Klamath Falls and Terrebonne, Oregon

Ride The Rim Performance Horses’ lineup of top stallions features some of the industry’s best bloodlines, all managed by equine reproduction veterinarian Meredith Pierce, DVM, and Lori Lester.

“This started as my side passion, with one stallion—One Nation—and then Lori was like, ‘I want a stallion!’” Pierce explained. “So we bred a mare and had Lesters Live Wire. And we went from there. This started out as kind of fun, and now it’s an obsession.”

Best Advice ($750, ICSI only)

Standing as ICSI only, Best Advice is by Corona Cartel out of Sweet Advice by Bully Bullion.

“He’s had fantastic horses on the track and in the barrel pen,” Pierce said. “He crosses well on the Dash Ta Fames, the Judge Cashes and even Thoroughbred mares.”

INCENTIVES: Ruby Buckle, VGBRA Reference Sire

Lesters Live Wire ($1,000)

By First Down Dash son Rare News out of Thoroughbred mare Ochoco Kitten, Lesters Live Wire, at 17 hands, adds size and speed to any mare. Lesters Live Wire has produced exceptional colts with a kind disposition, good mind and athleticism to spare.

INCENTIVES: Top Shelf, Select Stallion Stakes, VGBRA, Southwest Desert Classic

Bench Warrant ($1,250)

By Judge Cash out of Frenchmans Guy daughter RR Frenchmans Smoke, Bench Warrant is a go-to barrel horse for Lester, who’s earned arena records and spots in the American Semis.

INCENTIVES: Royal Crown Roping and Barrels, VGBRA, Top Shelf Breeders, Cowboy State Stallion Incentive

Something Epic ($2,000, frozen only)

Only 4 years old in 2024, Something Epic, by Epic Leader, is a full sibling to NFR qualifier Kassie Mowry’s massive superstar Epic Guy, both out of Frenchilicious by Frenchmans Guy. He’s in training with João Leão, and will be campaigned throughout his futurity career and beyond.

One Nation (Private treaty)

One Nation was Ride The Rim’s first sire, but has since passed away. His frozen semen is still available.
