Redneck Daisy and Trent Tobin navigate the pole bending course.
It has been a good fall for Trent Tobin and his homebred mare, Redneck Daisy. The duo started off with a win at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in junior pole bending. On November 8, they added another accomplishment to the list: 2010 AQHA junior pole bending world champions.
Despite a stumble at the end of the pattern, Redneck Daisy ran the fastest cumulative time out of 38 competitors.
“She slipped there at the end, but (the run) felt real good,” Trent said.
This win is twice as meaningful for Trent because his homebred stallion, Redneck Jet, sired this 2005 bay mare. Trent has raised and trained Redneck Daisy himself.
Trent drove from Fredericktown, Ohio to compete at the 2010 AQHA World Championship Show. He’d like to thank his wife, mom and dad for making the sixteen hour drive, “and helping out!”
What’s next for the champion duo?
“We’ve have to wait and see,” Trent said. “I am going to keep running her in the poles.”
Look for the pair next year, too.
“Oh yeah, definitely!” Trent said. “We’ll be back!”
