ABOUT THE COMMITEE
Randy and Marty Barton
Marty and Randy have been involved with Paints since Gray Siteman imported the first Paint Stallion, Van Dee Bars. At that time the paints were registered under the Pinto Paint Horse Society started by Jan Curran..
Randy and Keith Harrison oversaw the split from the Pinto Paint Horse Society and helped form the Paint Horse Association of New Zealand. Lance Baker was the first president.
Marty and Randy were involved in the ‘Breed Up’ program to allow the use of quality coloured mares to register their progeny for a period of two years. After the two years all paints had to have Paint, QH of TB breeding on both sides to be registerable.
Since then, Randy and Marty had endeavoured to breed quality, coloured paints and presently own 12 registered Paints.
Today Randy is wanting to get the colour back into Paints. He would like to see all the coloured Paints sitting around the countryside on our registry and their owners members of PHANZ.
Any ideas on how this can happen? Feel free to contact him.
At the start of his Presidency, Randy has requested that the ban be lifted on anyone who has previously been denied the opportunity to register their horses or join PHANZ.
When people join a club or organisation they want to have fun and enjoy it.. He recognises that owners give so much time and effort and money to their Paints that it makes sense that they enjoy the experience. He will endeavour to help the committee do this. Hope we see you at the next National Show.
I have had horses for as long as I can remember, but it was about twelve years ago that I was introduced to Paints and western horses.
I imported the beautiful Paint Mare “RJ’s Amazing Grace” in 2007 and she has since had 4 lovely foals, including Champion Paint Stallion of New Zealand with “RJ’s Just Enough”, and earlier this year, Champion Paint Mare of New Zealand with “EXP Revel in Amazement”, I hope to Show her latest foal at the next Nationals.
I am looking forward to working with a very passionate group of people on committee this year, to promote our fantastic Paint horses and hopefully get more of our members out and about having fun with their horses.
I have been associated with horses since I was 6 so a little over 20 years.
I have had a passion and owned and shown Quarter Horses since purchasing my first Quarter Horse in 1978. Since then I have been introduced to the lovely Paint Horse. Introduced by my partner Donna, it was actually Hard Twisting Classic brought us together. So now my love and passion is equally split between the Paint and the Quarter Horse and in saying equally it’s exactly 50/50 with owning 3 imported Paint Stallions and 3 imported quarter Horse Stallions. We stand our stallions on our new property in the Manawatu. So with the 6 Stud Colts we don’t get much time to be involved with much outside the horses.
Donna and I started the Ranch Horse Association of NZ 10 years ago and it great to see the Paint Horse numbers rising in our Association and Ranch Horse is a great place to see the Paints out there being versatile.
As I said at the start of this blurb I started riding at 6 with the Island Bay riding school in Wellington. Since then I have shown in most equine disciplines from dressage to Cow Horse and have been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to ride some truly great horses and enjoyed every minute of it. Starting and schooling the babies is a great way of enjoying life. Those young ones treated right give back to you forever.
Real pleased to be on the Paint committee so that I can assist on keeping things on track for the breed but more than that, to promote our breed.
Horses have always been in my life, from the day I was born till now, they are my happy place! I have been a member of PHANZ since 1999 when I purchased my first registered paint horse, she was just about 2 then and I still have her to this day when she’s now 18! I enjoy all aspects of riding but one of my favourite would be a long trail ride, in the middle of nowhere in big open country! I worked in the States for a while riding horses and some of the country and scenery there was completely mind blowing and every year I want to go back! I’m also very keen on getting into Western Dressage.
Currently I have a lifestyle block in the Waikato, with 5 paint horses (2 due to foal) and a purebred QH, I work as a sales rep for a incredibly busy visual imaging company that is based in the Waikato but does nationwide work (think Hobbit aeroplanes, vehicle fleets, product labels, buildings etc). I became a member of the committee as I’m passionate about growing/expanding/promoting the paint horse in NZ. There are some amazing horses out there and also great opportunities to bring new blood into NZ so I really want to see PHANZ grow and everyone to enjoy doing it! I look forward to seeing you out and about, and also getting my 2 youngsters out there this year.
I have been involved with PHANZ since 2001 both showing and breeding, producing national supreme champions
Sizzle n hot hustler, Red Ferrari, Poetry in motion, Picasso and Revelation. I have had a career in the horse industry for 32 years, including five time winner of the best presented horse at the Australasian standardbred yearling sales, stakes winning thoroughbred trainer, and international sales in Singapore and Hong Kong. I am looking forward to working with the current committee for the future of the paint horse and our members, along with my daughter Jessica competing this season with our horse Revelation.
I have had a horse from the age 5, going to pony club and later Eventing. When I was 8 it was time to get a new pony, a pony called Painted Lady came into my life a bay and white Toby mare and that is when my love for coloured horses started. It wasn’t till 2004 that I bought my 1st Paint Mare, then a I bought a colt, TNT Drum Roll they started it all, he had the most amazing nature for a colt, and my breeding program began. I currently own a yearling paint filly and 2 Paint mares Miss Chrissy Lee and Secretly Delilah, they have produced some amazing foals EXP Naturalee, EXP Obviouslee Nature, Secretly Shameless and EXP Secretly Revealed to name a few.I have a love for Paints and want to see the breed grow even more and get new people to join us to love the breed and show them off. I feel this association has always been wroth while that is why i am prepared to give my time again.
