BARDELLS LAST FLAME  

2001 AQHA Grey gelding : Finished 1/2D barrel horse



"Jet" was purchased in early 2006 out of Arizona. He was barely patterned, but had a nice foundation on him. Since buying Jet, he has won and placed at every level of barrel racing, from open 4D to rodeos, Jet has been one of Amanda's #1 mount for years. Now, coming 16 years old, Jet is still sound and sane and the plan is to continue to run Jet at the bigger races while he still wants to compete. 


Jet has been on and off the barrel racing circuit for the last decade due to health issues with having kidney failure and kissing spine. Our goal is to keep Jet happy and sound and running as long as he feels he wants to. 


Jet is by NFR sire, GREY BARDELL, out of pro rodeo winning daughter of FLAMING JET, Jets Flaming Glory won over $300,000 as a barrel horse and has produced many money earners!! 


Jet is truly one of a kind and has taken Amanda to many wins. He is one we plan to keep until his last breath. 




A MAGIC BIANKUS 

2007 AQHA Grey mare : Finished 1/2D barrel horse



Bought in her 4 year old year, Banks came to us with a great foundation that was ready to move forward with patterning her and gearing her up for a 2012 futurity hopeful.  


Carrying the Currin Ranch famous -23 brand on her left hip, everyone who sees her knows she by 2x NFR qualifier and producer of multiply 1D and pro rodeo winners, CAPTAIN BIANKUS! Banks bottom side is just as strong, her dam is a proven daughter of New Design, and has produced barrel money earners. 


We ran Banks her futurity year placing at 4 of the 5 futurities we entered on her. We continued to season her and have won monies in 1D at multiply races and has also been a hole out of placing at PRCA rodeos. 


April 2015, Banks cut her superficial flexor tendon and we decided to breed her to RARE NEWS for a 2016 foal while we give her time off to heal and come back sound. We are looking forward to competing on this nice mare again in 2017! 



OH OUR BROTHER 

2003 AQHA Dun Gelding - Finished 2D/3D barrel horse, rope horse and all around hand 


When we added "Stitch" to the program, the only reason we looked at him, he was a solid sane ranch horse out of Helena, MT and fit what Carly needed to have fun with. After spending a couple seasons at the jr. rodeos being a flag horse, steer daubing and some breakaway, he got put into the barrel pen. 


Stitch ran 2012, 2013, 2014 as a barrel horse in Amanda's string and was consistently placing 2D/3D at the big races. Stitch makes the same run every time, easiest horse to run that we have. As of 2015, Stitch has been retired as a barrel horse but gets used daily on the ranch ponying colts, taking mom on a trail ride and giving a select few clients lessons. This is one of those horses who has been there done that and is not replaceable. We've had many offers on Stitch, but right now, he is probably going to stay put on the ranch as a using horse.
