|Early members recall
that the club had its beginning in 1963 when Shorty Creed and
Tom Peterson were returning to Colorado from a breeder's sale in
Illinois. As they traveled, they discussed the possibility of
forming an association to promote the sale of quarter horses.
After discussing the idea with several people at the National
Western Stock Show that year, they decided to form an area
meeting was held at a motel east of Ft. Collins. The charter
members were: Hank Boehmer, Bill Bonser, Scott Carothers, Meford
Christensen, Shorty Creed, Mark Counce, Pat Garrison, George
Legino, Gene Nix, Leonard Nix, Tom Peterson, Walter Rothe, Bill
Shannon, Charles Swanson and Frank Ulrich. The club sponsored
its first quarter horse sale and horse show in 1964.
