|Our Relocation from Pennsylvania|
|Jack Hertig and his wife Dee moved to a "kinder, gentler" climate in 1985 by relocating to Texas. Coming with them is 30+ years experience in the Horse Industry. They no longer stand any stallions and are finishing raising their last reining horse bred foal crop from 2006 out of their proven AQHA and APHA mares.|
|World Standings and current direction|
|In 1983, Jack Hertig and
Dee piloted PRINT OLIVE to Top Ten in NRHA World Standings in TWO events,
- he being one of the few paints shown at that time in NRHA history.
1976 model Print Olive was retired to live out his days on the ranch,
after 2000 no longer was at stud and passed away at age 29 in August
of 2004. Print Olive is buried by our slide track.
PRINTS TOY, a son of Print Olive out of Dixies Ms Cowbeau (NRHA monies earned) placed in the finals of the 2001 APHA World 3 yr old Reining Challenge. In 2002 he won the NRHA Open Reining at the Glen Rose Stampede and was 2nd in the Open at the Lubbock TX Sandstorm Ride and Slide Reining. 2002 WTRHA OPEN CHAMPION and APHA ROM earned in only 2 shows - gaining 9 pts from the first show. (REFERENCE SIRE)
During the years, Jack has taken various candidates to World Show Top Ten and futurity Top Ten placings.
Jack's non-pros and youth have experienced great success in the show pen AND have done so even without his presence at shows!! The horses he has trained have had many years of success in the show pen.
Our focus over decades was breeding our limited amount of broodmares to raise high quality reining candidates. The pretty SOUND athlete was always our goal.
Our current direction is slowing down and enjoying life with a few horses. Please check our reining horses for sale page for some very qualified candidates to add to your program as you take advantage of our "reining horse controlled dispersal".
Jack feels a great combination for reining candidates is a horse that possesses Hollywood Gold, Doc Bar and King 234. Hollywood Gold for the stop, Doc Bar for the turn around and King 234 for the sanity and calmness.
This is the ROOT of all the famous "names" showing today!!!
