Appaloosas are noted for their unique spotted coats and Lil’ Ricky Rocker doesn’t disappoint! The flashy 1992 leopard Appaloosa gelding made his show debut at age 3, but then colicked and was given little chance of survival. Not only did Ricky pull through, he came back the next year to become the Reserve World Champion in Junior Reining! Ricky has had success is many different classes, including earning several National and World Championships in Appaloosa Heritage. In this exciting class, stages of the breed’s rich history are portrayed with the horse and rider costumed to represent anything from Native Americans to Spanish conquistadors! Model measures 12.75″L x 6.5″H.
