Jenkins and her flashy palomino gelding were a crowd favorite. Amidst the cheers and whistles, the pair executed a near flawless run - one that not only won the Intermediate Open title, but was also good for third place in the Open division.
"I have never had so much fun in my life!" Jenkins, of Temecula, California, exclaimed following the awards ceremony. For the Intermediate Open Championship, Jenkins took home a check for $30,612, a saddle sponsored by San Juan Ranch, a Gist Silversmiths buckle, a Whisper Bit, product from Santa Cruz Biotechnologies, as well as the traditional NRBC blue crystal trophies and awards. She collected an additional $37,000 for placing third in the Open.
"I'm very proud of him. I knew he could mark big, but it was just about keeping everything together - and he did. I have a great rapport with this horse. I love him - he's just amazing," Jenkins said of her 5-year-old, by Wimpys Little Step out of Dunnits Cowgirl. She added, "I love the NRBC. It's my favorite show and it always has been."
Jimmy Van Der Hoeven and Spooks Eclipse took Reserve honors in the Intermediate Open with a score of 227.5, collecting $18,633. Spooks Eclipse, by Smart Spook out of Chex Drive, is owned by Casey Hinton.
