Namgis Horses Make SHOT Debut; Barrel Horse Update

Namgis Horses Make Their Stock Horse of Texas Debut in San Angelo

For Namgis' debute in SHOT Jeremy and Keylee Levi took Namgis D 14 (Annie) and Namgis D 22 (Zannie) who have shown real promise in making excellent versatility horses. Jeremy Levi showed in the cow horse class with Zannie, Namgis D 22, who is a four year old mare that is truly a versatile horse as she has been patterned in barrel racing, is a finished calf horse and has now been in training for ranch horse competitions. Keylee rode Annie, Namgis D 14, in all of the classes: cow horse, reining, ranch trail and ranch pleasure. We were happy with their performance at their first show with some high scores and are excited to see how they do at the next one in Bryan, TX October 3-4.

Here are some highlights of the show!

Kylie Gives an Update on Barrel Horses' Progress

Kylie Ward-Rogers has been pretty busy lately juggling PRCA rodeos, qualifying for the AQHA World Show, finishing out the futurity year for our four year olds, and preparing the three year olds for next year's futurities. She just came back from a PRCA event in Hill City, KS where she and Wolfie ended up splitting 2nd and 3rd place. We asked her for an update on how the horses in training with here are doing and here is what she says about them.

"We split 2nd and 3rd at Hill City, KS. Just getting Wolfie in a different setting- pro rodeo. He is doing great and handles the atmosphere like an old horse. The colts (three year olds) are being hauled to jackpots at least twice a week. They are making progress and finding out their own styles." Namgis D 35 (Pipewrench) and Namgis D 38 (Prissy) are on track and we are adding speed. Namgis D 33 (Chongo) already has the speed and I am just tuning up before I go to a jackpot. Namgis D 32 (Cupcake) is getting more consistant every day."
