Big League Potential and Kimberley Reynolds
AQHA Professional Horseman Kimberley Reynolds and Big League Potential took home the gold in senior hunter under saddle at the 2010 AQHA World Championship Show on November 19.
Last year, Kimberley and “Bentley” were reserve world champions in senior hunter under saddle.
Kimberley felt very confident going into the class after their success at last year’s World Show.
“I ride a great horse,” Kimberley told The American Quarter Horse Journal. “He gives me a great ride every time. I was really happy with him.”
Kimberley has been Bentley’s trainer and main exhibitor for the past few years and was very pleased with his success.
“He just has a lot of heart,” Kimberley told the Journal in her winning run interview. “He gives everything every time you go in the ring. I’ve never had a bad ride on him.”
Bentley was the back-to-back champion at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in senior hunter under saddle with Kimberley.
The 7-year-old bay gelding by Gota Lota Potential and out of Kizzy Nostra was bred by Richard and Betty Jo Carr of Bremen, Indiana.
This is the duo’s second World Show and their last chance to show together. What’s in store for Bentley next year?
“The Bevins that ride with (AQHA Professional Horseman) Leslie Lange purchased him,” Kimberley said. “Leslie will be showing him next year.”
Bentley was purchased by Jenny Bevins of Amarilo, Texas in October 2010.
