Welcome to Australia Desires Blue Trinity (Mecate)


AQHA Reserve World Champion Cutting Horse

Desires Blue Trinity, owned by Cox Trinity Equine LLC, and Chris Johnsrud, resident cutting horse trainer at the Diamond Double C Ranch, have had a successful record from the beginning. Chris Cox is co-owner of the 2007 sorrel stallion, by Mecom Blue and out of Desires Smart Lena, one of Cox's best brood mares. Due to Chris's schedule of clinics, tour stops and commitment to show in the Snaffle Bit Futurity, he had asked Johnsrud to take over the reins when he came to work at the ranch in May of 2010. Desires Blue Trinity, known as Mecate around the ranch, carried Johnsrud to the finals of the 2010 NCHA Open Futurity where they had a accumulated score of 435 and had the 5th highest score out of 595 horses going into the semi-finals. They had a great run in the semi-finals scoring a 217 and securing a spot in the finals.

Following the futurity, the duo went on to compete in the Abilene Spectacular Derby on Saturday, January 8, 2011 at the Taylor County Coliseum in Abilene, TX with the winning score of 227.

The win paid $20,000 and also earned a $10,000 incentive bonus.

This was the first major limited age event win for Johnsrud and Desires Blue Trinity. On Saturday July 30th, the pair competed in the 2011 NCHA Summer Spectcular finals winning 5th place with a score of 219 and earning $20,469. One day prior to showing in the Open finals, he also was shown in the Limited Open division placing 6th and earning $3,714. The team's most recent success was at the Cotton Stakes held in West Monroe, Louisiana on September 12 through the 18th at the Hamilton Expo Center, where they won second place and earned $8,200. They also won the Open Limited. Now to date, Mecate and Johnsrud have raked in a total of over $100,000 in lifetime earnings. Watch for Desires Blue Trinity and Chris Johnsrud in upcoming cutting events, including the Brazos Bash, Weatherford, Texas and the PCCHA Futurity and Derby in Paso Robles, California.

Long time friends of Ray, Chris Cox sold Mecate to Ray & Kelli who are very excited to have him as part of the Trinity Ranch Stallions.


“I like everything about him, but if I had to say one thing I like the best, it would be that he has such a good way of moving. He’s cowy and strong, and he makes things look so easy.”
