Matthew Armenta Wins 2008 SWRHA Non Pro on Sweet Magnum Dream

The excitement at the Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity Horse Show rose to a crescendo at the culmination of the National Reining Horse Association approved Non Pro class.

Jordan Donnelly had the lead of the class with a 147 on Chexable, but that changed when Matthew Armenta, riding Sweet Magnum Dream, came in as the second to last horse and tied that score.

That tie created the inevitable runoff. Donnelly went first, and although the run started out well, a few glitches led to a score of zero.

“They told me that Jordan had zeroed, so I just went out there and let my mare coast. She was true everywhere in both runs. We’re going to the AQHA World Show next month, and I didn’t want to run her too hard,” Armenta noted after the awards ceremony.

Along with a paycheck for $901, Armenta collected a Lawson Bronze and a Champion buckle.

The Whitesboro, Texas, competitor noted that Sweet Magnum Dream, by Magnum Chic Dream and out of JS Sweet N Low, has been an exceptional show horse, making the finals at many major events and earning approximately $45,000. “This mare has been a great little show horse. We own her dam - in fact, I placed fourth at the AQHA Youth World in cow horse, and I also roped calves and heeled on her,” he explained.

He explained that 6-year-old Sweet Magnum Dream will soon have a new career. “I’ll show her at the World Show, and then breed her. My dad and sister might show her some, too,” he said.

Jordan Donnelly and Chexable took Reserve honors after the run-off. The Aubrey, Texas teenager collected $708, and a Rod Teuscher Custom Bit. Chexable is by Inwhizable and out of Megarita Chex.

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.
