TEMECULA — The Valley Cow Horse Association held its 2012 Super Show competiton at Sundance Arena on Oct. 27-28 with two shows in two days. The winners went home knowing they had made the most of their last VCHA events of the year.

Also, a couple of riders also went home with a new saddle and buckle, respectively, after the annual Saddle Shoot-Out and Box-Off for a Buckle competitions.

“It was a real good turnout — and a lot of fun,” said Mallory Holland of the VCHA. “We added the Box-Off this year to the Shoot-Out. Boxing has just gotten huge — it’s fun for a lot of people who are just getting into it or the older people who are just kind of doing it for fun or just don’t want to go down the fence.”

Chris Kreig and John Pascoe's Miss Smokin Remedy work their way to a new saddle at the Valley Cow Horse Association Super Show held Oct. 27-28 in Bakersfield.

One rider who went hard down the fence was Chris Kreig, who took the Saddle Shoot-Out on John Pascoe’s Miss Smokin Remedy. He edged Non Pro Bridle star Debbie Wise on her Smartlookingboots by a half-point.

“This is the first time I ever showed her,” said Kreig, 26, who starts most of the 2-year-olds for the Ward Ranch. “Her owner, John Pascoe, asked me if I wanted to show her about three weeks before, and I got on her and started riding her.”

“She’s a good horse,” aded Kreig, who won the VCHA Limited Open Junior Horse year-end title with Robert Klem’s Flash Dancing Angel. “She’s a really fun and easy horse and very talented. She’s easy to go down the fence on — she knows how to do it.”

Winning the inaugural VCHA Box-Off for a Buckle was Jessica Draper riding Shine By Reminic. Draper and “Hammer” also were the VCHA year-end leaders in the Novice Non Pro Limited with 285.5 points — just
