Charlie Wiederholt Wins SWRHA Non Pro Prime Time on Sparkin Personality

Charlie Wiederholt topped the Non Pro Prime Time Finals on Sparkin Personality after marking a score of 218, earning $540. But the Hastings, Minnesota, competitor also earned third place in the Non Pro, collecting an additional $2,846. He took home a Morrison Bronze and a Cruisin’ Cooler for the Championship, and a saddle pad from Kyle Tack for the third place in the Non Pro.

“She felt like she turned good both ways. We may have left a little on the table with our circles, but I was real pleased with her,” he noted.

While some of Sparkin Personality’s peers have already shown at a few Futurities, the SWRHA was only the mare’s second show. She had earned the Non Pro Reserve title at the North Central Reining Horse Futurity in Minnesota, and also won the Non Pro Prime Time.

Wiederholt purchased the mare as a 2-year-old, by Jacs Electric Spark and out of Gyromatic, and noted that she has been exceptional to train. “She’s been great. She’s a real big stopper, a good turner, and a pretty mover. She’s also real nice to look at,” he said.

Wiederholt has had much success in reining competition, including winning the NRHA Futurity Non Pro Championship twice, and the Congress Non Pro Futurity four times. “I really like the Futurity horses, and that’s usually what I do, and only go to one 4- or 5-year-old show,” he said.

The Non Pro Prime Time Reserve Championship went to Ronald Thompson and Lovin Me Good, by Colonels Lil Gun and out of Sugar Baby Whiz, who marked a 215. Thompson, of Whitesboro, Texas, was rewarded with $424, and a John Hoyt bit.

The SWRHA Futurity is held annually at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum in Ardmore, Oklahoma. It runs from October 21-October 26, and boasts added money of over $135,000.
