Zippo Pine Bar is the leading Western Pleasure sire of Quarter Horses.



Zippo Pine Bar was a 1969 sorrel son of Zippo Pat Bars out of Dollie Pine, a daughter of Poco Pine.[1] Poco Pine was a son of Poco Bueno. Dollie Pine's dam was a descendant of Joe Moore, a half brother to Joe Reed P-3 and himself a descendant of Traveler.[1]

Norman Reynolds bought Zippo Pine Bar as a weanling at Lloyd Geweke's dispersal sale in 1969, hoping for a halter horse.[2]

During his show career, he earned from the American Quarter Horse Association an AQHA Championship, as well as a Performance Register of Merit and a Superior Western Pleasure Horse Award. He was the 1972 AQHA High Point Junior Western Pleasure Stallion and the 1972 AQHA High Point Junior Western Riding Horse.[3][4] He was inducted into the National Snaffle Bit Association (or NSBA) Hall of Fame in 1992.[5]

He sired 1648 Quarter horse foals, 68 Appaloosas, and 72 Paints which collectively have earned over 50,000 show points.[4] Five of his offspring have been inducted into the NSBA Hall of Fame - Mr Zippo Pine, Zippo By Moonlight, Zips Chocolate Chip, Zippos Mr Goodbar, and Zippos Amblin Easy.[5] Others of his influential offspring include Melody Zipper, Flashy Zipper, Zippo Cash Bar, Zippo Jack Bar, and Don't Skip Zip.[3] In 1991 his offspring won World Championships in Western Pleasure in the AQHA, the American Paint Horse Association (or APHA) and the Appaloosa Horse Club (or ApHC).[2] He was euthanized on January 12, 1998 at age 29 following a major stroke.[4]

He was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame[6] in 2000.[7]
