team lphThe clients at Larson Performance Horses know that hard work & commitment are the key to success in the show pen.  The vision of excellence set by Kip & Michael is a big part of their success.

Team LPH has become a lot like a big family; training together, showing together and travelling together.  Each member of the team may step in as cheer leader, confidant or pattern practice partner as situations demand it.  Whether it's getting through show nerves, practicing fundamentals or a difficult pattern, everyone seems to be able to provide what is needed in that moment to encourage each other.  Disciplined goal setting & work ethic is at the core of Team LPH's success.    

Even as often as Team LPH competes against each other, they learn from each other how to capitalize their strengths and build up their weaknesses.  These amazing teammates come together every show season to bring home World Champion & Reserve World Champion titles, Congress wins and numerous all around champions in both the American Quarter Horse Association and the American Paint Horse Association.

We hope you enjoy the gallery of Team LPH members.

    Zanna Sullivan & JZ Wyatt I Zipt

    I started riding with Kip and Michael almlst 3 years ago and have absolutely loved it since then. Before coming to Lucky 13, I had only shown at the 4H level. They introduced me to breed shows and helped me succeed at Paint shows. My horse is a solid paint bred that I have shown at the AjPHA World Show the past two years. We have won multiple world champion titles there. For my last year showing as a youth, I am planning on showing in AQHA shows. I am so excited to have one more year with Kip and Michael before heading to college. They have taught me so much about riding and showing, and make it all so much fun. I absolutely love it at Lucky 13!

My biggest component to help make this a reality are my trainers Kip Larson & Michael Davis.

    Emerson Sullivan & Suddenly Unstoppable

    Emmie is fourteen years old and started riding at Larson Performance Horses in December 2015 when she got her horse Suddenly Unstoppable. She had spent the past two years watching her sister ride with LPH and she knew it was something she wanted to do. “Jackson” is a 6 year old sorrel APHA gelding. When Mike Davis mentioned that Jackson needed a person to love and take care of him, she knew it was her opportunity to get involved. Although they have only been riding together for less than a year, they have made a great bond and great progress together. Jackson is a very good boy and tries his best to give 100% at every lesson. They both are learning a lot and look forward to showing on the Paint Horse circuit.
