Vegas was the highlight of the year with Jennifer (the 'J' in JL Performance Horses) and Eddie (Gotta Be A Hotrod) winning blue ribbons from multiple judges in Masters Showmanship, Masters Horsemanship and Masters Trail. Congratulations on finishing in the TOP 5 in the Nation!
Bright lights and big moments helped make special memories for us. The APHA Western National Championship drew 1,040 entries (plus 400 NSBA entries) with 240 horses in 13 divisions. When the dust settled, talented competitors, like Jennifer Barbee (the 'J' in JL Performance Horses) rose to the top of the standings to claim a Top 5 win in Masters Trail, Top 10 in Masters Horsemanship and Top 5 in Masters Showmanship with her handsome geldings, 'Gotta Be A Hotrod' (aka Eddie).
