In 2002, I competed with my stallion at our 1st APHA district competition near Saskatoon. This was our first effort as beginners. We won 2nd in Amateur Halter Stallions and Reserve Grand Champion Stallion. Ribbons were won in Western Pleasure and Western Horsemanship.
In 2003, I used Cactus Bars McCue at Lakeland College arena, Vermilion, Alberta in performance events:
- Ranch Club
- Working Cowhorse
- Roping and cutting
- Team Roping
Ed had not ridden his Cactus since the spring of 2003. They decided they had better get out again. They entered in the fall APHA show at Saskatoon. They only rode & practiced a small part of 2 days just 1 month before the show. That was the only riding this stallion had in the last 6.5 years!! Then on show day, October 3rd & 4th, 2009 they excelled quite well. They placed 3rd in Western Pleasure, 2nd in barrel racing & 3rd in pole bending. The fans & judges were treated to a good show. Many people marvelled as this stallion handled so well in the show ring and acted so nicely among the many horses as they waited their turn to compete.
The stallion has an excellent disposition, conformation and bone. He passes his good qualities on to his offspring. They have been used for working cattle at feedlots, pastures and ranches and for competition purposes.
