Amateur Snaffle Bit Futurity Led by Clay Roeser on Dualyawanna

With the second day of Non Pro preliminaries completed at the 2008 National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, only one more leg of the competition remains to decide the Amateur title.

Holding the lead after the rein work with a 418 is Clay Roeser, of Lemoore, California, riding Dualyawanna. His score of 207 in the herd work and 211 in the rein work has given him a one point lead over the competition.

Roeser comes from a family of great horseman. His father, Jon Roeser, is an NRCHA Million Dollar rider and former Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion, and his grandfather, the late Jim Roeser, is an NRCHA Hall of Fame member. Clay’s uncle, Dan, is an NRCHA World Champion and former NRCHA President.

With only the cow work left, it’s a very tight race for the Amateur Championship. David Diehl, who marked the highest rein work score of the day with a 216 on Chic Zan Nic, is in second with a 417. Diehl and Chic Zan Nic, by Nic It In The Bud and out of Crown This Chic, marked a 201 in the herd work.

Everything can change when the contestants compete in the cow work on Tuesday, September 30. The Amateur Champion will receive a Bob’s Custom Saddle sponsored by Larry & Ellen Bell, a Gist Silversmiths Champion Buckle from Fairlea Ranch, an ESP Wool Top pad from Classic Equine, a Cinch Monogrammed Down Vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers, Platinum Performance, and a custom handmade hat from Shortys Caboy Hattery.
