As the week-long festivities of Art Of The Cowgirl come to a wrap, Whitney Hall was crowned the 2022 World’s Greatest Horsewoman. Whitney was able to take the win while riding J Noble Dagget (Smart Little Lena x Royal Red Pepto x Peptoboonsmal).
The duo had a composite score of 586.5 to secure them $7,764.00 and the title. They quickly became a crowd favorite during the reining when Whitney showed off her horse’s big stops and quick-footed turn arounds. The crowd was electric for the finals and didn’t stop the noise for the rest of the remaining events.
This isn’t the first time the pair has come close to victory. In 2021, they were the Reserve Champions at World’s Greatest Horsewoman behind Patty Ralls and Solano Cat. This year, they will get to go and represent the ladies at the World’s Greatest Horseman in Fort Worth, February 10th-20th. As champions, they were given a paid-for entry to the event and will be competing against the best in the world in the four events.
Kimberly Fitch was this year’s Reserve Champion. She rode Caynne Cat (Metallic Cat x Hulaote (Doc Quixote)) to a composite score of 582 and $6,211.20. This stallion is owned by Kenneth Jones.
This year, the finals took back 10 girls from the original 72 entered. The competition has grown from last year and the environment that this show has is next to none. From the food to the shopping and all the beautiful ladies and horses, this is an event you don’t want to miss next year.
