My name is Ronald Bower or as most know me 998. I live in Summersville Missouri on the
outskirts of town where my wife and I raise horses. We have a outdoor arena that I ride in
almost all year round.
The good Lord has blessed us this year with a horse I bought when she was three months
old but we left her with her mother until she was six months old. When we brought her home
I played and worked with her about two months and then turned her out with the other
After the celebration in 1996, I then started working with her until she was green
broke, before taking her to Geno Middleton to look at in late October and left her with
him when he decided he would like to ride her for a month or two, so we left her there for
two months and brought her home to turn out, but I liked what I saw and said you know I
have got to ride her. I started riding her in a friends barn and rode her about two
months, turned her 6 for a little while, then took her back to Geno Middleton to start
ridding again, to get her ready for the two year old futurity for me or someone to show.
Geno decided he would like to ride her so we let him show her in the two year old futurity
where he won the two year old mare class and won reserve in the stake class, which we were
very pleased with. I then brought her home after the show that night. She was not shown
again until this year, where we have had a wonderful year. Sensation's Missouri
Girl has won first place at AVA three year old futurity in amateur three year old class
and first place in amateur three years and older owned and trained no professional
training 60 days prior. At the Mid America Fall Show she won first place in the three year
old stake class. Now Sensation's Missouri Girl has won first place in the three year old
amateur Breeders Cup, and many other BLUES. We sure appreciate the crowds support for us
and all the people who have supported us all year long and those who have just joined us.
THANK YOU ALL FOR EVERYTHING. Ronald and Marsha Bower and Sensation's Missouri Girl.
