The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is well underway and already naming champions!

The FWSSR is 23 days of rodeo, livestock, and western lifestyle. It lives up to its slogan, “This Thing Is Legendary!” Established in 1896, this event has provided over 100 years of fun for the whole family. Each day is filled with horse shows, live music, shopping, livestock shows, and numerous exhibits. A night of rodeo in the Dickies Arena rounds out each day!

As part of one of their horse shows, Makayla Cowan was crowned as the 2023 Youth National Cutting Horse Association Champion. Along with the trophy and bragging rights, Makayla received a $3,000 scholarship from FWSSR. Tristan Moschella was the Reserve Champion. She will receive a $2,000 scholarship!

The NCHA Foundation helped put on the youth cutting, as part of their mission to educate their youth.
