The organization Reins for Life received the 2013 Remuda of the Year award from the American Quarter Horse Association in Amarillo. AQHA is the world’s largest equine breed registry and membership organization.
The Remuda (Spanish for “herd”) of the Year award is considered their most prestigious award. The award began in 1992, when the American Quarter Horse Association chose one ranch a year that demonstrates quality quarter horses. The Bogle Ranch located in Dexter and Artesia was the 1999 recipient.
Terry Bogle founded the Reins for Life, a therapeutic riding program using one horse from the Bogle remuda string in 1995. “Our program has grown from one horse and five children to six horses and 50-plus adult and children clients per week,” said Bogle.
