Breeder: Judy Yancey, Roanoke, TX


Harper was given ATA approval during the October 1998 board meeting based on the quality of his offspring, his excellent performance record as a First-Year Green Hunter and his 1994 Lexington, KY 100-Day test score of 103.45.  Prior to his ATA approval he enjoyed popularity as an Oldenburg sire while standing at his breeder's Yancey Farms in Texas.  Some time in 1998 he was sold to Fred Turner for an impressive sum.  Shortly thereafter the Turner's young daughter Kayla was forced to retire her show horse due to injury, but it became obvious that Kayla should show Harper because of the very special bond that had formed between them.  Because AHSA rules restrict juniors from showing stallions in the hunter ring, after much consideration, the decision was made to geld Harper.  Kayla's trainer has remarked that "Harper will do anything for Kayla" and everybody anticipates much success for the pair in Children's Hunters and Medals classes.
