My parents and I took a trip to Pueblo, Colorado in the summer of 1988. I had just graduated high school at the end of May. We found ourselves pulling up to the NHSRA finals in a 1976 Chevy pickup and a 16 foot bumper pull trailer. I was there to compete in the boys […]

The Hancock line of horses is one of the lines that have had a huge impact on using horses for nearly a century. People either love them or hate them, and they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, so to speak. But, they are sure stout, tough, sound horses and they’ll be around for a long […]

Jim and the RO cowboss, Jake, were lucky enough to get entered in the Jordan Valley Big Loop this year. As excited as they were to get a shot at the prestigious trophy saddles, my excitement level registered a close second on the I-can’t-wait-to-get-to-the-rodeo meter.

In my travels around the western USA, I am always on the lookout for a standout combination when seeking a stallion. One that has the speed and the mind.  I want to have extra speed and quiet speed, yet with thoughtfulness and forwardness…low to the ground slipping along. Touchet, WA is the home of Brad […]
