APHA World Show
Devin Warren started the APHA World Show with a bang winning Back to Back Junior Reining World Championships on Diamonds N Guns, owned by Lisa Trujillo. Dinero del Cielo, owned and shown by Devin Warren, gave a great performance for her second time in the pen, placing third in the Junior Reining. Both of these mares were home raised and we are very proud of them. A big Thanks to Lisa Trujillo for believing in Diamonds N Guns and giving her the opportunity to get in the pen. A huge Thank you to Patsy Meehan for selling us Dinero Del Cielo and for continuing to breed great paint horses.
In the Senior Reining a big CONGRATULATIONS to Reserve World Champion Little Gun Olena, ridden by Devin Warren and owned by Eric Golting, and GunStinger, owned by Cindy Goodburn, placing 4th in the Amateur Senior Reining. These are two great horses we are lucky to have in our program.
