In the performance horse world, athleticism and intelligence are critical to success, but a little bit of pretty doesn’t hurt either.

All those attributes are found in Hockenson Quarter Horses’ CT Show Me Your Guns, the 2021 AQHA World Champion Senior Heading Horse and AHQA Champion.

“Joe” was a standout in the show pen: a Super Horse contender for multiple years after qualifying for the AQHA World Show in tie-down roping, heading, heeling, ranch riding, barrels and performance halter.

With his oldest, limited first foal crop just being 5 years old, Joe quickly proved himself as a sire, turning out 2022 AQHA World Champion HQ Show Me The Gin in the L2 Junior Heading (one of two in his first crop), and 2023 Reserve World Champion in the L3 Junior Heading, HQ Top Gun.

Joe’s offspring have earned more than 244 AQHA points and $60,000 (and climbing). Joe is also the all-time high-money producing stallion in the IQHA Ranch Horse Futurity, just one of the many incentives for which his progeny are eligible.

In addition to his athleticism, the uniquely colored stallion carries the cream gene, gray gene and dun gene. His offspring are proving to have his dominance in the show pen and their beauty can’t be overlooked.
