At the National Reined Cow Horse Association Hackamore Classic in Pueblo, Colo., competitors showed in the second of three preliminary events, the herd work. The rider at the top of the results sheet in the Open division – twice – is Zane Davis, Blackfoot, Idaho, who has both the first- and second place horses under his saddle.

Leading the field of Open contenders after two events is Brother Jackson (Peptoboonsmal x Shes Icing Onthe Cat x High Brow Cat), owned by John Semanik. The 2009 stallion has a composite  293.5 on two events (145.5 rein/148 herd). His 148 herd work was the high score of the day.
