A SHARED PASSION

Many personal and professional coaching resources guide their students along the road to efficiency and success by urging them to find their “why.” This is a personal mission statement, which motivates individuals to anchor their goal-striving in the pursuits for which they feel the most passion. Clearly, for people who loathe the jobs they have held for years or decades, finding their “why” can be a life-changing endeavor, if they indeed manage to accomplish it. Something that has always struck me about our NRCHA competitors: male or female, young or old, they are all perfectly clear about their “why,” and it is reined cow horses. Different individuals may have slightly different angles. For some, it may be the horses themselves, or the thrill of competition, or the satisfaction of the process—training a young horse from blank slate to elite champion. They are simply slight

variations on the same “why,” which has in turn fueled our association since it was founded in 1949. Professional horsemen and -women have constructed entire lives and livelihoods around the “why.” Many jokes refer to horse training as a physically punishing and financially thankless profession. No doubt any trainer would attest there is plenty of truth behind the humor. But to our community of riders who are immersed in their “why,” the enjoyment of living their passion on a daily basis is more than enough to keep striving. American novelist Ernest Hemingway, in his famous book “The Sun Also Rises,” penned a quote for one of his main characters, Jake Barnes. Jake says, “Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except bullfighters.” His point was that only a handful of exceptional people—in this case, Spanish bullfighters who face death every day—achieve a feeling of fulfillment in their lives. For those of us in the know, his quote could have read, “Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except people who ride reined cow horses.” Change is constant, in life and the NRCHA. I urge you to think about this: No matter the variations we make in our association, whether it be the location of our Premier Events, revisions to our rulebook, or implementation of various programs, our evolving association depends upon the “why.” Always nurture it. All the best, Jay Winborn

A SALUTE TO TEAMWORK From NRCHA President Todd Bergen

JEREMY HEID

With our 2017 NRCHA Derby complete, I would like to congratulate everyone who helped make the show in Paso Robles a success. Our major cow horse events do not happen by themselves. It takes dedicated and detail-oriented work from the people in the office, the facility team, and the broadcast producers to make it happen. When our riders, spectators and sponsors have a positive experience at a show, it’s because our event staff is doing a great job. Hats off to everyone who makes it happen! There are also a couple of sponsors who should receive extra recognition for their support of the Derby in particular. In this issue, you will read about the CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular. This class is sponsored by longtime NRCHA supporter Holy Cow Performance Horses, with locations in Weatherford, Texas, and Santa Ynez, California. Nancy Crawford-Hall established this $50,000-added class in memory of her late stallion CD Survivor. It has definitely lived up to her vision as far as creating a showcase for our great bridle horses, and the title has become one of the most sought-after prizes we have in the NRCHA.

6 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

The other standout sponsor at the Derby is San Juan Ranch. I’ve been to a lot of horse shows over the years, and you just don’t get a meal at a show like the one San Juan Ranch sponsors on Derby Open Finals morning. It is truly a highlight of our week in Paso Robles. Once again, hats off to Holy Cow, San Juan Ranch, and all of our outstanding sponsors. Believe it or not, we are right around the corner from the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, and the countdown is more often talked about in days and weeks, instead of months. It is even more highly-anticipated this year, because 2017 marks our move to Fort Worth, Texas, and comes with a bigger payout pretty much across the board. Our go-round winners will take home more money, and the Open Champion will claim $125,000. It all starts October 3 in Fort Worth, and we’re all excited for every aspect—the show and the sales—and are already enjoying a tremendously warm welcome from Fort Worth and the entire Western performance horse industry. I wish everyone a productive summer and early fall as we look ahead to the Snaffle Bit Futurity and the conclusion of another successful NRCHA Premier Event show season.

NOTABLE NON PRO Youth champion Adrianna “Anna” Adams is making her mark in NRCHA competition.

12 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

COURTESY ANNA ADAMS

A

nna Adams, Oakdale, California, has been around horses since a young age, but her pursuit of National Reined Cow Horse Association titles began in earnest when her parents, Wade and Andrea Adams, bought her a cow horse. “I went to the Snaffle Bit Futurity in Reno, Nevada, I think I was 10, and I was like, ‘I really want to do that.’ My parents bought me my first cow horse, Wynsome Chex. That’s what got me into it,” said Adams, now 17. Wynsome Chex (Chex Out This Remedy x Miel Classic Tejon x Mr San Olen) carried Adams to two consecutive NRCHA Youth Limited World Championships in Anna Adams 2012 and 2013. She has since ventured into non professional competition riding a new horse, Wanna Winna help. Junior was super easy for me to Prize. The 2008 gelding with $48,485 in show. I was able to put my hand on his lifetime earnings is by Smokums Prize neck and just cut. He’s really easy for and out of Ill Be A Winning Gal by Ill me to get along with and he takes care Be Smart. “Junior” carried Adams to of me too. “We bought him about two years first-place finishes in the 2017 NRCHA Stallion Stakes Non Pro Limited and ago,” said Adams. “He’s actually my Non Pro Limited Spectacular, as well as mom’s horse. My first big show was at the AQHA Youth World last year. second in the Youth Limited. The NRCHA Stallion Stakes in Las My mom let me show him in Reno, Vegas was Adams’ first time to show which was our first big win. We won the $5,000 Non Pro Limited and were out of the herd. “I was a little nervous but he was second in the Non Pro Limited. We’re good,” she said. “I had great turn-back getting together a little bit more.”

Adams says her journey to horse show success has required lots of dedication and help from some top NRCHA Professionals. She started out riding with Clayton Edsall and now rides with Les Oswald. “You have to put in a ton of hours,” said the teen. “Just getting with your horses and being able to read cows and practicing takes time. I’ve been fortunate to have parents who have supported me through this and I’m just really glad that I’ve had my trainer Les Oswald, who has been a great help. He has supported me by teaching me and helping me get better.” Adams’ advice to others thinking about riding cow horses? “I’d tell them to definitely try it,” she said. “Something about a cow horse is just really cool. For them to be able to do a reining pattern and work a cow is really a good feeling of accomplishment. I’ve shown in the reining before, but I love cow horses. It’s definitely my favorite. I want to still keep showing and just stay with it. I really love the NRCHA and the sport.” Adams plans to attend college at Texas Christian University and compete on the equestrian team.

nized as the heart of cow horse country, a fitting location to showcase the talents of horses who are taking the next step in their limited-age event careers as derby competitors. Some of the 2017 Derby finalists had already proven themselves as Premier Event Champions in limited age competition, while others were still striving to put all the pieces together at the highest


///////// NRCHA DERBY levels for a big win. As any NRCHA competitor will attest, on any given day, any of the finalists could have stepped up to claim the Derby Open Championship title.

CAREER HIGHLIGHT Professional horseman Justin Wright, Santa Maria, California, arrived in Paso Robles as one of the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s top 20 Open riders. In the past three show seasons, 2014-2016, Wright had earned more than $151,000 in Open competition, as part of his lifetime record of more than $450,000. Well-known as a talented hand who has become a frequent player in NRCHA Premier Event finals, Wright had yet to claim a major Open Championship. Though he knew he was in tough competition, Wright couldn’t help feeling good about what happened in Paso Robles leading up to the Open finals on Saturday, June 17. “The week felt incredible,” he said. The 30-year-old horseman brought three Derby entries, qualified all three for the Open finals, and won the Open Novice Horse Championship—based on the preliminary scores—on one of those finalists. Besides his own success,

one of Wright’s assistant trainers, Danny Sanchez, won the Derby Level 1 Limited Open Championship, and several of his non pro competitors performed well in their respective classes. Even as he celebrated the high points, Wright knew the toughest challenges lay ahead during the Open finals. “It’s going to be different,” Wright said, before the finals. “Usually I’ll show up with one or two and hopefully make the finals on one of them. Having three in the finals is pretty neat, bringing three and having all three in the finals. It’s gonna be a busy day, I guess, but I’m excited about it.” Wright replied without hesitation when asked whether he had a strategy for managing his trio of finalists. “No, not at all,” he said, laughing. As it turned out, the demands of showing three horses made him too busy to be nervous. “I felt like it kept me ‘loped down,’ where I couldn’t think about anything else except showing my horses,” he said. The Open finals took place over two days, with the herd work on Friday, June 16, followed by the rein and fence work on Saturday. One of Wright’s finalists, Lil Bay Hawk (Catty Hawk x Gray Little

Freckles x Playgun), owned by Stephen Silva, jumped out to the lead when he marked the top herd score, a 225. It was an encouraging start for Wright, who had been close to winning a major Open title on Silva’s gelding in the past. “I felt like every time before that I was close, or had a chance, I’d either screw something up or we’d run into some bad luck. This time, it just felt like it was going to work,” he said. The next day, in the rein work, the 5-year-old Lil Bay Hawk spun, slid and circled his way to a 220.5, the sixth-high score of the go-round. The gelding still had the lead after two events, kicking up the excitement a few more notches. “It was just fun. More than anything, I was just happy to be there, and have the horse in another great spot to potentially win. He’s been close at some other big shows, and it was great to be there again,” Silva said. Although Silva, of Templeton, California, is an accomplished NRCHA non pro competitor with several championships and prestigious finals placings to his credit, including making the top 10 in the 2015 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Non Pro Finals with Lil Bay Hawk, he kept a low profile at the Derby. “I was in full owner mode. I didn’t want to be in the way. I wished Justin luck earlier in the day, and left it at that,” Silva said. From his vantage point in the spectator seats, Silva watched as, halfway through the fence work finals, NRCHA 2 Million Dollar Rider Todd Bergen, piloting Tony Grover’s Boonlight Roan Bar (Bet Hesa Cat x Cat Boonlight Jewels x Boonlight Dancer), laid down a scorching 226 to move into first place. Along with Boonlight Roan Bar’s 219 herd and 221.5 rein work scores, it meant a hard-to-beat 666.5 composite and a suspenseful afternoon for Silva, as he waited for his horse to work third-to-last in the draw.

///////// NRCHA DERBY “When Todd had that big run, it took the wind out of my sails a little, but even ending up in the top five would have been great,” he said. As the late afternoon temperature soared into the triple digits, horse after horse worked down the fence without moving Bergen from the top of the leader board. Then, Lil Bay Hawk trotted into the arena near the very end of the last set. He took control from the beginning, boxing with authority, nailing one powerful turn each direction, and going straight to the circles. Silva’s vocal cords paid the ultimate price as he watched his horse work. “I lost my voice. I was screaming at the top of my lungs,” he said. The judges’ horn signaled the end of the run and Wright waved his hat in the air. He knew it was a great performance. Announcer Darren Moore called out the score—a 227! Wright and Lil Bay Hawk claimed a stratospheric composite of 672.5 for the Championship. “I don’t remember most of it,” Wright admitted of the fence work. “He went in there, and it felt good, and it just all worked out. Every turn, it seemed like we just stayed in time, and it was incredible. It’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of—winning a major, and it’s just incredible.”

NO SHORTCUTS In one way or another, Justin Wright has been working toward his Derby Open Championship since before his first reined cow horse earnings were recorded in 2002, when he was 16. He earned $143,341 in youth, amateur and non-pro competition before going professional at the end of 2008. Lessons learned growing up in a horsecentered family steered Wright on a productive path. His parents, Walter and Sharon Wright, were deeply rooted in the cattle and equine industries. With 22 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

A tremendous 227 fence work score sealed the Derby Open Championship, a career highlight for Wright.

the influential NRCHA Hall of Fame sire Smokum Oak (Doc’s Oak x Gunsmoke Ann x Mr Gun Smoke) as the cornerstone of their program, the Wrights became leading breeders of reined cow horses, including the 2000 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Champion Smokums Prize (Smokum Oak x Tommie Tivio Tucker x Doc Tom Tucker). The Wrights had been married 31 years when Walter passed away in 2011. Raised in the saddle, shadowing his dad and four older siblings, Justin learned many things about the horse business, and his dad’s fundamentals always stayed with him. He learned to maintain a patient and persistent work ethic and to ride every customer’s horse daily, regardless of whether it was spoiled, broncy, average or excellent. People began to notice the soft-spoken trainer’s combination of self-discipline and natural ability. “Justin is, first and foremost, incredibly talented. He’s got so much feel on those horses. He’s just now really starting to hone and develop it, and starting to mature, and it’s coming out in the quality of horses that he’s training. Beyond that, his showmanship and how he gets his horses through runs and makes them look so great sets him apart,” Silva said.

Silva and Wright made their first trainer/customer connection nearly a decade ago, when Silva purchased one of Justin’s favorite family-raised horses, the 2004 gelding Talkin Prize (Smokums Prize x Talkin Peppy Merada x Meradas Money Talks). “That was my first step into serious horse showing, buying that horse,” Silva said. As it often does, the purchase of one reined cow horse led to others, and in December 2014, Silva was shopping for a Snaffle Bit Futurity prospect. He didn’t see anything he wanted until Bill and Michelle Cowan of Ardmore, Oklahoma, sent him a text of then 2-year-old Lil Bay Hawk, who the Cowans had raised. “It was a text with just a picture of him standing tied. I pretty much knew I would buy him even then. I tried him and was set on him. I loved him, really loved him, from day one,” Silva said. “Even in that picture, he had a presence. He was just an attractive horse. Not only is he talented and gritty, he looks pretty doing it.” Silva nicknamed the son of Catty Hawk “Henery,”—the extra ‘e’ is there on purpose—after the Looney Tunes cartoon character Henery Hawk, the pint-


///////// NRCHA DERBY sized, feisty yet mighty chickenhawk. In 2015, Silva and Henery earned more than $16,000 in non pro futurity money together, and Silva initially planned to show the gelding in Paso Robles. However, a busy work schedule and concern that he wouldn’t be ready prompted Silva to turn the reins back over to Wright. “I’m glad he chickened out!” Wright said jokingly. No one is quite sure what the future will hold for Lil Bay Hawk, who now claims $81,864 in lifetime NRCHA earnings, and the distinction of being the horse who elevated Wright’s career to the next level. A future World’s Greatest Horseman contender? Maybe. But for the time being, Henery’s people are content to enjoy the winning feeling, which moved Wright to tears as he hugged his daughter, Lyla, son, Turner, and the kids’ mother, Gloria, close after the win.

“My family is unbelievable. They’ve stood behind me, and Gloria and the kids. There’s a lot of early mornings and late nights, and it’s tough. My mom’s there, and I have an unbelievable crew there at the house working, Russell [Probert] and Jared [Jones] and Danny [Sanchez], and a great set of owners. Stephen’s stuck with me, event after event,” Wright said. Silva was a bit surprised to see how deeply the win touched Wright, and observed that the emotions are proof of his commitment. “I’m incredibly happy for Justin. I didn’t realize it was going to affect him that much. It shows a lot about his character and how much he loves the sport. He devotes a lot of time to a lot of people unselfishly, and with a smile on his face,” Silva said. All told, Wright claimed $46,383 aboard his three Derby Open finalists. Besides

Little Bay Hawk’s $29,589 paycheck, he split fourth place on Mark and Kelly Gowing’s homebred stallion, Step To The Light (CD Lights x Shinersdiamondjackie x Shining Spark), earning $12,795. Another CD Lights mare, Light And Sassy (x Dual Sass x Dual Pep), owned by Mark and Kimberly Rauch, placed 11th and took home $3,998.

OPEN RESERVE CHAMPION For most of the finals, it appeared that NRCHA 2 Million Dollar Rider Todd Bergen was on point to win his second consecutive Derby Open Championship. The Eagle Point, Oregon, professional won the 2016 title aboard Cable Creek Ranch’s Some Kinda Merada (Cats Merada x Ima Fern Believer x Peptoboonsmal). He took the 2017 Reserve Championship riding Boonlight Roan Bar for owner Tony Grover of Cove, Oregon. The placing

///////// NRCHA DERBY earner, now with $57,728 on his record after his Derby win. Hays and Nee On Lights kept their cool in the Paso Robles heat, scoring a 655 composite on finals day (216 herd/218 rein/221 fence). The Intermediate Open Championship came with a $6,981 paycheck, and the pair picked up another $3,198 for finishing 12th in the Open. “I drew a good cow, and that little horse, he was on target in the fence work. He was a little tired because it’s been real hot today. The cows, in the prelims, the heat kind of tapped them out, but the cows didn’t weaken today. They stayed strong. We went down and made a good right turn, jumped out and made a good left turn and got circled up,” Hays said. “He goes in and tries to give you the same run every time. He doesn’t try and cheat you. He’s just a really solid little show horse,” he said. Hays had two other horses in the finals. He earned combined paychecks of $3,317 in the Open and Intermediate Open on Hes The Katz Meow, owned by Dustin Deckard; and picked up $551 in the Intermediate Open aboard Playin Motown, owned by Moncrief and Lee. The Intermediate Open Reserve Champion, just a point behind Hays with

a 654 composite (220 herd/218 rein/216 fence) was Cattin Downtown (Smooth As A Cat x Zacks Fifth Avenue x Zack T Wood), shown by Scottsdale, Arizona, professional Shadd Parkinson for owner Hannes Winkler.

LIMITED OPEN CHAMPION Hollister, California, professional Brendon Clark piloted Metal Cat (Metallic Cat x Tipofthestar x Grays Starlight) to the Derby Limited Open Championship, scoring a 632.5 composite (215 herd/210.5 rein/207 fence). The win paid $5,836. “I won the Level 1 Limited Open here last year, and was reserve in the Limited Open, so to come back this year and be able to win the Limited is exciting. I worked really hard over the last few years trying to learn as much as I can, and I’m still learning something every day. I tell people that training reined cow horses is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, and they laugh at me, because I used to ride bulls for a living,” Clark said. He retired from bull riding in 2013 and has devoted the majority of his professional energy to his horsemanship business. Also an experienced broadcaster, Clark is a popular on-air commentator for NRCHA Premier Event finals, includ-

ing the Snaffle Bit Futurity and World’s Greatest Horseman. He owns Metal Cat in partnership with friends Quentin Kersh and Jonathan Fine, and praised the gelding’s steady temperament and cow sense. “He’s a horse that doesn’t need a lot of work. You don’t need to warm him up much. You just go in, and he does what you want. He’s a nice-minded horse.” Metal Cat, a 2013 gelding, was bred by William Coburn III, Redding, California. Before he came to Clark’s program, he had been in training with cutting horse and reined cow horse professional Morgan Cromer, and then moved into reined cow horse training with Phillip Ralls. “Phillip said he thought he would suit me, and we had some success last year,” Clark said. “He was good here in the prelims. With this horse, I try not to expose what he doesn’t do as well. I try to showcase what he can do. He’s very good on a cow. I’m glad for him that he finally got a win.” In the Reserve Championship position was Caleb Jantz, Caldwell, Idaho, who piloted SJR Cash Advance (Dual Rey x Shesa Lota Cash x Nu Cash) to a 632 (211 herd/208 rein/213 cow), collecting $4,669 for owners Del and Susan Bell.

///////// NRCHA DERBY

OPEN NOVICE HORSE The preliminary scores determined the 2017 Derby Open Novice Horse Champion, and a mare who was brandnew to her trainer’s program demonstrated her talent and work ethic as she not only earned the Novice Horse title, but also claimed a spot in the Open Finals. Light And Sassy (CD Lights x Dual Sass x Dual Pep), a 2012 mare shown by NRCHA Professional Justin Wright, scored a 653.5 composite (214.5 herd/ 219.5 rein/219.5 fence), winning nearly $3,000. Owners Mark and Kim Rauch, Arlington, Washington, sent the mare to Wright just two months before the Derby. Even for Wright, one of the NRCHA’s top 20 professionals, it was a challenge to prepare a new horse for a major event in such a short timeframe. “She’s a really neat mare. She’s had to work hard the last couple months to get used to a new program. She stepped up to the plate and never second-guessed what I was asking. She always tried her guts out and came out the next day with a good attitude. She’s advanced really quickly. I was still unsure when I got here, because I hadn’t showed her at a major event. She has surprised me all

week, and has been better every time I got her out,” Wright said.

LEVEL 1 LIMITED OPEN CHAMPION The Wright Quarter Horses team had another reason to celebrate on Thursday, as Justin Wright’s assistant trainer, Daniel Sanchez, won the Level 1 Limited Open Championship riding Mi Smart Ichi Girl (Cat Ichi x A Smart Laker Girl x Laker Doc), owned by Mary Hobbs. The 2012 mare scored a 641.5 composite (211 herd/212 rein/218.5 fence), earning $2,123. “She’s a super gritty mare. She’s always been gritty, and a great fence horse. She’s not going to get outrun down the fence. If the cow has a little spunk to it, she’s going to be right there with it, and that’s what she did today. Everyone said it was scary, but we were just trying to get that cow caught,” Sanchez said. The 22-year-old horseman has been an assistant trainer to top NRCHA Professionals, starting his career under Jake Gorrell, Hanford, California. Sanchez currently works for Justin Wright, a fullcircle family tradition. “My dad worked for the Wrights for 20-plus years. Justin has known me since I was a baby. He’s pretty much like my

big brother, he’s been a role model to me my whole life. I’ve looked up to him showing horses, so it’s pretty great to be competing against him now and working for him. It’s pretty awesome,” Sanchez said. He thanked Wright, Gorrell, his parents, and Mi Smart Ichi Girl’s owner, Mary Hobbs, for believing in him. “She stuck with me when I was 21 years old and sent this mare to me. I don’t know many people who would send a horse to a 21 year old, but she did, and it’s worked out great for the both of us,” he said. The Level 1 Limited Open Reserve Champion was another Justin Wright protégé, Jared Jones, who rode Linda Tayne’s Gunna Smokum Alittle (Little Lotto Lena x Mia Gunna Smokum x Smokum Oak) to a 637 (214 herd/213 rein/210 cow), earning $1,592.

DERBY NON PRO, INTERMEDIATE NON PRO AND NOVICE NON PRO CHAMPION A special bond between Hope Miller and her 5-year-old gelding, Dare To Sioux (A Shiner Named Sioux x Tari Darlin x Taris Catalyst) helps the pair consistently achieve fence work performances that any top professional trainer would Far left: Light And Sassy had a heavy and serious workload before the NRCHA Derby, but rose to the challenge, winning the Open Novice Horse Championship and qualifying for the Open finals.

JIVIDENS CUSTOMS


///////// NRCHA DERBY envy. The non pro from Hockinson, Washington, piloted “Baby Sioux” to the highest fence score of any rider at the 2017 NRCHA Derby, a 229, sealing triple Championships in the Non Pro, Intermediate Non Pro and Novice Non Pro divisions. “He is amazing. That’s the only thing I can say. Amazing. Special,” Miller said. “He tries his hardest with the fence work. It’s his favorite thing to do.” The first steer that came out for Miller in the finals fence work was a massive, aggressive solid black that the judges whistled off. Her next one stepped through the gate and didn’t look much better—a muscular black-and-white, equal in size to her horse, that looked as if it had been fitted for show at the county fair. “It was huge and fat. I was like, ‘Uh oh, it’s gonna be a walker.’ As hot as it was, and for how big it was, [I thought] that thing is not going to want to run, but it did, thank goodness,” Miller said. Dare To Sioux easily won the sprint down the fence with flawless control, executing a powerful, full-contact right turn and then a tight left turn, going immediately into the circles. Miller says

It was another brilliant fence work performance for Hope Miller and Dare To Sioux, who scored a 229 to sweep three Derby Non Pro division championships. 32 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

she never thinks about the score during a run. “I just ask for 110 percent and he gives it. We just try our hardest. I had more of a feeling this time, as I’m petting the cow. I was, like, ‘I’m one of the guys now,’ because I always wanted to do that,” Miller said, smiling. It’s often said that the most talented horses have oddball qualities, and Dare To Sioux is no exception. “He is so quirky. We always joke that he acts like a girl,” Miller said. Her pre-show preparation consists of keeping him happy. “I walk him around, I pet him, I give him a cookie and tell him he’s so pretty and so cute, and let him have his confidence. He’s an odd horse. Sometimes you have to ride him a lot and sometimes you just walk him. It really just depends on what he needs.” Their composite score of 656.5 (210 herd/217.5 rein/229 fence) earned triple paychecks totaling $12,364. It is the second consecutive NRCHA Premier Event for Miller and Baby Sioux to dominate the Non Pro divisions. They also swept the three Non Pro, Intermediate and Novice Championships at the 2017 NRCHA

Stallion Stakes in Las Vegas, Nevada, less than three months before their arrival in Paso Robles. Miller bought Dare To Sioux as a yearling from the Carol Rose dispersal sale in Gainesville, Texas, against her father, Dan’s, wishes—a disobedience he has since forgiven. In fact, Miller’s father is so committed to Baby Sioux that he makes sure his daughter puts on her lucky shirt for the finals. The shirt’s pattern, once seen, cannot be unseen: bare-chested men with a visibly high level of fitness. “He tells me to put the boy shirt on because it’s my good luck charm. Everyone now knows, if I pull out that shirt, if my six-packs are on, I mean business,” Miller said. She started Dare To Sioux under saddle when he was 2, and then her trainer, NRCHA Professional Trent Pedersen, Brush Prairie, Washington, took over for a while. Pedersen and Dare To Sioux made the 2015 Snaffle Bit Futurity Open Finals, and then in 2016, qualified for the Intermediate Open Finals at the Stallion Stakes and the Derby. After showing in the Open for two seasons, Baby Sioux came back home to Miller, where she has always felt he belongs. The blonde horse and his blonde owner got down to the serious business of having fun together. “We’ve always had a special connection since he was a baby,” Miller said. “He trail rides and barrel races. He’s not just a cow horse. He does everything. If he doesn’t make it as a bridle horse next year, I’m sure we’ll find something else he likes to do.” Miller thanked Pedersen and her parents, who “support me the most. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them. My dad flew in from work to be here, and he got to see both my fence runs.” The Non Pro Reserve Champion was JJ Fisher, of Nipomo, California, who guided RD Play It Again Sam (CD Q Tee x PCR

///////// NRCHA DERBY win in the Amateur is awesome. I moved back to my country, to Venezuela, and have been working with my dad in the family business,” he said. Living and working in Venezuela does not provide Cid many opportunities to ride, and he appreciates the well-trained and uncomplicated Wright On Hickory, a mare he bought in February at the NRCHA Celebration of Champions. “That’s the thing, I just ride whenever I come to the shows. I have three days to practice before the shows so it’s quite a challenge,” he said. “Wright On Hickory is just amazing and she’s so easy to get ready and to show. That’s a big help.” Cid rides with NRCHA Professional Shawn Hays, Nocona, Texas, who suggested he try Wright On Hickory earlier this year. Cid began his cow horse show career in successful fashion on a bridle horse, and had been eager to take on the challenge of a younger mount. “I always wanted to show in the derby classes. It was a challenge, after three years of not showing, to get a derby horse. They’re not as mature as the bridle horses, so it’s a bigger challenge for sure. It’s been good so far. I made the finals [at

the NRCHA Stallion Stakes] in Vegas, I made the finals here, so—just keep showing and see how it goes.” The Amateur Reserve Champion was Jesse Spence, Yamhill, Oregon, who guided A Stylish Spark (Stylish Rey Gay x Just A Sparknshine x Shining Spark) to a 637 score (210 herd/216.5 rein/210.5 cow), earning $1,350. Spence will also advance to the finals in the Derby Non Pro and Novice Non Pro divisions.

NON PRO LIMITED CHAMPION The Non Pro Limited Champion was Meredith Graber, Cannelburg, Indiana, who rode her mare, CSR Lay Down Sally (Dual Spark x Look At Her Glo x CD O Cody), to the 2017 Derby Non Pro Limited Championship with a 654.5 composite (216 herd/219 rein/219.5 cow). The win paid $2,430. Graber purchased “Sally” from NRCHA Hall of Fame horsewoman Carol Rose last fall, and immediately clicked with the talented 6-year-old mare. The team won the 2017 NRCHA Stallion Stakes Non Pro Limited Championship in Las Vegas, and then followed up to take the same title in Paso Robles.

The Derby Non Pro Limited Champion was Meredith Graber, winning her second NRCHA Premier Event title of 2017 aboard CSR Lay Down Sally. 36 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

“It’s pretty exciting. I was extremely happy with all my scores, the rein work especially. I’ve never run that good in the rein work. The herd was OK, it could have been improved, but definitely was up there. I was also happy with the cow work today.” Graber, who is in her last year of NRCHA Youth eligibility, says Sally is a dream horse, requiring almost no maintenance or preparation between shows. When asked what she and her mare have been doing since the Stallion Stakes to stay tuned up, Graber replied, “Honestly, nothing! We’ve been at home, roping a few steers out in the pastures and branding and stuff, but other than that, not much. She doesn’t need much. I could leave her off for two months and bring her back and she’d be the same. If you just run and stop, turn around and pull her into the ground, she’s there. She’s pretty sweet. I hardly ever work her on cattle. She doesn’t need it.” Graber thanked her parents and her trainers, NRCHA Professionals Chris Dawson, Perrin, Texas, and Ben Bowman, Sandborn, Indiana, for their help and coaching. Bowman did not make the trip to California, so Graber relied on Dawson’s advice while in Paso Robles. “Chris rode Sally for about a year, so it was nice to have someone who knows her. He told me, ‘Keep calm and work your cow, and don’t lose it!’” Graber said. The next stop for Graber and Sally will be the American Quarter Horse Association Youth World Show, and then possibly step up to the fence work classes in 2018. The Non Pro Limited Reserve Champion was Jessica Draper, San Luis Obispo, California. She rode her gelding, Working Mans Blues (Yellow Roan of Texas x Topi Chexx x A Cowboy At Heart) to a 650 composite (217 herd/212 rein/221 cow), earning $1,944.

The CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, named in honor of the late stallion owned by NRCHA sponsor Holy Cow Performance Horses, is a $50,000-added contest that never fails to thrill spectators, year after year. The 2017 edition of the CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, held in conjunction with the NRCHA Derby in Paso Robles, California, drew 16 elite equines.

rein work and fence work determining the champion, every score counted. As it often does in reined cow horse competition, the outcome all came down to the final event, the fence work, where a phenomenal 227 score elevated Brother Jackson (Peptoboonsmal x Shes Icing Onthe Cat x High Brow Cat), shown by NRCHA Hall of Fame horseman Ken Wold, of Wilton, California, to the win. Brother Jackson scored a total 661.5 (220 herd/214.5 rein/227 cow), earning $23,400.

Brother Jackson slides to a stop as part of his winning performance in Paso Robles.

The veteran horseman, who joined the NRCHA Hall of Fame in 2008, said the 227 fence score represented one of the biggest highlights of his long career. “I’ve been doing the fence work ever since I was 20 years old, and I’m 70 now, and always dreamed of having that run—and I had it. That’s all I can say. It was really special,” Wold said. “I didn’t

WO REIN SPECTACULAR Spotlight continues to shine on the transitional Two Rein division at NRCHA Premier Events.

T

hree-event “Spectacular” classes for horses age 6 and older, featuring herd work, rein work and cow work, are familiar territory for bridle horses. In 2017, the NRCHA has debuted a brand-new Spectacular for two rein horses, offering the class at the Stallion Stakes and again at the Derby. The Two Rein Spectacular was created as an opportunity for horses to compete for robust paychecks and prestigious titles as they make the transition between showing two-handed in the snaffle and/ or hackamore, to becoming a finished, one-handed bridle horse. Reliable bridle horses have been a scarce commodity in the reined cow horse industry, and the NRCHA board of directors established the Two Rein Spectacular to encourage owners to keep those horses training and competing as they bridge that gap.

OPEN TWO REIN SPECTACULAR CHAMPION

Call Me Mitch and Phillip Ralls have been a team since the stallion’s show career began in 2014. They continued their success by winning the 2017 NRCHA Derby Open Two Rein Championship. 50 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

Blind Sided (Peptoboonsmal x Lil Miss Shiney Chex x Shining Spark) scored a 659.5 (217 herd/216.5 rein/226 fence), earning $4,080 in the Spectacular. His two-event composite in the rein and fence work topped the Open Two Rein horse show class for another $2,130. Bottom: Vanessa Lawrence rode Cash For Diamonds (Nics Black Diamond x Dun It For Cash x Nu Cash) to a 629 composite (205 herd/208 rein/215.5 cow), winning the Non Pro Two Rein Spectacular Championship and $1,920. Lawrence’s rein and cow work scores also earned the win in the Non Pro Two Rein horse show class for $1,270.

“I started working on it early, riding him in some little grazer bridles, because we were always planning on cutting on him a little bit and going back and forth between the cutting and the cow horse, so I wanted to make sure I had him to where we could work him one-handed. He’s always been one of those horses that you show him once or twice and he’s got it,” Ralls said. The 2011 stallion, owned by Estelle Roitblat, arrived in Paso Robles with NRCHA earnings already over the $100,000 mark. When he won the Open Two Rein Spectacular with a 660.5 composite (221 herd/220 rein/219.5 fence), “Mitch” added another $5,100 to his lifetime record, which now stands at just over $112,000. The stallion also reinforced his reputation as a talented, enduring performer. “He’s probably as honest a show horse as I’ve ever had, and it gives you confidence. This is probably our first bigger show where I’ve shown him one-handed, and used him and asked him, and he’s never let me down. He always gives me 110 percent,” Ralls said. The Paso Robles, California, horseman thanked Roitblat and appreciated his support crew, led by his wife, Teresa Ralls. Herd helpers and fellow professionals Todd Bergen, Corey Cushing, Jake Telford, John Swales and Justin Wright also contributed to Ralls’ success in Paso Robles.

HE IMPORTANCE OF GENETIC TESTING

By Heather Smith Thomas

How genetic testing can help stallion and mare owners make informed breeding decisions. The AQHA now offers 5-panel testing for HYPP, GBED, HERDA, LWFS and PSSM.

D

uring the past several decades, research has shed light on a number of important genetic diseases in horses, including several defects that appear in Quarter Horses and other breeds that have utilized Quarter Horse bloodlines. Some of these diseases have cropped up in recent years, originating from muta-

tions in individual horses that were ancestors of some of today’s popular pedigrees, and the new trait was perpetuated in numerous offspring. Mutations are common in humans and animals, but generally don’t cause problems with random matings because they are greatly diluted in a very large gene pool. If the genetic change occurs in an animal that

has hundreds or thousands of descendants, however, this may affect a wide number of horses. Mutations that have caused concern include HYPP (hyperkalemic periodic paralysis), a dominant trait first identified in 1985 and eventually traced back to the Quarter Horse stallion Impressive. A serious recessive trait, originally termed REINED COW HORSE NEWS | AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017

She owns horses herself, and has a personal interest in Quarter Horse genetics. “One thing that bothers me about these diseases is the lack of awareness among breeders, even though there are now some genetic tests available,” she says. Some people who have just started breeding horses, or bought a horse to ride for pleasure or to compete may not test, and then experience a problem.

ing, Western pleasure and working cow horse. These horses were genotyped for the five different disease-causing alleles, and the age-matched control Quarter Horses and Paint horses were used to establish comparative across-the-breed estimates of allele frequencies. The highest frequencies among the control Quarter Horses were for type 1 PSSM and GBED. Incidence of HERDA and HYPP were less prevalent. The group of control Paint horses harbored a high level of LWFS and had a higher prevalence of HYPP. In the sub-groups, halter horses had significantly greater frequencies for HYPP and PSSM. Cutting horses had the highest incidence for HERDA and Western pleasure horses had a high incidence for GBED—though GBED, HERDA and PSSM were found broadly throughout all subgroups. Racing and barrel horse subgroups had the lowest frequencies of all five disease genes.

DR. VALBERG

hyperelastosis cutis and later renamed HERDA (hereditary equine regional dermal asthenia) was first documented in the late 1960’s. More recently, a recessive muscle disorder called GBED (glycogen branching enzyme deficiency) was recognized as causing late-term abortions, stillbirths or weak foals that don’t survive long. Another recessive foal killer is LWFS (lethal white foal syndrome), most common in Paint horses. LWFS is fatal and appears when two copies of the affected gene are inherited, one from each parent. Some disorders are due to fairly recent mutations, like HYPP, while others—like the muscle diseases that cause “tying up” episodes—have been with us a long time, maybe since the Middle Ages. Muscle cramping associated with exercise, or with exercise after a period of inactivity, has been recognized for more than a century. Terms such as azoturia (referring to dark urine), Monday morning disease, exertional rhabdomyolysis, etc. have been used to describe this abnormality, and in recent years researchers have found there are several forms of this syndrome, with different causes. Any horse may experience a “tying up” episode if muscle stress is severe, with no underlying abnormality in muscle tissue or function. But some horses continually have problems because of a defect in which muscles collect an abnormal amount of sugar. The predisposing factor for this muscle malfunction is an altered carbohydrate metabolism, due to type 1 polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM). This muscle condition is dominantly inherited and occurs most frequently in heavily muscled horses such as Quarter Horses, draft horses, some warmbloods and other breeds that utilize Quarter Horse or draft horse bloodlines. Dr. Nena Winand, a retired veterinary molecular geneticist at Cornell University, researched the HERDA mutation (an

HOW COMMON ARE GENETIC DISEASES? A research study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association in 2009 (a collaborative effort by geneticists at UC-Davis and the University of Minnesota) utilized a genetic survey of more than 650 elite performance Quarter Horses, along with 200 control Quarter Horses and 180 control Paint horses, to try to determine the frequency of several genetic diseases found in Quarter Horses and related breeds, and to see if some disciplines/sub-types showed more or less frequency than the breed average. They looked for HYPP, lethal white foal syndrome (LWFS), GBED, HERDA, and type 1 PSSM in horses performing in seven different competitive disciplines— barrel racing, cutting, halter, racing, rein-

Allele frequency is the broad category that covers both dominant and recessive diseases, and is therefore an estimate of the percentage of disease-causing alleles (variants) of a gene among all the alleles in the horse population (in this instance Quarter Horses and Paint horses). Carrier frequency describes the percentage of the population having a single copy of a disease-causing allele that does not cause a disease phenotype (recessive diseases such as LWFS, GBED, and HERDA). These carriers are important because they have the potential to create diseased animals when bred to other carriers, even though they do not show the disease themselves. Breeding two carriers will result in affected offspring 25 percent of the time (and result in carrier offspring 50 percent of the time, and 25 percent chance of a non-carrier). For dominant diseases like HYPP and PSSM, a single allele is enough to cause the disease; breeding an affected animal to a non-affected animal will result in a 50 percent chance of creating a normal animal and 50 percent 68 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

chance of an affected animal. In the past, many Quarter Horse and Paint breeders did not use DNA testing unless there was a known carrier related to the horses being used for breeding, yet nearly all sub-groups carry these disease alleles. Use of AI, embryo transfer and superovulation and cloning of popular horses can speed up the appearance of genetic diseases and only a few years are needed to pass many copies of a gene to thousands of horses from a popular sire or mare. The need for genetic testing has increased dramatically. “This research paper serves as a reference for occurrence of various genetic diseases in different performance disciplines,” says Winand. “Owners of these horses might think there is low incidence, but it is significant in terms of MH (malignant hyperthermia, a serious genetic disease, which is not included in the panel test now offered by the AQHA) and PSSM—especially the type of PSSM that we still don’t know the cause of. There is a test for type 1 PSSM, but we know there are at least two other types in performance horses such as Quarter Horses, Paints, etc.

“We may not have all the necessary tests yet for these, but if I were breeding for performance horses, I would definitely be testing for PSSM, MH, and GBED since these genetic diseases can occur throughout the population. I wouldn’t worry so much about HYPP and HERDA because these are associated with specific bloodlines and a person would know what to test for and what not to worry about if you know your bloodlines,” she says. Winand adds that breeders have to look back in the pedigree a long ways to be sure, but can understand where these problems came from. By contrast, PSSM and GBED are much more widespread and trace back many generations. “Originally it was thought that GBED came from a mutation passed on by King P234, but essentially all modern Quarter Horses trace back to King at least once, so it could have come from farther back,” Winand explained. In some of her own research concerning the possibilities of cloning being problematic, Winand worked with the AQHA to look at the impact a specific sire could have on the breed.


///////// YOUR HORSE’S HEALTH “We pulled sire records from Little Peppy, King, Poco Bueno, Doc Bar, and other horses that were perceived to have had big influences on the breed. It wasn’t easy at the time (in 2004) because we didn’t have the updated computer capacity we have today. We asked the IT people to get us the data on how many living Quarter Horses traced back to those sires. We discovered that almost every living Quarter Horse at that time traced back to King, and two-thirds of them traced back at least once to Poco Bueno. Thus, you can’t just look at a pedigree today and think you are safe. GBED is not uncommon, and we are not sure what bloodlines it will be found in; you just have to test for it. HERDA is a little different because we know how it is transmitted,” Winand says.

THE IMPORTANCE OF TESTING HORSES Dr. Stephanie J. Valberg, Michigan State University, says it is important to do genetic testing, for several purposes— making breeding decisions, checking the status of an animal you are purchasing for breeding, and making an accurate

diagnosis in a horse with signs of muscle disease. “Be aware of the three considerations for when to use genetic testing, which are breeding, purchasing and diagnosis, and know what the genetic test is that is being offered, and whether a test has been validated,” Valberg says. “When contemplating breeding animals, we want to know whether or not they are likely to pass on a genetic trait. With the AQHA now having a 5-panel test (for HYPP, GBED, HERDA, LWFS and PSSM), it’s possible to get a rela-

tively economical overview of what your horse’s genetic status is on those diseases.” Owners can then either select mates to breed away from a trait or decide it is not worth the risk of passing on the genetic condition. It’s important to have an understanding of dominant and recessive traits because this will influence breeding decisions. “If your horse has a recessive trait you would want to breed to a horse that does not carry that trait, to avoid any chance of having an affected foal. If your horse has a dominant trait, however, and is heterozygous (one normal gene, along with the gene for the genetic disease), no matter what horse you breed to, there is a 50 percent chance that the offspring will be affected,” Valberg said. This could lead to the heartbreak of producing an affected foal, whether it’s your own foal or a foal from someone else’s mare bred to your stallion. “If you have an affected foal and are trying to sell it later, this will affect its value if genetic testing is done as part of a pre-purchase exam. If you are purchasing a performance horse and wonder if it might have an underlying genetic disorder, it’s wise to find out—since this may affect the horse’s ability to perform. If you have done genetic testing on animals you are selling, you have a duty to disclose the results of those tests,” said Valberg. The 5-panel test makes knowing the odds more affordable. “When you do the AQHA’s 5-panel test, that information also becomes available with the horse’s registration. If you use a private lab for genetic testing, the results are confidential to you and not linked to the horse’s registration,” she says. This could be an issue later if the horse is sold and the previous owner does not disclose the test results to the new owner.

Simply stated, breeding horses is a huge investment and losses can take both an emotional and financial toll. “You want to minimize chances for financial loss,” says Winand. “Beyond the financial issue, there is also the emotional and ethical level. All AQHA or APHA members want to adhere to their breed’s mission statements, to breed healthy horses. We need to understand what we must do to breed healthy horses and recognize that genetic problems are diseases.” Dr. Carrie Finno, Assistant Professor and Researcher of Population Health and Reproduction at UC-Davis, does genetic research looking for mutations in horses in order to make tests available. “It’s important for new horse owners to understand, especially in the Quarter Horse world, that even if you are not considering breeding your animal, you should do the 5-panel test as part of a pre-purchase exam because a lot of the muscle diseases can be performancelimiting. They can be managed, but you probably want to know the genetic status of a horse before you purchase—because this is a lifelong management. With genetic diseases, nothing is curative, so all we can do is use this knowledge to manage those horses appropriately. It’s best to go into this with eyes wide open, rather than find out after the fact that the very nice horse you’ve purchased has a problem. Some people don’t do the tests and go ahead and buy the horse, and maybe the horse is doing more work or different work and starts to have problems.” New owners may not be familiar with some of the genetic diseases that old-timers have learned about, albeit sometimes the hard way. “Someone could buy a horse and not know what questions to ask, like whether it has been tested,” says Dr. Gary Magdesian, School of Veterinary

Magdesian adds that if taken proper care of, some diseases are manageable with diet and exercise, plus medication. If people are informed they at least know if the horse has a disease and can manage it appropriately. “Testing provides knowledge, and knowledge is power,” he added. “There is a lot to learn, and most horse owners try to learn all they can about their horses, so they can make the best decisions regarding their care and breeding.

PROPER TACK CARE Learn how to clean and condition tack. By Dennis Moreland

K

eeping leather tack in good condition is critical for safety and it also helps to keep the communication between you and your horse at the top level. Dried and cracking leather does not give the same signal as good, dense, well cared for leather. It’s a great idea to check your tack for wear or damage before every ride. I recommend wiping it down with saddle soap after every ride and hanging it properly where it has space to hang naturally. You also want to give your tack a good deep cleaning every few months to help preserve it and keep it at its highest level of performance. If you haven’t used a piece of tack in a while, it’s important to check it over carefully, oil it if needed, and make necessary repairs. Just like your horse, if you don’t ride it, your tack won’t perform as well as when it’s used continuously. Follow these straightforward steps to deep clean and condition your leather: 1. To properly deep clean and oil a piece of tack you’ll need saddle soap, Neatsfoot oil or a substitute and a couple pieces of sheepskin or clean cloth. I use Neatsfoot oil, but other oils such as olive oil will work. I don’t use leather conditioners or other products that leave a film on the leather.

74 AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2017 | REINED COW HORSE NEWS

2. Take the piece of tack completely apart. Check both the leather and hardware for wear and damage. Pay careful attention to the folds in the leather. 3. Spray or rub saddle soap liberally onto a piece of sheepskin, cloth or sponge. 4. Rub each piece of leather until any dirt on the leather is removed.

///////// FROM THE JUDGE’S CHAIR

BLATANT DISOBEDIENCE: THE KICK Learn why deductions for blatant disobedience via kicking during reining runs are frequently reviewed penalties. BONNIE WHEATLEY

By Bill Enk

I

n the rein work phase of National Reined Cow Horse Association events, a five-point penalty is applied to the horse that exhibits blatant disobedience. Blatant disobedience occurs when a horse is kicking, biting, bucking, rearing, striking, or obviously insubordinate. In this article we are going to discuss the “kick.” In the National Reining Horse Association rulebook it states that a kick, whether it is a little kick or a big kick, is still a kick, and incurs a five-point penalty. This is a serious, defeating penalty that must be applied correctly. Most of the time, the kick occurs during the lead change. A kick can be exhibited in different forms. The most obvious kick is when the horse elevates its hips and fires out with one or both hind legs to their rear. Also included in the kick category is when the horse obviously kicks at the rider’s spur. This usually happens when the rider cues the horse to change leads. A less common occurrence is when the horse kicks at the ground during the lead change. Kicks are a frequently reviewed penalty, and for good reason. Depending on where the judges are seated, whether directly in front, to the side, or behind the horse, they might all have a different perspective on what appeared

Depending on where the judges are seated, they may all have a different perspective on what appeared to have happened when a kick is suspected.

to happen. Questions to be answered during the review are: Was it a true, hock-flexing, obviously insubordinate kick? Was it a threat not fully carried out? Or, was it just a slightly elevated, “hop” type lead change? The last two situations present by far the most difficult calls to make for judges. When a horse threatens to kick but doesn’t fully act on the threat, the question is whether the horse was obviously insubordinate. If the judge cannot make a decision one way or the other, the horse should receive the benefit of the doubt. It is important to remember, in this case, something happened that was not credit earning, so the score for that maneuver has to be affected.

A less difficult call is the “hop” type, elevated lead change. This appears to be a type of exaggerated lead change with no resentment or attitude involved. The maneuver is probably affected and should be scored accordingly. Judging fairly and consistently for extended periods of time is not an easy endeavor. Major penalties should not be applied carelessly. It is very important to “get it right.” A good rule of thumb when applying penalties is they should be obvious, and be able to successfully be defended if challenged. Until next time, Bill Enk NRCHA Director of Judges

5. 6. 7.

8. 9.

10. 11. 12. 13. 14.

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.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. 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. 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. 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 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. All nominators of stallions must be members in good standing of the NRCHA. In the event the stallion owner or syndicate manager chooses not to enroll the stallion, nominators may be persons other than the owner or syndicate manager of 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. All subscription fees will be made payable to the NRCHA in US funds or its equivalent. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. These rules are subject to change at any time by the NRCHA Board of Directors.
