Jake and Leggs kicked some butt this weekend as well as all this year. Michigan’s #1 announcer owns the horse – Mr Curt – and would love to take home the win! Best of Luck to you all!
- Tell us a little about your horse age, gender and who their daddy is?
“Leggs” is a 7 year old gelding that I started training last year. He is owned and bred By Curt and Renee Yerger, who also own and stand his sire, Lucks Phantom Bug.
- State where you qualified
- Name of Arena where you qualified
Midland Fairgrounds & Barry County Fairgrounds
- What was your placing
1st & 2nd
- How many times have you qualified for the best of the best or are you a first timer?
I have qualified 3 times this year but this will be my first time competing at the Best of The Best.
- Tell us about the arena where you qualified – producers, ground, size of pen?
The first time I qualified was at an NBHA show at the Midland Fairgrounds; the same arena as the Rebel Soul this year (where I qualified a second time). I like the ground in that arena when it is groomed properly. The pattern is a standard NBHA pattern and the arena a decent size.
- What has been your biggest win as a rider so far?
My biggest win so far was winning the NBHA Can-Am show in 2012 on a horse I own and trained; Rebels Snowy Tiger. I won the NBHA 2D state finals on “Tiger” in 2014 as well.
- Who is the one person that made you the rider you are today?
I would have to give most of the credit to my parents. Growing up I rode a lot of untrained horses and I feel that experience has made me the rider I am today.
