Pride was raised by Phil and Nancy Steinmetz
of Gainesville, TX. His dam is a pretty bay
mare by "Hotroddin Zippo" out of a "Zips
Chocolate Chip" mare. During January of
2004, Kaylee Suitor purchased "Prinzziples
Pride" while working for Bill and Tina Kaven.
They began to ride this 2-year-old bay
gelding and found him to be easy going and
good legged. They rode and trained but then
laid off for a few months. As they picked
back up training, Peanut matured very
rapidly developing more strength to his
cadence and lope. At the last minute, Tina
Kaven decided to take "Prinzziples Pride" to
Waco, TX for a futurity and WON! The next
weekend a Texas Paint Horse Show has an NSBA
class, and they win again! Two weeks later
and still not quite ready, "Prinzziples
Pride" and Tina Kaven head to the Lone Star
showed Peanut in the 2 Year Old Ltd Open
Futurity and WINS! Prinzziples
Pride and Tina Kaven win the Lone Star Open
Futurity and snag third in the NSBA Open Two
Year Old Class.
WOW, what a great
beginning for this classy two year old "Prinzziples
Pride". During the 2004 AQHA Congress Tate
Oakley purchases "Prinzziples Pride" and
earns Reserve Champion Two Tear Old Non Pro
Western Pleasure. Outstanding!
If that isn't enough,
Tina returns home to Texas with "Prinzziples
Pride" and prepares him for the World Show.
During the 2004 AQHA World Show "Prinzziples
Pride" and Tina Kaven take 3rd place in the
Two Year Old Western Pleasure.
Hats OFF to "Prinzziples Pride"
Tate Oakley and Tina Kaven for a phenomenal
2004 Congress Reserve Champion 2 yr.
Old Non Pro Western Pleasure
2004 AQHA World Show 2 yr. Old Western
Pleasure - 3rd
