The first Supreme Champion had everything going for him when he was born ... sired by the legendary Three Bars, and out of 1953 World Champion Quarter Running Horse, Miss Meyers. He didn't have a worry as he greeted a beautiful world at Green Pastures Ranches, Purcell, Oklahoma, where he was bred by A. B. Green.

Suddenly, nature dealt her cruelest blow when Kid lost his eighteen year old mother to colic. Thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Green and her son, Bruce, the little orphan was coaxed onto a formula and survived his first crisis. He became quite a pet and developed a personality that made him easy to work with.

At two, he was put in race training with Roderick D. Kaufman and easily earned his AAA rating at both 350 and 400 yards, earning in excess of $10,000. through his second year at the track.

Kid Meyers was trained and shown by Jerry Wells for his Supreme title. In this horseman's capable hands, he accumulated the necessary points by the age of four and made history as the very first horse to win this award.

The requirements at that time were to earn two official racing grades of AAA, stand Grand Champion at halter in two Class A shows under two different judges, and earn 40 points in recognized Class A shows or AQHA recognized races. To make it more difficult, 15 of those points must have been at halter, 20 points must have been earned at Class A shows or approved races, with at least 8 points in one or more of the following classes: Reining, Working Cowhorse, Western Pleasure or Jumping, and a minimum of 8 in one or more of the following: Calf Roping, Steer Roping, or Registered Cutting.

Point requirements have changed slightly over the years, but still require the AAA racing, halter, and performance points in cattle and non-cattle classes.

Fate struck again when Kid Meyers suffered a fatal bout of colic at the age of seven. It is hard to say what he might have achieved as a sire had he not been lost so soon before his prime. He did leave behind four crops of foals, 23 Race ROMs, including Mr Kid Charge SI-104 ($299,186. 1971 Champion Quarter Running Two Year Old Stallion).
