from an article in "The Way To Go Magazine" called "2014 Open Rider List Ads New Faces" 


Sophistication Only is a 2003 Chestnut stallion by leading AQHA Stallion Invitation Only and is out of Sophistichip. His dam is by AQHA's all time leading sire Zips Chocolate Chip. IN THE FIRST THREE GENERATIONS OF HIS  PEDIGREE HE HAS FOUR NSBA HALL OF FAME STALLIONS  (Invitation Only, Zips Chocolate Chip, Zippo Pine Bar, and Hotrodders Jet Set)!  Sophistication Only is negative on the AQHA 5 panel test for all the genetic diseases.

Sophistication Only, affectionately known as "Sie", stands a little over 15.3 hands. His gorgeous looks and conformation awarded him a Reserve Congress Champion in the Lim. Amateur Performance Stallions (he was the highest placing stallion on all four cards with a first on two cards). The same year at the Congress he took his owner Laura Bracken, who was five months pregnant with their daughter Kenzie, to the finals in the Amateur Western pleasure with over 100 entries.

Sie has a super laid back disposition and personality that has led both his non pro owners to several wins in the show arena in Western Pleasure, Halter, Showmanship, Horsemanship, and Equitation.

His first foal crop was in 2008! This crop of 2 year olds had a successful show year! What we are most excited about all of these 2 year olds is their MINDS! Sie is consistently putting his quiet disposition into his babies.

One mare owner sent me a letter about her 2 year old filly, "...Aside from being really talented and having fantastic movement, her mind is phenomenal- she's one of my most solid trail horses, and I've put total rank beginners on her for trail rides, because she's just that reliably quiet. At the shows, she steps off the trailer poised, calm and ready to work. I couldn't be happier with her. I have a 3 year old out of the same mare by a different stud, and the difference in the mind is incredibly striking...if Sie puts this mind on all his babies, that's quite an accomplishment..."

Another mare owner sent me a letter about her 2 year old gelding, "...Teddy was great of course at the show. Absolutely a great minded young horse. Nothing phases him. My daughter had her two year old son run out in front of him while she was lunging at the show and Teddy stopped for him. How can I sell? I have decided she gets to keep him...."

We are excited for the 2014 breeding and show season! Thank you for visiting our web site. We will see you on the rail!

Good Luck,
Jerry, Laura, Kenzie, and Sie
