Lemoore, California trainer Jon Roeser topped the herd work preliminaries of the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, held September 21-October 4 in Reno, Nevada. Roeser’s score of 222 on Respond Lika Fox, owned by Clear Lake Land & Cattle Ranch, beat the next closest competitor by two points, and certainly got the attention of the crowd at the Reno Livestock Event Center. Roeser and Respond Lika Fox, by Heart Of A Fox and out of SPD Remedys Response, competed on the first day of the Open Herd Work preliminaries as draw 43. The next 200 entries tried their best to score higher, but Roeser and the talented stallion kept a firm grip on the lead.
The former Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion probably had a little foresight when it came to training Respond Lika Fox, as he also trained and showed his sire, Heart Of A Fox. With Roeser at the reins, Heart Of A Fox amassed earnings exceeding $100,000!
At the Annual Hall of Fame Banquet on October 1, Roeser will be awarded a Gist Silversmiths Gold Buckle, sponsored by Bill and Michelle Cowan, and a Cutting Horse Bronze from the NCHA, for the preliminary herd work win.

Roeser was riding Heart Of A Remedy, by Heart Of A Fox out of SPF Remedys Response. The pair started out with a 219 in the herd work, and followed that with a 219 in the rein work. “I drew well in the herd. After that I just had a feeling about the day. He was so soft and responsive in everything we did,” said Roeser, of Lemoore, California.
But the 5-year-old stallion and the veteran trainer weren’t finished. When Roeser saw his cow for the fence work, he knew they had a chance to score big. “I liked the cow from the herd work – I knew it was good. We didn’t stay long on the end. We got a good right turn and got out good for another big left turn. The cow still had a little gas so we circled really fast – it was great,” he said. The judges agreed and rewarded the pair with a 227 – the highest cow work of the event!
Roeser owns Heart Of A Remedy’s sire, Heart Of A Fox, with Karen Twisselman. “We won about $120,000 on him. He was a really nice horse and had a good career even though he had some bad luck,” he explained.
Roeser said, “I thank my wife, Tanya, and my son, Clay, for everything.”

If you haven't heard of it by now.....you will. Down the Fence is currently in production. We're hoping to complete the film in summer 2015. Thanks for following! Check out their website and follow along as they build this great Film. DOWN THE FENCE
Each year, horse trainers journey to Reno, Nevada to vie for one of the most challenging equestrian championships in the world. For the trainers, winning means putting food on the table and hay in the barn for another year, and a chance for a more secure future. For the world, it means another year of survival for a culture at risk and the continued refinement of an art that dates back to the first missions in California. It was an art born out of a practical need for partnership, but the bond between horse and human and the community that grew around that bond are so strong that, defying the odds, it has not been broken—not even by the force of a modern world. Down the Fence profiles three horse trainers on their journey to compete for the championship, revealing their challenges and a rare glimpse into their unique lifestyle along the way. This is a documentary about passion, perseverance, community, and the enduring power of the human-animal connection.
