6/4/23 Barrel racing 14.8, 13th o/o 284 Winona, MN
5/26/23 Polebending 19.725 Mondovi, WI
May 2023 Race for Roses Polebending champion, dominating both goes!
Bob is a GRITTY, give it his ALL EVERY TIME down the alley! He started his life as a cutter...so has all the fancy buttons and knows how to use himself correctly. The last 10 years, he's been a competive WSCA game horse. I get the pleasure to spruce him up and show the world what a talented little red rocket he is! In just over the month I've had him (after him having the winter off), he has consistently smoked pole runs, winning 4 of 6 runs, 1 tip and 1 second place - including a 19 second run. Since he wasn't in great shape, I was just making 1 run until I felt he was in better shape. The night he ran the 19 second poles I thought he was conditioned enough to run barrels too. It was hot and humid...and maybe 20 minutes after his pole run that we ran barrels. I pulled him into the 1st barrel, causing us to tip...but he was working great...unfortunately after his barrel run, he bled. Since then, we treated him and now run him on lasix. He has been so good at the gate now after running on lasix and just finished a 3 day barrel race with running 1D, 13th out of 284 on Sunday!
Bob has been a very competitive game horse, 11 second pole weaving, 19 second polebending, 1D in TOUGH barrel competition, wins local jackpots & horse shows.
Great on trails. PHENOMENAL cow horse!

Bobby Light - 14.2H, 2009', Sorrel AQHA Gelding
Bobby is a quick, athletic, laid back, easy-going 5 year old gelding. He is finished enough to work a cow with no bridle,knows his way around the sorting pen well, and is as comfy and easy to ride! He also lopes a super cute barrel pattern and would make a nice barrel and pole horse. Super gentle, sweet, quiet, and uncomplicated! He is an own son of CD Lights (LTE $233,383) and out of a Smart Mate mare! Bobby has a nice, soft, big stop, soft trot and lope, easy turn arounds,side passes, backs up; All without a bridle! He works a gate well, stands quiet for mount and dismount! Great ground manners, easy to catch, lead, load, haul, clip, bathe, groom, pick feet, saddle, bridle, and quiet for the vet and the farrier. Bobby is a great all around, athletic, laid back guy the whole family can have fun riding! Please check out his videos.
