This classy, athletic gelding is by Long Pines' NRCHA champion, Bettin Yer Smart, out of Sterling’s high school cutting mare Smokin Hickory Girl. Yer Brakes R Smokin'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.
"Ernie" is the younger full brother to our Smokin The Jay, who is already a reined cow horse standout in snaffle and hackamore. They share very similar conformations and both have gorgeous style, with their own individual flare.
Ernie was started by our longtime trainer, Justin Lawrence Cowhorses, as a 2 year old. He's making super progress, and we expect him to enter the showpen in 2020. We make sure our prospects get lots of miles on the range, and Ernie has seen his share.
