse awaits 2-year-olds that change hands at the sales and then return to Reno to show as 3-year-olds in the Snaffle Bit Futurity. Two-thirds of the incentive money goes to horse with the highest composite score in the Open preliminaries, and

one-third goes to the highest-scoring Non Pro horse. The Yearling Purse is for yearlings that are eligible for the NRCHA Stakes and actually sell to a new owner in the Select Yearling & Broodmare Sale or the Classic Yearling & Broodmare Sale. A nomination fee of $250 will pay the yearling up for the Yearling Sale Purse. The $250 payment may be paid by the consignor prior to the Sale or the buyer may pay after the purchase; however, the payment must be made no later than the last day of the NRCHA Futurity. The added money, plus the nomination fees, will be paid to the highestadvancing eligible 3-year-old in the NRCHA Open and Non Pro Futurity preliminaries. For information about the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales, visit Parnell Dickinson on the web at www.SnaffleBitSales.com, or contact them by phone at (916) 806-1919 (John Dickinson); (916) 662-1298 (Jake Parnell), or (805) 431-1267 (Luke Parnell).

///////// NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales

a Brand

By Jill J. Dunkel Cam Essick

The quarter-circle G brand has become synonymous with the quality horses produced by Gardiner Quarter Horses.

C

reating a market for a product involves some trial and error, listening to your customers, promoting what you have, and knowing where to sell. That’s a business lesson Garth and Amanda Gardiner, of Gardiner Quarter Horses, have put to use, creating a market for their reined cow horses. Their story started eight years ago, when the Gardiners decided to take a single filly to the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales. “She was kind of an average filly,” Garth Gardiner said of the filly who was sold through the Classic Sale.

At the time, the Gardiners focused more on rope horses and had not created a name or market in reined cow circles for the horses they were raising. But as their interest in cow horses increased, so did the quality of their breeding program. They added the stallion Hes Wright On (Lenas Wright On x Shesa Lota Nic x Reminic) to their program and other popular cow and cutting sires to their foals’ pedigrees. Those changes, combined with successfully showing in reined cow horse competitions started creating demand for Gardiner-bred horses.

With the pedigrees and demand in place, capitalizing on a demanding market was the logical next step. For the Gardiners, that market is at the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales. “People think we are taking our rejects up there, but for us to continue to survive in this business, we have to take our best ones. It’s kind of our harvest, the sale. The NRCHA does a great job of marketing the sale on the West Coast and the people on the West Coast are very savvy. They know bloodlines, especially the dam side. They follow the performing side of it,” Gardiner said.

“NRCHA clientele put a lot of emphasis on the female side of the pedigree. If they see a great mare, they are willing to invest in the animal and the genetics behind the animal.” Gardiner said they have been fortunate to have some very successful horses in the sales. They have gone from consigning a single filly to the sale to bringing 13 head to Reno, Nevada, this year. “We’ve grown from being fairly small to a bigger operation. It’s something that started out more as a hobby, and now it’s a second full time job,” he said. Their passion is the breeding side of the industry, then seeing those babies grow and marketing them as top prospects.

“Two years ago, when Nick Dowers won the Futurity on a colt he bought from us, that was probably one of our most proud moments as breeders,” Gardiner said. “It’s almost more rewarding to see other people take horses they’ve purchased from us and be successful, than us being successful ourselves.”

Gardiner Ranch-bred Very Blu (Very Smart Remedy x Flo N Blu Boon x Pretty Boy Boon) was one of the Top 10 high sellers at the 2014 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales when she brought a final bid of $47,000 from Beverly Vaughn’s Triangle Bar V Ranch.

Dowers purchased Time For The Diamond (One Time Pepto x Diamonds With Style x Playin Stylish) at the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales as a yearling in 2011. The stallion is just one of several Gardiner-bred horses that have been marketed through the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sales and are currently in the show pen. Gardiner said the success of their breeding program has developed into a recognized “brand” for the type of horses he and his wife raise. To help advertise that brand, all yearlings are branded with the quarter-circle G on their left hip.

Garth and Amanda Gardiner have spent a decade building a brand and creating a market for their well-bred cow horses.

“It’s like a free, walking billboard for the type of horses we produce,” he said. “It’s

something people have started to associate our name with and our horses.”

Brand recognition also comes with a lot of responsibility, he said. “We want those horses to represent our program. The genetics, how we do business and how we treat our customers - it all represents our entire business.” Gardiner also credits quality marketing with helping grow brand recognition. “Cam Essick comes to the ranch and takes photos of our horses. People comment about how good our yearlings look. We want to make them look as good as possible, and Cam’s photos are part of that.” Noting that the reined cow horse industry is a small industry, Gardiner said it’s been a blessing to have tremendous customers that have helped promote his family’s program. “Without those people, we wouldn’t have a program.”

///////// From The Judge’s Chair

Rein Work, Demystified NRCHA Director of Judges Bill Enk discusses the ingredients for a stellar reining pattern.

I

t is important to recognize that the rein work at NRCHA shows looks a little different than a straight reiner at a National Reining Horse Association show. A cow horse is usually more elevated with its carriage and head gear, and not quite as low-headed and loose-reined as most reiners. This is not to say one is better than the other; only that there is a difference. There are variations of this look, from loose reins to tight reins, but it all boils down to the definition of credit. If the cow horse displays smoothness, finesse, attitude, quickness, and speed with form, while being pleasing to watch and willingly guided, it should receive a positive score. There are seven maneuvers in each of the NRCHA rein work patterns that are scored from a +1 1/2 (excellent) to a -1 1/2 (extremely poor). A 0 maneuver score is average (good form but no degree of difficulty), a +1/2 is a good maneuver and a +1 is a very good maneuver. On the negative side, a -1/2 maneuver is poor and a -1 maneuver is very poor. The score of 70 represents an average score - all 0s. A judge’s challenge is to recognize the quality of each maneuver and score it accordingly. The difference in scores among judges usually revolves around the maneuver score of 0 or average. To some judges, the maneuver score of 0 is fairly large, and to others, it isn’t. This results in fluctuations in scores. One judge is being more positive and negative,

while the other is riding the 0 score a little stronger. There are parts to every maneuver that, when averaged, give the most correct and fair answer to each maneuver score. Here’s a breakdown of the maneuvers. The starting point for the circles is in the center of the arena. All the circles and lead changes revolve around this center point. The farther the horse misses the center on each circle and the lead change, the less credit they should receive - to a point. If the horse misses the center just a little bit (like 2- 3 feet on either side of center), or changes leads a little before or a little after the dead center, it might not mean as much when averaged into the quality of the circles. The idea is to come up with the maneuver score that covers all of the maneuver, not just the good or the not so good. On a three-circle pattern with a large fast, small slow, large fast, the parts break down like this: first circle and transition to small slow circle, small slow circle and transition to a large fast circle, large fast circle and lead change. For example, imagine the circles on a lope-in pattern started with the rider hitting center accurately and picking up speed immediately into a large fast circle, displaying good form and some degree of difficulty. Then, he makes the small slow transition about one stride from center and the horse keeps good form during the downward transition. Plus 1/2. The horse makes a nice, consistent, round, small slow circle then increases speed

at center into a large fast circle in 3 to 4 strides. Plus 1/2. The large fast circle is not quite as round as you like, but the horse displays some speed, which shows degree of difficulty, is a touch off center and has a adequate lead change. Soft 0. What’s the answer to the total maneuver? You have two +1/2s and a soft 0. Here’s where the judges with the bigger 0 would go with a 0 maneuver score and the judges with the smaller 0 would go with the +1/2. If this scenario happens on two or three maneuvers, it is easy to see where a where a point spread would evolve. Breaking the maneuvers down in this manner is helpful to come up with a fair score for the total maneuver. The problem is, it will often average out to be a +1/4 or +3/4. Do you always go down or do you go up? Is it a soft 1/2 or a strong 0? This is where focus, knowledge of credit, and a touch of opinion are helpful. Using the score card positively or negatively helps separate horses. Dale Wilkerson, the famous reiner and cutter who helped design the reining score sheet, said, “You have to recognize excellence and reward those characteristics.” Sometimes, on those works that average between 0 and +1/2 or +1/2 and +1, it is easier said than done. To be continued… Bill Enk NRCHA Director of Judges

Carol Rose Quarter Horses Quarter Horse News photo

Carol Rose

T

he history of the Western performance horse, the National Reined Cow Horse Association, and the American Quarter Horse cannot be told without Carol Rose’s name prominently mentioned. Over her lifetime, Rose, an NRCHA Hall of Fame horsewoman, has set records and made tremendous accomplishments as a leading breeder, owner, and competitor. Now, she is establishing a new role as the leading sponsor of the NRCHA’s alliance with the National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA). The Palo Alto, California-born equestrian had horses in her blood from the beginning. Her competitive career in the saddle included nearly every riding discipline, and Rose won the first of countless championships when she was 8. She went on to be crowned the San Francisco Cow Palace Livestock Queen

when she was 17, and by the early 1960s, Rose was the leading female exhibitor in the California Reined Cow Horse Association (CRCHA), the entity which later evolved into today’s NRCHA. In 1998, Rose was named the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA)’s Professional Horsewoman of the Year, receiving additional recognition for 30 years of continuous breeding. The third (and first female) inductee to the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA)’s Non-Pro Hall of Fame, she was inducted into the NRCHA Hall of Fame and the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2004, and is among the honorees on the California Rodeo Heritage Museum’s Wall of Fame. An AQHA-approved judge for 14 years, Rose was the first female member of the AQHA judges’ committee; she has also been a recognized judge for the NCHA, National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) and American Horse Show Association, and a National Director and select committee member for the AQHA. Rose made history in the NCHA, becoming the first woman to win an NCHA Non-Pro World Championship in 1967. She went on to claim that title three more times, and also earned the distinction of being the first woman to compete in the NCHA Futurity, and the first female Open Finalist. Rose’s personal credits also include many CRCHA titles, AQHA Reserve

World Championships in Cutting and Reining; the NRHA Limited Non-Pro Champion title at the 1999 NRHA Derby; Limited Non-Pro and Reserve Non-Pro Championships at the 1999 National Reining Breeder’s Classic, and the NRHA Non-Pro and Limited NonPro Championships at the 1993 NRHA Lazy E Classic. Her accomplishments in the competitive arena were tremendous, but Rose didn’t stop there. The breeding program she established and carefully nurtured over a lifetime has made her the AQHA’s all-time leading breeder of performance horses and a perennial chart-topper among the breeders of NRCHA and NRHA money-earners. Rose’s story is intertwined with her legendary performer and sire Shining Spark (Genuine Doc x Diamonds Sparkle x Mr Diamond Dude), a 1989 stallion whose impact on the reined cow horse industry equals that of his famous breeder and owner. Shining Spark is not only the NRCHA’s leading sire, with offspring earnings of $3.7 million and counting, but he is also an NRHA Hall of Fame inductee and NRHA Four Million Dollar Sire. In his own competitive career, “Shiner” earned more than $55,000 with riders like NRHA and American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame inductee Bob Loomis and NRHA Three Million Dollar Rider and Hall of Fame inductee Tim McQuay in the saddle.

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.
