By legendary sire Topsail Cody and out of Jameen Gay by Toby Gay Bar, Topsails Rien Maker has long been one to watch in the reined cow horse arena. Bred by Stellato Revocable Trust of Redding, California, Topsails Rien Maker is now owned by Russell Dilday and Kevin Cantrelle. “Slider,” as the stallion is known around the barn, boasts winnings of more than $340,000, making him the all-time leading money earner in the sport
of reined cow horse. He exemplifies the traits needed in a top-level cow horse: cow sense, athleticism, versatility and heart.
Slider’s top feat came with owner-trainer Russell Dilday of Porterville, California, when the duo won the World’s Greatest Horseman competition not once, but three times. Slider is the event’s only three-time winner, and Russell is the only rider to have won three times, as well. The World’s Greatest Horseman, governed by the National Reined Cow Horse Association, comprises four events: herd work, rein work, steer stopping and cow work. Teams are judged on their ability to separate and cut a cow, perform a reining pattern, stop a steer by roping its horns
and work a single cow in the arena. All four events hail from the skills necessary to perform real ranch work.
