One of the most decorated National Reining Horse Association sires has done it again. This time, Wimpys Little Step can thank his 12 offspring in the 2016 NRHA Futurity Finals for helping him achieve his newest milestone, NRHA $9 million sire. At 17 years old, Wimpys Little Step is only the second sire to reach this status. The palomino stallion, bred by Hilldale Farm, is owned by Xtra Quarter Horses, LLC of Purcell, Oklahoma.

With several accolades in and out of the show pen, Wimpys Little Step is by NRHA’s newest $3 million sire Nu Chex To Cash and out of Leolita Step. Wimpys Little Step took the reining world with Shawn Flarida by the reins, winning the 2002 All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurity and the NRHA Futurity in the same year. 

During the 2016 NRHA Futurity, with six offspring in the NRHA Futurity non-pro fnals, one offspring of Wimpys Little Step took home a non-pro futurity championship. Wimpys Little Jessie (out of Jessie Dot Tari) ridden by Taylor Zimmerman won the Level 1 non-pro, in addition to placing third in the Level 3 non-pro, seventh in the Level 4 non-pro and third in the Level 2 non-pro. Collectively, Zimmerman and Wimpys Little Jessie took home an estimated $44,600.   

Aside from the non-pro finals, there were an additional six offspring representing Wimpys Little Step in the 2016 NRHA Open Futurity. Altogether, Wimpys Little Step’s 12 money-earning offspring made more than $106,810.00 in the 2016 NRHA Futurity Finals.
