Eric Schmoyer proved too dominant at the 2016 Mercuria World Finals, taking out the $15K Amateur Title and the show average.
Eric rode Ms Nita to finish the year with more than $17,600 in earnings. He beat Jim Townsend from Washington on MKMiss Trona Cat, who won the Reserve buckle, while Austin Paddock from California came third on AA Wild Way.
Eric, who began cutting about 5 years ago, made the World Finals in the same event in 2014.
Based in Pennsylvania, Eric told CHTO’s Simone Cobb about the challenges of cutting there and the help he got from his trainer Ben Roberson.
