The sorrel mare Glowin was named the top AQHA Ranching Heritage-bred horse at the Adequan® Select World.

Glowin and Douglas Pritchett of Amarillo were the world champions in team penning and ranch sorting at the event.

The Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage program recognizes the quality American Quarter Horse ranch horses being raised on working cattle ranches. These horses demonstrate the athletic ability, soundness and cow sense needed to not only work on a ranch, but also to perform in any show ring or rodeo arena. Ranching Heritage Breeders produce horses that are exclusively eligible to compete for more than $100,000 each year in Zoetis AQHA Ranching Heritage Challenges, as well as for other awards open only to Ranching Heritage-bred horses.

As the owner of the top RHB-bred horse of the show, Pritchett received $250 and a specially designed trophy.

Glowin is a 12-year-old mare by the Doc’s Hickory stallion Shiver Shake and out of Sly Glo Return by Hollywood Return. The mare was bred by AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeder Dick Cogdell of Tulia, Texas. As the breeder, Cogdell also received $250.

The mare has National Cutting Horse Association earnings and has earned 19 AQHA points. She is the sibling to the earners of more than $150,000 in NCHA competition, including half or full siblings Jinglin ($40,731), A Wish Away ($37,300), Double L Lena ($31,532) and Slya ($31,616).

To find out if your horse is enrolled in the Zoetis Ranching Heritage Breeder program and eligible to compete for these rich purses, call competition coordinator Terrie Lovelady at 806-378-4341.
