2010 Hall of Fame - Stanley Glover Passed away October 9,
Stan was born in 1929 in Benjamin, Texas. He was raised in
ranch country, where cutting cattle from a herd was part of
routine ranch work.
His AQHA show career began in
1959 when he worked for Jimmie Randals in Montoya, New
Mexico. Stan trained, showed and handled the breeding for
the ranch. He showed in all the AQHA classes, except for
barrels and pole bending.
Stan continued showing when
he worked for Dutch Watters, in Cherew, Colorado in the
early 1960’s. While there, he became involved with Western
States Cutting Horse Association as a competitor and later
as a director.
In 1973, the emphasis shifted to NCHA
cuttings. He was showing John Smartt’s horse, Hollywood
Vandal, and finished in the NCHA Top Ten. In 1975, he had
the same results with another Smartt horse, Vandal Ann. (She
was a NCHA Futurity Finalist in 1971).
Stan set up
his own operation in Colorado Springs in 1963. Docs J Jay
was acquired in 1972 and was a major force to Stan’s
breeding operation. Stan took several of Docs J Jay’s foals
to the NCHA Futurity but he was the most successful at the
In the 1980’s, Quarter Horse
News came out with the Top 100 Sires of the Century and Docs
J Jay was on the list. Some of J Jay’s get, that you might
remember, were Doctor Kachina, The Snake Doctor and Doc Bar
King (Stacey Strain Warren’s show horse).
Beverly were married in 1971 and spent 10 years in Oklahoma.
Between them they have three children and two grandchildren.
Stan’s son, John, had a lot of success showing in AJQHA,
NCHA and High School Rodeo cuttings on Doctor Bargo. The
Glovers returned to Colorado in 1994.
Stan has spent
most of his time, since 1996, working for the Ute Mountain
Ute Indian Tribe in the Cortez, Colorado area.
Services will be held at the Baptist Church in
Benjamin, Texas on Tuesday October, 20 at 2PM.
