There is family around us in times of need, a love one cannot describe, a love that takes over, a smile when most needed: A family, the Reiner family.

There is a special Mom that is working through the early hours of the morning and late into the night to make sure another Mom is taken care of. Thank you Barbi Boyle on behalf of all of us for putting together an amazing fundraiser for a most wonderful friend, wife, daughter and Mom, our own Becky Hanson. A special thank you to family, friends and Brumley Management Group for supporting this special auction”. The words of WCRHA President Ollie Galligan summing up the entire HRRC 2013 experience.

The best of the best came to Las Vegas and leave nothing on the table when competing, but the minute they were out of the show pen, it was all about the Reining Community coming together to look after one of it’s own.
