Featured Stock Horse - DUAL TRAIN
DUAL TRAIN & RICK (NRCHA DERBY)
- 1995 AQHA Sorrel Mare, Dual Peppy X Nics Train X Reminic. Dual Train was purchased by Rick, from the Ward Ranch, in 1999. The mare is the foundation stock horse of the Wind River Ranch.
- Rick created a new Louisiana equine industry around this mare - The Reined Cow Horse Industry.
In 1998 Dual Train won the Paso Robles Snaffle Bit Reined Cow Horse Futurity and placed in the top 10 Finals of the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, Reno, Nevada. She's an NRCHA Superior cow horse, an AQHA Reining and Cow Horse Champion and World Qualifier, as well as a money earner in Reining, Cutting and Cow Horse.
This great mare carries on the winning tradition of the Hall of Fame Mare "FILINIC" and the Wind River Ranch stock horses by being a proven Reined Cow Horse producer by having a foal in the 2013 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, Reno, Nevada in two separate Open Division Finals - Open and Intermediate Open. Her foal, "Johnny" is owned and ridden by Clayton Edsall - Clements, California. Congratulations to this team for an outstanding display of horsemanship! Even though the pair took a terrible spill in the Open Finals "Johnny" with a catch rider - Justin Wright, aboard finished the Open Finals in the top 25. What a great horse!!
