Brody Fitch Tops Youth Bridle at 2009 NRCHA Stakes

On Saturday, March 28, Brody Fitch earned the Youth Bridle Championship on Frosted Pistol Chex at the 2009 National Reined Cow Horse Association Stakes, collective $606 and a CR Morrison NRCHA trophy. The win helped brighten a day that was darkened by a rough fall earlier in the Limited Open Hackamore.

While circling the cow, Fitch's horse stumbled - and both found themselves on the arena floor. But the 18-year-old took the fall as a learning experience. "It reinforced how important position is in the cow work. I didn't let it affect my run in the Youth Bridle - I just went out to do the best I could," he explained.

Fitch at the 11-year-old mare, by Little Peppy Pistol and out of Tuckers Frosted Chex, have had a successful career together, winning cow horse competitions as well as All-Around and rodeo titles. Most recently the pair won both the World and National NRCHA Youth Bridle Championships, and won the Youth Bridle at the 2008 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity.

Fitch plans to train horses professionally, and is currently pursuing a Business Degree at Idaho State University.

Newly elected NRCHA Youth Treasurer Walker Pozzi earned the Youth Bridle Reserve Championship on Lady Tom Tucker, winning $404. Lady Tom Tucker, by Senors Lil Brudder and out of Filoli Dox, is owned by Walker's younger sister, Morgan Pozzi.

Morgan also earned a title at the NRCHA Stakes - the Youth Limited Championship on Cuatro Olena. The Youth Limited title paid $315, and came with a CR Morrison NRCHA trophy.

The NRCHA Stakes are held March 25-29 at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho. The event concludes Sunday with the NRCHA Stakes finals.
