Meet the self-described “farm kid from Kalamazoo,” who took the reins as AQHA president in 2008. Ken Mumy’s contributions to AQHA’s programs included developing affiliate agreements and rejuvenating the AQHA Champion award. Mumy was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2014.
From the show pen to the breeding shed, Mr Conclusion made a tremendous impact on the halter industry. During his time in the show ring, he earned 85 firsts, 57 grand championships and 16 reserve championships. Mr Conclusion became the No. 1 sire of AQHA and AQHYA world and reserve world champions in 1992, and still holds that title even after his passing in 1998.
