2020 Buckskin Colt (SOLD Thanks to Lane Kunzler of Benson, UT)


This extremely handsome and flashy colt is by Rio Starlight who is a 15.2 hand 1,200 lb buckskin with a great confirmation to go with his great pedigree. He is by Grays Starlight, an all-time Leading Sire producing over $10 million in cutting (NCHA), reined cow horse (NRCHA) and reining horses (NRHA).  In 2007 Grays Starlight was the Leading Sire of Broodmares sold in both NRHA and NRCHA sales and the second leading sire of broodmares sold in NCHA sales. Grays Starlight is by AQHA/NCHA Hall of Fame Inductee Peppy San Badger, the all-time number 2 sire $28 Million of performance horses. Rio is out of Smokin Kitty Rio the 1993 NCHA Open Reserve World Champion with earnings exceeding $65.000. Smokin Kitty Rio is by NCHA and NRCHA greats Smokin JoseDoc Quixote and AQHA/NRHA Hall of Fame Mr Gun Smoke.

Rio has his ROM in Reining and qualified for the 2004 AQHA world show in reining. Rio was being shown in the working cow horse events and has won multiple events, qualifying for the 2006 AQHA world show; he was also be shown at the Working Cow Horse World Show.

This colt is one of a kind, not often do you find so much character loaded into a double bred Grays Starlight colt.  He is wonderful to be around and lends and draws attention at first glance.  We knew what we were getting with this cross and the near guaranteed conformation is a testament to this colts potential.  He has 3 white socks and a large star on his head, he should have jet black legs above the socks just like his sire.  He is built to travel in some rough country with a short strong back and stout strong legs.  He is bred for cutting, ranching, pleasure, roping, and trail.  With his potential, he could truly go in any direction and challenge placed before him.  We invite you to come check him out today!
