C.M. (Bill) Squier was inducted into the Kansas Quarter Horse Association (KQHA) Hall of Fame on Oct. 14. The purpose of the KQHA Hall of Fame is to honor those people and horses that have contributed to the KQHA and impacted Quarter Horses in Kansas.
In addition to being a rancher, Squier bred, trained, exhibited and judged Quarter Horses. He competed in cutting, and his notable mounts include 1962 KQHA cutting champion Aledo Red Man (by Old Man). He also trained and showed KQHA Hall of Fame member Rondo Leo (Leo’s Question x War Bird), who sired Mr Gun Smoke (out of Kansas Cindy x Kansas Star). Rondo Leo was owned by Harley and Mamie Price, of Bazine, Kansas.
