Wednesday Brings Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure Champions at NSBA World Championship Show
Wednesday’s National Snaffle Bit Association World Championship Show and Breeders Championship Show saw several world champions and Breeders Championship Futurity champions named at the competition continued.
Breeders Championship Futurity classes dotted the show schedule in the Ford Truck Arena. In the Breeders Championship Futurity Two Year Old Non-Pro Hunter Under Saddle, Rebecca Kazakevicius and Not Just Anyhoo (pictured at left) took the futurity trophy cup. It was their third BCF win of the show, having won the Breeders Championship Futurity Limited Open Two Year Old Hunter Under Saddle earlier in the week with Kazakevicius in the irons, and winning the Breeders Championship Futurity Open Two Year Old Hunter Under Saddle with Beth Case.
Kazakevicius calls her mount Horton. “This week is my first time to show him,” she said. “We got him after the Redbud. I was really attracted to him because he has a great trot. He’s going to be my next Amateur Hunter Under Saddle horse, and Charlie Cole will be starting him on driving.”
Sharnai Thompson and It Had To Be Hoo and Jamie West with VS Highroller tied to win the Limited division of the Breeders Championship Futurity Two Year Old Non-Pro Hunter Under Saddle. Both Not Just Anyhoo and It Had To Be Hoo are also by Hot Ones Only, while VS Highroller is out of the great show mare Vital Signs Are Good.
Two Non-Pro exhibitors tied to win the Breeders Championship Futurity Three Year Old Non-Pro Hunter Under Saddle with Sharnai Thompson and Only Blue Couture sharing championship honors with Courtney Brockmueller and Boys Move Over. Thompson won the Limited division of the class.
Shez Dressed Hot and Jennifer Leckey (shown at right) took the win for Dr. Laura and Jerry Bracken in the Breeders Championship Futurity Four to Six Year Old Limited Open Hunter Under Saddle. The four-year-old Shez Dressed Hot is by Hot Ones Only.
