The West Texas Futurity is in its final weekend of competition, and on Saturday morning, the 5/6-Year-Old Non-Pro finalists took to the show pen. Out of 15 horse-and-rider teams, Lindy Ashlock and Little Miss One Time took home the Championship, the bragging rights and a check for $10,000.
Ashlock, an Equi-Stat Elite $1 Million Rider, and the 6-year-old mare (One Time Pepto x Puddykat x High Brow Cat), who was bred by Eddie and Barbara Young, topped the first go-round on Thursday when they marked a 222. They improved upon that score in the finals with an impressive 224. This win brings Little Miss One Time to lifetime earnings of more than $143,000, according to Equi-Stat.
The duo had a successful stint in Fort Worth, Texas, at the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Summer Spectacular, where they won the first go-round of the Classic/Challenge Non-Pro and were still sitting at the top of the leaderboard after the second go-round.
“I just try to cut her clean, and she takes care of the rest,” Ashlock said after her winning run.
Brandon Dufurrena and 2015 NCHA Non-Pro Horse of the Year Purple Reyn (Metallic Cat x Miss Ella Rey x Dual Rey) clinched the Reserve title, which was worth $8,700.
