Riley Chown Wins 2007 NRCHA Youth Limited World Championship

“We’ve been trying to do this for so long!” exclaimed an ecstatic Riley Chown after winning her first NRCHA World Championship on Dolls Skeeter. The duo had earned a 431.5 (214.5/217) and $675.

After the awards ceremony, the 12-year-old had to quickly run back to the barn to return her saddle pad to her father, Robert, who was showing just two classes later in the Open Hackamore. “It was good luck,” explained Riley. “He’s won a lot on it, and I told him I’d like to use it - but he needs it back now. I guess it has even more luck on it now.”

The Youth Limited World Championship class was the last time that Dolls Skeeter, by Dolls Union Jac and out of Abby O Lena, will be shown as a cow horse. “He’s earned it,” said Riley’s mom, Cheryl. “We’re going to start roping on him, and use him as a turn back horse. He doesn’t owe us anything as a cow horse.”

Prior to an adjusted score, Kimberly Ferrante was sitting in third place, but moved into the Reserve Championship slot after her new score – a 428.5 (212.5/216) was announced. Ferrante, who won $562, rode Hesa Chic Magnet, by Hesa Sonofa Dun and out of Chics At The Bar, to the Reserve title.

As in years past, a scholarship in the amount of $1,250 is presented to the Youth Limited World Champion from the National Reined Cow Horse Association Foundation. The Youth Limited Reserve World Champion also receives a scholarship in the amount of $750.

The 2006 Youth Limited National Champion Morgan Holmes held on to that title for 2007. She rode Smart Shooter, by Smart Little Pistol and out of Dial Molly Snip, to the National Championship.

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 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 GASTROGARD, Great American Insurance Company and the Silver Legacy Hotel, the association works to keep the vaquero tradition alive in today’s equine industry.
