Behind-the-Scenes Look
In celebration of a new AQHA present and the 2015 Ford F-150, AQHA and Ford Motor Co. joined together at the legendary Four Sixes Ranch for a photo shoot to create an advertisement to be featured  in western magazines, including America’s Horse and The American Quarter Horse Journal.

AQHA was behind the scenes chronicling the project. Watch as world-renowned photographer Wyman Meinzer works with Ford to take AQHA President Dr. Glenn Blodgett and the new model Ford F-150 through a series of locations on the Four Sixes Ranch, where Blodgett works at head veterinarian.

“This project is special to us because it involves the AQHA president and Ford Motor Co., which is one of our great partners that offers a discount to AQHA members looking to buy Ford trucks or cars,” said AQHA Senior Director of Corporate Partnerships and Business Development Leman Wall. “This ad helps showcase the new F-150 and the connection Ford has with AQHA.”

Backdrops for the photo shoot included the famous red Four Sixes barn, the mare barn, Blodgett’s offices and a pasture with dozens of pregnant mares representing current family lines at the Four Sixes, including daughters and granddaughters of Tanquery Gin and Paddys Irish Whisky among others. Meinzer used working cowboys from the ranch as secondary elements.

Stanley Johnston
The late Stanley Johnston of South Dakota liked speed in his ranch horses. Johnston’s breeding program, which featured the lineage of the Hall of Famer Driftwood, produced outstanding barrel racing and rodeo horses. Learn about more the man who did business with a handshake and his legacy. Johnston was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame earlier this year.
