Despite a scary fall in the cow horse, Mike Major and Smart Whiskey Doc prevailed in the Open division, winning the duo’s first SHOT world championship. Mike and “Whis- key” have won several titles together, includ- ing an AQHA Select Working Cow Horse world championship as well as AQHA Ver- satility Ranch Horse world championships in 2009 and 2010. Mike brought Whiskey out of retirement to come to the SHOT world show. He was reserve world champion on Cowpony Express, owned by Diamond JK Ranches and R. Snider. Mike’s daughter, Shanae Major and Chica Shine also earned a buckle as Youth Re- serve World Champion. The Non Pro and Youth titles went to a father and son duo, William and Christopher Lewis. William piloted Shiney Vintage Chic to win the all around on both days of competition. William has worked his way through SHOT’s divisions, starting as a Novice a few years ago and is now a Non Pro rider. The world show win also secured William as the Non Pro Year End SHOT champion. Sidney Dunkel and Bobbie Can Do finished the weekend as Re- serve Non Pro World Champions. William’s son, 12-year-old Christopher

earned the Youth world championship on Col- onels Colonel. The youth title was a very tight race and came down to the last class before a winner was determined. Christopher’s horse, Colonels Colonel is a SHOT Merit Hall of Fame inductee. The gelding has been shown by three different SHOT members during his career.

Jenifer Ingram and Rey Jay Boonsmal repeated as Limited Non Pro World Champi- ons, with Nonie Casselman-Reed and Zeena Lena finishing reserve. Ingram, who had never ridden a reining or cow horse before purchas- ing Rey Jay Boonsmal, has become a steady SHOT competitor.
