It was a busy week at the 2015 NCHA Summer Spectacular when the Amateur competitors hit the arena to vie for the Classic and Derby titles at Fort Worth.
But what really stood out was not just the number of youth competing in the aged events, but the proportion of them taking home the trophies!
Three out of the four Amateur titles were won by 13 and 15 year old competitors!
Cutting Horse Training Online spoke all the winners after their runs.
Fifteen year old John Brengard out-showed his competition to confidently win the Classic Challenge Amateur Final at the 2015 National Cutting Horse Association Summer Spectacular!
Marking a 219, John won on SDP Hydriven Hicapoo, which saw him earn more than $6,000.
John said he also won the Classic UnLtd. Amateur last year.
It was a breeder’s dream come true when Lica Pinkston won the Amateur Derby Final on a home-raised horse at the 2015 National Cutting Horse Association Summer Spectacular in Fort Worth.
Lica rode Stylish Metallic Cat, the pair scoring 219 and a half to beat second place getter Greg Abshire by one point. First place earned Lica almost $6,000 in winnings.
There was certainly no paradox surrounding Blakley Colgrove’s convincing win in the Unlimited Amateur Derby Final at the National Cutting Horse Association Summer Spectacular in Fort Worth.
Thirteen year old Blakely rode Paradox Cat to mark a 220, a solid five points in the lead. It was a big lineup, with 35 competitors making it to the final. The win earned her more than $6,000 in prize money.
Girl on Fire is an apt description for 13-year-old Blakley Colgrove who not only competed three times at the National Cutting Horse Association Summer Spectacular yesterday but who took home two titles!
Blakley riding Vespaa was third last out in the 5/6 Yr Old UnLtd. Amateur Final when she stole the lead from Barney Mac Smith and marked a 220.5.
With nerves of steel, Blakley has now won in excess of $308,000!
