Amarillo in Potter County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Shown in halter competition, Sacred has earned multiple AQHA World Champion and Reserve World Champion titles. The 1995 chestnut mare also has won the All American Quarter Horse Congress multiple times and has earned AQHA Superior in both open and amateur divisions of halter. By Noble Tradition out of Miss Katy Cool, Sacred's success in the show ring can be attributed to her balance, conformation and disposition.
