Western Horseman Stock Horse World Show held in Abilene, Texas

Cromeplated Sidekick left little doubt that he was the top Open horse at the 2020 the Western Horseman Stock Horse World Show held in Abilene, Texas. The 2009 grey gelding dominated the competition, winning cow work, stock horse trail and stock horse pleasure for owner Linda Bouziden-Lackey of Collinsville, Texas.

Typically Linda is in the saddle at the stock horse events, but at the World Show, she trusted the reins to Mike Major of Bowie, Texas, while she watched from the stands. The duo won both go-rounds of competition, raking in $1,174 plus prizes and a world show buckle sponsored by Stormcloud clothing.

Despite the challenges of 2020, this was the ninth show for Stock Horse of Texas this year. All shows had strong numbers, and the world championship show was no different. Due to the show size, managers added a day of competition and as well as evening events including the Classic Equine Fence Work Showcase and Youth Freestyle Reining, sponsored by Elliott Ranches. Horses compete in reining, cow work, stock horse trail and stock horse pleasure in a two go-round format with prizes and payout presented for each round. In total, the show featured more than 1,800 entries and awarded $80,000-plus in cash and prizes. (Photo by Willie Gomez Photos.)
