Watch Mandy McCutcheon aboard Me and Julio mark a 227 to win the Level 4 Non Pro Derby Championship at the Cactus Reining Classic last week!
The Cactus Reining Classic in Scottsdale, Arizona ran last week, and America’s first family of reining had a great show. One of the best non-pro riders in the country — remember when she rode on USA’s gold-medal-winning WEG reining team in Normandy in 2014? — Mandy McCutcheon scored a 227 on yet another one of her great reining horses, a gelding named Me and Julio sired by Gunners Special Nite.
Oh, to have a barn full of horses who could mark 227s:
Not a pro? No problem! Thanks, Mandy, for reminding us that non-pros and amatuers can dream just as big as the full-timers.
