Stan, Trenton Patton ride into success in Tulsa

Not many individuals can lay claim to the title of World Champion, but not many people have the dedication and love of horses as Stan Patton.

Patton, who owns a farm just north of Purdy, partnered with Jane Rogers, of Monett, on three Buckskin horses.

The partnership paid off in spades, as the trio of equines brought home hardware from the American Buckskin Registry Association (ABRA) World Championship Show.

The event took place at the Tulsa Expo Center on July 24-28.

Patton entered Bob, a 2-year-old gelding, whose registered name is Foolin’ You Is Easy.

Bob won first nationally in the 2-year-old Western Pleasure Snaffle Futurity (NSBA) National Snaffle Bit Association. All five judges placed the horse first. He also claimed a trophy, buckle, ribbon and prize money for the top World Champion finish.

Bob was also entered in the Green Western Pleasure class and earned a top five place ribbon.

Another 2-year old gelding called Good Time for Scotch, also known as Gibbs, took first in the 2-year-old Longe Line NSBA Class and also claimed a top five placing in the ABRA division.

Trenton Patton, Stanley Patton’s son, showed a yearling filly named Ivonna Buck Da Rules, but known as Penny, in the Amateur Yearling Longe Line.

Penny dazzled the judges and brought home the ABRA Reserve World Champion title, earning a ribbon and buckle.

Stan Patton also won a silver headstall, a recognition as one of the top trainers in the nation.
