Brody Fitch Captures 2008 Youth Bridle World Championship on Frosted Pistol Chex

Brody Fitch spent time in the spotlight on February 6 at the 1st Community Federal Credit Union Spur Arena in San Angelo, Texas. The 18-year-old had just finished competing for a title in the 2008 NRCHA World Championship Show, presented by John Deere, part of the Fort Dodge Animal Health NRCHA Celebration of Champions.

Fitch earned the Youth Bridle NRCHA World Championship on his horse, Frosted Pistol Chex, with a score of 429, earning $525, a Bob’s Custom Saddle sponsored by Jackson Land and Cattle, a Gist custom buckle sponsored by Knight Haulers, a pair of Rios of Mercedes stock boots, a CR Morrison trophy, a CR Morrison commemorative vest, a $2,000 Youth Scholarship, and a commemorative World Championship vest.

Shortly after the awards ceremony, he was interviewed by San Angelo CBS affiliate KLST reporter, Aaryn Valenzuela. After the television interview, the young trainer modestly answered questions from National equine publications Quarter Horse News and The Quarter Horse Journal.

Fitch was happy with his horse’s performance. “I’m pretty excited. I was a little nervous about our cow at first – it was a foot race. I asked Babe (Frosted Pistol Chex) for everything she had, and I feel like she really gave it to me.”

The Idaho State University freshman said he’s uncertain of his plans for the mare he has ridden since he was twelve years old. “I’d really like to breed her to a good stallion, but I’d also like to continue showing her,” he admitted.

Becca Haaland earned the Youth Bridle Reserve Championship on Smart Little Coach with a score of 418. Along with a check for $315, they also earned a Gist custom buckle sponsored by Knight Haulers, a set of custom spurs from Tom Balding Bits & Spurs, a set of Rios of Mercedes stock boots, an ESP saddle pad from Classic Equine, a $1,000 Youth Scholarship, a commemorative World Championship vest, and a CR Morrison commemorative medallion.
