Felipe finished as the top yearling at Arizona's Copper Country Paint-O-Rama in December, 2006. Felipe finished in the top 10 in yearling lunge line at the inaugural 2006 Paint Vegas. He was the top stallion in his class.


Felipe was the top performing stallion in the 2 year old Hunter Under Saddle class at the 2007 APHA World show. He went on to win Reserve Champion Hunter Under Saddle Slot for 3-4 Year Old horses at the Fall Championship Show along with Top 5 finishes in the 3 YO HUS class and in the 3 YO Trail Sweepstakes.


Felipe starting off 2009 over fences with a bang, winning an open jumping show's "Future Jumpers" division. He then went on to win 15 1st place finishes on APHA judges cards in Hunter Hack, Green Working Hunter and Working Hunter in Washington, Bakersfield, Ranch Murieta and Utah.


A good all around horse will halter and trail as well! Felipe won his 5th Reserve Grand Champion at Halter at the APHA Zone II show in Utah. He continued his march towards his APHA Superior Trail title at the Utah show as well on his way to winning the Zone II Open Horse All Around Title for 2009.


This great start over fences culminated in him winning the World Championship in Hunter Hack and the Reserve World Championship in Working Hunter. At the same show, he won a World and two Reserve World Championships "on the rail" and a 3rd place finish in English Trail to complete his march towards the Reserve Champion All Around Open Hunter Type horse at the 2009 Pinto World Championship Show in Tulsa.
