AMARILLO, Texas — Julie Robin Cain of Stillwater captured the intermediate title in equitation over fences at the 2012 Adequan Select American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show Sept. 1 in Amarillo.
Cain showed her homebred American Quarter Horse, Larks Best Bett, who is a 2003 bay mare. Larks Best Bett is sired by Bett Ohio and out of Arctic Lark.
The Intermediate awards program is designed to recognize exhibitors who have never placed in the top 10 at an AQHA world show in the particular class they are competing in. Intermediate exhibitor status is based only on an exhibitor’s lifetime, combined world show record, not on the number of points he or she has accumulated. Intermediate accomplishments will appear on the official records of the horse and exhibitor.
Intermediate first place winners in each class receive an eight-inch clear globe in addition to a specially designed patch that can be placed on a qualifiers jacket.
AQHA is celebrating the 10th year of the Adequan Select World. Adequan Select World is the pinnacle event for American Quarter Horse exhibitors ages 50 years and over worldwide who must qualify for the event by earning a pre-determined number of points to compete in each of the classes representing halter, English and western disciplines.
The 1,273 entries at this year’s event, representing competitors from 40 states, Argentina, Canada and Sweden, competed for 43 world championships. The show is being held Aug. 24 through Sept. 1 at the Tri-State Fairgrounds in Amarillo.
