Worlds Greatest Horseman Competition 2014

25 Feb

One of the perks of moving to Texas at this time is the close proximity of horse events. Last weekend our family Jac fanpacked up and drove a little over an hour to Fort Worth, Texas to watch the Worlds Greatest Horseman finals. While we were there we not only got to see some great horses but we also met some of Jac’s fans.

The Worlds Greatest Horseman 2014 took place this year during the National Reined Cow Horse Association show, held this year in Fort Worth, Texas.

To compete the horse and rider team must first qualify. Ten rider/horse teams are moved into the actual competition.

The teams then compete in four events back to back; cutting, reining, roping and working cow horse. This calls for a horse that knows it’s job and also has the endurance and heart to compete in this event. The rider is also required to ride the horse in the same bit for all four events.

Here is a short video of this years winning team, Boyd Rice rode Oh Cay N Short.

    Somehow nothing is as impressive as you and Roxy now, they all need to be riding bridleless and saddleless 🙂

    OM… that was thrilling… but, he isn’t near as smooth as I have seen with you… and what was up with his saddle?

    Thanks for sharing this with us, it is very interesting to see how something is always compromised with multi purpose tools.

    Stacy you are probably too humble to realize that you have set such a beautiful standard with all your horses expressions as they work. It does make it hard to watch anything less.
