Now in its 12th year as encouragement for youth living the western lifestyle and keeping it alive, the Lloyd Rypkema Memorial Quarter Horse Award is presented each year at the Black Hills Stock Show Horse Sale.
Rypkema’s Quarter Horse breeding program, strong in the bloodlines of Leo and Three Bars (TB), carries on yet today. Ownership of a 2022 Bay Roan Colt named Frosted Honor Flit (Frosted Redwood x Flit Miss Firewater) and raised on the Open Box Rafter Ranch was presented in the sale ring prior to the Saturday sale to the 2023 recipient Trey Tetrault.
16-year-old Trey is a Junior at Kadoka High School, and the son of Tee and Tabitha Tetrault who ranch north of Vetal, SD.
