Stuart Bozeman, from Lubbock Texas, was awestruck when he claimed the Non Pro Classic Championship at the 2016 NCHA Summer Spectacular in Fort Worth.
Stuart rode to victory on Checkers Live Oak by notching up a 221. He won more than $17,000, taking the horse’s earnings to nearly $100,00 and his own to more than $130,000.
Checkers Live Oak was sired by Im Countin Checks and out of Cats Live Oak.
Stuart has a background in reined cow horses and has won a number of titles on Checkers Live Oak in that discipline.
He told CHTO’s Simone Cobb, he had to sweat it out for a while before he knew for sure that he’d won.
Second place was won by Cody Hedlund on Meteles cat with a 218.5 and third went to Kristen Galyean on Im Reydioactive just a half point behind.
