Billy Allen Inducted to AQHA Hall of Fame


Billy Allen was born into a family of farmers who had working horses, not show horses. He grew up dreaming of being a world champion roper and rodeoed for a while, but in his mid-20s, he started training horses instead. Since he started roping in AQHA, Allen has earned 11 world championships in halter, heading, heeling, reining and working cow horse. In 1976, Allen campaigned three different horses to year-end high-point titles in reining, tie-down roping and team roping. In addition to training horses, Allen established Billy Allen Feed Co. Allen is a 30-year breeder and a longtime judge who taught at the judges seminars. He is a past president of the Kansas Quarter Horse Association and was inducted into the KQHA Hall of Fame in 2005.
