Brody Fitch Wins 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity Youth Bridle Championship on Frosted Pistol Chex

Brody Fitch was waiting in the arena at the Reno Livestock Events Center to receive his Snaffle Bit Futurity Youth Bridle Reserve Championship when he got a pleasant surprise – his score was adjusted to a 283. It was enough to win the Championship, a check for $1,625, a Bob’s Custom Saddle and Gist Silversmiths Gold Buckle, both sponsored by Snaffle Bit Ranch, a Cinch monogrammed down vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, and Platinum Performance.

“I couldn’t believe it,” admitted the college freshman after his award photo. “I was a little disappointed with the Reserve, just because I’ve wanted to win another saddle for a long time. I feel bad for Mary, though, because she really wanted it, too.”

Last year, Fitch and Frosted Pistol Chex had a sixth place finish in the Youth Bridle. “Last year, I felt like I over rode her before the show,” he said. “So this year, I gave her some time off between the last show and this one, and I think it paid off.”

Brody actually started Frosted Pistol Chex when he was only ten years old, and has since won two all around saddles with the mare, on which he also competes in roping events. With one more year left as a youth rider, Fitch hopes to win a little bit more on the mare before retiring her to be a broodmare. “She’s a really nice mare, and I think she’d have nice foals. I’m going to college for a business degree, and I’d like to stay around the horses, so I think it is a good plan.”

Sarah Allen, of Park City, Utah, earned the Reserve title on Colonel Leo Lux with a 282. Although the Reserve title that came after the score adjustment was a disappointment, Sarah still earned $975, a Gist Silversmiths Buckle sponsored by Primo Morales Photography, a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, and Platinum Performance.

It was a big day for the budding National Reined Cow Horse Youth Association program, as the first ever NRCHYA 2-On-2 Basketball Tournament debuted. With help from NRCHA members Ramona Wold, Jackie Roeser, and Annie Roeser, the games began on the 32 team tournament. Round ball action continues on Sunday and Wednesday, and the Final Four teams will be auctioned off in a Calcutta at the Annual Hall of Fame Banquet on October 2, and will tip off on October 4.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association, the governing body of cow horse competition, is responsible for promoting the sport, insuring high standards of competition and educating members and the public about the history and tradition of the cow horse. Through the support of a Corporate Partner family that includes Adequan®, Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers and Outlaw Conversions, Bob's Custom Saddles, Cinch, Inc., Classic Equine, Gist Silversmiths, MD Barns, Platinum Performance, Inc., Nutrena, Quarter Horse News & Performance Horse magazine, the Peppermill Hotel/Resort, Fort Dodge West Nile Innovator, Rios of Mercedes, Merial products ULCERGARD and EQUIOXX, Great American Insurance Company and the Silver Legacy Hotel, the association works to keep the vaquero tradition alive in today’s equine industry.
