INCENTIVES: Royal Crown, Riata Buckle

Hillbilly Hallows may well be a passion project for founder Robin Walker, but it was born from the straight-up necessity for a rodeoing mom to have versatile horses capable of competing successfully in multiple events.

Today, in her pursuit of breeding the ultimate crossover horse, Walker blends her proven band of broodmares, such as Fols Dream Of Cash, who’s produced Canadian Finals Rodeo barrel horses and an AQHA world champion, with the outstanding performance and genetics of sire Big Shine In Cowtown, aka “Champ.”

Champ is a futurity and ProRodeo winner who competed at the Canadian Finals Rodeo as a 5-year-old and has continued his successful show career with Jeremy Buhler.

“I added Trey Gallais, multiple CFR competitor, for full-time training and getting our colts the best start we can,” Walker added of the new addition to her budding program. With 20 new foals hitting the ground each year, Walker has progeny by Champ, as well as other outstanding stallions from hand-selected, proven mares.

Champ balances breeding and showing and, new for 2024, is now a Royal Crown stallion for both of Walker’s favorite disciplines: team roping and barrel racing.

“That’s exciting, especially with my mares,” Walker said. “I’m sitting here giggling.”
