A son of Confederate Leader out of a ProRodeo money-earning mare, BR Golden Leader is a 2013 grey stallion that has been successful in the barrel racing pen with top trainers Kassie Mowry, Angie Meadors and Dustin Angelle. Still running barrels with owner and breeder Whitney Davison, he is also used in the roping arena by Whitney’s husband, Cole Davison, and by ARHFA World Champion Tate Kirchenschlager. A true all-around stallion, BR Golden Leader passes his versatility and easy-going attitude to his offspring.

“If BR Golden Leader wasn’t so easy and great to be around, I probably wouldn’t want to do the breeding stuff—it’s just so hard,” Whitney laughed. “But he makes doing it easy and the babies he produces make it worthwhile.”

A fast and elevated stallion, BR Golden Leader is an excellent cross on mares in the roping arena that aren’t as quick. Being an outcross in barrel racing, he is a suitable match for Dash Ta Fame or Frenchmans Guy bloodlines. With his oldest crop coming 4, his offspring are placed with trainers for both barrel racing and roping. Foals are eligible for the Ruby Buckle, Breeder’s Challenge, Royal Crown Roping and more.
