This classy, athletic gelding is by Long Pines' NRCHA champion, Bettin Yer Smart, out of Sterling’s high school cutting mare Smokin Hickory Girl. Out of our first Bettin Yer Smart foal crop, he quickly showed us the value of this line. Smokin The Jay's pedigree is literally the “Who’s Who” of cow horses: Smart Little Lena, Peptoboonsmal, Bet Yer Blue Boons, Freckles Playboy, Peppy San Badger, Docs Hickory and Doc O’Lena.
His near-perfect conformation is just the beginning. Amos has always been a very willing learner with tons of try. He began cow horse training with Justin Lawrence in the fall of 2018. When Long Pines was asked for a reined cow horse demonstration at the North Dakota High School Rodeo Finals in the summer of 2019, Amos stepped in when another horse wasn’t available – his first trip to town and he was a superstar. In August 2019 he made his first competitive runs and handled it well. Just three weeks later, he became an NRCHA open-level money earner. Be sure to check out his winning highlights below.
