  • Ponderosa Quarter Horses - Chilla - A Larrakin and a Legend
    influence on rodeo which they considered an Australian icon as well as Australian life generally Old grudges die hard in the bush In the sixties following experiments with several bronc riding saddles the ARRA allowed voluntary trials of the international saddle at its rodeos Fittingly it was Chilla who won the first Saddle Bronc ride on the new saddle in this country at the Gill Brothers rodeo at Benalla In 1965 New Zealand introduced the new contest saddle to their event and the row came to a head once again Eventually it was adopted by the ARRA as the international standard and Australians were competing in New Zealand America Canada and Brazil Heavily promoted by radio newspapers and Hoofs Horns magazine full time rodeo champions became household names The star roughriders were treated like celebrities signing autographs behind the chutes and receiving copious amounts of fan mail Their fans would travel the country to watch them ride In the early days of Australian rodeo the cowboys travelled by train their arrival often hailed by a fanfare at the station All the town s people knew we were coming on that train and we were bigger than the Beatles Chilla once told a journalist And just like the Beatles they were chased from town to town by adoring teenage girls Often at a rodeo dance the local girls would get a little flirtatious with the visiting cowboys and if you weren t careful you d find yourself with an invitation to step outside by some of the more feisty local lads Chilla s boxing skills had come in handy on more than one occasion It was one thing to face these blokes in the ring with a referee but quite a different thing to be out the back surrounded by a mob of their mates And a lot of them were pretty tough characters Those fights aren t on my record but I didn t lose any of them boasted Chilla These were ambitious athletic good looking young men and Chilla was no exception He became a very popular and well known personality on the circuit Country music artist Slim Dusty sang his praises in Rodeo Riders Following his trip to the States Chilla developed his individual persona straw hats and western boots lucky red shirts and blue denim jeans held at the waist with a shiny trophy belt buckle a roughrider s number one accessory Not a common sight back then the influence came from Casey Tibbs a world champion bronc rider from South Dakota and it was a trend that quickly caught on here After seventeen years of competition and a good number of these spent chasing the Australian Saddle Bronc title and coming so close on several occasions Chilla s persistence was finally rewarded with a Championship win in 1967 To maintain his lead against his strongest rival Jim McGuire he had to rodeo solidly throughout the season In a rodeo career that spanned twenty years Chilla also excelled in the events of calf roping and bulldogging also known as steer wrestling It was through Chilla and several other top ropers that roping was initially recognised and established as a major rodeo contest Partnering with the first love of his life and one of the best of the early timed event horses a pony mare named Baby Doll Chilla claimed the Calf Roping Titles of 1965 and 67 The pair achieved the Runner up position on three other occasions 62 63 and 66 Baby Doll standing at 14 2 hands was a highly intelligent little dynamo and knew how to rate cattle Her reputation was so great that she was constantly borrowed by other leading riders especially international competitors carrying several of them to victory Chilla once explained why she had the edge Baby Doll s secret weapon was her height or lack of it Being lower to the ground than bigger horses the flying dismount was easier and quicker and so was the remount When you re looking to save a tenth of a second that s important Having the use of top horses like Baby Doll could often mean the difference between eating or going hungry for a rodeo competitor Many agree that for the timed events there was no better trained dual purpose horse in her day Chilla and his little mare were also a popular choice to team up as bulldogging hazers with fellow competitors While in the States Chilla had picked up some tips for training trick horses from Glenn Randall who d trained the famous Trigger Back home Chilla applied them to Baby Doll and the pair were a constant source of amusement both in and out of the rodeo arena The crowd loved the way Baby Doll would always gallop back across the arena to Chilla once he d dropped his steer in the bulldogging and allow him to make a running remount Fans would gather around insisting that he ask the mare to perform her repertoire of tricks Stories abound about the tricks he taught her even down to selecting his partner for the evening s dance Trained to nod or shake her head on cue she had this uncanny knack of always selecting the prettiest girl from the line up At other times without any prompting she would jealously butt in on Chilla s conversations with friends and take up a guard position standing as close to him as possible Chilla would just shrug it off saying She s worse than any woman All he had to do was whistle and she would come threading her way through the crowd to him no matter where she was on the grounds When she wasn t required she would be waiting loyally at the gooseneck They had an amazing rapport Chilla s other rodeo companion was Chico a first cross QH stallion by Vaquero owned in partnership with Dally Holden Chilla hauled his horses from one end of Australia to the

    pioneer His fast horses needed to be useful in so many other ways that disposition and soundness were also always of the utmost importance This traditional combination of speed durability and co operative intelligence gave the Quarter Horse the inbuilt versatility that enabled him survive more than 300 tumultuous years without the assistance of a stud book The Quarter Horse industry has changed so much that speed is no longer a primary consideration for many owners Notion of speed in the Quarter Horse is even sometimes openly scorned Recognize that speed remains an essential component of the breed and is a must if the Quarter Horse is to continue as a truly versatile animal The great performance and show bloodlines of today with few exceptions have their foundations in proven speed Outcrosses of the future will be found among the ranks of the running horses Astute breeders with a true understanding of the source of the Quarter Horses uniqueness are already casting a watchful eye in this direction As the Quarter Horse breed approaches its fifth century breeders need to be mindful of his origins and ponder the forces that shaped him The necessity of maintaining the time honoured balance of speed durable conformation disposition and smarts in the breed cannot be overestimated A genetic pool broad and deep of fundamental qualities from which breeders can replenish those eroded by fashion or specialisation will ensure that the Quarter Horse forges into the future as powerfully as he emerged from the past Strive to keep the catfooted agility and sharp intelligence the steady disposition and easy way of going the power the style of this horse About Quarter Horses The Oldest American Breed The American Quarter Horse is reputed to be the oldest all American breed The origins of this breed

  • Ponderosa Quarter Horses - Quarter Horse History
    distances in the English tradition The importation of Fearnaught who contributed size and stamina to the American race horse started the trend toward distance racing and the decline of short racing on the eastern seaboard By the year 1800 the distance race was firmly established and the Quarter Horse began to move westward with the new frontier However the Thoroughbred made a notable contribution to the Quarter Horses of this period through the blood of Sir Archy the greatest race horse of his time Many of the outstanding Quarter Horse sires of the 19th century and a few of the 20th century are traced to him Often his bloodlines appear several times in the pedigree of both sire and dam The American Thoroughbred was not recognized as a breed until well into the 19th century three quarters of a century after the English Stud book was started Basis for the breed was of course the imported English horse but many horses were accepted into the early American Thoroughbred stud books through the mating of English Thoroughbreds to native American racemares or daughters of American race horses Obviously because of the type of racing that developed them many of these were Quarter Horses This was acknowledged in the first American Thoroughbred stud books by the use of the following abbreviations after their names C A Q R H Celebrated American Quarter Running Horse or F A Q R H Famous American Quarter Running Horse The first American thoroughbred studbook was published in 1896 During the 19th century the Quarter Horse followed the western migration his popularity kept alive by the fact that he was an all purpose horse who could earn his keep and at the same time provide sport in matched races where no facilities existed for the running of long races He moved into Tennessee Kentucky Ohio and Michigan and continued to improve in speed and quality as fanciers kept breeding speed to speed in an effort to outrun their neighbours When the pioneers moved still farther west they took their good Quarter Horses into Illinois Missouri and Arkansas then on to Kansas Oklahoma and Texas Here the short horse finally came into his own On the plains of the Great American Desert it was a simple matter to level a couple of parallel paths for the matching of speed and the racing blood proved to be just what was needed to produce top cow horses when crossed with the mustangs that had come up from the Spanish horses imported into Mexico At last the Quarter Horse found his permanent place in the sun as a peer of saddle breeds and one unequalled in the handling of the vast herds of cattle that constituted the principal industry of the west The fact that he could do his work without in any way detracting from his ability as a race horse endeared him to his owner and stimulated his continued improvement as a type if not as an actual breed
