2011 Miss Smokin Rio

2011 Miss Smokin Rio  SOLD Thanks to Kyle Richardson of Hyrum, Utah


This gorgeous mare is by Rio Starlight who is a 15.2 hand 1,200 lb buckskin with a great confirmation to go with his great pedigree. He is by Grays Starlight, an all-time Leading Sire producing over $10 million in cutting (NCHA), reined cow horse (NRCHA) and reining horses (NRHA).  In 2007 Grays Starlight was the Leading Sire of Broodmares sold in both NRHA and NRCHA sales and the second leading sire of broodmares sold in NCHA sales. Grays Starlight is by AQHA/NCHA Hall of Fame Inductee Peppy San Badger, the all-time number 2 sire $28 Million of performance horses. Rio is out of Smokin Kitty Rio the 1993 NCHA Open Reserve World Champion with earnings exceeding $65.000. Smokin Kitty Rio is by NCHA and NRCHA greats Smokin JoseDoc Quixote and AQHA/NRHA Hall of Fame Mr Gun Smoke.

Rio has his ROM in Reining and qualified for the 2004 AQHA world show in reining. Rio was being shown in the working cow horse events and has won multiple events, qualifying for the 2006 AQHA world show; he was also be shown at the Working Cow Horse World Show.

The Dam goes back to some all-time greats such as Skipper W, Music Mount, Three Bars, Sugar Bars, Joe Hancock, Lucky Blanton, Man O War, King, Poco Bueno, and Leo San.  She was a big soggy buttermilk buckskin who stood 15-3 hands tall.  She was an excellent using mare and was shown in reining until she was crippled by a training injury.  Her foals have gone on to carry her size and disposition, this gelding has the size and ability to drag cows to the fire all day or move cows on the mountain from dusk to dawn.  

This mare has been started correctly and has been out to branding roping hundreds of cows.   She has been very trainable and is extremely intelligent, she has a big hip and we are anxious to see what kind of foals she throws.  She is being ridden in the mountains moving cows and packing salt.  She is a beautiful palomino with four white socks, a stripe down her face, and a beautiful blonde mane and tail.
