Champion horse trainers - Cutting & Barrel Racing with over 32 World Championships.
Both Stanley and Wanda possessed outstanding horsemanship skills and were fierce competitors. Growing up on a ranch in Mason County, Texas, Wanda was horse-back much of her childhood. Once she began barrel racing, she pursued it with a passion. That passion spread to training and teaching others how to be successful in her sport. With many world titles to her credit, she served on boards and committees to help further barrel racing skills and techniques.
Stanley was an accomplished cutting horse rider and trainer. He joined the National Cutting Horse Association in 1950 and finished in the Top 10 standings more than a dozen times. He credits his brother-in-law, Matlock Rose, with putting him on his first cutting horse. Bush also rode blue-blooded Thoroughbreds from Hot Springs to New Orleans.
Stanley and Wanda were both inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2005.
