[Full list of achievements]
In 1996, Sweetie was sold to a youth, and Becky acquired a gelding with Alamitos Bars breeding, named Continental Zip Code. After a ROM and a couple of reserve all arounds, Becky sold him to a youth, in 1998, and bought a 2 yr old buckskin filly from Charlie Hutton of Hilldale Farm in Princeton, KY. This filly was by Shining Spark and out of the AQHA High Point Reining mare of 1993, SF Kings Firstlady. Her name: Shiners Firstlady. Becky had decided to really challenge herself, and change venues from All Around to Reining. Not easy to do when you are in your mid 40's! With lessons from Charlie and Debra Jones Wright, Becky and Lady headed out to AQHA shows. By the end of Lady's 3 yr old year, she already had her Amateur Register Of Merit. By the next year, Lady had her Open ROM and points in 6 events including working cowhorse, along with 2 amateur all arounds.
Lady was always a focal point at shows. Her striking buckskin color and big brown eyes drew crowds to her. She was always the spectator's favorite. She was ever so willing and able, to stand for a family photo, when people would drop by her stall, at the Georgia National State Fair.
Lady is still with Becky and has been retired to broodmare status.

2003 foal, Shiners Whiz Kid, who is a Palomino World Champion.
He is sired by NRHA reserve Derby Champion West Coast Whiz
We have a 2007 full sister to Shiners
Whiz Kid, now undersaddle,
and another full sister that arrived in Jan 2009.
In 2001, Becky went back to Hilldale farms, and bought a 2 yr old daughter of Nu Chex to Cash, their "up and coming" senior stallion. Nu Centerfold Girl (aka Miss June) proved her pedigree and carried Becky to multiple AQHA and NRHA wins in both Amateur and Rookie classes. With very limited showing in AQHA classes, Miss June finished her superior in reining, qualified 4 out of 5 years for the AQHA World show, and is now a sucessful youth horse in Texas.

NRHA Rookie wins
In 2004, Becky headed down to Dorminy Plantation, in Fitzgerald, Georgia, to look at some weanling prospects. She came home with Nic It By An Arrow. A 2004 sorrel filly by NRHA Futurity finalist, Nic It In The Bud, and out of a good reining Doc Tari mare, Arrow T Tari. "Nickie" was shown at three circuits in 2007 and, in September, walked away with an AQHA Circuit Championship in Open Reining. In 2008, she became a NRHA money earner, first time shown, qualified for the '08 Amateur and '09 Select Amateur World Shows, and won the South Carolina High Point All age and AmateurReining Award.
To date, Becky at Sunny Brook Farm, has had several fine quality horses from the bloodlines of Cee Bars, Leo, Sonny Dee Bar, Impressive, Alamitos Bars, Three Bars, Continental King, Shining Spark, Nu Cash, Topsail Whiz and Reminic. All of these horses, which were trained and shown by Becky, went on to become good youth horses for other families, and had permanent homes as pets, after their show careers. It's been a privilege to train and show these nice horses, over the last 40 years, and meet all the wonderful people associated with them.
