Getting to Know Rieta Dufurrena
By Lauren Crivelli - January 29, 2016

Creating a champion is something every breeder, owner, trainer and showman dreams of. In 2015, Rieta Dufurrena made that dream a reality with her homegrown red roan stallion, Stevie Rey Von, at the NCHA Futurity. The duo laid down incredible run after incredible run to eventually be named the Champion in the Limited Non Pro with an impressive score of 220. Her family played an integral part in this success story, taking them back to their early days of cutting. “We started from nothing and worked our way up.”

Rieta‘s dad, Ed Dufurrena, has been training cutting horses for the past twenty years, getting his start aboard a mare named Smart Little Boogie. Ed had been training working cow horses and rodeoing, when he was handed a cutting horse to train. “The owner handed her to him and said, ‘Train her,’” Rieta explained. Her dad was taken aback, saying, “I don’t know anything about cutting.” Apparently, all the man had to say was, “You’ll figure it out.” Ed spent many long hours watching and studying successful trainers in the industry, in hopes of creating his own style and program. It worked, and he went on to win several major events with the mare. Smart Little Boogie has continued to be a part of the Dufurrena family as a broodmare. She was the mother to their great mare Nievas, and the grandmother to Miss Ella Rey, a mare that both Rieta and her brother, Brandon, showed successfully. Brandon won the 2013 AQHA World Championship in Amateur Cutting on Miss Ella Rey, and Rieta went back to successfully defend the title in 2014. Rieta also showed her last year in the NCHA World Finals. The siblings plan to continue showing the mare in 2016, in order to finish off her earnings so that she can claim a spot in the NCHA Hall of Fame. “She is an incredible mare. She loves her job. She goes out there and gives 100% everytime,” Rieta shared.
