Kaitlyn Hurst Wins 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity Youth Limited on Anuther Smart Chic

At last year’s National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, Kaitlyn Hurst rode Anuther Smart Chic to a Youth Limited Reserve Championship. But in 2008, the 16-year-old managed to win the title with a score of 291!

“He was really good in the reining. He was kind of uptight, so I put my hand down and let him choose what speed he wanted to go. He waited for me,” Hurst explained of her gelding, by Smart Chic Olena. “In the boxing he was a really good boy, too. He was listening really well, so I was able to get him close to the cow and make it move.”

The Granite Bay, California, teen won a Gist Silversmiths Champion Buckle, sponsored by Jay Holmes and Triple J Ranch, a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, Platinum Performance, and, most importantly, $900.

Hurst began riding reining horses four years ago, but after her sister, Nichole, began riding cow horses, Kaitlyn decided she wanted to give it a try. “We bought this horse after I retired my first reiner. He was strictly a reiner, and when we came here last year, he had about four months on cows.”

The high school junior was quick to thank her trainer, David Hanson. “He’s done an incredible job with my horse, and I really appreciate it.”

Walker Pozzi earned the Reserve Championship and $750 on Lady Tom Tucker. Along with the cash, their score of 285.5 was also rewarded with a Cinch monogrammed vest from Wayne Hodges 4-Star Trailers/Outlaw Conversions, and Platinum Performance.

The Snaffle Bit Futurity, held through October 5 at the Reno Livestock Events Center, will pay out over $1.3 million dollars over 15 days.

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.
