    TEMECULA — Familiar faces as well as fresh ones rose to the top at the eighth annual Shootout held by the Southern California Reined Cow Horse Association, which wrapped up its 2013 show season at Casner’s Ranch on Oct. 18-20.

    Sunday afternoon’s Shootout, which has open, non pro and limited non pro divisions, followed a pair of weekend shows with NRCHA and AQHA approved classes, as well as the “Cut For A Cause” on Friday. The benefit cutting raised $7,000 to go along with another $5,000 from a silent auction, with proceeds going to the Surfers Healing program.

    John Farris and his gelding, Boomba Chic, returned to the arena after a year’s layoff and won the Non Pro Shootout. “Red Ned”, as he is known in trainer Glen Aspinall’s barn, won the 2012 SCRCHA Shootout, then missed 2012 competition to allow for rehabilitation of a leg injury.

    “This year, I didn’t want to ride him a lot,” said Farris. “I just did the minimum number of shows, but we finished here and he did very well.” Taking reserve was Tiffany Neal and Hickorys Mr Chip.

    After taking off 2012, Boomba Chic returned to win his second SCRCHA Non-Pro Saddle under owner John Farris in three years.

    Diamond to the title ahead of 14-year-old reserve champion, Kelsey Lynch.

    Lynch, who has enjoyed a breakthrough year with her older sister’s 13 year-old gelding, Dual Awhittle Doceye, competed in all SCRCHA shows this year as well as at three major NRCHA events — the Stakes in Las Vegas, the Derby in Paso Robles, and the Snaffle Bit Futurity in Reno.

    “It’s been a good year,” admitted the freshman at San Marcos High School, who first rode “Doc” at the 2012 NRCHA Derby — with just three days of riding on him. “This year, I think one of the main things that definitely has helped me is getting used to the horse and trusting him to take care of me. And I’m getting to know what to do to get him where he needs to be.”

    Lynch, who also trains with Aspinall, rides twice a week during the school year, plus two to three Saturday lessons leading up to the show. In the summer, the Carlsbad resident rides four or five days per week.

    In the Open, Aaron Broookshire captured the saddle aboard Stylish N Petite, owned by Allison Dee Tapie. Aspinall finsihed reserve on Michelle Amon’s Moody Blues Brother.
