Meet the Models – Western Horseman
The Rider of the west The fall clothing photoshoot wouldn’t have been so pretty without these five gorgeous geldings as models.
When you open the September issue of Rider of the west, you will see the beautiful couple of Daci and Miles Baker, who live in Mountain Park, Oklahoma, on their family’s Rockin ‘B Ranch. Miles, Daci and the breathtaking backdrop of the Wichita Mountains create the perfect backdrop for the annual clothing photoshoot. But we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the horse who also modeled for the photos.
You will see a Flying B mark on some of the horses’ cheeks and will frequently see the name Trevor when you read about each horse. This is because Miles and Trevor Brazile are business partners: they breed, buy, train and sell team horses roping under the company name Relentless Remuda. There are two cohesive elements in the horses owned by Miles and Trevor – talent and good looks – and we certainly capitalized on both for this photoshoot.
Now let’s meet the models.
Brand New Step, better known as “Track,” was a perfect palomino model for the photoshoot. The 5-year-old gelding literally shone in the arena as Miles walked towards him for some action shots. Miles and Trevor plan to show off and spend time herding on Runway before it is sent out for horse sale at Rancho Rio in Wickenburg, Ariz. In March.
At only 6 years old, Hard Rey, aka “Sancho”, has already seen the world a lot and garnered a lot of attention. Miles bought Sancho from his father, Darren, and is now Trevor’s partner on the gelding. Miles had great success with him in the Ranch Horse Association of America show competitions before letting Daci show it to him. Sancho’s good nature and talent as a heel horse impressed Trevor enough to take him to the Lazy E Arena earlier this year for the Bob Feist Invitational, a big venue for a 6-year-old.
Miles’ dad, Darren, got on MCR Zacks Up aka âConchoâ when we shot a few scenes in their pasture with the Wichita Mountains behind us. The cool 7 year old gray gelding sports a Flying B on the cheek from when it was owned by Trevor. In 2020, hooker Joseph Harrison was the American Rope Horse Futurity Association Reserve World Champion on Concho.
The 11-year-old Hez All Tricked Out, “Trick”, is a lead horse for Daci and Trevor’s son, Treston. Trick’s resume includes a National Circuit Finals Steer Roping Championship with Trevor in 2019. He’s a great all-around gelding that the Bakers and Braziles really love to have on the ranch.
You’ll see Rowdy Spook Affair, aka âWallstreet,â on the front page of the magazine story. Miles describes him as an “incredibly exceptional horse”. Miles and Trevor say he’s one of the two best horses they currently have in their chain. Wallstreet is shown in Future Rope Horses on the head and heel side, and Miles uses it for ranch rodeos sanctioned by the Working Ranch Cowboys Association.
