Be Led By Your Dreams...

Ima Petite Classic

written by Diana Friend photography provided by The Reeve Family


oes the simple statement on an advertisement tell the story of Darcy Reeve and her horses? Yes, she has more than one horse; but among them is a dream horse named A Certain Vino, a horse that Western Pleasure aficionados only dream about. Guided by the dream teams of Ty & Karen Hornick and Charlie Cole & Jason Martin, this combo dominated the major Western Pleasure competitions from coast to coast last year. Darcy and I had a chance to talk about her accomplishments and what the future holds for her and her horses.



KQHA_2009.indd 10

I’m Already Blue

7/7/09 3:16:45 PM


Darcy, have you always loved horses or did you inherit the interest from your mom or dad?


There has been riding in my family for generations on both my mom and dad’s side. Dad had horses when he grew up, but Kelley and I are the showers.


How old were you when you started riding, and what was your horse’s name? What did you like about him?


I have been riding since I was 5 years-old. My sister Kelley had a horse named Boy, and I would always ride double with her. I really don’t remember a lot about him, but I know he was fearless.


Since I have not had the pleasure of “meeting” your horse, describe A Certain Vino, and what makes him a top Western Pleasure horse?


Vino has a lot of presence--he wants to do good and he wants to win. I talk to Vino all the time; and if there is a big class, I tell him about it. He’s kind of laid-back and if he’s not being good, you go into this love/hate thing. Vino knows his job. Everyday he’s ready to work. When you are around him, you can tell he knows he’s special. In Western Pleasure you have to love motion and movement (because) it’s about the speed...the person ahead of you…the person behind you, and the one passing you. It’s really a difficult event.


Vino isn’t the only horse you show—tell us about the other horses in your life.


When you were young (she’s really ancient right now at age 17!) you showed in Kansas a lot— riding I’m Already Blue and Future Millionaire. When did you know it was time to transition to a national campaign?


We took every level slow, starting with local open shows and 4-H shows around Garden City, working our way up. It was great because it was only one day and one judge and everyone had fun. We started working with trainers, and we met other people and moved up to showing at the state level in KQHYA. Then when first Kelley, then I started competing at the AQHYA World Shows on What a Fancy Zippo and Caught in My Zipper — both amazing horses — it seemed like the right time to move to the national level.


Well, I have Ima Petite Classic that I show in the Western Riding and the Trail. At the 2008 Youth World, we made it to the finals in Trail. He is one of the most talented horses I have ever known. I also have True Rumors. He is a three-year-old who is by Dress Western and out of Radical Rumors. We had a very successful 2008 with wins at the Tom Powers, Southern Belle, and NSBA Breeders Championships. Finally, I have What a Fancy Zippo. We retired him after the Youth World last year where we ended up 4th in the Trail. He was Kelley’s horse, and she won the World on him in the Amateur Trail.


On winning her first AQHYA World Championship in Western Pleasure:

When you ride into the arena at the World, it’s really special trotting down this dark alley and into the arena


I don’t worry about winning (or losing) because there is always another show and next year. My Trail finals were the day before the Western Pleasure finals and because I was showing two horses in Trail, I was really tired. But as Vino and I rode into the arena, it hit me I was in THE FINALS, and I stepped-it-up because I knew what was at stake. When you ride into the arena at the World, it’s really special trotting down this dark alley and into the arena and the light. It makes it feel really important. I had bigger butterflies

and the light.


What is your favorite thing about showing horses? Who is your favorite horse, past or present?


Picking just one thing is impossible. The people I am around, the horses I have had the opportunity to ride, and traveling to many different places all make showing horses my favorite activity. My all-time favorite horse is I’m Already Blue. He took me to the next level from showing at open shows to KQHA shows. Blue was always good.

in Western Pleasure than in Trail. You can’t really get nervous about Trail. You never know what’s going to happen. Annelise Kimmel, who also trains with Ty & Karen, was also in the Finals, so that was really cool. Vino and I had placed 5th in 2007, so I was hoping that we would make the top ten again this year. But this time, I remember a lot of people on the rail told me we looked good. I felt really good—even when a horse in front of us stopped unexpectedly. I just worked my way around it and didn’t think twice. When they called us into the center, I knew I had a great ride. I knew there were a lot of great horses, but I hoped I had a shot. At first I was just sitting there, but as they started announcing the placings, my butterflies got bigger and bigger. When they started announcing the top ten, I felt it was great accomplishment for me—I was satisfied, but with each announcement, the butterflies got BIGGER! When they got to the top five, I looked to the left and saw Denny Strickland, the 2007 World Champion and to my right was Megan McMullen riding Hunting for Money, another great horse. Each time a placing was announced, Karen, Annalise and I kept looking at each other with big smiles on our faces. When third place was announced, Annalise and I were left—she was clear at the other end of the lineup, but we moved towards each other and met in the middle and hugged. When they announced Annalise was second, I could breathe again and all the pressure was off. I knew we had done it; but with the announcers talking about all the prizes I won and everything else— it was just a blur. I was petting Vino; but he knows when he does good, and he got a little cocky when they put the roses around his neck. The best part was everyone was waiting for us at the end of the alley: Ty, Karen, Mom, Dad, Kelley and my best friend Megan. Winning the AQHYA World Championship in Western Pleasure is not only the best prize I won in 2008, but the best prize I have ever won!


2008 was an incredible year for you and Vino—how is 2009 going?


So far we have been concentrating on Western Riding. We have had some successes but nothing like we have had in the Western Pleasure. (Note: Darcy and A Certain Vino are qualified for the 2009 Youth World Championship in Western Pleasure, Western Riding and Performance Halter. She also is qualified in Trail and Western Riding on Ima Petite Classic.)

World Class

Parents From Brenda Reeve Kelley, Justin and Darcy have all been involved in showing horses, and we have taken it step by step and worked our way up through 4-H OK-KS open shows, KQHYA and the national shows for AQHA and NSBA. We own our business so Lee can take off to be with the girls at the shows. Lee and I are the coordinators—I make sure the clothes are clean and the boots polished. We are her support system. Darcy was home-schooled for three semesters to accommodate the travel and training needs of the horses. I’m a former school teacher, so it has been my job to make sure the school work is done. I am also the logistics manager, making travel arrangements. Lee loves going to the shows, and he can’t stand to miss them.

From Lee Reeve I have a lot of friends I’ve made along the way. In 2008, we never expected to have that much success and hopefully 2009 will also be good. Darcy has a couple of years of youth competition left. A lot of kids work and peak out their last year, but Darcy has come along a little faster. We were already focused and she picked it up quickly and naturally. But our biggest benefit is making friends from all over. This year she will compete in four classes, but it’s spread-out, and her trainers are focused on her success. When you are looking for a trainer, you have to find a program that fits you—not just a big name. We live in western Kansas, and we don’t have a trainer four miles away. There are a lot of good trainers out there; but if you are going to step up to the national level, you have to do what needs to be done to get there. As your kids are growing up, you need to have a hobby that you can do with them—something you can always have in common. We do that with our horses—Kelley and Darcy know everybody involved in showing. And when they grow up, they can always come back to it. Top: Justin, Lee, Brenda, Kelley and Darcy

Cowboy Roy Frey’s up down at

written and photographed by Carolyn Kaberline

Store owners, Jo Turner & Dewayne Burgess

We’ve got everything for ridin’, ropin’, rodeoin’- jeans, hats, and boots & tack for showin’. We’ve got it all from tack to ties. So cowboy up down at Roy Frey’s!


adio listeners in Northeast Kansas are used to hearing this Roy Frey jingle, and those visiting the store will find that it does carry a little bit of everything—tack, boots, western clothing, and home furnishings—to enhance the Western lifestyle. Roy Frey’s is not only one of the oldest stores in Topeka, but it’s also one of the last complete Western stores around. Originally the store was located in Roy Frey’s garage in North Topeka when it opened almost 60 years ago. At first, it was a part-time, evenings-only venture started mostly because Frey’s daughter couldn’t find some of the horse equipment she needed. It didn’t take long before Frey was overwhelmed with customers as word spread to other horse people. Finally he quit his job at Mosby Mack Motors, purchased an old barracks from Forbes Air Force base, and moved that building to its present location at 121 N.E. Highway 24. The current building with a front resembling an 1890’s Main Street store façade came into being approximately 37 years ago. Frey later passed the store on to his daughter—the one who began it back in 1952—upon his retirement. Finally after running the store for over 25 years, she sold it to Jo Turner, a longtime customer and KQHA member with a solid background in the equine industry. And while Turner has kept many of the items that have made the store popular over the years, she’s also added her own unique touch. That unique touch includes a variety of western décor items which have continued to gain in popularity since their addition. “We’ve expanded this section,” Turner said. “We now have



KQHA_2009.indd 14

a complete line of cowboy lifestyle items.” Those items include dishware, glassware, silverware, kitchen accessories, towels, placemats, and linens. Another popular area of the store is Liz’s Trail Corner, which specializes in equipment for those who ride the trails, whether it is for competition or just for enjoyment. Raincoats for riders, insulated saddle bags, and a variety of Cashel products can all be found here. In addition to the tack and home décor areas, visitors will find a large clothing section in the central portion of the store, while boots that make up a large portion of the store’s income line the shelves to the rear. Hundreds of boots for men, women and children are on display with approximately 3,000 pairs in stock. Rounding out the store’s offerings are men’s western suits, women’s purses, belts for all ages, billfolds, western perfumes and colognes, and Leaning Tree cards. It’s also a good place to bring one’s hat. “Mike [McGee] and Dewayne [Burgess] are excellent hat shapers,” Turner says. “When the Quarter Horse shows are in town they do a lot of hat cleaning and shaping.” She also notes that the store has a large variety of felt and straw hats. While the store’s regular customers come from Abilene, Salina, Manhattan, Atchison, St. Joseph and Lawrence, as well as Topeka, some even drive from as far away as Chanute and Coffeyville. “A lot of them come to visit when they’re in the area,” Turner says. Better yet, they bring their children and introduce a new generation to the store’s offerings. “I really feel the best when customers come in and say ‘I’m getting my son or grandson his first pair of boots like my father or grandfather did for me,’” says Turner. “That means a lot to me because it shows people have a lot of respect for us and keep coming back.” Part of that respect is due to the store’s staff. “All of our employees are horse people,” Turner says. “They come from different disciplines and can help people with their interests. We understand the Western lifestyle because we live the Western lifestyle.”

J.D. Holland

is Practicing for Perfection


unday afternoons in Manhattan, Kansas are usually reserved for napping, eating, and sometimes studying for a test. On this late spring Sunday, I had a reservation for a one-on-one interview with current AQHYA World Champion Heeler J.D. Holland. He’s a detail kind of guy, so the interview had to take place at his cousin Luke’s barn, where his horses reside. Walking to the truck, J.D. had to pause before getting in, explaining “I have to put my spurs on; it just doesn’t feel right without them.” The black spurs have “J-Dog” etched on the side and slide comfortably into place atop the heel of his boot. Rowels jingling, we headed out to the barn. His AQHA show success is a record most young men only dream of, and the past three years have been particularly rewarding for this cowboy from Bucyrus, Kansas. In 2006, J.D. won his first AQHYA belt buckle as the Reserve World Champion in Heeling aboard Freckles Silver Cash. A year later, in 2007, his practice focused on cinching the top spot. The practice paid off with J.D. and Pac Rat Jack scoring a 223.5 in the finals, winning the Ford AQHYA World Champion buckle in Heeling. Ropers usually haul more than more horse, and in 2008

J.D. admires Rella Fox or “Prince” for his elite speed and athleticism.

J.D. rode Rella Fox and Pac Rat Jack and claimed the 2008 AQHYA World and Reserve World Champion Heeling titles. J.D.’s trophy year was not over because he also qualified in Junior Heeling for the 2008 FedEx AQHA World Show on Probably A Colonel and achieved a third place finish among the “big” guys like Brad Lund, J.D. Yates and Trevor Brazile. And that’s just in AQHA. The 19-year old is a veteran competitor, competing on the local region and national levels at team ropings, jackpots, and rodeos. His climb to the top started one Christmas morning, and that set the stage for years of roping practice. “I got my first rope for Christmas when I was two or three. I started roping more often when I turned eight at jackpots and team ropings,” Holland explains. “And then I started showing Quarter Horse when I was 11.” He has not been alone in his pursuit of being a super-looper, several members of J.D.’s family rope, including his dad Jim, uncle Harold, and cousins Rob and Luke. His sisters Jamie and Meredith are barrel racers. Meredith is also Miss Rodeo Kansas 2009. “I always wanted to rope; it was always a choice. I played soccer, baseball, football, and basketball, but I always liked roping more,” J.D. states as he ropes a dummy in the barn aisle. By the time he was a senior in high school, his activities were limited to roping and football. His championship mentality helped in both sports, with his high school football team winning the State Championship in 2007. He gives AQHA Professional Horseman Brad Lund credit for training not only the horses, but him, on how to win. “When we met up with Brad Lund we started roping everyday.” Lund has been with J.D. throughout his championship journey. A

trainer/exhibitor of multiple AQHA World Champions, Lund won the AQHA Superhorse Championship three times—including one for the Holland’s stallion, With All Probability in 2005 (featured on the cover of the 2008-2009 KQHA Winner’s and Buyer’s Guide.) So what’s it like to have Brad Lund as trainer? “A triple-super” as J.D. calls him. “He’s quite, intense, and very much focused on the horse he is riding. We also have our fun days where we go head to head.” Summer mornings start at 4:30 with J.D. and Lund riding and roping all day. He has no doubt that this dedication and Lund’s expectations are the reason he has acquired the skills he has mastered. “Besides being a physically strong roper, Brad has a great grasp of the horse mind and the mental aspect for competing,” J.D. said. “He’s taught me the most about patience on a horse. I learned a lot of competitor skills: If you miss one, you can’t do anything about it now; onto the next one.” J.D. puts this advice, experience and training to use as a member of the KSU Rodeo Team. Rella Fox a.k.a. Prince and Freckles Silver Cash a.k.a. Popsicle, travel with J.D. to collegiate rodeos in Kansas and Oklahoma. “Prince is kind of a pretty boy; he was raised in the horse show world but what he does—it’s pretty elite—he’s very fast and athletic,” J.D. explains gazing admirably at the sorrel. “Popsicle is well, kind of a butthead; but he’s the most consistent horse I’ve been on,” J.D. declares. Not that he is taking preference to any of the horses in his barn, “I like to ride all of them. It makes me become a better rider and a better roper.” The most recent trophy winner in J.D.’s trailer, Probably A Colonel, does hold a special place with J.D. because he is sired by his

J.D.’s will



sister in


family’s AQHA Superhorse and World Champion With All Probability. “It would be really fun for me to win on one of his babies…it would be really special,” J.D. adds, envisioning the possibility. That future also includes being a full-time student at Kansas State University studying business, the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, the KSU Rodeo team and a return trip to Oklahoma City for his last AQHYA World Championship competition. Will he try to defend his title? “That would be the goal; that would be fun to win it three years in a row. I’m going to try just as hard as I always have.” As the defending world champ, J.D. and Rella Fox have an invitation to return for the championships, although J.D. also will be taking one or two of the previously mentioned “Ticket” babies to try improve his chances of capturing another title. With school, rodeo and the fraternity, roping for practice comes sparingly; “It kills me not to practice every day. This summer I’m going to go home and rope all day, every day until I get tired of it…which probably won’t happen.” As our chat winds down, J.D. is asked for advice he would give to other young ropers or those just starting out. “Practice makes perfect. You have to remember that you’re doing it because it’s fun. A lot of times I get caught up with the pressure and trying to get points and I have to remember I’m doing it because it’s fun. That’s why you go every weekend, because it’s fun.” J.D. asked if a special thanks to his parents, Jim and Michelle Holland, and Brad Lund could be included in this story. “Because without my family, and Brad’s help, none of it would be possible.”

Logan’s Quality Travels Near & Far written by Carolyn Kaberline

210 E. Kechi Road, Kechi, Kansas



t least two weekends of every month Patti Logan hitches up her 8 by 36 foot trailer and takes to the road. That trailer is actually a traveling store full of grooming supplies, saddles, a variety of tack, jeans and, of course, boots. “The trailer has everything the store does,” Patti says. And while she has pulled her trailer to places as far away as Las Vegas and as close as the Kansas Coliseum, she always seems to have exactly what people need. “No matter how well prepared a person is for a show, they always seem to end up missing something or having something break,” she explains, noting that she tries to make it to all the major shows such as the All American Quarter Horse Congress, the AQHYA World Championship Show, the FedEx AQHA World Championship Quarter Horse Show, the Redbud Circuit, and the Texas Amateur Show. “I try to carry a little of everything for one stop shopping.” Patti is no stranger to the arena, having done quite a bit of barrel racing in the past; in fact, it was barrel racing that brought her to Kansas. “I was raised on a ranch southeast of Gillette, Wyoming,” she says. After barrel racing all over the area, Patti came to Kansas to ride barrel horses for Dick Cole. Later, she met Ray Logan who at the time was in business with Sonny Thomison of Kechi. After the two married, Ray suggested that opening a tack store was something the two could do together while he was training and something they could continue afterward. “However, I’m the one who did most of the work with the store,” Patti says. Because of this, it was only natural that she continued with the store after the two divorced. Now after being in business for almost 15 years, she is helped by her sister Sarah Smith and her daughter Dallas. While Logan’s Western Supply located at 210 E. Kechi Road in Kechi carries such brands as Cinch and Cruel Girl Jeans, Bob’s



KQHA_2009.indd 20

Saddles and Rios of Mercedes Boots, it’s their own brand of boots for which the store is best known. “We started our own line of boots, so we could have a one of a kind something that no one else has,” says Patti. “It makes me feel really good to hear someone say, ‘I can only wear Logan boots.’” Patti explains that while the Logans designed the boots, they are handmade by the Rios of Mercedes company. “Rios of Mercedes has been in business for 150 years which makes them the oldest and most established company. A lot of other boots are machine made,” she explains. “Ours cost a bit more, but they usually get great wear, and if there’s any trouble with them, we’ll take them back.” Having been in the horse industry for some time and having a daughter who’s been involved in showing both in the rodeo arena and the cutting arena, Patti is also known for her support of youth exhibitors in their equine endeavors. “I try to really support the youth,” she says. “They’re the backbone of our industry. It doesn’t really matter what venue they’re in.” She also enjoys seeing the youth be successful. “I can remember when Nancy Murfin hauled as a youth,” Patti says, “and Todd Banks. Look at them now. It’s fun to see their kids out there now.” Patti says that while everyone is concerned with the cost of getting into showing, she tries to convince them to buy “nice stuff.” “They don’t have to buy the ultimate. If everything is well taken care of, they can compete and look the part. They can get along with that and upgrade later,” she added, noting that the youth division is very competitive. “It’s a lot of work and takes a lot of effort, like any other sport, to do well,” she says. And one thing that people can be sure of is that Logan’s Western Supply will be there to help out those beginners.

All About Horses written by Anita Miller Fry


n all-round horse named Concho and a wise spider known as Maisy are among the characters helping Kansas area youth get engaged in learning more about horses. The two are part of the Junior Master Horseman crew that guides youngsters through educational materials now published by the American Quarter Horse Association and the American Youth Horse Council. “The books are great and developed for 4-H age youth,” said Margaret “Meg” Sage Mach, Jackson County, Missouri, 4-H Youth Specialist. “It covers all of the basic information we want our youth to learn in a levels program. Youth are really engaged with the books and the web site. They are learning and having fun!” A Level One book for Junior Master Horseman was launched in 2006, and soon was followed by a more advanced Level Two book. A Level Three book is expected to be completed in 2009. In addition, an interactive web site at is available to individuals and groups who are utilizing the curriculum. “The books are selling very well and a lot of 4-H groups and other youth groups are using them,” said Lee Stribling, secretary to the director of AQHA Youth Programs/Education. The books can be ordered online through or the AQHA Outfitters or they can be purchased at TSC stores.

Junior Master Horseman Program is for Young Horse Owners and Horse Lovers though it also has appeal for older youth. Level Two goes more in depth on topics such as equine anatomy, health, nutrition, performance and safety. Careers in the horse industry are also discussed. The Level Three book is geared more toward older youth and looks at facility management, equine diseases, behavior and training, and horse sales. The books are geared toward both the horse owner and the horse enthusiast who may not have a horse but loves equines and wants to learn more about them. Stribling said the preparing the curriculum takes a great deal of research and a lot of people proofing and checking facts before publication. The Jackson County, Missouri 4-H Equine Program is using Level One and Two for its 4-H youth. There are currently 50 youth going through Level One and Two, said Mach, the 4-H Youth Specialist. The Jackson County, Missouri, program uses both the books and website, but utilizes the Nebraska skills test since there is no skills testing performed through the Junior Master Horseman program and the Nebraska levels program for its level three youth. “The members use the books for their project meetings and self directed learning, then go online to complete the written testing,” Mach said. In Jackson County, Kansas, the 4-H Hoofbeats youth are also utilizing the Junior Master Horseman program. Lisa Smith, adult leader of the Hoofbeats, said there are about 10 youth in the group and they are using the level books and the web site. They only recently have started with the program, but so far have found “the information is very good.” Smith said she likes the interactivity of the website and called the program “excellent resources, especially for Panorama, hippology and judging.” She said the Hoofbeats usually do more of their riding activities during the nicer weather months and then do their “book knowledge” during the winter months when the days are shorter and riding time is more limited. “I’ve found the books have a combination of materials for younger kids and older kids,” Smith said.

Shopping for a

Western Lifestyle written and photographed by Carolyn Kaberline

Ann’s Turquoise A love of Native American jewelry has led to a second career for Ann Ortiz of Topeka after she retired from teaching first grade students in the city’s USD 501 District. That career, which began with an investment of only $1500, has led Ortiz, her son Todd, and her daughter Lesli across the country selling exquisitely designed turquoise jewelry at some of the nation’s largest horse and stock shows. “We’ve kept growing from jewelry in the back of a Jeep to jewelry in a 450 Ford truck and a 42-foot trailer,” Ortiz says. In addition to jewelry designed by well-known artists, Ann’s Turquoise also carries Double D western wear, Old Gringo boots, Kippy’s belts and handbags, and items for the home. While customers can find her at such venues as the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Frontier Days in Cheyenne, the World Championship Quarter Horse Show in Oklahoma City, and the American Royal in Kansas City, items also can be ordered through her website.

In addition, Brown also takes custom orders and feels that trying to find what people want is “good customer service.” That customer service extends to making repairs to saddles and other riding equipment in the store’s shop area. Over the years Brown has added trailer sales to his business and also offers an assortment of feeds.

It’s hard to believe that a New York City native would own a store devoted to the Western lifestyle, but that’s exactly what Bryden Becker does. Becker was a senior vice-president of a marketing firm in New York when he met his wife Jennifer, a native of Concordia. When the couple married and decided to raise their family in Kansas, they both knew they wanted to open a store dedicated to the Western way of life they both loved. The Beckers began with clothing and soon added custom furniture to their inventory. Now the upscale store is divided about equally between the two. Their business philosophy is simple: “We’re trying to add as much to your experience as possible whether you’re in the store or online. We want to help make your experience as enjoyable as possible.”

Superhorse Triple - ‘05, ‘07, ‘08


J.D. Holland and Rella Fox earned the 2008 AQHYA World Heeling Championship under the guidance of Brad Lund (far right). Lund has trained the Holland family and their horses to multiple AQHA World Championships, including J.D.’s three, Jim’s 2008 AQHA Select Heading Championshiop, and Lund’s first AQHA Superhorse award on With All Probability in 2005.

rad Lund and J.D. shared something in common last year—they were their own competition for world champion honors. While J.D. rode his own horses Rella Fox and Pac Rat Jack to AQHYA World and Reserve Champion titles in Heeling, Lund rode Sue C Shiner, owned by Garth and Amanda Gardiner, Ashland, Kansas and Roo Star, owned by Melissa Ann Miller, Belton, Texas to the AQHA World Champion and Reserve Champion Senior Heading titles. But, because Lund earned a score of 227 on both horses, the judges decided Roo Star would be the 2008 AQHA Senior Heading World Champion, a win that helped him earn the 2008 AQHA Superhorse title. This 2008 Superhorse victory was a “three-peat” for Lund, winning in 2007 with Garth and Amy Gardiner’s Shiners Diamond Jill and in 2005 with Jim and Michele Holland’s With All Probability. The Kansas “ropemaster” topped his latest Superhorse award when Roo Star and Lund won the inaugural AQHA Roping Most Valuable Horse Award.

KQHA Foundation Receives

Robert H. Young Memorial Gift


he Kansas Quarter Horse Association Foundation received a bequest from a very special person, Robert H. Young, of Salina, who passed away in 2007. Robert was an exceptional person who benefited from his experiences with horses. His cousin Marian Lee Turner has been a longtime member of KQHA and AQHA and has been a fixture in the speed classes at the AQHA World Show. While Robert was never a member of KQHA he was a member of AQHA and was proud of his mare Pudden. KQHA is honored that the scholarship fund has been selected as a beneficiary of his estate. If you want proof that the disabled riding program has value and can provide benefits which last a lifetime you need look no further. A special thanks to Kathy Green and Ann Zimmerman for providing us with this information.
