The story of how this baby came to be is quite miraculous actually. Its the culmination of two horses of a lifetime, if there's such a thing? Can you really have two? Apparently you can. An off the track mare purchased as a broodmare, turned barrel racing champion meets a love at first sight stallion that we could have never imagined having the opportunity to own. But here we are!
Austinista's career started on the track where she earned her ROM and amassed over $9,000 in earnings. In 2014 we purchased her from Terry Moody as a broodmare, but curiosity got the best of us and we decided to ride her first. The first year was spent doing ranch work and riding out in the open. From there she was patterned on the barrels and hauled beginning in the fall of 2015. She won the 2016 Richardton JH Rodeo with our daughter Camryn aboard, 2017 ND NBHA State 1D Title and Fast Time award, and in 2018 earned her first WPRA check. She was also a Roughrider Rodeo Finals round winner before being retired sound in 2019.
We cannot wait to see what's in store for this "dream baby"!
Fun fact: High On Corona was Rare High's first foal.
