In this third installment of our popular series, “Get to Know the Horses in the Equine Chronicle Congress Masters,” we have another Masters first-timer, a former Masters Champion and Reserve Champion, and two trainers who will be competing on horses with a special bloodline connection. We would like to introduce you to Taft Dickerson with Gettin Pretty, Gil Galyean with She’s Blazing Cool, Shane Dowdy with Lope Out The Doubt, and Shane Pope with I Dance In The Dark.

Exhibitor: Gil Galyean

Horse: Shes Blazing Cool, aka “Zing”

Sex: Mare

Sire: Blazing Hot

Dam: Cool Krymsun Lady (this mare was Reserve in the Congress Masters with Gil Galyean)

Owner: Starland Ranch LLC

Interesting Fact: “Starland Ranch owned Suddenly A Cool Lady, [Cool Krymsun Lady’s first baby] who I won the Masters on in 2011,” Galyean says. “They bought this mare as a baby from Susan Knapp. This will be her debut obviously, and we’re hoping to do our best.”

Description: “I definitely see characteristics of both her sire and her dam in her. She is a pretty mare with a flaxen mane and tail.”

This mare’s half sibling will also be competing in the Masters. What are the odds? “Pat Heeley’s [Gotta Knapp For That] is by Zippos Mr Goodbar [and out of Cool Krymsun Lady]. You will see that some [with embryo transfers]. They may not all be in the same class like this, but the great mares are definitely having two, three, or four babies in one year.”

How did this horse get her interesting barn name? “Ha Ha, she has a bit of zing in her I guess!”

Exhibitor: Shane Dowdy

Horse: Lope Out The Doubt

Sex: Stallion (The only stallion we have profiled thus far that will be competing in the Masters. The majority of entries are mares.)

Sire: No Doubt I’m Lazy

Dam: Sweet Talking Jeannie

Owner: Linda Lyda Swenson

Why did you pick this horse for the Equine Chronicle Congress Masters? “Because I liked him. I think he’s pretty, and I think he’s a good mover.”

You also showed this horse’s mother. Do you see any similarities? “Yes, there’s a lot of similarities with his deep bay color, which his mother and father both have. He’ll move a lot like his mom and dad. I thought the finished product would be pretty much the same to those two.”

Exhibitor: Taft Dickerson

Horse: Gettin Pretty, aka “Pretty”

Sex: Mare

Sire: Gettin Impulsive

Dam: A mare by Huntin For Chocolate

Owner: Donnie Dickerson

Why did you pick this horse for the Equine Chronicle Congress Masters? “She’s really small but good-legged,” Dickerson says. “She’s also really broke. She was one that I didn’t want to push a lot. I’ve been waiting to bring her around and get her ready to go have a good shot at winning some good money.”

Is it more or less pressure showing for an owner that’s a family member than for a client? “It’s definitely a little more pressure showing for family.”

This will be your first time competing in the Masters. What are you feeling? “I’m nervous and excited. It’s a little bit of both. I always get kind of nervous when I show those big classes. I think if you don’t get nervous about it then you really don’t care that much.”

Exhibitor: Shane Pope

Horse: I Dance In The Dark, aka “Patty”

Sex: Mare

Sire: Radical Rodder

Dam: I Like it in the Dark

Owner: Randy Kimmel

Interesting Fact: “She will be the fourth baby that I’ve shown out of I Like It In the Dark,” Pope says. “She’s a lot like her mother. She looks just like her and uses her head and neck just like her. She’s the closest thing that I’ve seen to her mother. She’s black and colored just like her. The other ones have been really good horses by Invitation Only and Zippos Mr Goodbar. This is the first Radical Rodder out of her that I’ve shown, and it looks like it’s working. We’re going to go back to him and breed again next year.”

Why did you pick this horse for the Equine Chronicle Congress Masters?

“She has the look that’s really going to suit that class. She is really fancy-looking. She uses her ears good. She is just an exceptional filly. She’s a really good mover and has a lot of natural ability and natural rhythm. A lot of two-year-olds might have the natural ability but not the rhythm. She’s got a lot of rhythm.”

How many times have you shown in the Masters?

“I’ve shown in the Masters three or four times. This is the first one that I’ve had for Randy. I’ve had a couple for them for the Masters in the past, and we decided not to show them due to the best interest of the horse. So this is working out good.”
