of you know Roxy Kinnaman, a competitor and owner of fine
cutting horses. Some of you may know Roxy and her husband,
Craig, own and operate Kiperts Feed and Trailer Sales. They
have a daughter, Lynzie, who is a freshman at Central
Washington University. Roxy is also a cutting horse
photographer and has an embroidery business. Most of the
WCHA embroidered awards were stitched by Roxy.
I doubt if any of you know that Roxy had a job adjusting
jail time for felons or that she traveled the United States
recruiting transportation engineers. But perhaps it was
working Sundays at Dels Farm Supply while going to school at
St. Martins College that influenced her to write a business
plan for an assignment in one of her classes. It was this
plan that Roxy and Craig submitted to the county for
approval for their store. That was about twenty years ago.
Roxy didn’t get involved with cutting until 1993 when she
had the opportunity to ride a cutter. She said it was that
experience that got her started into cutting. But I think
her draw to cutting goes back many years before that. Did I
mention that Roxy was born in Dallas, Texas? Though she only
spent the first year of her life in Texas I am convinced
that this is where she got the cutting bug.
Roxy has owned some sons and daughters by many leading sires
such as High Brow Cat, Haidas Little Pep, Dual Pep, Highbrow
Hickory, Miss N Cash, Smart Little Lena, and Dual Rey. She
currently has a Dual Rey four year old mare in training with
Josh Sleeman. They plan to double up on her this year in
some Limited Age Events. When asked what was her most
memorable ride she said it would be when she rode Smart Cash
Cruiser at The Breeders Invitational. She enjoyed the big
time feeling of this event…the attention and focus of
studying the cattle with your trainer and having your team
helping you locate and cut specific cows. She said she
didn’t make the finals but will never forget the experience.
WCHA wants to thank Roxy Kinnaman for her long time support.
