Wilson Paint Horses is proud to present their APHA World Champion stallion, “Invite The Artist.”  We appreciate your interest in breeding to this young stallion. He certainly has a bright future ahead of him!

“Johnny” has superior bloodlines, movement, conformation, a show record and a great disposition. All of those desirable characteristics plus he is homozygous for Tobiano to guarantee color every time!

“Invite The Artist” is by leading sire Special Invitation, and out of Ima Rap Artist, who has Superiors in both Open and Amateur Western Pleasure. Ima Rap Artist is by Arapadude, whom himself is a multiple World Champion in Western Pleasure!

Starting his show career as the INPHC Futurity Reserve Champion in Halter as a weanling, “Johnny” was shown lightly as a 2 year old by Alan Fisher and earned an APHA Open WP ROM and was a 2YO Open Futurity Champion and multiple Circuit Champion in WP.  “Invite The Artist” went on to be APHA World Show Top 10 Open 2YO WP and Top 5 in the 2YO WP Slot Class.  At three, “Johnny” was first under both judges at the Reichert Celebration APHA show and was Reichert Celebration Top 5 Limited 3YO Color Western Pleasure and Top 10 Open 3YO Color Western Pleasure. Excitingly, at the 2011 APHA World Show he was named Champion 3YO Western Pleasure Slot Class! He went on to earn Top 10 Honors in the 2011 APHA World Show 3YO WP Challenge and was a Finalist in the 3YO Open Western Pleasure event. What great accomplishments for this young team of “Johnny” and Alan.
