After decades of evaluating the best horses in the industry at rodeo’s highest levels, 26-time World Champion Trevor Brazile and his partner Miles Baker honed in on Show Me The Buckles.

In November 2022, Reliance Ranches stepped in to purchase “Buckles” from the Relentless Remuda, allowing the stallion to stand to the public at one of the most visited facilities in the breeding industry. The Lazy E Ranch offers some of the best breeding technology in all of the equine industry to allow more mares than ever exposure to the sire.

Notably, he sired American Rope Horse Futurity Association (ARHFA) 4-year-old World Champion Tuckin Away Buckles, the No. 13 all-time leading team roping money earner according to QData, with decades left in the horse’s performance career. Buckles is also the sire of A Big Vintage Buckle, the 2022 ARHFA Intermediate World Champion heel horse.

“We’re still breeding our best mares to Buckles, and we’ll be riding his offspring for years to come,” Brazile said. “Moving to the Lazy E is the next step in his career as a sire.”

Buckles offspring are not only all exceptionally built and fancy—they’ve all had the most trainable, easy minds in the business, Brazile added.
