On behalf of the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association California Circuit, I am honored to Congratulate Xtrared aka Stitch for becoming the 2015 WPRA CA Circuit Horse of the Year!
As one of the top 12 Qualifiers to the 2015 WPRA CA Circuit Finals, Christina Richman's good horse Stitch was one of the 12 horses that was voted on, by each Circuit Qualifier, myself Circuit Director and our VP for this award. I believed we should recognize our equine partners in our Circuit that have helped us achieve and surpass our goals.
The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association CA Circuit is blessed to have horses like Stitch among us. We all have enjoyed watching Christina and Stitch make some amazing runs and we look forward to seeing their work as a team each time their name is called. Stitch has shown such heart, grit, talent and love for his jockey that she deserves this award. After coming back as tough as ever after her “down” time, she has shown her love for barrel racing and her unquestioned talent as an athlete.
I would like to invite Christina; on behalf of her horse Stitch to receive this Award on October 16th in Lancaster at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster during the Awards Ceremony approximately 1pm at my trailer.
Scottie Johnson owner of Cross Country Ranch has graciously sponsored an Award for the fourth consecutive year. Stitch will receive a Back On Track 2015 WPRA CA Circuit Horse of the Year blanket that she can wear proudly.
For the third year Justin Insurance has sponsored a trophy that will be made by the AQHA. June Hipple Roberts has graciously sponsored this trophy because this award was significant to her. She treasures a silver tray that her winning rodeo horse Scooter’s Flame received when he was chosen as the C.G.R.A. Horse of the Year in 1974.
