In our July installment of “We’d Love to Own,” trainer Russell Dilday said that featured cow horse, Topsails Rien Maker, was headed back into the show pen at big-title events after winning his third World’s Greatest Horseman title earlier this year. This weekend, the 12-year-old stallion stole the show at the World’s Richest Stock Horse event in Paso Robles, California, with a repeat win after taking the title in 2008. “Slider” is the all-time leading cow horse earner, with $320,000 in the earnings bank.
A 655.5 composite score (217 herd work, 217.5 reined work, 221 cow work) added $10,000 to the horse’s lifetime earnings. History seems to repeat itself with this horse, so we’re pretty sure we’ll see him in the winner’s circle once again.
