Authentic Quarter horses originated when Raelene Higgins wanted to breed a good looking ridden horse. The resultant foal was the Roc Olena gelding Authentic Roc, who over his career amassed an astounding 1244 AQHA points. Roc was a true showman, dominating every event he went in and holding a record of High Point Horse at the AQHA Nationals no less than 6 times in a row! He is now the resident baby sitter at Authentic Quarter Horses, where he takes care of the up and coming superstars of this stud. Obviously, in tribute to this fabulous show horse, Raelene named her stud after him.
Nowadays Authentic Quarter Horses is specialising their good looking ridden horses into the cutting pen, with their superstar mare One Hellofa Spin at the helm. This mare is one to be seen to be believed, with her own fan base this mare attracts crowds who just come to watch her perform in cutting events around the country. One Hellofa Spin's athletic ability and obvious love in what she does results in a spine- tingling spectacle as she works cattle. With ears pricked forward and cat-like maneuvers this mare is astonishing with her ability to block the cow at every stop. The more the crowd cheers, the more animated this mare gets, she just loves to do what she obviously does best. With life time earnings of $153,202.13 One Hellofa Spin is the highest money earning cutting horse in Australia.
One Hellofa Spin has gone onto produce some competitive horses via embyro transfer, one of these foals- a bay filly stamped with her mothers bay good looks, and also sporting a star on her forehead is Givem Hell. This mare is currently competing and also has foals due this year via embryo transfer. Authentic Quarter horses has also bred other outstanding performers such as the 2008 NCHA Open Mare of the Year, Oaks Unchained Melody, the first foal from resident broodmare Oaks Melody, herself a competitive cutting horse- with life time earnings of $24,267.35.
