2018 Congress Champion The Born Legacy to Stand at Dry River Ranch in 2019

GoHorseShow is hot on the trail of big news from the Congress, and we would like to announce that AQHA World and Congress Champion, The Born Legacy (Dutch), will be standing at Dry River Ranch located in Weatherford, Texas, in 2019. The stunning bay stallion is by the late, Good I Will Be and out of Pretty Hot And Sonny and owned by Chavez Enterprises of Pilot Point, Texas.

“Alex Chavez came to me at the Paint World and asked if we would be interested in standing him,” says Stephen Stephens of Dry River Ranch, who talked to GoHorseShow back at his stalls in the Gilligan. “There aren’t very many sons of Good I Will Be and I thought it would be a perfect mesh for all the mare owners and a great addition to our lineup.”

Stephens adds, “Dutch shows great versatility like his father and has followed in his footsteps in the performance halter. Good I Will Be was an AQHA Select World Champion in the Amateur Performance Halter. Dutch is also being campaigned in the trail, western pleasure, halter and has been shown in the English.”

The 2013 stallion is an NSBA World and AQHA Reserve World Champion and now a 2018 Congress Champion with his win in the Open Performance Halter Stallions with Ross Roark at the lead. Dutch will also be shown at the AQHA World Show in the Performance Halter Stallions and he is qualified to compete in the Junior Trail, Level 3 and Level 2, and the Junior Western Pleasure, Level 3 and Level 2 in Oklahoma City.

“I’m also excited that he is out of a Hotrodders Jet Set mare because I’m a huge fan of that bloodline, and I’m excited to be given the opportunity to work with Alexandra Chavez to promote him as a sire,” Stephens states.

The Born Legacy is offering a special of $500 off his breeding fee of $1,500 until October 31st. Dutch is also 5-panel negative. For more information about breeding to this up-and-coming sire, please visit the Dry River Ranch website for more details.
