On Saturday night, crowd favorites Trevor Dare and Jerseys Baby Driver added another line to their resume, winning the Level 4 Open Championship at the National Reining Breeders Classic.

Dare and Jerseys Baby Driver, by Yellow Jersey out of Wind Her Up Chic, were first on the ground in the last set of horses on Open Finals night. From the moment they ran into the pen, the roar of the audience was deafening, and those cheers built to a crescendo when the score – a 228 – was announced.

The atmosphere during the 2022 National Reining Breeders Classic Non Pro Finals, held Friday, April 22, was full of anticipation.

When Taylor Zimmerman rode into the Great Southwest Equestrian Center Coliseum on Shining On Ruf, the excitement of the crowd built, and the whoops, hollers, and whistles hit their crescendo when the pair’s score – a 222 – was announced. “The crowd was electric. I was really focused and trying to zone in as much as possible, but I did hear and feel the energy from the crowd,” Zimmerman shared following the Finals.

The Open field is set for the Saturday finals at the 2022 National Reining Breeders Classic. Held at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas, the NRBC is one of the National Reining Horse Association’s largest events, and at the end of this year’s event, the 25th, will have paid out more than $25 million.

Down Right Amazing’s run in the National Reining Breeders Classic Open Prelims was exactly that. Under the expert hands of NRHA $2 Million Rider Casey Deary, the 5-year-old stallion by Gunner and out of Shesouttayourleague marked a 225.5 to top the first section of Open horses in the 25th NRBC at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas. Down Right Amazing is owned by DAG Ventures LLC.

It’s been a salty two days of non pro reining at the 25th National Reining Breeders Classic, held at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy, Texas. Two sections of Non Pro Classic contestants gave it their best inside the Coliseum, and as the preliminary action wrapped up April 19, a bevy of riders secured a place in the Finals on April 22.

The National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) announced Metallic Cat as the association’s first Five Million Dollar Sire.
