Reining Clinic with Casey Deary, Jason Vanlandingham & Tim McQuay

Reiners Giving Back to Benefit Rein in Cancer and Reining Horse Foundation

It was announced in mid-July that Reiners Giving Back, a north-Texas group, had cooperated to create the First Annual Reiners Giving Back event, featuring Casey Deary, Jason Vanlandingham, and Tim McQuay! It will be a day filled with education and fellowship, all while supporting Rein In Cancer and the Reining Horse Foundation! All profits from the first annual Reiners Giving Back event will go directly to these important non-profit groups.

Set for Thursday, October 20 the day-long event will provide an educational venue in the form of three clinic sessions. Reiners have always been known for their friendly attitudes and generous spirits, but most of all, they are famous for "craving" the sport of reining, always wanting to learn more and strive for that perfect run. What better mentors could be found than three of the top riders in the world - Casey Deary, Jason Vanlandingham, and Tim McQuay?

Organizer Mandy McCutcheon said, “That Thursday is the beginning of such a great weekend in our area – with the Legacy Sale going on and the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity getting started. Both events draw a lot of people so it seemed to be a good time to create something to give back to the Reining Horse Foundation and to Rein in Cancer.”

For McCutcheon, both causes are important. “I serve on the board of the Reining Horse Foundation and want to help our industry through contributing to it. Of course, after losing my grandmother to cancer I always support Rein In Cancer and the amazing job Cheryl Cody and Shorty Koger do with that organization.”

Cheryl Magoteaux Cody, President of Rein in Cancer, was quick to express her appreciation of the event. “The reining industry has long been a supporter of Rein in Cancer and we appreciate this new commitment and this innovative event. Continuing to raise money is so important so we can continue to help cancer patients whose funds have been depleted by long-term care and missing work time. For those in the horse industry horses still need hay and bills keep coming in. Often a payment can make all the difference!”

She added, “The Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity has been another big supporter of Rein in Cancer so it’s great that people can come for the clinic, then stay and compete in the Futurity!”

 All three clinicians are donating their time for the causes. NRHA Professional Casey Deary of Weatherford, Texas, has earned over a Million Dollars in National Reining Horse Association competition. Known as a devoted family man, he has his own cheerleaders in his wife Nicole and their children; Wyatt, Joy, Owen, and Olivia.  They have had plenty to cheer about in recent years as Casey is a two-time NRHA Futurity Champion, NRHA Derby Champion and AQHA Reining World Champion as well as garnering top finishes at every major event.   For information on Casey visithttp://www.dearyperformance.com/.

Jason Vanlandingham has been on an incredible winning streak in recent years. The NRHA Million Dollar Rider  and his wife, Adrienne, own and operate Vanlandingham Reining Horses located in Whitesboro, Texas.

Jason began training professionally in the summer of 1998 and built his current facility in the fall of 2005.   To date Jason has accumulated many Futurity and Derby Championships, including the coveted NRHA Open Futurity and NRHA Open Derby titles, as well as the NRBC Championship, and Top 5 finishes at every major NRHA event. For information visit www.vanlandinghamreining.com.

Tim McQuay has long been an icon in the reining world, winning every major NRHA event, and garnering Team Gold at the World Equestrian Games. He is an NRHA Hall of Fame inductee, with over $3 Million in lifetime earnings. In addition, Tim has long been an innovator in the industry along with his wife, Colleen, maintaining one of the most prolific breeding operations in history, McQuay Stables, located in Tioga, Texas.

Rein In Cancer Continues Direct Aid to Horse Industry Cancer Patients

In January of 2012, Rein In Cancer, the Oklahoma-based 501-C3 Corporation, began providing direct financial assistance to cancer patients who are part of the performance horse community. It was a new direction for the organization, which had previously raised the funding to create the Shirley Bowman Nutrition Center at the Charles and Peggy Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City through the efforts of co-founders, Shorty Koger, Tracie Anderson and Cheryl (Magoteaux) Cody.

Although the organization continues to provide operating support for the Nutrition Center, its new focus became direct payment to patients being treated for cancer. The response has been overwhelming. In a year, Rein In Cancer has funded 80 patients in 32 states and Canada. All recipients have been members of the American Quarter Horse Association, the National Reining Horse Association, the National Reined Cow Horse Association or the National Cutting Horse Association.

Funds have been raised 100% through activities supported or hosted by equine industry events. Included in the long list of horse-related activities where Rein In Cancer funds have been raised are Remington Park Betting on a Cure, the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, the National Reining Horse Association Futurity, the All American Quarter Horse Congress, the National Reining Breeders Classic, the March to the Arch, the Arizona Sun Circuit and the American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show.

Added to that list are countless cuttings, ropings, barrel races, and other horse shows from a variety of disciplines. Tracie Anderson noted, “In 2013, Rein In Cancer will continue to raise funds for this patient assistance. The need is real – especially for people going through treatment who still have to buy horse feed!”

Cheryl (Magoteaux) Cody added, “When a family goes from two incomes to one or when one income is reduced and the expenses of treatment are so high, a little boost can sometimes make all the difference. It is because we hear from recipients who tell us how much the payments help, that we are so appreciative of the people in the horse industry who have contributed.”

To date, Rein In Cancer has raised over a million dollars. The organization has no employees – only volunteers - and over 97% of that total has gone directly to the advertised causes.

As always, we're planning more special activities! We need your donations so please email info@reinincancer.com  or call 580-759-2572. Remember we're 501C3 so your donations are tax deductible.
