Bill and Michelle Cowan are known for raising, training and showing great performance horses. The Cowan’s program includes the great and very versatile Catty Hawk by the all-time leading cutting horse sire, High Brow Cat x Scarlet Dance x Peppy San Badger.

Catty Hawk is a 2005 AQHA/APHA double-registered stallion with LTE of $240,297. Catty Hawk has been racking up champion titles and earnings since his 3-year-old year in 2008 and has been a finalist at almost every aged event he’s shown at. Highlights of his career include being the 2008 NCHA’s 3YO Non-Pro finalist and Limited Non-Pro Champion, the 2009 Abilene Spectacular 4YO Open Reserve Champion, 2010 Music City Futurity 5/6YR Non-Pro Finalist, 2011 NCHA Summer Spectacular 5/6YO Non-Pro finalist and 2019 AQHA World Show Cutting Amateur finalist. In 2014, Catty Hawk was awarded the Leading Freshman AQHA Sire of 2014.

Catty Hawk’s foal crops have each produced champions. His strong foundation results in exceptional performers and with progeny earnings over $3.3 million in cutting, reined cow horse, roping, ranch work and barrel racing.

“Catty Hawk is an impressive competitor in the show pen,” owner Michelle Cowan said. “We are seeing incredible pay-outs in team roping. Makenzie Cowan, our daughter, along with others, has had some great performances in the roping arena, so we felt the next logical step was to enroll him in the Riata Buckle and the Royal Crown, giving the owners of his offspring additional opportunities to do well!”
