2019 Reining Owner Statistics

The Equi-Stat Owner Statistics were first published by Quarter Horse News in 2012. This statistical section was established to recognize cutting, reining and reined cow horse owners for their horses’ accomplishments in the show pen. The owners range from veterans — who have been in the industry for decades — to new- comers, all of whom are equally important and a mainstay to future industry success.

These owner statistics include major limited-age event earnings recorded in Equi-Stat through Dec. 31, 2018, in cutting, reining and reined cow horse. All cutting weekend earnings recorded through August 2018 are included, as is ancillary reining money listed in Equi-Stat from 1988 through Aug. 31, 2018. The reined cow horse horse show monies reflected are those recorded in Equi-Stat from 1993 through August 2018. Closed incentives that are not open to all horses are not included.

Equi-Stat’s Up-and-Comer charts include earnings from 2013 through Dec. 31, 2018, with the same limitations as listed above in regard to any-age earnings. These on-the- rise owners are beginning to establish their names among the all-time industry leaders within their respective disciplines. In order to qualify as an up-and-comer, owners had to end the 2012 show season with owner earnings of $50,000 or less in cutting, $20,000 or less in reining and $10,000 or less in reined cow horse.

Earnings attributed to a dam in Equi- Stat include monies earned by clones of her offspring. Similarly, monies earned by the offspring of clones are included in the respective generation’s statistics.
