Steve Archer and One Night Roost claimed the National Reining Horse Association Ancillary Intermediate Open at the 2011 National Reining Breeders Classic. The accomplished trainer piloted the 7-year-old stallion to a score of 147.5, collecting $1,050 for owner Carolyn Tellepsen.
“He was good today. He did all the hard stuff well. He turned really nicely and stopped very hard,” noted Archer of Richmond, Texas. “He’s very pleasant to show.”
Tellepsen, who has long supported the NRBC with her husband Howard Tellepsen, purchased One Night Roost a little over a year ago. “Howard and Carolyn have been my customers for almost 25 years,” he said. “They are great people and always have fun horses for me to show.”
One Night Roost has had a successful career. He was the One Hot Reining Horse Futurity Champion, the September Slide Reining Futurity Champion, the 4R Performance Horse Futurity Champion and the Reserve Limited Open NRHA Futurity Champion. “I’m bringing him back slowly the way I like him. We’re going to continue showing this year and maybe move into the Classic Challenge next year,” said Archer, referring to the NRBC’s new program for horses seven years and older.
Jeff Petska and Cornbread N Chicn and Todd Martin on Starbucks For Chex tied for the Intermediate Open Reserve Championship with scores of 142.5. Each received a check or $642. Cornbread N Chicn is owned by Trinity Compress Real Estate while Starbucks For Chex is owned by Adair Reiners LLC.
The NRBC also features a full-slate of National Reining Horse Association-approved classes, which run in the East Arena while the Classic is held in the Coliseum. The National Reining Breeders Classic is the most successful stallion incentive program in reining history. In just fourteen years, the NRBC has grown to include nearly 200 subscribed stallions. Annually, the payout at the National Reining Breeders Classic exceeds $1.4 million. For information on the NRBC, visit the web site at www.nrbc.com or call 580-759-3939.
