June 2013 American Quarter Horse Journal cover

Be sure to read the June Journal's cover story. It's the tale of how Diane Heath’s life has changed thanks to her bay gelding, All About Larry, who traded trail riding and working cattle for distance racing.

Ten consecutive years of breeding horses takes some fortitude. But imagine 60 consecutive years of breeding and registering American Quarter Horses – that takes a whole lot of good horse sense and grit.

The June American Quarter Horse Journal takes a look at AQHA 60-year breeder Roy Fisher Jr.’s longevity in the horse business, plus how line-breeding has played a role in that success.

Take a trip to Roy’s small eastern Oklahoma ranch on Page 84, then turn back to our cover story on Page 40 – the tale of how Diane Heath’s life has changed thanks to her bay gelding, All About Larry, who traded trail riding and working cattle for distance racing.

Owner and breeder Leslie Wallace, who hails from Langley, British Columbia, and youth rider Ariel Piper of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, are also profiled in the pages of the June Journal. These horsemen and -women are an inspiring bunch. We hope theirs are stories you will greatly enjoy.

Journal subscribers have free access to the digital edition of the magazine, which you can access from your computer or tablet device, such as an iPad or Kindle Fire.
