. Texas Kicker debuted as a 3-year-old at the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity, where he finished 4th in the Open. A year later on, he was named the 1991 American Quarter Steed Association (AQHA) Junior Reining World Champion after marking a then-record 228.
The Lou and Wanda Waters-bred stallion went on to earn his Efficiency Register of Merit (ROM) from AQHA, and get approved for the 1992 AQHA World Show in Senior citizen Reining. In his restricted show profession, “& ldquo; Tex & rdquo; made a total of $4,594 and 13.5 AQHA points –– all with Dick in the saddle.
As soon as Texas Kicker showed his worth in the show pen, he moved his talents to the breeding shed, siring 46 money- and point-earners. His kids have actually garnered a complete $157,458, according to Equi-Stat, in reining, cutting, reined cow steed and barrel racing. Leading his offspring record is the 1992 Paint stallion Kick Dee Bar (out of Lara Dee Bar [PT] x Mr World [PT].
Kick Dee Bar (PT), a significant sire in his own right with 15 money-earners, generated $28,550 in reining fields. Revealed mostly by Steve Schwartzenberger and Shevin Haverty, the equine succeeded in both Open and Non-Pro compeition.
Texas Kicker’s second-highest money-earner, and his No. 1 reined cow equine performer, is Texata. The 1994 stallion runs out the Doc Bar mare Docata, and he built up overall performance earnings of even more than $20,000.
In addition to laying Texas Kicker to rest, the Piepers are mourning the loss of their son, Brad, after he was killed in an automobile accident on Sept. 25.
