Julia Beasley, a shareholder in our firm, competed in the 2008 National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Championship Futurity in Forth Worth, Texas in December. The Championship Futurity is for three-year-old horses that have never been shown. Julia entered the non-pro and the amateur class on her gelding, Fiddle Gun. While she and Fiddle Gun didn’t advance in the non-pro class, they went to the semi-finals in the Amateur class. There were approximately 305 horses competing in the Amateur class. Julia and Fiddle Gun were among 46 horses that advanced to the semi-finals. As a result, they picked up a check for making the semi-finals and missed the finals by only one point. Only 25 horses made it to the finals. Julie and Fiddle Gun finished 28th out of 305 horses that were entered.
Fiddle Gun is a bay gelding and is out of the sire, Playgun, and the dam, Dainty Lena. Fiddle Gun was trained by Allen Crouch of Noxapater, Mississippi. Julia will show Fiddle Gun as a four-year-old this year and they plan to enter some major events as well as many shows in the southeast. To learn more about the sport of cutting, you can go to the NCHA website at www.nchacutting.com. This is a fun family sport and the folks involved are wonderful, according to Julia. The website will show you the affiliates in each state and you can find a local show near your hometown.
