“News Flash from US Nationals in Tulsa!”

Courtney Spicer rode Chicago Chaps RS to a double honor today, winning Reserve National Champion Futurity Trail Horse and Reserve National Champion Jr. Trail Horse. Bred by Rancho Sonado, Chicago Chaps (Jullyen el Jamaal x SC Chipawa Chinks x Desperado), is following in the footsteps of his Champion parents. In 2006, Deb Walden Ralls rode Chinks to Reserve National Champion Working Cowhorse, Adult Amateur to Ride. That was her first time at Nationals and our first National Championship!  Breeding this athletic Desperado daughter to the stunning Western Performance and Halter Champion Jullyen, was a great decision.
 
Nan and Dick Walden want to  thank Courtney for starting and bringing along this sweet gelding who always tries 110% to national honors. We also thank Sarah Shawcroft, assistant trainer, Meranda Scott and the entire Rancho Sonado crew. And of course we thank Sheila Varian for her wonderful, consistent bloodlines.
 
Agracie Girl V +++// also won National Top Ten honors with both Nan Walden and Courtney in Amateur and Open Trail.

Introducing Rancho Soñado’s New Stallion, Picante Jullyen V (Jullyen El Jamaal x Precious V)!

Dick and Nan Walden are thrilled to have found this handsome 3-year old colt at the Varian Summer Jubilee in August. We have big plans for him in the Western Pleasure and Working Western World. Tommy Garland and Courtney Spicer will be collaborating to ready him for the Western Pleasure Futurity at Nationals this year. Thanks to both of them and to Sheilia Varian.

Picante’s profile from the Varian catalogue:

Full Brother to Prairie Juell V, Region 1 Champion Mare, Region 1 Res Champion Western Pleasure.

Picante Jullyen V is a big 3 year old stallion. He is strong, substantial and beautiful. A full brother to the exquisite Scottsdale International Reserve Champion 2 Year Old Filly Prairie Juell V, Picante carries the blood of Beauty and Western Pleasure as well as Reining National Champions close up in his pedigree {MHR Princess Bask}.

Jullyen El Jamaal has been a magnificent sire for us and Previous V a very precious broodmare. So there is no surprise Picante is who he is. I see Picante winning National Championships in Western Pleasure or Reining and being a sire of note. He has the bloodlines to do either one or both.
