Super Horse Challenge 2015 Results

The 2nd annual Routier Ranch Super Horse Challenge was held this past weekend, and a great time was had by all! It was exciting to see local cowgirl Jamie Britton and her horse Hackamore Henry win the event. If you are unfamiliar with the super horse competition, contestants entered in the challenge compete in 5 different events, with the goal of having their horse be named the Champion Super Horse. The same person has to ride the horse in all 5 events, so the rider’s versatility really comes into play as well. Events they compete in include heading, heeling, breakaway roping, goat tying and barrel racing, thus making it a contest that both men and women will be competitive in. Last year’s champion was Chad Miller from Bowman, ND.

Twenty-five contestants from South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming and Montana competed in this year’s Super Horse Challenge and over $5,500 in prize money as well as a saddle, buckles, and numerous other prizes were awarded, thanks to our sponsors-CLARK & ASSOCIATES, WESTERGREN QUARTER HORSES, MEYER FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC, DAKOTA WESTERN BANK, RAHN PERFORMANCE EQUINE, FARM BUREAU INSURANCE (PHIL KISSACK), BLAKE’S TRAILERS, JAEGER HORSE SHOEING, IRELAND PERFORMANCE HORSES, ZOETIS, CIELO CINCHES, TOP PERFORMANCE EQUINE, COW CHIP CREATIONS, LYNN WEISHAAR, AUCTIONEER, and HILLS EDGE LEATHERWORK & BEADWORK.

Although dates have not been finalized for next year’s event, planning has already begun. In an area where there are many great breeding and training programs, the Super Horse Challenge is a great way for people to showcase their horses and programs.
