Nicole Baradat and her mare Spooked Out Chex won the Green Reiner Levels 1 & 2 ! Congratulations to her on her first win! Great job girl!
From the NRBC:
To say Nicole Baradat is excited is an understatement. On Thursday, she and her horse Spooked Out Chex won both levels of the Green Reiner classes with a 72. “This is a first for me. It’s my first win at a horse show. This was my first year officially showing, and this is only my second show,” she shared. “Today was fabulous. I have had lots of runs this week, and we’ve been putting it all together. I had a few unfortunate bobbles the other times I showed, so for it to all come together today is really sweet.”
Baradat grew up riding horses in 4H, before transitioning to western pleasure. “I always loved the reiners and had friends who did it. When I grew up and was able to pick what I wanted to do, this was it,” she said.
She noted that a lot of her success was because of her great mare, Spooked Out Chex, by Smart Spook out of Nu Tuf Lil Chex. “She’s fabulous. She has been there and done that. I was lucky to pick her up last year,” Baradat said. “She has taught me everything I know so far.”
Baradat and Spooked Out Chex will show again in Friday’s Rookie classes. “I thank my trainer Jordan Larson. He has gone above and beyond taking me on this year. I also thank everyone at his ranch. Thank you also to my husband, who is not a horse guy, for coming to all these shows. I have a lot of support,” she said.
