HP Dash Ta Fiesta is barrel racing royalty, by leading sire Dash Ta Fame out of Kelly Yates’ famous Firewater Fiesta. But Firewater Fiesta herself was a head horse first, and HP Dash Ta Fiesta could have easily gone to the roping pen with his picture-perfect, athletic build.

The horse is World’s Greatest Horseman Champ Ron Ralls’ favorite Highpoint stallion, and he’s the junior stallion that team ropers like World Champion Colby Lovell and NFR heeler Jonathan Torres are choosing to cross on their best mares.

“I love the way that horse is built,” Lovell said. “He caught my eye immediately. I wasn’t sold on the run-cow cross, honestly, for rope horses, but I believe that stallions like HP Dash Ta Fiesta are going to change my mind.”

Lovell crossed three of his own mares on stud, while Torres crossed one on him, too.

“I want horses eligible for the incentives and, if you look at HP Dash Ta Fiesta, he could just as easily have been a heel horse or a cow horse,” Torres said.
