(Tulsa, Okla., Sept. 2, 2016) – The Tulsa Reining Classic, held Aug. 29 – Sept. 4 showcases the top horses and most talented riders in the industry. On Friday the South Central Regional Affiliate Reining Championships were awarded to the Rookie Levels 1 and 2 and Prime Time Rookie in the Mustang Arena at Expo Square. Also pinned was the National Reining Horse Association Rookie Levels 1, 2 and Prime Time.
Anne Roy riding Cee Another Wimpy took home the win in the NRHA Rookie Levels 1 and 2 as well as the ARC Rookie Prime Time with a score of 145.
Roy has only had Cee Another Wimpy for a year, however she said the connection was instant. Roy also was quick to note that her win on Thursday would not have been possible without the help of her trainers Steve and Ann Marie Archer.
“I have two horses here, so I had an earlier run in and it didn’t go so well. So, I decided when I came in [with Cee Another Wimpy] that I was just going to show. And, being a rookie we get all nervous and this is just such an experience this is my first time in an arena this big,” Roy said with a laugh. “So I just decided we’re going to just show and make the best of it and have fun. I relaxed and let him do what he does best and it was a wonderful run.”
Cee Another Wimpy by Wimpys Little Step out of Cee Another Masota and the duo will try their hand Saturday for a Novice Horse Non Pro win.
Second place in the Rookie Level 1 was Blair Williamson riding Luv A Lil Trouble (Lil Ruf Trouble x A Lotta Dun It) for a score of 142.50. The duo also took second in the ARC Prime Time Rookie.
Second place in the Rookie Level 2 was Kathy Loudamy riding Miss Winnie Tag, by Whiz N Tag Chex out of Ms Lindy Roanstad.
Meyer Clenches Prime Time Rookie
Susan Meyer took home the NRHA Prime Time Rookie championship riding Steppin Down with a score of 143.50.
Steppin Down is by Wimpys Little Step out of Gs Shot Gun Wedding and Meyer said one of his best qualities is his heart. Meyer also noted that the win is extra special for the team, because Steppin Down wasn’t able to compete last year due to injury and being able to compete and try for qualifications this year makes it even more special.
“I had a good run today he circled great he was really hooked up with me and we had a good run,” Meyer said. “I’m really excited [about my win]. It’s always exciting to win and I’m really excited for him, because he’s such a nice horse.”
Second place in the NRHA Prime Time Rookie was Kimberly McAnelly riding FS Taris Walla Whiz who’s by Walla Walla Whiz out of Taris Little Vintage.
