Kaleb Driggers is professional team roping’s preeminent horseman, having owned more elite-level performers than any header ever.

So, it goes to reason, that if he decides to stand a stallion, that stallion aligns with his exceptionally high standards for a great horse. And that stallion—Metallic Payday—came from fellow World Champion and ARHFA Reserve World Champ Colby Lovell’s program. Lovell, with his background in cutting, ranching and cow horse, put a foundation on Metallic Payday that’s hard to beat—one that’s already earned him more than $40,000 in competition.

“Everyone that sees Payday talks about his kind demeanor and his exceptional build,” Driggers said. “But the one thing that I wish everyone could feel is the size of his heart. With his first foal crop just turning 2, we are seeing his big bone structure and his heavy muscle mass on these colts. I am excited to see what the future holds for him as a producer.”

The 2018 Riata Buckle and Royal Crown stallion has placed in the average and go-rounds on both ends everywhere from the Riata Buckle, Royal Crown and ARHFA events under everyone from Lovell to Driggers to Andy Holcomb and Junior Nogueira. And he’s far from done.
