A.J. Garcia of La Vernia throws his lasso from astride Dreamers Knight during the American Paint Horse Association’s World Championship Paint Horse Show’s junior tie-down roping class Nov. 6 in Fort Worth. The gelding was later named the world champion in this event and two others as well.
FORT WORTH -- For many, owning a world champion horse is a dream. For a La Vernia couple who spent years working with horses, Dreamers Knight is no dream, since the gelding has captured three world championship titles and three reserve titles in the 2011 American Paint Horse Association Show -- the association’s premier event. . . .
