    Chris Martinez on Skeets Nicker wins the SCRCHA’s 4th annual Shoot Out in the Open division, held Oct. 17-18 at Casner Ranch in Temecula.

    TEMECULA — Fans of reined cow horse shows were treated to a good show as the Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association ended its show season with its grand finale, called the Shoot Out. Chris Martinez won the Open Championship riding Skeets Nicker, owned by Mary Jean Yockey.

    In its fourth year, the SCRCHA Shoot Out was a two-day show held Oct. 17-18 at Casner Ranch in Temecula and included a variety of horse-show classes. Throughout the past year, SCRCHA members competed and rode to qualify for the event. Cheers from a crowd of enthusiastic spectators also added to the event’s atmosphere.

    Organizers of the show said they were able to meet their goal of giving away saddles to Shoot Out champions and other additional awards, said Cindy Mendoza, president of SCRCHA. The overall highest-scoring reserve champion also received custom reins, donated by Jimmy Flores Cowboy Gear.

    The Shoot Out finale was held after the last horse show class on Oct. 18. The top Open and Non Pro riders had a “shoot off” in each division—with one go, cow work only. The highest fence score from each division earned the rider a champion’s saddle.

    • John Farris rode his horse, Boomba Chic, to win the Non Pro championship.
    • The Youth division champion was Lauren Lynch aboard Dual Awhittle Doceye, owned by James Putnam.
    • Tiffany Neal rode Docs Master Remedy, owned by Robert and Janet Neal, to win the Limited Championship.

    Support also came from sponsors and SCRCHA members. “The sponsors have been wonderful; we’re very thankful for all the help and support they’ve given us,” Mendoza said. Sponsors included Green Oaks Ranch, Choice Transportation, Pepinic, Mushroom Matrix, Big Horse Feed, California Horsetrader, Smart Fuel, Cuddeback Trailers, Polymer Logistics, Yotta Mark, main saddle-sponsor Tony Zimmerman, and many others.
