It was a tussle for first place in the Amateur Classic Challenge Championship at the 2017 Summer Spectacular in Fort Worth with the title being shared between Jennifer Rector from Rogersville, MO and Bella Anderson, from Victoria, TX.
Jennifer rode Smooth Reyn first out in the first set of a large final of 34 competitors to lay down a solid run of 218.
Her mare is by Smooth As A Cat out of Ruby Reyn.
Jennifer told CHTO’s Simone Cobb she felt like a rock star showing and winning her first major title in the Will Rogers.
Both competitors take home more than $7,300 in earnings for the win.
Thirteen year old Bella Anderson made cutting look easy when she showed The Reyl McCoy and matched Jennifer’s score.
The Reyl McCoy is by Dual Rey out of Cool The Engines.
Bella told CHTO’s Simone Cobb it was the first time she had ever shown the horse.
Third place went to Kim Davis on Red Solo Catt with a 217.
