Shining In Town to Stand to the Public

All eyes turn to Shining In Town as he enters the arena with his exquisite palomino coat and flowing mane. His owner and youth rider, Jennifer Neudorf sits up tall on her outstanding stallion and skillfully sweeps all four levels of the Non-Pro at the 2019 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby while Shining In Town’s mane and tail flow with his powerful movements. The crowd cheers on the golden team every time they compete.

Shining In Town’s Pedigree

Known around the barn as “Chubbs,” this outstanding horse has lifetime earnings of $200,000 and is the leading earner of his sire, EquiStat Elite $2 Million Sire Hollywoodstinseltown. He is out of Shine Ann, a daughter of Shining Spark owned by Toyon Ranch in Texas. 

Shining In Town was bred by one of the all-time leading Western performance horse breeders, Carol Rose Quarter Horses. He is 5-panel negative and nominated to the Reining Alberta Performance Program (RAPP) and National Reining Breeders Classic (NRBC), which makes him an excellent stallion for genetic advancements.

Standing to the Public

After some time off following his famed show career, Shining In Town will now stand at stud to the public. Shining In Town is now located at Heule Reining Horses in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, just minutes from the USA/CA border. Chubbs is living the dream in his spacious extra-large stall and a view of the snow-capped mountains.

This is Shining In Town’s first year having semen available to the public and the reining world is definitely excited about it. He is standing at Heule Reining Horses, which will have cooled and frozen semen available within Canada. Toyon Ranch is distributing frozen semen throughout the United States. The breeding fee is $1,750 (chute/frozen included).
