The premier event for the ‘Ride & Slide to America Series’ was the Intermediate Open, in which competitors were vying for the ultimate prize, a 3 day stay with tuition from Shawn Flarida.  Shawn is the highest money earner in the sport of reining (4 Million Dollar Rider), and in June this year was inducted into the NRHA Hall of Fame.  Leading up to the final round Keiran Moses & Scott Glover were tied on equal points and sitting just behind was Brett McDonald ridding Slippery Lil Badger and Brett Hands on Miss Congeniality. The two Brett’s were chomping at the bit for a chance to win the once in a life time opportunity tuition with Shawn. Scott Glover marked a 68 on his stallion Ruff Major, Keiran come out and scored an equal placing with Brett Hands on 69.5, Brett McDonald just behind on a 69. These results made things a little interesting, the top three scores from the qualifiers finished seeing Keiran Moses on Little Gambel Lena winning the major prize, Scott Glover on Ruff Major receiving the 2nd prize a $600 Gift card for a Tom Balding Bit from Pard’s Western Store www.pards.com and a Gift voucher from Kentucky Equine Research (KER) www.ker.com. 3rd prize the Silver engraved G.V.R.H.A trophy bridle was Brett McDonald’s on his Stallion Slippery Lil Badger and 4th placing was Brett Hands on Miss Congeniality receiving a Yucca Flats Saddle blanket proudly donated by Denny from Yucca Flats Company.
