Special Nu Baby and Matt Gaines marked a 234 in the Open Mercuria Finals at the El Rancho Futurity, tying the record high score in National Cutting Horse Association history.
Watching a cutting horse perform its totally-instinctual task of keeping a cow from rejoining the herd is always impressive. But watch this performance by Special Nu Baby, a nine-year-old mare by the legendary Dual Rey, and we think you’ll agree that “Baby” is in a class all by herself:
And the judges agreed, scoring Special Nu Baby and Matt Gaines with a 234 to tie the all-time record high score awarded at a NCHA event. This performance took place on Sunday, September 13 at the Murieta Equestrian Center in Rancho Murieta, California. This mare’s preternatural ability to read a cow leaves us speechless.
Gaines had this to say on his Facebook page:
Special Nu Baby just keeps setting the bar higher, and we look forward to seeing what she can do next!
