HORSEBREAKERS UNLIMITED RANCH RIDING BUCKLE SERIES 2017

 | Published on 9/19/2017
It was  good horses, great mules, awesome people, terrific judges and volunteers and tons of  fun this summer at the HorseBreakers Unlimited Ranch Riding Buckle Series in Dewey, Arizona.

 The summer of Ranch Riding at HorseBreakers Unlimited finished  up on Friday and Saturday September 8th & 9th.  Abby Cosenza was on hand to do a clinic for everyone on Friday, then returned on Saturday to judge the final show of the series.
 
The competition was really fun to watch as the horses  competed against some awesome mules. Roddy and Connie Lara and their CR Mules really put the pressure on. Connie and her mule CR Goldie were the Year End Buckle winner in the Prime Time Ranch Riding  and Roddy Lara with CR Katie won the Buckle in Ranch Pleasure and was the Reserve Champion Over All High Point behind the Champion James Dixon and Music, owed by Diana Richter. James and Music had an amayzing series winning the Championship in Ranch Halter,  the Green Horse Ranch Riding Buckle, the Open Champion Ranch Riding and was the Overall High Point for the Buckle Series! Three Buckles! Congratulations.

Abby also judged the May show.  After the show on Saturday she complimented everyone on “How much everyone's riding and horse show skills improved over the summer!”  Many of the series winners were determined at the final show, so having a Judge with Abby's credentials was extra important.

 Jon and Marywade Gilbert of HorseBreakers Unlimited would like to thank all of the people who participated in our shows this year and look forward to seeing them all again next year.  The shows will start up again on the second Saturday of April 2018 and will continue through the spring and summer.
