Competitors brought what they had to the table and finished the show off with a bang.

The $50,000 Amateur riders were the first in the cutting pen, and in the 31-horse finals, Amanda Standish, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and her 8-year-old mare Divas On Time finished on top with a 219.

The championship title was worth $2,959, and the paycheck pushed the mare (One Time Pepto x Desires Cat x High Brow Cat), who was bred by Rockin 5 Ranch, of Fairhope, Alabama, to an Equi-Stat record of $146,765.

Hilary Watson and Scooter Mcgavin (Smart Lil Scoot x Natalie Rey x Dual Rey) marked a 217.5 for the Reserve Championship, worth $2,492.
