World show qualifier Judges Chambers (Spider) is an outstanding 2014 AQHA dark gray gelding – one of those horses that everyone pays attention to the minute they see him. He moves with confidence, strength, grace, agility and understated power. Spider has a kind, gentle, pleasing and easy-going nature that makes him a quick learner that gives his all no matter the task. The combination of speed and cow in his pedigree is about perfect as you can get.
After a few months of reined cow horse training, Spider qualified for the AQHA Ranching Heritage World Championships. We also entered him at one show in the team roping (he’d never been out of the box before), which he won. With very limited showing, he also qualified for the National Ranch and Stock Horse Alliance National Championship.
Like all Long Pines horses, he’s earned his way as a ranch horse, too, having spent long days working cattle, dragging calves at brandings, and pasture roping. Spider is sired by Long Pines’ Judgemental, a son of the late Judge Cash (SI 110; offspring earnings $2.3+ million). Spider’s dam is the matriarch at Long Pines, Spark Plug Cat, sired by the legendary Shining Spark (offspring earnings of $10+ million and 44 world champions; all-time leading NRCHA sire). Spider has many qualities of his dam and her sire, making him an all-around horse and everyone’s favorite.
