The Kiplinger Arena in McCook, Nebraska, saw some cow horse action during the Colorado Reined Cowhorse Association Futurity, which took place Oct. 25-29. Two horse-and-rider duos marked composite scores of 428 during the Futurity Open, and the title was determined based on the highest fence work score.
In addition to a 141 in the herd and a 140.5 in the rein work, San Juan Ranch-bred Rey Chex Dun It (Rey Dual x Chex Cream N Sugar x Chex N Dun It), ridden by Jeremy Knoles, marked a 146.5 in the cow work. That topped Seven S Tina Rey and Kyle Trahern’s fence work score of 142.5. They earned the title for owners Gary and Sharon Romey, worth $1,785. Their fence work score also earned them another $425.
Seven S Tina Rey and Trahern received the Reserve Championship and $1,488. They also collected $213 from the herd work, where they marked a 142, and $170 from the rein work with their score of 143.5.
