Adan Banuelos Rides Away With Two Titles In Idaho

Adan Banuelos had two good reasons to celebrate at the Idaho Cutting Horse Association (ICHA) Futurity in Nampa after riding Armani Blue to victory in the Futurity Open finals and Badboonarising to the 4-Year-Old Open winner’s circle.

Also claiming two aged-event championships at the Ford Idaho Horse Park was Elizabeth Quirk, who rode Dressedin Smartstyle in the 4-Year-Old Non-Pro finals and Reystylin Smooth in the Classic/Challenge Non-Pro Championship.
