Oklahoma City, Okla., - The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) is proud to announce the newest champions crowned at this year’s Adequan® North American Affiliate Championships.
The spotlight stayed in the family in the Adequan® NAAC Intermediate Non Pro Championship as Tamra Kyle went on to win the title and her son, Reed, claimed reserve honors.
Tamra was seen riding Gunner Git Ya Dun, a 7-year-old mare by NRHA Seven Million Dollar Sire Gunner and out of Gotta Git Ya Dun (by Country Dyna) who boasts more than $72,000 in NRHA competition. “It was a very good day for me!” said an enthused Tamra. “We bought ‘Heidi’ at the end of her 3-year-old year for a customer from Gunny and Monica Mathison. Pete showed her and won close to $70,000 on her and I started showing her regularly this year. I rode for a while with Carol and Steve Metcalf, who helped me with her, and I just love her. She will now be getting some time off, lots of treats and pasture time…she loves to get dirty in the mud!”
In the Non Pro division of the Adequan® NAAC, the PHBA (Palomino Horse Breeders of America) Award went to Gotta Git Ya Dun. “We’re happy to be able to present something to enhance our relationship and grow together,” said Louis Hufnagel, President of the PHBA. “This is the second trophy that we awarded here and everybody was just as thrilled as we were.”
Aboard Zins Smart Wrangler (Starlights Wrangler x Smart Rowdy Lady x Smart Chic Olena), Reed Kyle won the Adequan® NAAC Limited Non Pro Championship and earned the co-reserve championship in the NAAC Novice Horse Non Pro Level 1.
