In addition to notching a world champion title in working cow horse at the Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show, Trevor Hale and Survive These Lips were honored as the top Ranching Heritage-bred horse at the prestigious show. 

Hale, who is from Perryton, Texas, acquired the mare in 2016. She is a daughter of CD Survivor and out of the Smart Chic Olena mare Lipschic, and was bred by Holy Cow Performance Horses of Santa Ynez, California. 

The pair have multiple world show top-five placings in working cow horse, heading and heeling, and the mare has earned more than $30,000 in National Reined Cow Horse Association and AQHA world show competition, and more than 200 points. 

The Ranching Heritage-bred award is given to the top-placing Ranching Heritage-bred horse, with the tie-breaker going to the horse that defeats the most other horses. 

Ranching Heritage-bred horses are horses bred by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders. Anyone can show these horses, which are eligible for special events such as AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenges.  

The AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder program spotlights the quality horses produced by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders. The program is designed to showcase the qualities of a working ranch horse by recognizing the top Ranching Heritage-bred horses competing at major events.
