After receiving this gift, she had him gelded and then sent him to Kelly Conrado to break and ride him for a couple months before going to Sue and Mead Miller for additional training. Kristie Peterson then put the final piece to him by getting him started on the barrels and then she turned the reins over to Schulze to complete the masterpiece…Graduated from Meeker (Colo.)
