Lyndee was quoted in an article titled:
"5 Tips on Finding Sleepers" in
THE AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE JOURNAL J U LY 2 0 0 8...
Invest in a young horse with a stellar pedigree.
WHITEHORSESCANTJUMP WON LYNDEE Stairs of Hanford, California, more than $200,000 and took her to the
Dodge National Finals Circuit twice
where she was in the top five both times. She helped Lyndee qualify for multiple circuit finals, and together they earned
rookie of the year and a championship in their circuit.
Nationally, they earned rookie of the year in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association.
Lyndee has been training barrel horses for more than 20 years
and will overlook some conformation faults for a good pedigree.
During her tenure as a clinician, trainer and futurity
competitor, Lyndee realized that sometimes a person is just in
the right place at the right time. But knowledge is often what
separates the buyer from the tire kicker.
She advises horse buyers or trainers without a lot of money to
get together as much as they can afford to spend and buy young.
“That’s what I’ve done in the past,” Lyndee said of buying
“Whitehorsescantjump I bought as a yearling.
I based it on her pedigree and that her mother was a full
sister to Marilyn Camarillo’s WNFR horse. Good horses are
just like good men: they have to have good mamas.”
In addition, Whitehorsescantjump also had Shawnee Bug
in her pedigree. Knowing that the Shawnee Bug line had
made a lot of NFR barrel horses, Lyndee laid out a mere
$1,500 for the filly.
Lyndee said if you have $4,000 to spend, instead of going
out and buying someone’s washed-up or problem horse,
invest that money in a younger horse or a 3-year-old. As time
goes on, you’ll be able to afford to send the horse for training.
If you are a novice or the horse is for a youth, it is imperative
to find a trainer who can guide you in the horse buying
process and to buy an older, trustworthy
“been there, done that” horse,
All of Lyndee’s knowledge, likes and
dislikes came together to deceive her
with a horse named Little Dan Do It.
A customer brought Lyndee a 16-hand
3-year-old to ride.
“Had I been looking I probably
never would have bought him due
to his size,” Lyndee said, explaining
that she normally rides horses
about 14.3. “His father is a fourtime
AQHA champion in barrels
and poles and sired money earning
performers of more than $124,000:
Rene Dan Jet by Jet Of Honor. I
paid $5,000 for him.”
While the horse wasn’t what Lyndee
normally considers for her barn, she
was open to the horse because he rode
well and he had a stellar pedigree.
