While Cash is technically no longer my horse, he belongs to my mom now, he is still part of the family and I'm lucky enough to still be able to compete on him when I need to. He is the type of horse that dreams are made of. He started his career with me as an all around show horse competing in English, western and speed events while also doing ranch work and ponying colts on the side. From there we had him started roping and that eventually led him into the mounted shooting arena where he has found his true calling. This horse absolutely loves his job and is consistently at the top of the results! While he loves to go out and make a top 1D run he's equally as happy to slow down and lope through a course.....he just wants to be out there shooting.

Quigley is my number one boy in the shooting arena these days. Unfortunately, we missed quite a few shoots this year but we're planning to be back at it next season. He is so honest and easy to compete on, I know what I have every time I ride into the arena. We took a bad fall at the ND State shoot this year but came back a couple weeks later to win our first overall together at the Feud at the Flying D. I'm looking forward to the future with this fun little horse!

Basic Black Angus

2011

AQHA

Angus has really matured into a big gorgeous gelding! Angus has found his calling in life and it's not in the arena. This big guy loves the open country, trail riding and working cattle are what makes him happy. He is happy to go all day climbing hills, going through creeks and rivers, and will basically go through, up or down anything I point him at. He's really turned into a dependable, honest and fun horse this year.

Jesse has taken over Norman's training from me. This guy is proving to have been a great purchase. Besides being gorgeous he's an incredible little cow horse, good to trail ride on and is showing a lot of promise as a shooting horse.

Cricket is our newest purchase! He's a tiny, quick footed, catty little horse with a great start on him. Next summer should be really fun working with him.

Chavez is a super cool little horse. He belongs to my mom, but as she wasn't using him much anymore we decided to add him to our herd. He's so fun to ride and have in the barn! We'll be using him around the ranch.

Shotae is my retired all around gelding. He put in many years as my number one horse showing in both English and western classes, speed events and team roping. He doesn't get rode much anymore but is happy and spoiled in his retirement! He lives with the mares and youngsters and is king of the pasture.
