Not only is "Little Red" a versatile and champion performer, he also has a wonderful, engaging personality.
Owner, Erin Knox of Flying K Ranch in Pilot Point, TX, bought Fly The Red Eye as a yearling - and it was love at first sight.
After winning his AAA ROM on the flat track, "Little Red" was introduced to renowned halter trainer and judge, Kathy Smallwood. Kathy notes, "He's exactly the confirmation and build we want in a performance halter horse."
After earning reining points, he was matched with trainer Clay Logan and the former racehorse who was trained to run out of a starting gate learned to sit nice in the roping box. Clay says, "it wasn't hard to earn the (roping) points he needed."
Little Red's next partner was Richard Pokluda who schooled him in reining. Little Red exceeded expectations in that arena as well, and went on to earn AQHA Open Supreme Champion honors in 2013.
Fly The Red Eye has settled into the life of a loved stallion and sire at the Flying K Ranch. His first foal crop was born in 2015 and they are already proving to have the talent, conformation and brains of their sire.
