Road to the Horse – Wild Card Competitors
The Road to the Horse Wild Card competitors (including winner Jim Anderson) dish on their American Quarter Horses, bred and raised by the historic Four Sixes Ranch of Guthrie, Texas. The Wild Card competition is part of Road to the Horse International 2014, held in Lexington, Kentucky.
Before there were American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame stallions Peppy San and Mr San Peppy, there was their sire, Leo San. The 1949 stallion by Leo was an extremely influential sire. His foals won in the show ring, on the racetrack and in the cutting pen, and were shown in every AQHA event. He died in 1968, but more than 30 years later, Leo San was still among the top 10 paternal sires of AQHA horses. Leo San was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame this year.
American Quarter Horse breeder Leroy Webb grew up in the cow camps of New Mexico and West Texas before becoming a cowboy himself. A book by Davis L. Ford, “The Last Cowboy,” documents Webb’s life, which includes training and showing many AQHA high-point horses and world champions. Webb was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame this year.
