A son of Confederate Leader out of a ProRodeo money-earning mare, BR Golden Leader is a 2013 gray stallion that has been successful in the barrel racing pen with top trainers Kassie Mowry, Angie Meadors and Dustin Angelle, amassing more than $58,000 in earnings. Still running barrels with owner and breeder Whitney Davison, BR Golden Leader is also used in the roping arena by Whitney’s husband, Cole Davison, as well as two-time 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.”

Fast and elevated, BR Golden Leader is an excellent cross on mares in the roping arena that aren’t as quick. Being an outcross in barrel racing, BR Golden Leader is a suitable match for Dash Ta Fame or Frenchmans Guy bloodlines. With his oldest foal crop coming 5, he’s had four earners gather up over $21,000 in extremely limited hauling in 2023. His offspring are placed with standout trainers for both barrel racing and roping, maximizing the promotion of your investment in BR Golden Leader.
