2011 NRBC OPEN CHAMPION
It came down to the last horse - twice. As high-scoring run after high-scoring run was displayed during the Open Finals of the National Reining Breeders Classic, it was clear that the winning one would be something for the memory banks.
As Shawn Flarida entered the Great Southwest Equestrian Center on Shine Chic Shine, by Smart Chic Olena out of Ebony Shines, the crowd quieted. Flarida has marked big scores in the NRBC before - he's a two-time Champion of the NRBC, and is the leading rider for the National Reining Horse Association with over $4 million in earnings.
Flarida and Sommers agreed to run-off for the Championship. Flarida and Shine Chic Shine laid it all on the line one more time - and were rewarded with a 231!
