Lica Pinkston is no stranger to the hard work it requires to run a successful cattle ranch.

That same work ethic has brought Pinkston great success in the cutting arena.

Pinkston, born and raised in Texas, has been around cattle and horses her whole life. Her cattle ranch lies just north of the border in Alice, Texas. Although cutting horses has been a part of her family’s history, Pinkston credits her son, 15 years ago, for bringing her into the sport.

“My son was riding bulls in high school rodeo at the time and wanted another event. So we bought a cutting horse,” she said.

Shortly after, her son decided to move on to different things.

However, Pinkston still had a horse. In response, she started taking lessons and went on to compete herself. Her accomplishments quickly followed. In just 2 short years, she purchased
another horse and hauled in the 50K amateur and won Rookie of the Year and Reserve Champion. In 2017, she purchased a very special horse, Stylish Top Brow, better known
as “Peanut”. Peanut and Pinkston have gone on to win 4 Championships and a Reserve Champion.

Pinkston has grown to be a true competitor in the sport, and has
big plans and goals for 2019.

“My first main goal is to get to the finals in Fort Worth,” Pinkston said. She will show Peanut and two 4 year olds at the Super-Stakes in the unlimited amateur as well as the limited non-pro. Pinkston will also compete at the Summer Spectacular and the Breeder’s Invitational.

Why Lica Uses CHTO: “I love the DVD’s with the different trainers, and learning all [of] their different training methods is a useful tool.”

Best of Luck down the road Lica Pinkston!
