“Selling the stallions – VS Code Red, VS Flatline, VS The Fireman and VS Phantom Code – is one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever made,” admitted Kristen Galyean. “At this moment in my life, I simply don’t have the time to devote to being a stallion owner. I pray they bless their new families like they have mine and continue to add to the VS legacy for generations to come.”
Kristen Galyean took a moment to reflect on her history with Vital Signs Are Good (Lucy) – the one who started it all.
“Looking back to November of 2002, I could never imagine the ride Vital Signs Are Good was about to take me on,” she said. “At the time, my lifelong goal was to win an AQHA World Championship and although I had come close throughout my youth career, it eluded me until I swung my leg over her. Horses have been monumental in my life and shaping who I am today. There were many heartbreaks and falling short of my goals, but it taught me how to persevere for the things you want. I learned the hard way how to lose and also how to win and the importance of doing both with grace. Most importantly, they taught me to love them first above any accomplishments or accolades.
“Horses took me to heights my mind could have never dreamed of, but the horse that changed the game forever for me will always be Lucy. I could never repay her for what she did for me inside the show pen but it’s the moments outside the arena – our journey together and the bond we shared – that I cherish the most.
“Little did I know God had way bigger plans for me than I had for myself. Lucy continued to bless me through her offspring and getting to show them was an amazing feeling because they were each their own unique reflection of her. I will never forget the 21 years of those incredible moments. To every girl with big dreams, ‘When we pray, God hears more than we say, answers more than we ask, gives more than we imagine in his own time and in his own way.’
“This industry is special and the people in it make the memories that much sweeter and I have so many to thank. Jackie Krshka – thank you for teaching me the importance of never comparing myself to others, only to focus on what I can do that day to be better than the day before. Leigh and Leonard Berryhill – you are family to me and the years we’ve spent together have been some of the best in my life, thank you for all the bareback lunge line lessons on the rope horses, even though I wasn’t thanking you at the time. Aaron Moses – thank you for pouring your heart into the young horses and developing them into superstars, riding behind you makes it fun. Mom and Dad – thank you for always believing in me and allowing me to pursue my dreams. Wes – thank you for always being in my corner and encouraging me to do what makes me happy.
“Next month we will hold a dispersal sale. So why now? What will our future look like? The VS Dispersal is the close of a chapter but not the end of our story in this industry that I love so much. We will continue to raise babies on a smaller scale and my girls and I will continue to show, though our focus needs to be on my husband’s cutting horse business which continues to excel and grow and demands most of our time. Operating two separate disciplines and the breeding operations, in addition to my career in our family auto business, takes too much of my time away from my most important job of all – being a mom to our girls who now are busy in school sports and life.
“It truly has come full circle,” she said. “Vital Signs Are Good is being inducted into the NSBA Hall Of Fame this year and with the VS Dispersal her legacy will be shared with the industry through the amazing babies she has blessed us with. I’ll always be their biggest fan.”~KG
