Oklahoman Scores Big Win at AQHA World Show
An Oklahoman has set a new record for the highest score at the American Quarter Horse Association's 2014 World Show going on in Oklahoma City at State Fair Park. Dee Dee Boeckman of Kingfisher scored 222 points in the Amateur Reining Finals held on Sunday night. Boeckman won the world championship title along with the coveted gold world trophy, belt buckle and over $15 thousand dollars.

Radio Oklahoma Network's Leslie Smith interviewed Boeckman after her win. She shared that getting to the AQHA World Show has been a long journey.

"Reining is not as easy, as it looks," Boeckman said. "You can be on up on cloud nine one day and down in the bottom the next. It's a very humbling sport but if you are competitive it always keeps you coming back."

Boeckman started reining 14 years ago and it has taken a lot of time and dedication to get to this level of competition. She said in winning her first World AQHA Championship is very rewarding.

"It feels great," Boeckman said. "It's a lot of hard work and its really nice when it pays off."

A horseman is only as good as their horse and Boeckman's 2010 sorrel Quarter Horse mare Ms. Dreamy had a great preliminary and finals. The team won both rounds of competition.

"She was really good," Boeckman. "She was really honest in the pen. She turned really big, stopped really big and she's just a really good minded mare. So she easy to show, makes my job really easy."

In the preliminary competition the pair scored 220 points from the five judges. Boeckman beat her next closest competitor by three points scoring 222 points in the finals, which was a new record score for Amateur Reining at the World Show.

The women are out in force competing and winning in the AQHA Amateur Reining competition with 13 of the 15 competitors were women. The AQHA Amateur Reining Reserve World Champion was Big Creme Chic and Samantha Roper of Hobart, Indiana. Third place was One Smart Pepto and Dana Avila of Temecula, California.

Kyndal Creswell and Flashy Crome Pistol of Washington, Oklahoma finished fourth overall in Amateur Reining. She was also awarded with first place in the level two reining competition.
