Following the path set by his older brother, VS Code Red, VS Flatline won both the Open Two-Year-Old Western Pleasure (shown by Jay Starnes) and the Non-Pro Two-Year-Old Western Pleasure (shown by Kristen Galyean) at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in 2012.
Just weeks later he was crowned the AQHA World Champion Two-Year-Old Western Pleasure in Oklahoma City, again with Starnes in the saddle. While plans were to delay his breeding career to show him as a three-year-old, demand from mare owners changed those plans slightly to accommodate a limited book of mares and still show him during this three-year-old year.
Like his older brother, “Kobe” handled the dual roles with ease, a testament to his great mind and kind disposition. At the 2011 NSBA World Championship Show in August, Starnes showed him for the first time in Junior Western Pleasure and was rewarded with the win. On to the Congress, where he repeated wins in the Open Three-Year-Old and Non-Pro Three-Year Old Western Pleasure. Kristen and Kobe also won the Amateur Western Pleasure, in a tough class of proven amateur pleasure horses.
“I see his mother in him. He’s got her great attitude and it just seems so easy for him, which makes it so fun for me.”Kristen Galyean
Proven in the show arena, VS Flatline has already made his mark as a sire in western pleasure and all around events. At the 2018 AQHA World Championship Show, 7 of the 15 finalists in the Junior Western Riding were sired by VS Flatline or VS Code Red, with the World Champion Cool Cruzen Lady (by VS Flatline) repeating her 2017 win, with yet another record-breaking score.
When the Pleasure Versatility Challenge made its debut at the AQHA World Championship Show, it featured 15 of the top western pleasure/all around prospects in the country. One-third of the class – 5 of them – were sired by VS Flatline and VS Code Red. The overall champion was a Flatline – KM Flat Out The Best, shown by Deanna Searles for Susan Johns. The little red roan mare won the conformation portion and placed third in both the pattern and pleasure portions to come out on top. Florida Georgia Line, also sired by VS Flatline, won the pattern portion of the challenge unanimously.
