Jon Roeser Takes Early Lead of Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Open Bridle Spectacular

The 2009 National Reined Cow Horse Association Stakes kicked up the action Thursday, March 26, with the start of the Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Open and Non Pro Bridle Spectaculars. The Bridle Spectaculars, for horses past their Futurity and Derby years, feature the elite bridle horses in herd, rein, and cow work.

In action at the Idaho Horse Park in Nampa, Idaho, NRCHA Million Dollar Rider Jon Roeser piloted Mister Smart Remedy to the Open Bridle high score of 222 - giving him a 5-point edge on the rest of the competition. Owned by Larry and Sharon Rose of California, Mister Smart Remedy is by Mister Dual Pep and out of Ima Smart Remedy. Although he hails from California, Roeser has a strong connection to the Nampa, Idaho, area - he was raised only twenty miles away in Marsing, Idaho. His brother Dan Roeser, also a top reined cow horse trainer, currently resides and trains out of the family ranch.

A connection can almost always be found among reined cow horse competitors - and the Open Bridle class proved that as Wade Reaney rode Flo N Blu Boon to the second high score of a 217 for owner Jan Little. Reaney, who currently resides in Rupert, Idaho, worked as an assistant trainer for Dan Roeser at the Roeser Ranch in Marsing for many years before beginning his own training program.

Non Pro competition was tough, with accomplished competitor Kathy Wilson riding her mare, Sis Is Smart, to the high score of 210. The Idaho Horse Park has been good to the pair - they won the Stakes Intermediate Non Pro Championship two years in a row!

The Penny Knight/Coyote Rock Ranch Open and Non Pro Bridle Spectaculars will conclude Saturday, March 28, after the rein and cow work. When it's time to take a break from the cow horse competition in the arena, there are shopping opportunities, thanks to NRCHA Stakes vendors which include Couture West, Sue Crane/Silver Lining Herbs, Ray Church-Wood Creations, Mark Mather-Iron West, Jimmy Flores Cowboy Gear, Flynn Saddle Shop, Ricotti Saddle Co., Dave Hack Custom Chaps, Mountain Supply, Outback Stallion Station, Roeser Ranch, 3K Ranch, Adequan, Primo Morales Photography, and Galloping Video.
