High Plains Journal's Pages for the Working Horseman


Laynie Wilson of Reading, Kansas, competes on Miss Flaming Rio at the Kansas National Barrel Horse Association State Finals in 2014.

Going strong at 29, Rio takes several families, generations to rodeo honors

“Rio is a horse of a lifetime. She’s absolutely the perfect horse if there ever was one,” exclaimed Leah Tenpenny Wilson of Reading.

“I rode and won at rodeos on Rio when I was in junior high, and now our six-year-old daughter Laynie is riding Rio, and winning at rodeos, too,” continued Wilson, who along with her husband, Adam, have been lifelong accomplished rodeo contestants.

The 29-year-old gray Quarter Horses mare, registered as Miss Flaming Rio, is well known throughout rodeo circuits of the Midwest. That’s not just from one cowgirl, but for several families, and even more riders, all taking their share of the winners’ pot on her back.

First stallion service auction a success for 4-H, UA horse judging program

A stallion service auction that benefited the 4-H equine program and the University of Arkansas horse judging team went so well that planning is underway for a second one.

“We brought in $17,400, and for our first year, we were pretty pleased with that,” said Mark Russell, assistant professor-equine for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. “This is unique. We don’t know of any other 4-H program doing anything like this.”
