We are getting into the final stretch of the 2019 NCHA Futurity which means more Champions are being crowned! It was a big day yesterday with the Limited Non-Pro competitors having their Semi Finals followed shortly by their finals!
Amelia Servin and her new horse Cinca De Matallica (Metallic Cat x Cinca De Maya) had a great start to their career together taking home the Championship! They marked a solid 215 for the win in a tough group of cattle. Amelia was of course thrilled with the results after traveling all the way from Australia to compete in this year’s Futurity! This duo was not only a perfect fit but also, the little mare is part of a royal bloodline that will be fun to be a part of later in the her life. The win allowed them to take home an $11,909 check. It was obvious that Amelia had a wonderful group with her as they cheered her on during the run and also at the conclusion of the class. It is fun to see a who new group coming and being a part of this show, and having success!

The Reserve Championship was split three ways between Maura Costa riding Moe Beta (Bet Hesa Cat x Sweet Smoke Lena), Jennifer Rector riding Smooth Bettin Annie (Smooth As A Cat x Bet On Houston), and Alexa Dahl riding Smoothie Lou Who (Smooth As A Cat x Reyl Money). All three lovely ladies had great runs, again in a tough situation. Their horses all gave it their all after a long day each receiving a $10,064 check! It is amazing to see how much these three-year olds have grown up through the experience of the show. Yesterday was a huge learning experience for all of them, and these teams shined under the pressure!
