Missouri Mare Snap Crackle Pop Wins Second Super Horse Award in a Row at 2016 AQHA World Championship The little gray mare does it again, but this time Missouri mare Snap Krackle Pop adds the achievement of being the first mare to win multiple Farnam Superhorse titles.

During the past two weeks, the top exhibitors and horses from around the world competed at the 2016 Lucas Oil AQHA World Championship Show at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.

This year, 26 contenders competed for the Farnam Superhorse Award. A Superhorse has not earned a back-to-back title in 15 years, but the 2016 winner broke that streak and is also the first mare to win multiple Superhorse titles.

On November 16, Snap Krackle Pop, who is owned by Twylla Lynn Brown of Perry, Missouri, was crowned the 2016 Farnam Superhorse. The 2010 gray mare by RL Best Of Sudden and out of Brandys Silver Sheik was bred by Masterson Farms LLC of Somerville, Tennessee.

The team earned a total of 31 points with the reserve championship titles in junior working hunter and junior pleasure driving, and fourth place in junior hunter under saddle and ninth in junior hunter hack.

The reserve Farnam Superhorse received a prize package that includes $10,000, plus $1,000 in Farnam product.

Placing third was DT Elenor Shine Whiz, who is owned by George Strait of San Antonio. The 2011 chestnut mare by Shiners Lena Chex and out of Slynking Sugar Whiz was bred by Canyon Horse Sales LLC of Bend, Oregon. DT Elenor Shine Whiz was shown by AQHA Professional Horseman J.D. Yates of Pueblo, Colorado; Dustin Rogers of Pueblo, Colorado; and Kimberly Leiter of Martin, Tennessee. The team earned a total of 22 points by earning the world championship title in junior heading and placing eighth in junior tie-down roping.

Placing fourth in the Superhorse race was Tommy Boon, who is owned by Wayne Hanson of Creston, Iowa. The 2011 sorrel mare by Thomas E Hughes and out of Chitas Blue Boon was bred by Kobie D. Wood of Stephenville, Texas. Tommy Boon was shown by AQHA Professional Horseman Luke Jones of Allerton, Iowa, and Joy Wargo of Collinsville, Texas. The team earned 20 points by placing fourth in junior heading, seventh in junior tie-down roping, ninth in junior pole bending and 10th in junior working cow horse.

Scott Gaddy of Clements, California. BFR Igniting Sparks was shown by J.D. Yates and Dustin Rogers. The team earned 19 points by earning the world championship title in senior heeling.
