Sire: Sportin A Shiner - AQHA Performance ROM

Dam: Late Draw - Dam of Too Late To Whiz, ApHC Reserve World Champion Reiner


Rose was born and raised here on our farm. She has been well cared for and handled since birth. She has had no soundness or health issues, no injuries and has no bad habits. Rose is current on all health care and is sweet and gentle to handle. She is the first one to meet you at the gate and is well mannered and respectful. Rose is in a growth spurt and currently is just under 14.2 in front and over 14.3 behind. Neither parent stands downhill and Rose will level out as she continues to grow. She should end up between 15 and 15.1. Rose is currently in training to have a few weeks under saddle and was loping circles on the lunge line on her third ride. She is a very pretty mover, good leaded and responsive with a very trainable attitude. She is a cowy looking girl with the saddle on. She is straight legged with good, black feet, a nice neck, shoulder and a beautiful hip. She is low hocked and her big mane and tail are an added plus. Rose is a cute enough mover to do the ranch riding or pleasure as a two year and athletic enough with the pedigree behind her to continue in the reining or cowhorse as a three-year-old. Rose will be turned back out to play and grow after a few weeks of riding. A video will be coming soon.

Rose's solid pedigree has a lot of successful show horses, AQHA and ApHC. Her dam, Late Draw, was unshown but is the dam of Too Late To Whiz, 2011 ApHC Reserve World Champion Snafflebit Reining Horse. Late Draw's sire, Snoopys Smoke Tari, is a ApHC World Champion Reiner and is the sire of World and National Champions. Late Draw's dam, The Luck Of The Draw, lives here at our ranch also and is a Five Time World and National Champion, Versatility Champion and Dam of World Champions. The Luck Of The Draw's dam, Dominoes Eclipse was a fantastic broodmare which put her in the ApHC Hall Of Fame.

Rose's sire, Sportin A Shiner, stands here at our ranch and has his AQHA Performance ROM. His babies are beautiful, talented and have incredible dispositions. He is sired by Shiner's Glo At NIght who is an AQHA Champion and a full brother to the great reinier, Night Time Shiner. Sportin A Shiner's dam is sired by Jacks Revenue, an AQHA Reserve World Champion.

Rose has her ApHC Performance Permit
