Leading Offspring 2018 Award Winner

The Barrel Racing industry was witness to a whole new wave in 2018! Yep… it was the 5-year old mare, WAVEONTHEWAYBY who made her presence felt, winning everywhere she went & pocketing $24,723.42 in earnings!


Shawn & April Williamson purchased “Waves” as a weanling at the Cypress Hills Registered Horse Breeders Sale. She was started as a 3-year old & spent a 1 ½ years doing ranch work. From the start “Waves” had a great work ethic & a huge heart. It was nothing for her to be tied off to a 2000 lb bull or drag 100’s of calves during branding season. In September of 2017 “Waves” was started on the pattern & April quickly fell in love as she was natural at everything, her feet were fast & she was loping the barrels perfectly in 4 days! The talented Buffy Romeo would meet “Waves” in November 2017 and the rest would be history!
