How’s a 2.2-second run, worth $3,140 for the first run back on your best horse?

Ask Shelby Boisjoli, who had a win at Big Spring, Texas, to celebrate on her birthday weekend.

Onna—the 2021 WPRA Breakaway Horse of The Year—has been out from Boisjoli’s lineup at her second job.

“It felt good to be back on Onna,” Boisjoli said of the 7-year-old mare. “The last time I rode her was sometime before the California run. She was in the breeding barn, and we got embryos out of her from Woody Be Tuff and Metallic Mallice.”

More on Onna:

After Onna returned from the breeding facility, Boisjoli worked to get the mare back in shape. She first Onna legged up on her Priefert hot wallker, and has been exercising the mare away from cattle. But she only had the chance to run three calves before Big Spring. Despite the break, and despite her backup horses Lil Punch and Rootbeer placing at ProRodeos recently, Onna was still the natural fit for Big Spring.

“The calves were all walking fresh,” Boisjoli explained. “She just scores so good, so it’s a lot easier on me on walking fresh calves. I can sit still instead of trying to get a pull start.”

Looking ahead, Boisjoli will have Onna on the trailer for the majority of summer rodeos, along with Rootbeer and Lil Punch as backups. She plans to pull more embryos out of Onna in the future and has high hopes for her breeding career.
